Clearly this book polarises people into two camps; love it or hate it. I was actually searching Jenny Eclair the author in the hope that she'd written something else recently, so it clear which camp I fall in.
Camberwell Beauty is laugh out loud funny, observant, wry and refreshingly realistic. And hooray, for once, a book with an unexpected, breath taking ending. Perhaps the 'hate its' have overdosed on regular chicklit and are pining for the standard fare so here we go.
Good old Chris comes to Anna's rescue and stands by her, reducing her to grateful tears and she vows never to take him for granted again. Jo catches MRSA whilst at the hospital, loses three stone and Nigel finally falls in love with her. They renew their wedding vows, and no one is more happy for them than Anna and Chris.
Is that better?
