|Summary, etc.:|| Delia Moss isn't quite sure where she went wrong. Everything was going smoothly. Ok, she had a slightly rubbish job working for the council and she hadn't seen her best friend Emma in god knows how long, but she'd been working up to proposing to Paul for months. This. Was. It. But with one annoying little 'beep beep', Delia's life is turned upside down and rather than stick around and commit GBH by punching her cheating scumbag boyfriend (who still wants to be with her) in the chops, she decides the best thing to do would be get some head space and leave for London. But a new city is never going to be the answer, and with a dodgy new job in media PR, where a suspicious yet devastatingly handsome journalist seems to be sniffing around and endangering her job, Delia can't run forever. Where did the old Delia go? And can she get her back?

British author McFarlane follows Here's Looking at You (2014) with another clever, funny tale of redemption and romance. First Delia discovers that her boyfriend of 10 years is having an affair, then she quits her soul-sucking job at the city council communications office. She leaves Newcastle to move in with her best friend in London and gets a PR job. But just as she is starting to rebuild her life, she gets tricked into revealing her boss's shady practices and secret clients to Adam, an investigative reporter. Delia and Adam become friends and more, but she is unsure if he is using her or if the spark is real. Plus, her ex is trying to win her back. As the pressure builds, Delia rediscovers the Fox, the fiery comic-book alter ego she created as a student, and now, finally, she is able to apply the Fox's boldness to her real life. McFarlane muddles things a bit with subplots, but Delia's charm and determination shine throughout this enjoyable tale of self-definition. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
