Book review: The Lonely Fajita by Abigail MAnn

The Lonely FajitaThe Lonely Fajita
 by Abigail  Mann

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I requested this book from Netgalley because I loved the title.
This is a fun, light hearted read and is genuinely funny. Elissa is in an intern position that’s losing her money, she has a terrible boyfriend and is about to be made homeless. She signs up to be a companion for the an elderly lady called Annie.

The story is about loneliness – both Elissa and Annie, with their different lifestyles, are lonely. They find in each other the impetus to move out of their respective ruts.


I was expecting a rom com and kept waiting for the romantic storyline to kick off, which impaired my enjoyment a little. There is only a mere hint of a romance subplot in it. There is plenty of comedy though and all the other stuff with the interesting friends. If you’re looking for a coming of age type story of a twenty something Londoner, you’ll enjoy this book.


I got a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. Thanks to Netgalley and to the publisher.
