I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella

I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella – ⭐⭐

Recommended: nope.
Stay away if you like developed characters, original plot, likable characters…. Blech.

Don’t be fooled by the nice cover

Fixie is trying to keep the family shop from falling apart while her mother is away on vacation for a few months. But with her useless sister and pompous brother trying to change the shop from a local favorite to a new-age bourgeoisie boutique, she’s starting to lose her mind a little bit. Oh, and her long-time crush is back in town professing his love after his failed stint in Hollywood. Cue meet-cute with Seb, and the trading of favors back and forth after she rescues his laptop from a ceiling collapse. A long-time love and an intriguing new man both pull Sophie away from the family shop even more.

Characters: flat, main character weak and frustratingly stupid. You have to try to root for someone called “Fixie” due to her inability to chill the fuck out. Good luck with that. Only character I liked was pompous brother’s surprisingly non-shallow lady.

Romance: was there any??

Predictability: the only surprise was the idiotic way the obligatory couple’s fight happened.

Overall felt like this was just checking boxes off a list of “what goes into a story.”
