Waiting On Wednesday: THE LIBERATION OF ALICE LOVE

I've read Abby McDonald's first two books (The Popularity Rules and Life Swap - click for my reviews) and really enjoyed them and so I'm obviously looking forward to her future releases! Luckily, she has two books coming out this year: first it's the US edition of her YA novel Boys, Bears and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots (the UK edition has been moved to 2011, boo) in April and then she has another chick lit book coming out in July - it's called The Liberation of Alice Love (the original title was A Good Girl's Guide to Deception, which I thought was fantastic!). The plot sounds great & quite intriguing (see below) and the cover is lovely too, yay! What more could a chick lit fan possibly ask for? :)
Will the real Alice Love please stand up?
Alice Love keeps her life (and boss, and family) running in perfect order, so when her bank card is declined, she thinks it's just a simple mistake. But it soon becomes clear that someone has emptied every penny from her bank account, spending her hard-earned savings on glamorous holidays, sexy lingerie, and a to-die-for wardrobe and leaving Alice with thousands of pounds worth of debt.
With her perfectly-organised world crumbling around her, Alice enlists the help of dashing fraud investigator Nathan, and sets about clearing her name. But as she unravels the intriguing paper trail, she makes a shocking discovery: her thief is closer to home than she imagined.
Following the clues from London to Rome and LA, Alice edges deeper into a seductive new world, where honesty might not be the best policy, rules are made to be broken, and the power of a gorgeous cocktail dress shouldn't be underestimated. Perhaps her alter-ego's reckless, extravagant lifestyle is the one Alice should have been leading all along...
But as her little white lies begin to stack up, how far will Alice go to find the truth?

This seems great! I've never heard of another book with this general plotline before, so it's pretty original.

This one sounds fantastic! Too bad we have to wait until July for it -- I'm going to add it to my wishlist now so I don't forget, haha. I just finished an ARC of Abby McDonald's Boys, Bears And A Serious Pair Of Hiking Boots last week -- really fun, cute story. Looking forward to reading more from her!
