Back in March 2017 I was delighted to receive a proof of Puzzle Girl by Rachel Featherstone. It took a mere two days to read it and couldn't find any fault in the Bridget Jones - esque read. Today I'm thrilled to publish a review and show off the smashing new front cover as Puzzle Girl has a makeover.

The main plot follows Cassy as she tries to hunt down a man who leaves a clue inside a crossword magazine. Seemingly impossible in this day and age, Cassy persists in trying to hunt down the mystery man but she is slowed down by a devious so and so called Martin. Keeping him at arm's reach, she battles the tough journey she's embarked on and tries to keep her own sanity in the process.

What I loved most about Puzzle Girl is the unique storyline. Hunting down a man because of a clue in a magazine would usually be absurd in real life. But it really works! 

I have to say that I didn't like Martin very much, but that's kind of a good thing as he is initially supposed to be annoying and a bit of a nightmare. Definitely a sign of great writing. Cassy isn't a character I can relate to but I enjoyed reading about her exciting journey and some of the scenes came across so clearly I was virtually there on set. 

Looking back over the book I'd easily recommend that readers who enjoy Sophie Kinsella would love this story and all the characters in it. There's a few laughs to keep you turning the pages and the Dan 'gaydar' made me laugh a lot. A phrase I have similarly used on more than one occasion.

If you're into riddles and clever writing this is a book you need on your TBR pile.
