Jenny Lopez Has a Bad Week - Lindsey Kelk

This short story was free on Amazon, so I thought I'd download it and give it a go.

Jenny has moved back to New York after living and working as a stylist in LA. She seems a rather vacuous character, obsessed with labels and shoes and her lack of a boyfriend. She manages to badger one friend into giving her a job and the other into setting her up on what proves to be a disastrous date. The job involves getting a temperamental supermodel to a gig on time. Unfortunately when Jenny gets to the hotel room to pick her up, the model has trashed the room and is heartbroken and refusing to go to the job. Jenny manages to talk her round, gets her to the job and it's all a success. She also manages to find a gorgeous Swedish male model who wants to go out with her, although there's some confusion as she thinks he wants to be her room mate. In the end the friend makes the job permanent, the male model looks like becoming her boyfriend and the supermodel wants to move into her spare room.

I've never read anything by Lindsey Kelk so didn't go into this with any particular expectations. It took me quite a while to get into (considering it's a short story). I don't relate to talk of shoes and designers so I found it really hard to connect with the characters. It wasn't until the supermodel came into it that I managed to find any interest at all. It's now £1.99 on Amazon and unless you're a fan, I wouldn't bother. It is quite a short story and there are plenty of decent full length books for around the same price.
