Phoebe Grant is prepared for this to be the best year ever. She is looking forward to spending Christmas and New Year's Eve with her new boyfriend, Alex Spencer, and dreaming of kissing his oh-so-kissable lips for the first time. But as the holidays approach Alex is called home to England for a family emergency.

When Phoebe’s best friend, Lindsey, calls with the exciting news that she is engaged, Phoebe is happy for her, but sad that she’s going to be left behind. But Lindsey is turning out to be Bridezilla and Phoebe is having a hard time being a long-distance maid of honor.

When Alex still hasn’t returned home to California after Valentine's Day, Phoebe decides its time to take matters into her own hands. Maybe a trip to England will be in order. So she talks her new best friend, Mary Jo, into going with her—to explore all the historical places, of course. Because while she’d love to see Alex, he really isn’t the reason she’s going . . . is she?

Will Phoebe find out what is keeping her man from her? Will she finally get her kiss? Or is she doomed to watch, still unattached, when her best friend marries?

Dreaming in Technicolor is the sequel to Dreaming in Black and White. Readers will want to read the books in order because they tie into each other. There is a lot of movie trivia in the story, which leaves this non-movie watcher cold, but there are also some funny moments and the sarcasm keeps the pages turning.

Phoebe is just as realistic and loveable as in the first book, and I looked forward to catching up with her. I looked forward to her first kiss as much as she did. Pick up a copy of Dreaming in Technicolor to brighten your days this fall.
