From Notting Hill with Love… Actually

Have you ever felt misunderstood by those you love because you have a passion they don’t share?

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 fiancĂ© 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.

If you’re looking for a whirlwind romance, search no further.
