You may spot a threatened Zieria, a rare plant with glossy, tough leaves and pink and white blossoms in spring. This is a significant site for the local Aboriginal community. Several years ago when the location was threatened by development, more than members of the community, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, came together to protect this special spot.
Thanks to their efforts, we can all enjoy this unspoiled piece of nature. Coffs Coast. See they don't really wanna pop me Blow! Just know that you never flop me Oh!

She wants to run a diner. As always, the author Miranda Dickinson presents us with another lovely read.

She just has a way with words, Miranda Dickinson is one of my favourite Chick Lit authors, period. She just has a way with words, a way that one day will mean she has tons of books to her name and sold millions of copies. One thing Miranda seems to do best is she consistently surprises me with her fabulous novels. Take A Look At Me Now is her most ambitious yet, and I loved how it all started so auspiciously; with a lime-green post-it note to be exact.

Finding herself out of a job, and without a boyfriend because who wants to be with the man who sacked you?? Two months to enjoy life, travel around San Fran, and get her head together. I was hooked. I adore books set in San Francisco, it sounds like the coolest place to live, ever.

Cooler than New York. If I ever save up enough money I would love to do what Nell did and go live there for a while and visit all the wonderful places mentioned in the book. Miranda did such a good job bringing SF to life that it felt like an extra character. The setting was perfect achingly perfect , the characters were wonderful and plentiful and kept me thoroughly entertained. You wanted to root for Nell so badly, you so wanted her to get everything she ever dreamed of.
It has been absolutely ages since a book has spoke to me like this and it kept me up until midnight just so I could finish it. I cannot wait to buy myself a paperback copy of the book so I can stroke it and read it again and re-visit the amazing locations and characters. It was honestly perfect in every way. Miranda truly is a natural storyteller and she truly does get better with every book she writes.
Nov 07, Chineka Williams rated it it was amazing. This is my First Miranda Dickinson book I am really enjoyed it. You could see San Francisco from the words that were written on the page. Just when you think you know what is going to happen the plot suddenly changes.
I like this aspect of the book because it keeps you as the reader guessing. I was rooting for Nell the whole book and hoping that she accomplished her dream. There is also a love story weaved into the book. Aug 09, Emer A Little Haze rated it it was ok Shelves: library-loan , light-fiction , reviewed , contemporary , 2stars , adult-fiction , read Sep 30, Jamie rated it it was ok. Thanks to NetGalley for the preview. I actually wanted to give this book 2.
Perhaps it's me being nitpicky and expecting too much of what is obviously meant to be a fun read, and I honestly tried to overlook these things, but they just got more and more glaring and eventually I just wanted to finish it so I would be done.

The thing that bothered me the most was the dialogue, particularly once Nell was in San Francisco. None of the characters truly sounded American. It sounded more the way British people think American people sound. I wrote a book with a British character, and I'm sure I did the same thing. But that's just one character.
This was everyone , and after a while, it took me out of the story. Nell complimented Ced on his "hairdo" and he didn't know what she was talking about. Except that 1 Lizzie is British and knows all of these people and most likely used the term once or twice in the past several years and 2 we use "hairdo" in the States. Maybe not when talking about men's hair, but still, not an unfamiliar term.
Also, they kept using the term "partner" to refer to a significant other, and while not technically incorrect, it's not word commonly used in that situation. Well, maybe it is in San Francisco. I've never been, so I wouldn't know. I kept thinking they were talking about partners in a law firm or something, even though I knew that wasn't true. It's just where my brain went. My point is, none of the conversations sounded real. To be honest, none of the characters seemed quite real, either.
Everyone was just too perfect.
Too nice, too helpful, too quirky. Everything happened exactly as I expected, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but when I was already annoyed at the way they were speaking, it just amplified those feelings.
Absolutely everyone was friendly and nice and wonderful. Nell only had one bad experience while waitressing at the diner. The kids were too precocious. I didn't particularly care for anyone, not even Nell -- especially once things with Max went sour and she didn't even give him the opportunity to explain things. And as for what happened, he obviously meant one thing, and she took it the complete, contrived wrong way. While we're on the subject of Nell and Max, they've known each other approximately three weeks but they're in love. We'll overlook that because this is a romance and that's what happens in romance novels.
But it just makes her reaction to the "twist" with Max even more ridiculous, because they have only known each other a few weeks, and the secret that Max "lied" to her about is not exactly something one tells the person they have only been dating three weeks who is going back to her home country fairly shortly.
One other thing that bugged me, though is really just me not being able to suspend my disbelief this much, is that Lizzie took the first week of Nell's visit off so that they could sightsee and be tourists together, and they barely did anything. They did, like, one thing each day, and some days you could obviously tell they were home after lunch. I think one day all they did was go to the diner, and then they were all, "I'm so exhausted.
They're officially the worst tourists ever because they did virtually no touristy things. I had issues with the story as well, but I think most of those were due to my frustration over previously mentioned issues, so I won't mention them.
