Overview

Not exactly what you’d call a goddess of cutting-edge culture, Lindsey Miller is shocked when she’s offered the über-hip job of writing for The Pulse, a newsletter that tracks white-hot trends in everything from fashion to cosmetics to entertainment. Before long, Lindsey finds herself on a whirlwind bicoastal romp as she jet-sets between New York and Los Angeles, fumbling to uncover what’s cool today, and what will be the next big thing tomorrow.

The grit and glamour of Manhattan are electrifying – and so is Victor Ragsdale, the slick Wall Street broker who charms Lindsey with his street-smart savvy. But the warmth and sunshine of L.A. are bliss – and so is Danny Wynn, the dreamy blond surfer who sweeps her into his strong, suntanned arms.

Lindsey’s two lives are both so exciting – and both so different. But disaster strikes when her evil trend-spotting partner begins to expose Lindsey for what she really is: tragically unhip and only one dirty martini away from being found out and fired.

Reviewed by: Angie Book provided by: Publisher Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Bicoastal Babe is one humorous read. Poor Lindsay isn’t recovering from a recent breakup with the man she thought she’d marry. When he catches her stalking his house, and losing her job, Lindsay goes into a massive depression. She spends weeks without showering, ordering pizza, and lazing about her house smoking incessantly. Finally her friends have enough and decide to help Lindsay get back out there. She gets a job as a trend tracker, living in Los Angeles one week and then traveling to New York the next, in the hopes of finding out what the next biggest thing is going to be in fashion, food, etc. Lindsay spends a lot of the book moping about nearly everything. She isn’t very confident in her job and nearly loses it several times; if it weren’t for her boss, Liz, bailing her out in the beginning, I’m pretty sure she would have ended up back on her Chicago couch eating pizza out of a box. I like how Liz was able to see more in Lindsey then Jen and even Lindsey herself could see. Once Liz boosted her confidence a bit, Lindsey was able to really concentrate on her work and realize she’s really good at tracking trends. Of course she has a boyfriend in New York and one in California. Neither knows about the other; only her LA friend, Carmen, and coworker, Jen, know about the men. I did cringe when Lindsay decides which man she wants, mostly because I thought she went with who was safe to her; which surprisingly wasn’t whom anyone else would have found safe. Overall I really liked the book, however, I disliked the ending…what a cliffhanger! I sure hope that Ms. Langston has another book in the works because that’s just not a good way to end a book otherwise. WHAT HAPPENS?!

Lindsey Miller got a dream job tracking the hot trends and writing about it in “The Pulse.” The only problem is she isn’t really sure what the hot trends are or how to track them. By taking this job, she has to give up the comforts of her home in Chicago and become a Bicoastal Babe, spending a couple weeks in New York and a couple in Los Angeles. In each location she is on the “in” list to visit all the hot spots. Getting invited to the hottest clubs, cafes, and parties is a huge perk. Lindsey also has a boyfriend in each city and feels guilty about this. When her partner portrays her as un-hip during a television interview she fears her job is over and that she will have to decided whether to live in glamourous Manhatten, laid back New York, or head home to Chicago. I read this book quickly. The writing and story flowed together perfectly, keeping the story going with no lagging. Lindsey is the character I instantly loved. She is so real with flaws and all. The fact the Lindsey took her dream job with very little knowledge of what to do made me shake my head and smile, but I loved that she never gave up and eventually became the stronger of the two ladies writing “The Pulse.” The ending (I won’t give it away) left me hoping for a sequel. Never ever would I have ever thought up an ending like Cynthia Langston did, but I loved it. Everything about BiCoastal Babe was wonderful. I would highly recommend this to any of my girlfriends.

I highly recommend this book -- I laughed the entire way through. The heroine, Lindsay Miller, reminds me of myself and my friends in our younger/single days. You will not be disappointed -- a definite fun, summer read.
