  1. I kind of got stuck on 'differing' because it conflicts with the 'best mates'.

    1. Maybe it's just me, Mary but my close friends and I tend to differ in our reactions to all sorts of things.

  3. The wording 'fortune telling' provides a thread of intrigue as to what may be found in this book, and rouses curiosity.

    '...happiness, love, flowers, danger, tears, fabulous food and cocktails...' are all hints at the variety of situations the two friends may find themselves in. I'd say a reader of this book will find much in the story to interest them, and they'll not want to put it down.

  4. I think your log line tells the reader a lot and would entice them to pick up the novel. Interestingly, I've never heard a session with a fortune teller referred to as 'a fortune telling'. We would say 'a reading' or 'a fortune teller's reading' to be more specific - but hey, I'm Oirish! :)

    Quiz question: one film log line that has stayed with me is 'Be afraid, be very afraid'. Do you know the film it's from?

    2. Marion, 'reading' is the more usual term you're right. I probably should have said 'fortune teller's reading'.

      I have heard the 'be afraid' line but can't remember what it was from.
