REVIEW for The Flirt - Kathleen Tessaro

TITLE: The Flirt
AUTHOR: Kathleen Tessaro
DATE: June 2008
GENRE: Chick lit
RATING: 3.5 Stars (Good buy)

I am a huge fan of Chick Lit and I was thrilled to see that Kathleen Tessaro wrote a new novel. "The Flirt" is considered a romantic comedy and the title pretty well covers the subject matter - the author explores the fine art of flirting.

In The Flirt, we find a group of wealthy people living in London who are all in various stages of discontent. Indeed, there are many main characters in this novel including the reverent and delicious Hughie Venables-Smythe (I even loved his name!) who has, it just so happens, a 'PHD" in the gentle art of "flirting" and is more than happy and willing to show off his skills.

Each chapter is told from a different person's perspectives (which is a method of writing that I am not overly fond of). The Flirt is fun and breezy IF you can hold your disbelief - some of the plot does get a little bit farfetched, even for a romantic comedy.

For those who may offend, there is some coarse language, although, honestly, this does not remove from the overall entertainment of this book.

If you are looking for a fun, quick romantic comedy that will lift your spirits, then I recommend this great beach read.
