Fun and fabulous
This book follows the story of production company owner Poppy and the filming of the pilot for her new reality TV show, Date for A Day
I liked Poppy as a character, she is in control but is not afraid to ask when she needs help. She knows her stuff and has a really good team around her who get her vision, the main person being Dave, her director of photography. I loved the supporting cast of characters, they have such fabulous personalities and they feel so real which pulled me into their world and made the story leap off the page. I think the only thing that would have made it better for me is seeing the story from the different characters point of view instead of just Poppy as at times she can be quite overwhelming but this totally fits her personality and doesn’t detract from the enjoyment of the book
The main draw for me with this book was it’s setting, when I was a child we would holiday a lot down in the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset and I have so many fond memories of the area that I couldn’t not read this book and it didn’t disappoint. There were so many locations that I recognised and I think this really helped me to set the scene in my head of what things looked like and that captured my attention
Date for a Day was a slightly strange concept to me, I think mostly because I don’t really watch reality TV, especially matchmaking ones, but it was fascinating to see behind the scenes of how things are filmed and the work that goes into it. There were some brilliant sections that definitely would have made it into the out takes reel and that made me chuckle
There is drama, brilliant characters and an amazing location which is why I would definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy a story that looks at things in a different way but is still totally addictive
