Book Review of Holly's Inbox: Scandal in the City by Holly Denham

I'd previously reviewed Holly's Inbox, which you can read here.  So, I was excited at the opportunity to read and review the sequel, Holly's Inbox: Scandal in the City by Holly Denham.

Holly's Inbox: Scandal in the City   Holly's Inbox

The blurb:
Things are finally going Holly Denham's way: she's in love, she's getting the recognition she deserves at work, and her friends and family have graciously opted to avoid disaster for the moment.  
Just when Holly is starting to settle into her new life, scandal erupts and Holly finds herself - and her inbox -- at the center of a gossip whirlwind that threatens everything she's worked so hard for.

Written entirely in emails, this follow-up to the UK smash hit Holly's Inbox will keep you glued to its pages as the scandal running rampant in the city threatens to ruin Holly's hard earned and long-awaited happiness.

We're back in time to find out what's new in Holly Denham's life -- after she and Toby finally came together.  

They're sharing a flat while working at the same bank.  Holly's at reception with her old friend Trish.  Meanwhile, Toby is doing well as an investment banker.  But the long hours and his lack of energy are taking a toll on their love life.  

Holly's as ditzy and lovable as ever.  And her friends aren't holding her back. 

As things spiral out of control and it seems like Holly is just one cocktail away from disaster, she takes us on a crazy, fun, and hilarious ride.   In the sequel, Holly takes out much of her frustration on drink - which leads to some strange moments and blackouts.  But overall,  Holly's Inbox: Scandal in the City is a entertaining British chicklit and a good sequel to last year's Holly's Inbox.
