She has been reading There She Goes by Lynne Shelby

There She Goes is the second in Lynne Shelby’s series of novels set in the world of the theatre, but it is not a sequel, and you can easily read them independently of each other. Told mainly from Julie’s point of view, with occasional glimpses of Zac’s thoughts, we learn what everyday life is like for struggling actors trying to break into musical theatre, with the holy grail being a part in a show directed by Joe Garcia.

I’m not a fan of any kind of theatre, but I was drawn into the world Lynne has created here as it seems thoroughly convincing. The story is well written and the characters are likeable and believable with brief appearances of some from the previous book – The One That I Want; my particular favourite is Nadia – no spoilers here, so I’m not going to tell you why!

I enjoyed reading There She Goes but felt it would have benefited from slightly more dramatic tension; none of the obstacles in the way of Julie and Zac’s relationship seemed that serious, and they were easily overcome. In some ways, this story is more about friendship than romance, as the young actors all support each other in their quest for recognition.

Book description

When aspiring actress Julie Farrell meets actor Zac Diaz, she is instantly attracted to him, but he shows no interest in her. Julie, who has yet to land her first professional acting role, can t help wishing that her life was more like a musical, and that she could meet a handsome man who d sweep her into his arms and tap-dance her along the street…

After early success on the stage, Zac has spent the last three years in Hollywood, but has failed to forge a film career. Now back in London, he is determined to re-establish himself as a theatre actor. Focused solely on his work, he has no time for distractions, and certainly no intention of getting entangled in a committed relationship…

Auditioning for a new West End show, Julie and Zac act out a love scene, but will they ever share more than a stage kiss?
