However, it was eventually accomplished through a health and safety act". In order to get the most cooperation from as many Notting Hill residents and business owners as possible, Curtis who himself called Notting Hill home and his team wrote thousands of letters pledging goodwill payments to more than different charities.

When Bernie Hugh Bonneville , unaware of Anna's level of fame, asks her how much she made in her last movie, Roberts ad libbed the number. Bonneville later asked Roberts why she kept changing the figure. The exterior to Will's home— including the blue door —was once owned by Curtis. After the movie came out, the home's new owners—annoyed by all of the fans who came to visit the location—painted the door black. After it was sold again , the door was painted back to blue. He said she had "such a large mouth" and "was aware of a faint echo as I was kissing her.

Nearly 90 minutes were cut , and the theatrical version was two hours and four minutes long.

It was a copy of Marc Chagall's painting, but the producers had to agree to destroy the painting once filming was finished, to avoid the potential selling of a fake. Curtis chose the painting because he's a fan of Chagall and thought the image depicted "a yearning for something that's lost. 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! Jan 05, Courtney Jones rated it really liked it. 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. Jun 01, Novelle Novels rated it it was amazing. She questions why if she is so in love with Sean does Jamie bring something to her life??

The book is full of romance, humour and so much more.. A perfect chick lit book!! Sep 21, Abbey rated it it was amazing Shelves: favourite-chick-lit-reads. 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. 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 Scarlett O'Brien, utterly and addicted to romantic films, has found her leading man.

Scarlett finds herself strangely drawn to Jamie, they appear to have much in common: a love of films and Jamie's search for a parent he never knew. But Scarlett has to ask herself why she is reacting like this to another man when she's so in love with Sean First of all, I've gotta say I adored this book!

Paperback Editions

Actually where we first meet the lovely Scarlett and Sean. Just a pointer for New readers of Ali McNamara's new book, you don't need to have read her first book because the first couple of chapters do explain few things from the first book. This book just topped it off, it was great to catch up with the characters and carry on from where we left off seeing into the home life of Scarlett and Sean but also meeting new characters when we hit New York. They go on a holiday of a lifetime i must say One they will never forget I really did enjoy this book, all the characters were fab and they are mixed in together and the chapters flowed really well, You never once forget a character or get puzzled with the story.

It flows great, a bit like a rollercoaster hehe! I couldn't possibly chose a favourite character because I loved them all! I loved the way Ali describes all the places and scenery in New York which definitely made me want to jump on a plane to there right away! Actually, I just couldn't wait to grab a copy hehe! This book is your typical chick lit book, which you need to curl up with a nice cuppa and some chocolate and get stuck in! The way Ali describe's everything just makes it seem such a perfect city to visit!

I was very envious of her having to research there hehe! If your a big lover of Chick lit films then you are going to love this! Just like in her first book.. I really did love the ending! Ali McNamara has once again done us proud and the whole book is written terrifically. You will certainly laugh, cry, be sad but will feel like you have been on one heck of a rollercoaster at the end.

You must go grab a copy now! Nov 16, Shaz Goodwin rated it really liked it. The story opens with Scarlett and Sean at home in Notting Hill. Off to the gym with best friend Oscar, they have to stop off at the TV studios. Scarlett is mistaken for the new fitness expert for a morning show — this is hilarious. The visuals had me in stitches! From this we intuit that life may not be quite as she expected … Oscar wants to take a jacket to be assessed on the Antiques Roadshow so Scarlett decides to take a dragonfly brooch that belongs to her father. There is so much action packed into their time in New York as Scarlett tries to find out more about the brooch.

Once again family is central to the plot. Genealogy is a passion of mine and I could identify with how Oscar was feeling. This is a fabulous idea and crafted so well that I felt as if I was also on the hunt, going from movie clue to movie clue and meeting each clue holder as I went along. I would like to thank the publishers for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review. View 2 comments.

Mar 29, Simona rated it it was amazing. 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. The excitement is kind of gone.

Scarlett meets a lot of great people, one of them is an actual movie star and the scenes with him are really funny and entertaining. She loves Sean and she misses him. Scarlett is also on the journey of finding out the background of a brooch that was her fathers. What she discovers is surprising and exciting at the same time… And it inspires her to open another business. Getting to know Jamie had a refreshing touch and Oscar had a big part in this book as well.

He just added the so much spark to it.

The ultimate guide to enjoying Notting Hill Carnival

The entertainment factor is really high. I really wanna go to New York now!!! The characters are all so unique and special. It starts with beautiful Scarlett and her movie obsession and goes over to gorgeous and perfect Sean. I think I fell in love with him even more. Jan 20, Laura rated it it was ok Shelves: holby-tv-reading-challenge 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 There's a reason why I dislike chic-literature. She's so one-dimensional, she's pretentious, shallow etc In the first book, she had an endearing Romcom style storyline that totally saved her. Unfortunately, this book is an exact copy of that storyline, just thrown into a different country.

The situations she ends up in are completely ridiculous I'm sure if I almost dropped a set of expensive crystal vases during a charity auction, Bradley Cooper would probably crucify me, not praise and love me even more. It was so predictable - and the way Scarlett abuses her dad in exactly the same way as the last book totally pee'd me off.

And it was obvious what was going on when Scarlett felt a "connection" with Jamie that wasn't love. Though, why was he obsessed with movies as well when that was a trait she got from her mother rather than her dad? Nonetheless it was easy to read, which is the only reason this book got two stars. Jun 30, Agi rated it really liked it Shelves: 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. Going there, falling in love with the city, wanting to stay there And the last chapters when Scarlett is chasing after the clues were just too much for me.

Passar bra ihop

I understand that Ali is in love with the city but I could do without the city guide - although I understand, too, that it must be like this. The thing with the brooch was at the beginning too obvious for me, as well, but I didn't expect how it is going to end, so no harm done : All in all, nice ideas mixed with some cliched ones, but nevertheless - super read. Jul 01, Love Fool rated it liked it. I even recommended to several people on Goodreads. Part 2 felt different and dare I say even childish.

I HATE when authors make a real famous person a fictional character in their book. Also, I didn't like the family drama. Scarlett just needed to explore the city based on the films she loved although, the whole New York trip felt pointless. Is it just me or lately is the new trend to make every sequel to a chick-lit set in New York City? I mean don't get me wrong, I adore NYC but let's move on please. This is my home and I'm crazy proud of it buttttt not everyone needs to travel here to learn a love lesson and discover that their boyfriend is the one.

Jan 20, Ash rated it liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. 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.. 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 sudd I love the writing, and the story as a whole. All of a sudden you just like her when you've just met her.. I like Sean more, and even Peter. And all the coincidences.. Still, I didn't hate it. Mar 18, Chris rated it really liked it. 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 couldn't put this book down and read it very quickly, even though the outcome was pretty predictable. 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 boyfriend's ex is a total nightmare!

A heart-warming story of serendipity and magical co-incidences. Just what you need in the cold snap of March when the snow is on the ground and all you want to do is snuggle up in bed with a romantic novel to keep you warm. Jan 27, Elise rated it really liked it. 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 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. There is a huge plot twist in the book that just makes it so much more interesting and I love how it happens over one simple thing. I just loved how Ali McNamara brought everything and everyone all together over one simple thing.

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.

    Jul 19, Mary Elizabeth Morton rated it it was amazing. The first half of the book is cute and sweet, but kinda boring too But then the main character Scarlett discovers need and charity which she actively persues The ending is delighful, joyful and super duper romantic in a lovely 'rom-com' way that I find endearing May 17, M1ssb3rry rated it really liked it. 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.

    Feb 19, Rachel Stevenson rated it liked it Shelves: read I really enjoyed this book but a lot of it was very predictable! Definitely no where near as good as the first! Jun 25, Talli Roland rated it it was amazing. A cute, fast-paced read. Love catching up with Scarlett. Nov 08, Angela rated it really liked it Shelves: classic-chick-lit. 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! First things first: I do not know what took me so long to finish this book! Every time I opened it I enjoyed what I read, but it took me 6. I relate to Scarlett a lot and I love the mini mysteries that surround her life. This second book, I still enjoyed, but not as much. The location of New York was initially exciting to me being my favorite city, First things first: I do not know what took me so long to finish this book!

    It worked when Scarlett had first arrived because she was just discovering the city, but when characters that did know the city got involved there was just a missing piece. Jan 11, Hannah Polley rated it liked it Shelves: fiction , romance , chick-lit , ali-mcnamara. 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!
