    1. The funniest book in his series yet! It is a comedy of errors to the extreme you must read in one sitting!Although this is the 4th book in the LA Lights Series, it can be read as a stand-alone. I loved this book. It was the most hilarious of all so far. Poor Holly Oakwood. Losing her boyfriend to her best friend was so crushing that when she was offered a great job in Los Angeles with the New Zealand Consulate she took it hoping distance will help her broken heart and low self-confidence. The fi [...]

    2. This was the first book written by Di Jones from which the series was developed. Transplanting Holly Oakwood is a transitional fourth book introducing new characters and situations; Tessa and the cast of characters from the Dog Walking books appear in this story and become friends with Holly. This story is an adventure, with Holly immigrating from the UK to Los Angeles following an ugly breakup with her long-time boyfriend. Holly’s job provides tensions with a manipulative supervisor and an at [...]

    3. Fantastic read. Di's books are exciting, fun and a joy to read, and you never know what is around the corner. I am always excited to see her new releases. I love reading her books as some of her characters are from other books and it is good to see them pop up again and develop.Well done Di!

    4. What a fun and uplifting story. From beginning to end ,I was a Holly fan. The characters in this book worked. The strong bonds of friendship were evident and gave me reason to smile. A great read.

    5. ExcellentA diverse cast of interesting characters whose varied threads weave together for a fun story. While you can begin to see how it all comes together about halfway through, watching it happen will hold your interest to the end.

    6. What's a girl to do when she loses her boyfriend, best friend and job?For Holly Oakwood, finding her boyfriend in bed with her best friend and losing her job has turned her life upside down. So she picks up the pieces of her shattered heart and leaves London for Los Angeles to start her life anew. Holly lands a great job at a Consulate, but living across the pond doesn't go as easy as she thought it would. With a bitchy boss named Brittany, homesick, struggling with loneliness and trying to fit [...]

    7. Fun storyEver though this branches off from the characters we've gotten to know we meet new ones to mix in with the originals.

    8. The story follows Holly Oakwood, who leaves London for Los Angeles after catching her boyfriend in bed with her best friend and losing her job shortly after. I really think the story had a lot of potential, which is why I gave it two stars instead of one. Holly was very likeable as a character, but I didn't feel that she was given any depth or history into who she was. Same goes for the rest of the characters, there's little development for any of them, even though the narrative bounced between [...]

    9. Di Jones is now on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Transplanting Holly Oakwood. When Holly finds her boyfriend in bed with her best friend, her world comes crashing down. Not sure where to turn or who to trust, she flees from London to Los Angeles to work for a great job – a Consulate – and tries to forget the betrayal. But life in LA proves no easier than what she left behind. Her boss Brittany is a snob, her body type is nowhere near the norm, and she struggles with homesickness as loneliness [...]

    10. This story provided an opportunity to see the US through an outsider's eyes. I'll admit that the thought of "a market as sophisticated as the States" seems a little ludicrous to me, but it's interesting to hear it from the story's various expats who live in LA.Holly is a typical Bridget Jones style disaster-prone protagonist; she ends up in a real mess at work (and with the fellow that she's got feelings for) through no real fault of her own. I spent the second half of the book irritated with he [...]

    11. Holly Oakwood is a likable everywoman: a bit awkward, a bit average, and a bit overweight, but with a good heart. The book has engaging characters and the author makes you care about them. My issue with the book is that there were at least four times where I had to reread a section because the narrator was unclear or that I could not tell the time when something occurred. Was a particular anecdote in the past or present?. Still, I cheer for the good characters and boo for the villains of the boo [...]

    12. Transplanting Holly Oakwood was the perfect book for my recent mid-Winter holiday in the sun. The story was light, and characters captivating! Holly was charming, and Brittany was a great 'baddie'. Looking forward to Di's next novel!

    13. I enjoyed this storyThe author has kept me in suspense through the entire story. Ms. Jones has done an outstanding job of keeping her characters wrapped in humor, romance, and of course there's also the suspense. Great writing.

    14. I thought this book was good. I felt so sorry for Holly she had the worse luck. It was one bad thing after another. But everything comes out good in the end. I recommend this book if you want a quick read.

    15. If you are looking for a book that is unpredictable with major plot twists and turns then look elsewhere. This is just a cute, quick read, love story. It's pretty predictable but the characters are easy to like and the language is mostly clean.

    16. Annoying, predictable, subpar chicklit. Wanted to punch most of the (undeveloped, annoying) characters in the face! The perils of free kindle books

    17. Slightly predictable, but still fun to read. I have to admit I really loved the bitchy character--she was so stereotypically awful it was a hoot!

    18. Throughly enjoyed I throughly enjoyed reconnecting with Tessa, Charlie and the rest of the group. Loved reading about Holly and her adventures.
