    I LOVEDLOVEDLOVED this book!! The beginning grabbed me from the get-go and I was hooked until the very end!! Funny, witty and makes you just wish you had a best friend just like her!! You know what she's doing is totally wrong and, not to mention, illegal but you find yourself ma...

    I was in need of a romantic fix, so I picked up Gemma Townley?s Little White Lies. Townley and Shopaholic?s Sophie Kinsella (Madeleine Wickham) are actually sisters, and they both excel in the ?Chick Lit? genre. Kinsella?s books have better-developed characters and plots than...

    About what you would expect from the Shopaholic genre - absurdly complicated scenarios from a ditzy protagonist who should end up penniless living in a room in her parents house but instead comes out on top of the world due a couple of fortuitous chance meetings with random strangers. ...

    I wish I had read some reviews on this book before I bought it. This book is about a small town girl who moves to the city and takes on the identity of the woman who had lived in the apartment before her. I found the protagonist, Natalie Raglan, to be wimpy, ditsy, superficial, and ext...

    This book is about Natalie Raglan, who has left her smaller town of Bath, England for the big town of London. Things aren't really working out how Natalie though they would, she is at home every night, not making friends, and working in a dress shop with the boss from Hell. The past te...

    I was leaning toward a 3, but near the end of the novel the story fell into the chick lit cliche of ridiculous misunderstanding. The main character Natalie is likeable enough, and at least the author provides a reason for her indecision and "gosh, I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings...

    An interesting enough premise, but had some unanswered questions and plot holes. How did Natalie get off scot-free though she impersonated someone else for a few months? Why did no one ever question her identity? The ending seemed rushed and did not provide a satisfying close to the st...

    If the letter Natalie opened was meant to connect Cressida to Simon's father then why did it have Simon's number on it? Anyway, overall I really liked this book. It had some really cute moments, but also had some moments that really bothered me (Natalie's constant justification of ...

    This was actually the first book I?ve ever read written by Gemma Townley. I did not even know about her existence before I stumbled over a blog post by A Woman Reading who wrote about her. Gemma Townley is the sister of Sophie Kinsella and also writes Chick Lit. Since I love Sophie K...

    Little White Lies: A Novel of Love and Good Intentions by Gemma Townley tells the story of Natalie Raglan, a 20-something just looking for adventure. When Natalie quits her job in Bath, England for a more exciting life in the big city of London, she realizes that sometimes adventure is...

    Readable but Natalie struck me as rather dumb and I couldn't get past how we were supposed to sympathize with the other girls in shop when really they're actually "borrowing" (aka stealing) dresses, wearing them, then turning around and selling them as brand new in a very expensive sto...

    I don't know why this was still on my Want to Read list, as I'd apparently read it already. Very much like in Unraveled, Townley spends a goodly amount of time stuck in protagonist Natalie's head. Unfortunately, it seems that there is quite a lot of fiction that relies heavily on th...

    I read this book years ago and decided to reread it since I kept it, but couldn't remember anything about it. It was cute. It took me awhile to get into and it felt very repetitive in the beginning, but gradually I got more interested in the story. Natalie is likable, even though she i...

    This book was so amazing but it pissed me off every time Natalie failed to say the truth,she had cool and great parents,an amazing best friend and awesome workmates. This book teaches us to appreciate and embrace all the things we have in life and that what doesn't kill you makes you s...

    Honestly such a hoot! I will definitely go back and reread when in Rome by Gemma because she's a fantastic chick-lit writer right after Sophie Kinsella! I loved this one and the romance that flourished. ...

    Yeah, it is a book that most people would describe as "Chick-Lit" - and even if I hate that term, it does apply here. The story is full of wish fulfillment and does (sometimes) feel like a modern age fairy-tale. Natalie Langdon (Hero of the story) moves to London on a whim and decides ...

    This book was a fast read and while I enjoyed the book I would not read it again. I found it to be too predictable and there just weren't enough cute moments to make me want to read it again. ...

    I really didn't like the beginning.. It was a major rant but it explained her life so it was necessary.. And honestly she tried not to read someone's mail (as it's shown in the book multiple times) but she did and then the story progresses to a better plot as Simon enters.. Liked it! L...

    This is the type of book that is hard to put down but easy enough to pick up during your kid's swim lesson! Some parts were predictable as with many summer reads but the main character makes some very unpredictable life decisions - the kind of decisions that make you wonder why you are...

    A good summer read! I was reminded of this book while in a store today. I was thinking its exactly like the one she works in in the novel: high end, serving champagne and in my case a French lady trying to convince me I should buy all the dresses because I was trés jolie. ...
