Ali McNamara treats the conflict between the loves of our life and our obsessions with undeniable wit in From Notting Hill with Love…Actually.
Swept up in a love for movies of Gone with the Wind proportions, Scarlett O’Brien sets out to prove to her fiancé and father that her addiction to cinema is healthy and based in reality. In the romantic comedy to end all romantic comedies, Scarlett sets out on a quest replete with big screen action: from a house-sitting job in Notting Hill to three weddings (minus a funeral) to romantic gestures of Sleepless in Seattle heights, culminating in a quest to find her long lost mother. McNamara’s novel is a running movie reference chocked full of humor.
McNamara lends a final touch of silver screen magic to her book with her uncanny ability to write with such vivacity that the reader feels like a spectator at a movie. Quirky yet lifelike dialogues and screenshot-esque chapter staging make Notting Hill with Love . . . Actually an effortless page turner.
