New Synopsis Big Sexy Love

Olive Brewster is a scaredy cat. She doesn’t do new or risky. She’s happy enough with her job at the local market, it’s cool that she has no boyfriend to fret over, she even likes that she still lives in her childhood home. No drama, no fuss, no problems. Everything is fine. Super duper fine.

Except … Olive’s best friend in the world​, Birdie, is dying. Birdie has one final wish. She wants to track down her first love, Chuck, and because she’s stuck in the hospital she needs Olive’s help to do it. But there’s a teeny problem: Chuck is somewhere in New York and Olive has never even left her home town, let alone roamed the crazy streets of Manhattan.

As if the big city isn’t scary enough, Olive has to contend with Seth, a cocky comedy TV writer who thinks she’s a joke; Anders, a bored socialite who’s taken a shine to her; and the fact that no matter how hard she tries to track down Chuck, he doesn’t seem to want to be found.

Can Olive learn to overcome her fears, abandon her old safe routine and fulfil her best friend’s last wish? It’s going to take extra bravery, one badass attitude and a whole lot of Big Sexy Love to make this happen …


Big Sexy Love is the story of Olive, a twenty-something, working as a fishmonger and living with her brother and his girlfriend in their old family home. Olive and her brother ended up alone after their mother had an affair with a French man, and therefore went to France, their Dad flees to Scotland shortly after.

Olive loves her routine and gets easily irritated when something is not going after plan. That`s why she is still working as a fishmonger, lives with her brother and has never had a relationship. Her best-friend Birdie is the opposite of Olive: always chasing the next adventure, having affairs and looking for her Big Sexy Love – a real live-wire. Sadly, Birdie is dying.

Her condition is the reason she asks Olive to hunt down Chuck, her first love back in New York, to give him a letter with Birdie’s thoughts about their relationship. Olive is torn between her beloved routine and Birdie’s “last wish”, but nevertheless ends up on a plane to New York, not yet aware of the adventures she is going to have in the Big Apple. As it is said “In New York, anything can happen.”

I won’t hold back here: I love this book! I’ve already read Kirsty’s last books and am very into them, but I honestly believe, this is her best.

From the first word I was hooked and I easily warmed to Olive who is such a likeable character, it is a shame she is only fiction. It was so entertaining to watch her grow and get to know the hidden sides of her nature.

The plot is elaborate and I found myself having great difficulties laying the book aside. Additionally, it is funny, and I had great laughs. At the same time the story, especially the friendship between Olive and Birdie, is very touching and I shed a few tears.

I am a huge fan of romantic comedies, so-called “Chick-Lit”, and Big Sexy Love made its way into my Top 10 in no time. If you are a fan of Lindsey Kelk, Mhairi McFarlane, and Rosie Blake you just have to read Big Sexy Love from Kirsty Greenwood! You won’t be disappointed, I give you my word.
