Life stinks for Chloe Adams, thanks to her fiancee and modern technology. On the eve of her wedding she is dumped by text message and her life thrown in to turmoil. Humiliated and lost, Chloe wants nothing more than to run and hide from the fallout, returning gifts, cancelling the honeymoon……but Chloe’s Aunt Tess will have none of it! Whisking Chloe away on her honeymoon trip with her best friend Becca, the girls enjoy a five day Mexican cruise but there isn’t enough sun and surf to heal Chloe’s shattered dreams.
Returning home, Chloe draws on the strength of her book club buddies as they encourage her to spread her wings and follow some of the adventures of the heroines they are reading about. Adventure and Chloe have always been like oil and water, but sometimes a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!
Laura Jensen Walker knows the hearts and minds of women and writes them like a dream. Chloe Adams epitomises those of us who treasure safety and security while admiring our spontaneous risk taking sisters. Watching Chloe’s true self blossom throughout the story is a delight. While a little more lighthearted than Laura’s fabulous Reconstructing Natalie, it is a overflowing with book, movie and music references which will have you seeking out your Jane Austen and Agatha Christie novels and giving your DVD player a workout. Filled with Laura’s trademark humour, poignancy and hope, Daring Chloe is a must read. I have high hopes for the sequel, Turning the Paige, releasing in February, 2009.
