Emma came to the states from New Zealand to pursue her acting career. She’s been doing well and is even up for Best Actress. But her drinking is getting out of control and it’s caused a major embarrassment. The awards ceremony is all anyone could talk about. But she drinks for a reason, and she justifies the drinking time and again, she’s just not ready to quit, even if it puts her career at risk.
All the characters in Emma have unique personalities that contribute wonderfully to the overall situation Emma has found herself in. The man who hired her, Blake, is really a great guy and I’m glad that he’s given Emma a chance. Brock is the absolute sweetest with his manners and shining personality. But when it comes to Brock, there’s something special between them and it’s sweet, sexy, and endearing. I even love Emma’s agent Cybil who is especially hard on Emma, but with good reason.
The book is super funny. Emma lands herself in these awful situations that are just too funny and her internal dialogue is hilarious. I can’t even count how many times I laughed out loud. Emma is so well-written and it’s wonderfully edited. I know when I read Broadbent that I’m going to love the book, and Emma is no exception.
