Welcome to Holly's Inbox; the smash-hit romantic comedy about Holly Denham - a receptionist on a mission.

Product Description:Dear Holly, isn’t it shockin. Things are finally going Holly Denham’s way: she’s in love, she’s getting the recognition she deserves at work, and her friends and family have graciously opted to avoid disaster for the moment

Holly Denham, the lead of this epistolary novel (and yes, the name of the author), is an overwhelmed receptionist at a major British bank. Some of the best exchanges are between Holly and her grandmother, who sends e-mails that just read TESTING and signs her up for annoyingly spammy Web services. Despite the limitations inherent in an e-epistolary novel, the book is populated by vibrant, endearing characters, and Denham manages to juggle a dozen story lines at once. The ending's contrived, but feel-good, which, in these gloomy times, might be enough to do the trick.

drey’s thoughts: I never did get a chance to read Bill Surie’s Holly’s Inbox, but am glad I did get my hands on the follow-up, Holly’s Inbox: Scandal in the City. One thing I want to point out–the cover of my copy is pink, not the blue-ish tone as depicted, but I can’t for the life of me find a pink cover image.

Dear Holly,

Are you sure you know what you're getting into…?

***

System alert: Inbox full of scandal, romance, and office hilarity!

Meet Holly Denham. It's her first day as a receptionist at a London investment bank and inexperienced Holly is struggling. Take a peek at her email and you'll see why: Holly's inbox is a daily source of drama. An affair with a sexy VP heats things up at the office, but when Holly's first flame (who, she thinks, left her in the lurch) gets a job at the same company, complications abound.

How's a working girl supposed to have a love life with a demanding job, crazy friends, a dysfunctional family, and gossipy colleagues? Not to mention that Holly's been keeping a secret from everyone - and the past is about to catch up with her.

Written entirely in emails, this compulsively readable UK smash hit will keep you laughing and turning the pages all the way to its surprising and deeply satisfying ending.

Repeatedly compared to Bridget Jones' Diary, hollysinbox.com became a website phenomenon, with thousands of daily visitors from all over the world. This novel tells Holly's story in full, and also includes exclusive extra material not available on the site.

As a fan of books such as Bridget Jones Diary, Meg Cabot's The Boy Next Door and Boy Meets Girl, I had already read a variety of books that use the email, or epistolary format in telling the story. While I like the playful way that this style shows the development of a relationship, there does seem to be some advantage to the author jumping in from time to time to guide the story. In the case of Holly's Inbox, all we get for the story comes directly from emails. Over half of the novel (which although is made up of short emails, is still over 300 pages) is spent developing our idea of who Holly is, as well as the characters in her life such as her best friends who work at a hotel there in London, her parents who now live in Spain along with her grandmother, and her cohort at work who although sits next to her, spends her day emailing Holly and checking in. This set up of the basic plot and characters is amusing, but left me wishing for the bulk of the story that I was sure was to come.

By the second half of the novel, a portion of the conflict has been revealed, and Holly is left to deal with what appears to be a messy social life, and a "friend" from her past who she refuses to speak to. We soon find out that this friend played a major role in her life, but not until the last moments of the book. It was during these last moments that I really got into the novel and wished I'd had more information.

I can't say that I disliked Holly's Inbox, as I had to keep reading to know what happened, but I did feel like I'd seen this technique before and like it when the author breaks out of the all email format to include some narration. For chick lit, this novel was fun to read and had me entertained. It's not hearty reading, but a fun time if you can hang in there and wait for the main action.

I have read this book several times. It is a fast read and it is easy to find stopping points as you are literally reading the email inbox of Holly. However, just like anything with emails, if you forget what was said in an earlier email you have to go find the ones you missed and go back and read it again. But overall I really enjoyed it, although at times I felt like I was reading the emails of someone that I should not be able to see. In a way that added a more realistic feel to this story because the characters came alive via this means of communication. I even have the second book and enjoyed it just as much as the first. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful look at life today from a perspective that is unique and different.

I've been wanting to read this book since it came out and I finally got around to it! I knew it would be just my thing but I was a little scared by the sheer size of it. Granted, it was in email format, (the epistolary format of the millennium perhaps?), but still, it's a purse commitment if nothing else. However, it had all the makings of a book I would love. Chick - lit, plus it's set in London. What else do I need when I want to escape for a bit? Not much else, and this certainly did the trick for me!

Holly, our heroine, is plucky indeed, which is a requirement I always ask for. She gets a job as a receptionist at a large company. I could totally relate because, a. one of my first jobs out of college was as a receptionist, and b. I currently work in the corporate sector so a lot of what she dealt with day to day had me both smiling and cringing at the same time because it is so true to life! The author did a great job making Holly very realistic!

Her companion at the firm, Trish, was probably my favorite character in the story. She was rough around the edges but that made her, for me, all the more fun to read. I loved her colloquialisms. She helped lift Holly's spirits when the going got tough and was great for the much needed comic relief, as were the majority of Holly's friends and family who were a rag-tag bunch who made you smile throughout.

The drama of the story centered around Holly's love life and how it would all turn out and also trying to figure out what all happened in her past. Being that you only got snippets at a time and you were set down in a story at a certain time frame in her life you had to piece it all together. However, I found this format remarkably easy to follow and it made me want to keep turning the page for more. Unlike many stories I've been reading where chapters keep going and going, this was fast paced. Also, even though it was in email, I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything or that it was too cheesy. However, if every book was written like this it would drive me nuts, but this author did it first so cheers to that. I will definitely be reading the sequel 'Scandal in the City' and soon!

Don't read this paragraph unless you really want to know who the author is because I was totally disappointed by the news! - Ok now I knew that Holly Denham was a pseudonym for the author since it was a 'fiction' book written by the author of the same name as the character but I was a little disappointed to find out that the author was a man by the name of Bill Hutton Surie. Not because I don't think a man shouldn't write chick lit but does he, or the publishing house think women won't buy it if a man wrote it? I kind of think it's false advertising. Whatever, I still loved it. I'll get over it!

I loved this book! It is light and hilarious! It doesn't take long to figure out that Holly is in over her head at her new job as a receptionist at a huge corporate bank. She is like a fish out of water! Reading her emails to her friends and family and fellow employees made me feel like a bit of a spy but it was so fun! Holly's sarcastic sense of humor is very similar to mine. I caught myself laughing hysterically out loud many times. The shocking part of the whole book is finding out that Holly Denham is actually a pen name for Bill Surie. He is not only the author of the book but the owner of a placement service for receptionists and secretaries in London. I wonder if any of these emails are based on true emails that he has come across in his work? Although this format is a bit different than most books, I found it easy to read and follow along. I highly recommend this book! I liked it so much that I am starting to read the sequel immediately! Trust me..you will enjoy Holly! She is an interesting character!

Required book for a college course but really good read. I read it as a communications major and would really recommend it to anyone. Easy read but interesting as well!
