    • I have been a big fan of Ali McNamara for ages, and I absolutely loved her novel From Notting Hill With Love…Actually. In fact, it has been read so many times that I know the book off by heart. So when I found out that Ali was releasing an eagerly anticipated sequel, I was so excited and could not WAIT to get started on it! I will just state that although this is a sequel and reading the first book beforehand will help you to know who some of the characters are straight away and more of the ba [...]


    • I absolutely loved From Notting Hill with Love Actually and I was really super looking forward to this sequel. I thought Scarlett and Sean were such a great pairing and I especially liked the flamboyant Oscar. So, the sequel had a lot to live up to and as you can guess from the 2 star rating - it really didn't. The story started out OK, but slowly as the story progressed it became more and more and more far-fetched and ridiculous. I won't spoil it by revealing the most preposterous plot twist. B [...]


    • I don't really know how to feel about this book because while I thought the plot (while predictable) was clever and weaved together well, the characters are borderline annoying. I think they are well written and each is developed with enough time dedicated to them - but I just don't find them likeable. The conflict with Sean was forced and he didn't come across well in the book at all. Scarlett is way too perfect. Everyone spends the book telling her she is wonderful and hilarious and kind and f [...]


    • I give this book an infinite amount of stars. This book is my 123rd read of 2012 and I have to say it could possibly be my favourite book of the year. I started it a few hours ago and could not put it down. I only read the first one earlier this year, From Notting Hill with Love Actually and devoured that ridiculously fast as well. Ali McNamara is a fantastic author and has created an amazing character in Scarlett. Much like a certain Becky Brandon née Bloomwood, Scarlett O'Brien has everything [...]



    • Oh dear me, this was dreadful. A wafer thin plot, trying desperately to recapture the zest of the prequel, but not quite managing it. Part of the problem for me was that I worked out the 'big twist' very early on (it wasn't difficult, believe me), and as the tension relied on that twist, the rest of story was sadly lacking in any sort of dramatic tension or frankly interest for me. The main character, Scarlet was hard to like and I wasn't convinced about her relationship with Sean at all, they w [...]


    • This is the first ever book I've pre-ordered on my kindle. I just couldn't wait for it a second longer than I had to. It lived up to all the expectations I had from the first book and then some. Scarlett's character got even more likeable and I thoroughly enjoyed Oscar's exploits. Jamie and Max were an entertaining pair and Peter and the children at Sunnyside were all adorable. I'd advise not to read until you've read From Notting Hill to LoveActually, because together they are pure escapism. Ab [...]


    • I absolutely loved the first book of the series, but felt somewhat let down by this book.All the usually characters were back, and there were a few new ones to get to know. I liked them all, and the plot was good, but I just didn't enjoy it as much.It was all a bit too predictable. I had my suspicions really early on, and then at half way though it was confirmed. What I did love was the movie references at the end. I loved the end! It brought back some of what I fell in love with in the first bo [...]


    • Loved this book. It was such a head warming tale. A real feel-good easy read for a winters afternoon. Not a bad word to say. The first person view point worked really well for this novel where sometimes it can get a little frustrating. Ali McNamara writes beautifully. Highly recommended to all chick-lit lovers out there!


    • Adorable. Initially wasn't fond of Sean's character and thought the Jamie story line was heading some place else, but the final chapter was an absolute dream. Would recommend to anyone looking for a chick flick on a lazy Sunday.


    • Scarlett O'Brien, utterly and addicted to romantic films, has found her leading man. She's convinced Sean is Mr Right, but the day-to-day reality of a relationship isn't quite like the movies. With Sean constantly away on business, Scarlett and her new best friend Oscar decide to head to New York for the holiday of a lifetime. From one famous landmark to the next, Scarlett and Oscar make many new friends during their adventure - including sailors in town for Fleet Week, a famous film star, and J [...]


    • From Notting Hill to New York Actually continues Scarlett’s adventures. I thoroughly enjoyed her escapades in From Notting Hill with Love Actually and couldn’t wait to read about Scarlett’s new adventures.The story opens with Scarlett and Sean at home in Notting Hill. Sean’s had man flu and been at home. We’re brought up to date with their lives. Scarlett’s father has set up a New York branch of their business.Straight away we’re into the fun that Scarlett seems to attract. Off to [...]


    • I fell in love with Scarlett O'Brien in From Notting Hill with Love Actually. She so easily made me laugh, and I adored her love of all things movie related. I was excited to see that there was going to be a sequel, even though we had to wait quite a long time between book one and two.This story picks up shortly after book one. We find Scarlett and Sean settled into the routine of normal life. You get the impression that things are just that, normal. When a book ends and the characters get their [...]


    • I LOVED LOVED LOVED the first book of this series and that’s why I was really excited about book #2. The ending of the first book was stunning and I didn’t expect that at all from Sean.Sean and Scarlett are such an adorable couple and I really wanted to read more about the two of them.They have settled in in his house in Notting Hill now. Sean is away a lot on business and something seems to be missing from Scarlett’s life. The excitement is kind of gone. She decides to go to New York and [...]


    • There's a reason why I dislike chic-literature. They're usually pretentious, far too convenient and the characters shallow, self obsessed and truly annoying. Usually though there's a cute, endearing storyline to redeem the book.I enjoyed the first book in the series so I picked up this one in a deal in Tescos just before Christmas. Scarlett symbolises everything I hate in a chick lit character. She's so one-dimensional, she's pretentious, shallow etc In the first book, she had an endearing Romco [...]


    • Very, very strong 4 stars.Rellay nice, fast reading, sometimes just too obvious and too cliche. Scarlett is just so prone to accident but on the other hand she is a really nice person. From time to time I was really desperate with Sean and wanted to slap him, his questions and investigations were too much for me. Oscar - I adored Oscar, he was the best bit in the book and it wouldn't be such a read without him. Please, I want a book about Oscar now :)Although I must say I'm a little tired with b [...]


    • Scarlett O’Brien, utterly addicted to romantic films, has found her leading man. She’s convinced Sean is Mr Right, but the day-to-day reality of a relationship isn’t quite like the movies. With Sean constantly away on business, Scarlett and her new best friend Oscar decide to head to New York for the holiday of a lifetime.Ughhhhhh this broke my heart. Seriously. I LOVED part 1. I even recommended to several people on . Part 2 felt different and dare I say even childish. I HATE when authors [...]


    • I couldn't put this book down and read it very quickly, even though the outcome was pretty predictable. Another feel good book along a similar vein to the author's other books, except the heroine had already fallen in love in the last book. I did think all the events were a bit too convenient and had sussed out who Jamie was as soon as she met him as there was some serious signposting going on, but the characters were laugh out loud funny, especially Oscar, Scarlett's gay best friend and her boy [...]


    • I saw this book in Tesco one day and I decided to buy it as I'm in love with Richard Curtis' work in films especially Love Actually. I started reading it at the start of this month and at first I couldn't really get into it and I thought I would end up not being able to finish it but then finally after my exams were over I decided I would sit there and just read and I just loved it. There is a huge plot twist in the book that just makes it so much more interesting and I love how it happens over [...]


    • Milking books when there is really nothing to tell. worst. Couples who have to break up in order to get back together, just so there's something happening. This is basically just a chick lit book written by the author to get stay alive. The first book was a long but slightly pretty chick lit. Scarletts story should have just been left there. There is nothing more I want to know about her. Sorry.


    • Loved this! Its really cute, the ending was predictable (of course) but it really was worth the read I am going to read the last book straight away so I don't forget whats going on :)I loved the ending though, that was really cute




    • Scarlett was just as lovable but I found the storyline a little too outlandish (I know it's fiction but it just seemed too much) and a bit predictable. I still loved it though overall!


    • Avevo letto Innamorarsi a Notting Hill una cosa come quattro anni fa e se sommiamo questo particolare con la voglia di leggere una "commedia" romantica ecco che sono di nuovo riapprodata in questa carinissima trilogia. Aveva lasciato Scarlett e Sean con il loro felici e contenti con tanto di titoli di coda finali e ritrovarli così dolciosi e uniti più di prima mi ha fatto davvero sciogliere. In questo secondo capitolo Scarlett deve risolvere un mistero di famiglia riguardante una spilla a form [...]


    • This is the second book in this series and I enjoyed being back with Scarlett. However, she never does seem quite satisfied, even though she has an absolutely amazing life, and that annoys me quite a bit!It is such an easy read and fun that I would recommend this book. Jamie turning out to be Scarlett's brother is very obvious and I was a bit worried reading the book that something may happen between them but thankfully not! It's also a bit of a coincidence that she happens to meet him but it ma [...]


    • I love the writing, and the story as a whole. Except that some of it came off as a bit much, and fake (or should I say, too far-fetched). Too many coincidences and the bits about Bradley Cooper are just meh. It is exciting, but I feel like the author is trying to sell the MC a bit too much for my liking. Also, for reasons I can't really understand, I don't like Scarlett much. She isn't likeable. Not to me anyway. It feels like the other characters are all rushed to just like her. All of a sudden [...]


    • An interesting story throughout I liked the setting of New York for quite a lot of the book. I do think i preferred the first book in the series but that does not mean i didn't like this one. I enjoyed seeing a different side to Sean, the fun of travelling with Oscar and Scarlet being herself once again. It's well worth a read and another book set after this one would interest me too.


    • The first half of the book is cute and sweet, but kinda boring tooa three star rating at this point. But then the main character Scarlett discovers need and charity which she actively persuescreasing my rating to four stars. The ending is delighful, joyful and super duper romantic in a lovely 'rom-com' way that I find endearingking my final rating 5 stars. 💖💖
