Review: Public Property by Mandy Baggot

Public Property (Freya Johnson, #2)From award-winning author Mandy Baggot comes the sequel to her first novel, Excess All Areas!

Freya Johnson is back and life is good!

Having sold her photography studio in the UK, she’s now living the American dream, engaged to Hollywood film star, Nicholas Kaden. Finally her past is behind her and the only way is up – as long as she’s regularly fed takeaway food!

But with a wedding to plan and a whole heap of charity work to organise, she could do without the reappearance of her childhood sweetheart, Jonny Sanders. He’s rich, he’s better looking than she remembers and he reminds her of all those times she’d rather forget.

When a flippant comment made during a hospital visit ends up as headline news, suddenly everything is in turmoil and Freya’s life is in danger!

Could her past be coming back to haunt her?
Who is sending her hate mail?
And where the hell are her ‘Wild Wednesday’ pants?

Shona's review 4 of 5 stars


I loved  meeting Freya and Nick in Excess All areas so I jumped at the chance to reunite with them and see where life had taken them.
As is typical of Baggot's work you are immediately drawn in to the story, enveloped in Freya's life so it doesn't feel like you are reading about it, but are in fact right there with her.

There seems to be this trend in sequels in which the couple have an argument and break up, spend half of the second book separate before getting back together again.. What I really enjoyed with this one is that Baggot didn't do that, Freya and Nick are stronger than they were in Excess All Areas, if anything the conflict in this book brings them closer together.

This was another fab read from Baggot, and I'm disappointed that my real life got in the way of reading this, otherwise I'm sure I would have devoured it in a day.
