Author: Lucy Lord
Pages: 34 Pages
A short story from the hilarious author of A Girl Called Summer – find out what Bella was up to before her Ibiza adventures!
Bella and Andy need to finish packing up their London life before their blow-out ‘Goodbye London’ party tonight. But with a screaming baby, missing moving men and some kitchen calamities, will they ever be ready on time??
A cracking short story that takes place just before the events of A Girl Called Summer.
In the third instalment of the A Girl Called Summer short story prequels we meet Bella and Andy; a young couple with a small child who are currently making the life changing move to Ibiza. However, the closer that they are getting to moving day the more stress seems to be piled upon them. Delivery people aren’t arriving to collect their final belongings, the air mattress that they are sleeping on is deflating and besides all this they have to organise, execute and attend their farewell do. It is all going on.
This is the third set of characters that we have met in this series and it is after reading London Nights that I feel I may have been a bit harsh on my review of the second in the series New York Nights. I felt in the last one that nothing seemed to happen. However, both of these books – whilst less octane than LA Nights – have provided a lot of exposition for A Girl Called Summer. So whilst the tales seem to be quite small they are in fact setting up the stories to come.
Let’s see what the next in the series – Ibiza Nights – delivers.
London Nights by Lucy Lord is available now.
