Frustrated by a long string of empty relationships, Ellie makes a promise not to date for six months. The same day, she is rescued by the handsome but enigmatic Nathaniel.
Thinking it's unlikely she'll ever see him again, Ellie unburdens herself to him and then they part.

But what about her promise?
Ellie has another pressing problem - no job. Frustrated, she gives in to an impulse which could jeopardise any hope of her having a relationship with Nathaniel.
Will he be able to forgive her? And when will Ellie learn to 'let go and let God'?

fantastic
5 stars By Marija, May 05 2018
Move over Becky Wade and Melissa Tagg - I have a new favourite Christian romance author, and she's an Aussie!
I love, love, loved this book: it was funny, sweet, inspiring and very hard to put down! And I enjoyed reading about characters and a setting that was Australian - even just little things, like the endless cuppas the characters seem to always be drinking!
And any book that includes humorous references to Jane Austen deserves an extra star in my book:) I will definately be reading this again, and reading other books by Andrea Grigg - I hope there will be more soon!

An enjoyable read
4 stars By Sally Poyzer, May 08 2017
4.5 stars. 

Again, another great story from Andrea. I love her style of writing...it draws me in straight away and holds me until I finish (in this case, in less than 2 days!). If you enjoy Christian contemporary romance, Andrea's books are a must!

A too pretty girl and a perplexing man
4 stars By R J Rodda, Dec 05 2016
Ellie is a charming Christian girl who is too pretty. Because of her beautiful appearance everyone treats her differently - girls often dislike her on sight, guys hit on her. She decides to not date for six months and focus on God instead, a plan that is severely tested when handsome Nathaniel enters her life. He inexplicably doesn't seem to like her! He won't even be politely friendly after he rescues her. Ellie finds him utterly puzzling and watching their romance develop (why is he so distant?) is a delight.

This is an engaging well-written contemporary romance with moments of fun and likeable characters. 

Thank you to Netgalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

A great read!
4 stars By Anusha, Dec 18 2014
'Too Pretty' by Andrea Grigg was a delightful read from start to finish. The story flowed beautifully and it was hard to put it down once I got started. The book explores an unusual theme - what would it be like to be too pretty? Would that cause more problems than the benefits it brings? The main character Ellie Paxton is a very lovable and realistic young lady. Her friend Nathaniel The Christian themes in the book came through clearly. Definitely recommend 'Too Pretty' as a great read with some great insights too.
