      Browsing trough my local library's shelf, an amazin and a bit funny book title cought my attention: Where Have All The Boys Gone?With the adorable cover and the fact that it is written by Jenny Colgan, an author I want to check out for the longest time, I just had to borrow it.The story follows three friends in their late twenties. One day, they were just minding their own girly buisness, when they saw an article in the newspaper which said that a single girl in London has a bigger chance to be [...]

      Where have all the men gone? Faced with 25,000 more women than men in London, and gleeful media reports that it's statistically more likely for single women to be murdered than get married, Katie is reached an all-time low. But all is not lost Another hilarious high-concept romantic comedy from Jenny Colgan. While Katie's glad it's not a man's world any more, she'd be quite pleased if there were more men in it - or at least single ones, anyway.This was a cute story but nothing amazing. I know it [...]

      Lovely easy read. A little predictable but wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Some laugh out loud bits and generally a good read!

      Katie & her friend Louise head for the highlands where they hope they'll find themselves a man.but of course, the path of true love never runs smoothly & after causing a stir in the small village, wreaking havoc on a radio show & organising a ball, will the girls finally get the man of their dreams? Don't things always work out okay in Colgan's books?A good read in Colgan's usual stylefluffy, funny & an amusing way to pass a few hours.

    • Danielle says:

      I had higher hopes for this book, Jenny Colgan is a splendid writer in other books of her’s I’ve read Great setting and plot, but I didn’t warm to the characters at all really. A slighter better-than-average read.

    • Lisa Carter says:

      I liked this story for its odd location and likeable main character. Jenny Colgan books are always a fun read.

    • Lucy McLaurin says:

      This was a bit of fun but took a while to get into. Once I was about two thirds in I started to enjoy it a bit more.

    • Annie says:

      Light, easy to read, but a bit predictable. The characters we ok, but not the usual excellent set of folks I have loved from other Jenny Colgans. Still an enjoyable, easy read.

    • NM Hill says:

      Enjoyed the book and the way the author wrote it. Keep you wanting to read more.

      Don’t be too put off by the silly title, this is an entertaining little read with a bit more substance in the plot than it first appears. Yes, the premise of the book is that three (nearing their thirties) friends are panicking as they feel there are no men left in London – a bit of a cliché storyline, but then we get drawn into protagonist Katie Watson and her friend Louise’s adventure to a remote Scottish highlands village called Fairlish – a place which just so happens to have practi [...]

      I’m not a huge fan of chicklit novels, but this was a present from a friend and the premise sounded fun: jaded city girl can’t find a man heads to a small Scottish village where the men outnumber the woman a hundred to one (or something along those lines). The book starts off a little slowly, but once Katie gets settled into her temporary Scottish life the pace picks up. It’s an easy read, good dialogue, funny in places, and I really liked the style of the writing. The plot was simple, but [...]

    • Shannon says:

      I must admit, I do enjoy Jenny Colgan's writing style, I find it very easy to read and can easily sit down on a lazy afternoon and finish one of her books. Though with this book, I did find it to be quite short, in the context of: I reached the half way point and was kind of like why am I at half way already! Not to say it was rushed, but I think it could've been extended a smidgent. This is the first book beyond the cupcake cafe series that I've read from Jenny Colgan, and there are parts where [...]

      My actual rating for this book is 4.5.Ketie is a real city girl, living a real city life, but sometimes she gets a feeling something is missing Unexpectedly, Ketie is sent to a minuscule village in Scotland away from a busy London to do a PR job for the Forestry Department, which appeared to be in a rather difficult situation. There her life takes some unexpected turns and finally Ketie is able to see what exectly she was miising all that timea beloved man and a bit of romance. And just as she r [...]

      Katie, Louise'i de yanına alarak iş için İskoçya'nın bir bölgesine gider. Londra'nın aksine burada kadın başına 15 erkek düşmektedir ;) Amaç ormanlık bir bölgeye yapılması planlanan golf sahası girişimlerini engellemek.Hımm Adı ilgi çekici, evet. Merak edip okudum ve orta düzeyde hoşlandım. Zaten çok da bir şey beklememiştim. Ama sonlara doğru çok keyifliydi :) Kadınların akın akın geldiği yerler ve de parti gecesi iyiydi, sevdim. Onun dışında olaylar kopuk [...]

    • Hollie says:

      This is a really easy book to read, doesn't take long until you're into it. As soon as Katie is in Scotland and meeting the men you know who you want her to end up with, all the way along until a few chapters from the end when you suddenly change your mind and hope that she does too.I would definitely recommend this as a book that you can pick up and put down and still be completely into the story, although its so good you probably won't want to put it down.

    • Rebecca Haslam says:

      I remember reading this book a long time ago and came across it again when having a clear out ahead of moving back to university. Jenny is a great writer, but now I remember why I didn't favour this book over the many others I have read in recent times. Although it is somewhat entertaining, it's nothing special, and although there are a few laughs, as to be expected, I'm still waiting for that one book of hers to come along that will really entertain me.

    • Bodwisebooks says:

      I thought this book was as funny as others Jenny Colgan has written, but with a better story line and much more 'in your face' characters. It was fun reading this and waiting to find out what Katie would do and how it would all pan out. What knowledge of where the shortage of boys are and where the averages are to find more boys than girls to up your chances of finding a partner.

    • Henriette says:

      Cute chick lit, but not as memorable as other books by Jenny Colgan.This was actually the second time that I read this book, but the first was I think more than 10 years ago and I have literally read 100s of books since so I could not remember it. It was good enough to read again when you have no recollection of it at all, but not one I would highly recommend.

    • Susan says:

      It's a while since I've read a basic chic-lit novel however I really enjoyed this. I thought the beginning was a little slow to get going but appreciate that you always have to set the scene and provide a back story.The characters were well developed and you ended up routing for the right choice to be made (and it was)

    • Just says:

      Katie and her friends are jaded by the fact that they will never find men in London while the number of women outnumbers the number of men. Katie then gets offered work in a Scottish town where the men outnumber the women. Bring on the fun and games

    • Leticia says:

      It went on and on for so long that by the time the Forest was finally safe, I didn't care much about all the characters and even less about the core couple - the grumpy Harry, the flaky Kate. They were more than that, but again - it was a bit more dragged on than it shouldn't have been.

    • Lucy says:

      OK, so it isn't "literary" but it's amazing for when you're fed up of having to flick to the explanatory notes at the end of the book and just want the book equivalent of a bubble filled bath. Recommended for a rainy Sunday afternoon (in the bath!)

    • Samantha says:

      I only gave this 4 stars because it's just not quite as good as her most recent ones. I loved the storyline and setting as Scotland is such a magical place. It's a book full of laughs, love and tears which kept me entranced to the very end!

    • Nicki says:

      DNF. Promising start for a chick lit, went steadily downhill in the country setting. Stopped reading by the laird. I do like Jenny Colgan, generally. I find her earlier books generally not as good, though I didn't mind a few of them. Definitely she has improved a lot as an author.

    • Emily says:

      Such a heartwarming read. It made me miss uni (because it is set in the highlands) and the description of all things Scottish in this book were perfect! The writing style wasn't the best I've read but this is a lovely quick read!I want to find my Harry now!!!!

    • Emma B says:

      I got this as a freebie in a magazine and expected it to be rubbish to be honest, but I was pleasantly surprised and liked the plot along with amusing characters and good writting. I personaly wouldnt buy it. think sex in the city gone country

    • Vanessa Vallos says:

      It was pleasant but it took me a while to read it. Too much thing that didnt matterI didnt like that much the character The end is a bit Quick all that for this ending It coule have Been better
