Chicklit-time. I don't mind a bit of light entertainment in between more serious stuff.
The book's heroine, Dr. Jennifer Niederhauser, is a young zoologist who buries herself into her work after a failed relationship with a fellow student zoologist, Timothy, who cheats on her. At a friends hen party, she has a slightly annoying encounter with an Ape-strippogram. And when she takes on a new job at a ape sanctuary, her colleague is - the very strippogram called Guy, who is of course a very nice bloke. Then her old sanctuary is in financial dire straits, and when they accept a TV fly-on-the-wall in the sanctuary, Jennifers old flame Timothy turns up as the TV-presenter. It's a 'Which one will she choose?' story. A lot of facts on ape conservation, plenty of research has gone into the book. The characters are a bit 'OTT' and the end is predictable, but hey...
