I received a free copy of this book from the publisher to read and give an honest review.

Synopsis from the publisher:
Dear Holly, isn't it shocking...? Things are finally going Holly Denham's way: she's in love, she's getting the recognition she deserves at work, and her friends and family have graciously opted to avoid disaster for the moment. Just when Holly is starting to settle into her new life, scandal erupts and Holly finds herself-and her inbox-at the center of a gossip whirlwind that threatens everything seh's worked so hard for.

Written entirely in emails, this follow-up to the UK smash hit Holly's Inbox will keep you glued to its pages as the scandal running rampant in the city threatens to ruin Holly's hard-earned and long-awaited happiness.

About the Author:
Bill Surie is the owner of a placement service for receptionists and secretaries in London. He started the as a place to serialize his first novel. His second novel is now in the works and currently lives in England and Spain with his wife and daughter.

My review:
Holly's Inbox: Scandal in the City is the second installment of Holly's Inbox and a book written entirely in emails. The reader is able to delve into Holly's life and learn about her and her friends through their daily emails. I like the concept of the book and it made me think of my daily emails to friends and the topics of conversation and just what would others think about my life if they could read them all. The book is humorous at times and filled with everything from ordinary life to crazy drama. The book is reminscient of the Bridget Jones saga and I think many will find it quite entertaining. The book was just mediocre for me as I found it a bit tedious to read 534 pages of emails.
