The London series, book 7, tells the story of Gina, a London property seller and India, a biscuit company bigshot and TV celebrity. They end up together for business (India needs a home, Gina finds her one) but keep bumping into each other accidentally and later, on purpose.. and then what happens? We know what happens! Hot London Nights by Clare Lydon is sure to be another hit.
There are irritating exes and family conflict, there’s a secondary, historical love story, Pride celebrations, chocolate biscuits and other goodies, plus houses, flats, and rooftops in London.
The main characters are believable and real, like in every Lydon novel this far – they have their ups and downs, successes and failures, and sometimes you feel like shouting at them not to be so pig-headed! I so felt for Gina – been there, done that, got the headache (ugh, mommy dearest).
In the end, we’ve met some old friends (from previous London books), held our breath for the reunion of the secondary pair and seen the protagonists happily together, as it should be.
Last but not least: when a book is sapphic, funny and at least 50% of it is a love letter to London, what’s not to like? Personally, I think this might be the best of the series yet.
