Tuesday Intros ~ From Notting Hill with Love...Actually by Ali McNamara

Every Tuesday Diane @ Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter, First Paragraph where we share the first paragraph or two of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon.  Feel free to grab the image and participate.

My Tuesday Intro pick is From Notting Hill with Love...Actually by Ali McNamara. I'm reading it on Kindle and I was fortunate to grab this when it was offered as a freebie. I enjoy British romantic comedy and Notting Hill and Love...Actually are two of my favorite movies. 

Here is the first paragraph:

"I didn't feel much like Julia Roberts as I emerged from the hot and crowded London underground. There were no paparazzi ready to photograph my every move-unless you counted the two Japanese tourists snapping away at a black London cab that was just dropping off a fare.  And neither did I resemble her that much, trundling my old blue wheelie suitcase along the pavement while I looked in awe at the Notting Hill area of London I thought I knew so well."


Click on THIS LINK, to hear an audio excerpt of the first few pages of the book and the narrator has a beautiful British accent.

What do you think? Would you keep on reading 
or move on to something else?


  1. I like British romantic comedy too. Both intros are good - audio and your first paragraph. I'm off to find this one.

  2. Yes, I'd love to read this. Lucky you that you got it free. Here's Mine

  3. 2 of my favourite movies too.
    I like the idea of combining both stories :-)

  4. Heck ya! I have this one and need to get to reading it soon!
