25 Down, 25 to Go: Bicoastal Babe

*Disclosure–I received a copy of this book from Debutante Media as part of the Business2Blogger network.  I was not compensated for this review – the review is my honest opinion of the book.*

Bicoastal Babe (by Cynthia Langston) centers on Lindsey Miller, a single, unemployed twenty-something who lands a job writing a trend-tracking newsletter that covers everything from fashion to food to cosmetics. Lindsey flies between New York and LA and spends her days (and nights) in clubs, restaurants, and navigating life.  She ends up juggling two guys – one on each coast – who are complete opposites.

This is a light read – perfect for a late-Summer literary distraction.  The CW has picked up the story and is making it into a TV show called “Trending” to be produced by Katherine Heigl.

The story was certainly a deviation from my usual reads.  It reminded me of the premise of the ABC show “Don’t Trust the B in Apt 23” – the good friend/bad friend, doe-eyed Midwesterner moves to the big city, etc.  So I’d be curious to see how the CW networks keeps Trending fresh and different.

Side note – author Cynthia Langston is originally from Appleton, Wisconsin.  Props to a local Wisconsin girl!

What has been a light Summer book you’ve read?

  1. Thanks for the review, Nicole! I’m so glad you enjoyed the book. I have a new one out called “The Very First Bite” that is very much about its main character’s relationship with food – I think you’d enjoy it. Hope you’re gearing up for the beautiful Wisconsin fall, and of course, Packer season. Go Pack! 🙂
