Today I am really excited to be joining the mini blog blitz for When Polly met Olly by Zoe May. Many thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invitation to take read and review this light hearted book.

When Polly Met Olly 2020


My Review

A brilliant light hearted read of pure escapism set in the heart of New York.

Polly is a bubbly vibrant character that you instantly like who is determined to live her dream and be a success in New York. When Polly  lands a new jobs she is sent to the offices where Olly works and she realises that she might fancy him.

This book oozes wonderful characters from the deceitful Alicia, to the charming Olly and her room mate who loves drag in his spare time. There is something for everyone as you explore New York and meet these wonderful characters and spend time with them all.

A light hearted read that will make you laugh and cringe as you read, a great read to snuggle up with on a cold evening and this is now my new favourite book from this author.




Book Blurb

Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…

Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke.

Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse!

But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…

Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Debbie Viggiano.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
