    1. I am a BIG BIG fan of Fiona’s novels, I own and have enjoyed every single book of hers so far, and so I was really excited to read The Doris Day Vintage Film Club!Claire Bixby grew up watching Doris Day films at her grandmother’s house and yearned to live in a world like the one on the screen – sunny, colourful and where happy endings with chiselled leading men were guaranteed. But recently Claire’s opportunities for a little ‘pillow talk’ have been thin on the ground. Until she meet [...]

    2. This is a book that was an absolute joy to read. Claire Bixby is President of the Doris Day Vintage Film Club and it is safe to say that Doris is her heroine. If she needs to make a decision, many a time she will ask herself “What would Doris do?” When she was small she always wanted to live in the movies – not to be in them, but to LIVE in them in that “technicolour Hollywood small town wholesome American family life way”. Little does she know it, but with the arrival of her new downs [...]

    4. Claire owns a travel agent specialising in romantic getaways. Ironic, as Claire has been avoiding romance since the breakup of her marriage. Doug is a frequent client, although his holidays are planned with his mother in mind. Despite his frequent attempts to woo Claire, she doesn't feel attracted to him and turns down his offers, until he asks her to attend a party at a swish hotel that Claire knows would provide great contacts for her business. Warning Doug that it isn't a date, she accompanie [...]

    5. This was a treasure of a find through Net Galley.Claire runs the local Doris Day club after her nan passed away. She loves the bygone era where everything was romantic and classy. Every month they play a different dvd. In the summer they meet every week and you get to meet the other members and find out a lot more about them.She's also living in her nan's flat and has trouble with the downstairs neighbour. It starts with her falling over his bike in the hallway which doesn't endear him to her. H [...]

    6. I have to admit that I chose this book for both the amazing cover and book title alone and had no idea as to what I was letting myself in for. Do you remember that movie 'What Women Want?' The Doris Day vintage film club is like that, but without the magic tricks. Ms Harper is very talented at creating believable, three dimensional characters, often the most difficult achievement for a writer. Claire is a very modern woman on the face of it, but her life is built on poor relationships and faulty [...]

    7. Fiona Harper's publisher needs to make Fiona Harper a known author in the U.S.! This was my first Fiona Harper read. It is will not be my last. Fiona writes with a twinkle in her eye. Darling premise. The Doris Day Vintage Fan Club is delightful. I want to belong to this club so I can be friends with these fun women. Loved Claire, Maggs, and of course Nic and Doug. Loved the dialogue. Loved the pacing. Loved the lack of vulgar language. Also loved the bits and pieces of British turns-of-phrases. [...]

    8. Sparkling read which proved unputdownable. If you like old films, particularly those with Doris Day, you will love this book. The perfect book to brighten up a day.

    9. A cute and quick romantic read! Perfect for fans of romantic comedies and of course, Doris Day.

    10. Sparkling, witty and absolutely delightful, The Doris Day Vintage Film Club is the sensational new novel from Fiona Harper!Claire Bixby might be the President of The Doris Day Vintage Film Club, but romance is strictly off the agenda for the ambitious travel agent. With a fledgling business to get off the ground and a broken heart to get over, Claire has got enough on her plate and she certainly does not need a man in her life to complicate things even further! She is perfectly happy getting her [...]

    11. Review: aww I loved every moment of this book-what a sweet funny, cosy read! This book is not taxing in any way, it can be picked up and put down again at will but short chapters and an easy reading style will allow you to just carry on reading on and on once you have started! I really liked Claire as a character. She is a romantic but she is still a strong female and happy enough to be on her own and make her life good all by herself. She has a fabulous groups of friends all of whom are strong [...]

    12. Claire Bixby is president of the Vintage Doris Day Film Club, they meet once a month to watch and discuss the films starring Doris Day, and to discuss her life. They decide to hold a Doris Day "festival" and meet more frequently for the summer months, watching 12 films in 12 weeks. Claire is a travel agent, specialising in Romantic escapes, and the travel agency is situated near to the Hopes and Dreams proposal agency (that was featured in Fiona Harper's previous book The Little Shop of Hopes an [...]

    13. The Doris Day Vintage Film Club is a mixture of a comedy of errors, strong female friendships, solace in companionship and the accidental collision of two people, who are meant to be together.The story features an amusing twist much like a Shakespearean comedy of errors. It is actually done in a very realistic way, and I can certainly see something like that happening in a real life setting.It is more than ironic that Claire finds herself in a ‘Pillow Talk’ situation, echoing a Doris Day cla [...]

    14. Firstly thanks to Cara at Harlequin for sending me a copy of this to review and for inviting me to take part in this blog tour. This is the first book of Fiona's that I've read, but the cover completely drew me in its so pretty and perfect for spring!This story is all about main character Claire. Claire is a Doris Day fan and has been successfully running her late grandmothers fan club from the upper room of her local pub. Life has dealt her a pretty crappy hand and recently the only guys she's [...]

    15. Originally posted on Paris Baker's Book Nook.I’m a total lover of all things vintage, and I love the old Doris classics, so the title really caught my attention. The blurb intrigued me, I love the cute, simplistic cover, and I really enjoyed The Little Shop of Hopes and Dreams, which is the only Fiona Gibson book I’d read previously. All in all, there wasn’t a thing about the book I didn’t like at first sight, and I’m pleased to say the story did not disappoint!Claire is living in her [...]

    16. Rating: 4.5/5Claire Bixby’s parents had a volatile relationship and after they split she never saw her Dad again, he disappeared from her life. She married and found out her husband was manipulative and undermining her self-belief, so he’s now her ex-husband. She actually grew up watching Doris Day films with her grandmother in whose flat she now lives; she’s such a fan she is now president of the local Doris Day appreciation club. Downstairs lives Dominic aka Nic though he’s away most o [...]

    17. I love reading books that lead to other books or films. Trouble is I then get sidetracked and have even more things I want to read and see.This is the case with the latest book from Fiona Harper out on 23 April 2015. I never really knew that much about Doris Day and so this book fed me a few interesting nuggets and now I want to know more!This is such a feel good book - a real curl up and indulge book. It's girly, delightful and quirky.There are many references to the plot becoming like the Dori [...]

    18. Having read Little Shop of Hopes and Dreams I was interested in reading this offering from Fiona Harper. Gladly I wasn't disappointed. The story follows Travel Agent Claire Bixby, I admit I felt an affinity due to the name, who plans romantic trips for her clients and works close to the Little Shop of Hopes and Dreams from the previous novel. Secondary characters also cross over in to this novel, such as Peggy who fills the same role in this novel as the first. She's the type of friend everyone [...]

    19. THEME: RomanceMAIN CHARACTERS: Claire Bixby, Dominic Arden (Nic), Peggy, Maggs, Doug Martin, Katie, GraceLEVANCE: Recently published bookMMARY:Claire Bixby, a young woman, is the president of the Doris Day film club. She inherited her granny's flat, where she lives on the top floor while a young, handsome man who does freelance photo shoots lives on the ground floor. He travels most of the time for work. When he returns, he still thinks her granny lives there. Claire takes him as an irresponsibl [...]

    20. A book as charming as a Doris Day movie. A likeable circle of friends & a delightful leading man. An easy, bright and breezy read.

    21. What a lovely little book. the two main characters Claire and Nic are both engaging and funny. It's nice to read a book which just whisks you away into another world. The supporting cast of Peggy, Maggs and the other members of the Doris Day film club make the story very enjoyable.

    22. pagetostagereviews/201After Make My Wish Come True and The Little Shop of Hopes and Dreams this is the first non-festively themed title by the hand of Fiona Harper I have read, much more suited to the sweltering hot summer (or at least rain-free days, fingers crossed) coming up!The book follows Claire Bixby, who works as a travel agent specialising in romantic destinations, which is ironic considering the fact that she's having no luck on the romantic front herself! Still, she's happy with her j [...]

    23. *Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*Claire is the head of the Doris Day film club, she is a huge fan and dreamed of luving in Hollywood as a luttle girl. Her grandma loved Doris Day and now Claire has kind of taken over everything, also her appartment. She is a travel agent and she us really passionate about rimantic destinations. Ever since she split up with her ex-husband Philip though, men seem to play asecondary role in her life. I like how driven, c [...]

    24. Before I start this review I need to thank Cara Frances for sending me a review copy of The Doris Day Vintage Club.I absolutely love that feeling, you know the one; the one that happens when you start reading a book and it physically pains you to put it down. This is exactly the feeling I got when I started reading The Doris Day Vintage Film Club. Initially, it was the title that made me want to read the book. I grew up watching Doris Day movies and absolutely loved the sense of class and style [...]

    25. Thanks to her grandmother, Claire Bixby grew up watching Doris Day films and fell in love with the world on the screen – the sunny, colourful world where happy endings always happen. But Claire’s been lacking any romance in her life for quite a while. That is until Nic comes into her travel agency looking to book the perfect holiday. Pity it’s for two! But as Nic and Claire get closer and the sparks start to fly, Claire begins to question everything Doris taught her about romance.Claire’ [...]

    26. read on kindle for 99pTHE DORIS DAY VINTAGE FILM CLUB by Fiona Harper was an excellent read, the kind of book (if it was a hardcopy) you'd keep in the bottom of your wardrobe or the back of your bookshelf or even top of the freezer. Or dare I say even stuffed at the back of the magc drawer in the kitchen where it gets covered in chocolate. Why? Like a kid's favourite toy or that last Rolo, it offers you comfort and familiarity.Claire is an independent woman in her thirties, flawed by her somewha [...]

    27. This was really cute. I feel like I should have enjoyed it less than I did, because it really is pretty brainless and contrived, but I kinda love brainless and contrived romances sometimes, so this was right up my alley. In fact, I would have given this a higher rating if only the ending had been more of a pay off and hadn't felt so rushed.There was maybe one too many Doris Day references (the author is clearly a fan and wanted to squeeze as many facts about Doris' bio as possible into the story [...]
