Follow That Blonde Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Follow That Blonde

Lana Morton was on the trip of her dreams - a whirlwind tour of Greece, Italy, England, and more! Too bad her drop dead gorgeous cousin, Nancy Bankes, decided to come along. Well, actually Nancy wasn't too bad for all that she was incredibly beautiful. Lana had a wonderful time until they hit Rome. Rome wasn't quite what Lana expected and she hoped that that coin she threw in the Trevi fountain wouldn't really bring her back there. Things got worse when Lana and Nancy ran into Bert Garr, an old high school classmate that they nicknamed "Pig Eyes." Bert seemed to be doing quite well for himself in Rome, however, and even took them to an exhibit of artists' work. Lana couldn't believe that someone as talented as Nick Hansen was would ever consider using someone like Bert as his agent. No accounting for taste...

Before Lana knew it, she was stuck with the gorgeous Nick (who had made it very clear that he was only with her as a favor to Bert) while Bert tried to pick up where he and Nancy left off in high school. Then they missed their bus to the next city and all three ganged up on Lana to persuade her to stay in Nick's villa for a few days and rejoin their tour - which was prepaid, by the way - later. Lana actually began to enjoy herself, until she found herself embroiled in the midst of an art scam. It turns out Nick's work in tempera was relatively new. He used to do modern art pieces in France, but they didn't sell at all well so he switched techniques. However, someone was selling Nick's old paintings under a different, dead artist's name. And that someone knew that Nick would recognize his own work, which he definitely couldn't allow to happen....

This is just a very light, fun read. The characters are all a bit ludicrous and foolish in their actions, but they were good hearted and very fun to get to know. All of them kept finding themselves in absolutely impossible situations, but it was just so funny that you couldn't help but laugh at their antics. I especially enjoyed Nick trying to warm up to the prickly Lana and to persuade her that looks weren't everything. The author's descriptions of Rome were charming and her accounts of Nick driving in Italian traffic were absolutely hilarious. If you find the opportunity to read this entertaining novel, jump on it!
