BLOG TOUR – Unscripted by Claire Hanscombe @bookishclaire #bookreview #bookstagram

Today I am thrilled to be part of the Blog Tour for UNSCRIPTED by Claire Handscombe

Unscripted

Author: Claire Handscombe

Publication Date: 4th April 2019

Nobody is a bigger fan of actor Thomas Cassidy than Libby is. Nobody. That’s why she’s totally going to marry him.

She is going to write a novel, name the main character after Thom, and find a way to get it to him. Intrigued and flattered, he will read it, fall in love with her prose, write to her and ask to turn it into a movie. She will pretend to think about it for a week or so, then say, sure, but can I work on it with you? Their eyes will meet over the script, and fade to black.

It is a fail-proof plan. Except for the fact that Thom is a Hollywood star, and she is, well, not. Except for the fact that he lives in America. Except, too, for the tiny age gap. Not even twenty years! Totally overcomable.

All of the obstacles are totally overcomable. It’s all about determination.


My Review

Claire Handscombe is a new author to me so I was very excited to be invited on the Blog Tour for Unscripted.

The story begins with a love triangle. Dan is in love with Libby who is starstruck on Thom, a famous actor.  Not content with adoring him from afar Libby has a plan.  She will write a book then Thom will want it adapted for the screen and they will work together and he will fall in love with her.  Poor Dan helps her with this because he loves her and wants to make sure she is okay.

Libby is a character I would describe as flaky.  She is hopeless with money and lets her heart rule her head.  She is also totally blind to Dan’s feelings.  However, you cant help liking her and I found myself smiling many times over the course of the book. 

Thom appears to be a lovely man his marriage fell apart when an old flame of Ebba’s came back into her life so he is ‘available’ which suits Libby’s plans perfectly.

This wasn’t the fast paced book I am used to but it kept the pages turning as I was eager to find out whether she succeeds in her quest.

A very entertaining read.

Thank you to BotBS and the author for the digital copy of this book.  This is my unbiased review.


Claire Handscombe author bio

Claire Handscombe is a British writer who moved to Washington, DC in 2012, ostensibly to study for an MFA, but actually, let’s be honest, because of an obsession with The West Wing. She was recently longlisted for the Bath Novel Award, and her journalism, poetry, and essays have appeared in a wide variety of publications, including Bustle, Book Riot, Writing Magazine, and the Washington Post. She works as a bookseller at East City Bookshop on Capitol Hill and is the host of the Brit Lit Podcast, a fortnightly show of news and views from British books and publishing.
