Summary:

Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women dont get visited by ghosts. Or do they?

When the spirit of Laras great-aunt Sadie -a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance -mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadies possession for more than seventy-five years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions. Her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, her start-up company is floundering, and shes just been dumped by the perfect man.

Sadie, however, could care less.

Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common. But as the mission to find Sadies necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different twenties girls learn some surprising truths from each other along the way. Written with all the irrepressible charm and humor that have made Sophie Kinsellas books beloved by millions, Twenties Girl is also a deeply moving testament to the transcendent bonds of friendship and family.From the Hardcover edition.

    Sophie Kinsella is a new find for me. This is the third book my husband and I have listened to, and we really enjoy them. Her format of conversation from the point of view of her main character seems like it should be drawn out and slow, but you quickly get involved and invested in the story. Her books are long and that works since we travel on the road frequently and like the entertainment. We will continue to look forward to her books.

    Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite authors due to her comical stories. All women have secrets that they keep all to themselves and when you die your secret could die too. This story takes you on a amusing journey to uncover a secret that happened to a woman during the twenties who was forgotten by her family. Fast paced, uplifting, right number of characters to follow so you dont get lost in the plot.

    This book got on my nerves.. I love Sophie and I have read/listen to a lot of them but this one was my least favorite.... I could not wait for the thing to end.

    I am not normally a big fan of Sophie Kinsella, but the blurb sounded great so I added it to my list. After the first few tracks I was ready to turn it off, but had nothing else in the car. I continued to listen and LOVED THE STORY. It is sweet, light and perfect for a long boring drive. I am now going to rethink listening to her other titles again. This is a terrific story and absolutely a lovely fun listen. Enjoy!

    This was not even in my top books by Sophie Kinsela! It as totaling confusing and hard to keep up with what was going on. I was not impressed and I really like her work! Was very disappointed!

    Average book. Predictable. I did finish it which shows some interest (usually I just toss if I'm bored.)

    narration kept it moving. interesting story. a little predictable at the end. Interesting concept. not too long, not too short, just right.
