About the book
What do mascara wands and gardening shears have in common?

Absolutely nothing! At least that’s what wannabe beauty influencer Sophie Timney thinks when her friend Polly suggests involving her brother Marcus in Sophie’s make-up tutorials. She needs more views, Marcus needs promotion for his gardening business – in Polly’s mind joining forces will help them both. Sophie isn’t so sure.

Because Marcus Bowman has a habit of getting under her skin in a way that no exfoliating face scrub ever could. But, as the views and comments on her videos begin creeping up, it becomes increasingly obvious that Sophie’s subscribers like Marcus, and what’s even worse is that Sophie might be starting to feel the same way …
Before I get to the core of the story I have to hand it to Keeling for creating a wee bit of a mystery. The kind of mystery that makes readers keep coming back to a specific character - what exactly does Mya do for a living?

Sophie is trying to carve out her own niche in the world of social media influencers, specifically in the arena of beauty, make-up and style. So far it has been an uphill battle, perhaps because the huge ocean of social media users is already filled with people who are doing it better than Sophie. Or is it just a question of attracting the attention of the right crowd of viewers at the right time?

When a friend suggests creating a better backdrop to her online tutorials and also giving the garden a new look by asking Polly's brother Marcus to lend a hand, well Sophie isn't exactly thrilled. She is even less thrilled when he ends up becoming a part of her videos and then flabbergasted when her viewers appear to like him a lot.

This is an amusing romcom, a feel good story set around relevant careers of our day and age. Social media has taken over a huge part of our lives, both in our private and public lives. There are new careers on the horizon for young people. Marketing via online presence, likes equating to popularity and hopefully eventually to sales. It's a whole new ballgame.

It's a contemporary romcom, an accidental love story with a focus on the world of social media.
