I enjoyed this witty book about a modern thinking woman who finds love gets in her way. However she soon discovers that love can mean more than she had originally anticipated while she discovers herself along the way. A delightful read!

Ms Kramer is a natural storyteller and weaves her story well. She takes us through London's hottest fashion photographer, Claire Montgomery's journey of discovery. Claire is a fun-loving, sex-loving flirt who as a twelve year old stayed up half the night watching old movies, and now lives her life through the quotes of some movie greats - Audrey Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, Lana Turner - their Quotable Quotes are all there in Don't Quote Me. And Claire has other great loves - vintage clothes and marvellous shoes. In fact every major event in her life is she remembers by the shoes she wore at the time.
Claire has some very strict rules by which she lives and one of them is that she believes in monogamy and therefore knows she will never fall in love and marry. Variety in her filled-to-the-brim "Little Hot Pink Book" is her spice of life and settling down with just one "love chunk" is not on the cards. Her weeks are filled with Messrs Monday through Sunday until her world starts to fall apart about the same time as Sebastian Gionis, one of ten finalists for 'Chic' Magazine's Man of the Year enters her life.
This first offering by Ms Kramer is filled with poignant moments plus lots of laughs along the way. Not to mention the surprise ending which gave me goosebumps. I can't wait for the sequel to Don't Quote me.
