I bought this book because it had one of the highest customer review ratings, and I'm sooo disapointed.

My first thoughts were that there were too many characters, and for the first (pretty much) half of the book they (the men mostly) have the same storyline, so it was confusing and pointless.
I was also frequently annoyed at being told what to think, there is a lot of 'he did... (something bad, or didn't notice something)' well he is a man after all... Noooo... not all men are like that, stop telling me he did it because he was male!!

I agree with the other 1 star rater about the wine references.

and at first all the 'wha3/4' really confused me... I was quite a way through the book before it stopped annoying me so much.

And well... I couldn't be bothered to read the end of the book because they were all happy and it was telling me a lot of stuff I didn't really care about. (infact I don't think I really cared about any of the characters, there was just so many of them and the least tedious one was Katie (the nanny).

and I think I must have skipped over the twist?

Anyway, I thought it was rubbish...

I wasn't going to write this review, but think there needs to be a bit of balance with all the gushing 5 stars out there. I love chick lit, I love light, flimsy storylines, I can suspend a huge amount of disbelief, I like a good love story, especially a lesbian one, I am hugely forgiving about grammar and the lack of a tight narrative. Plus I was interested in this book because it is set in a part of London I know, with a set of characters I vaguely know and tend to dislike and wouldn't mind reading about their undoing/ personal journeys. So I honestly came to this open-minded. But this is a first novel (and well done to Jane Reynolds for the guts to do it, I certainly haven't), but it reads like a self-published first novel. The character depiction is horribly clumsy. For example, at first the idea of emphasising the characters' wealth/ class by the kind of wine they like is quite clever. But to continue throughout the book to say whether it's a NZ Sauvignon Blanc they are enjoying or one of so-and-so's best Chablis.... it's like being bludgeoned around the head with said bottle of wine. Yes, we get it, they are rich, they drink non-stop, they know good wine from bad, they have champagne on a Friday night where we might crack open some Pinot Grigio.... Enough! And then for both plot and character development (and perhaps word count...) the author finds it necessary to show each feeling or decision first through the character's own thoughts, then through a conversation with someone else, then through the children's point of view, then through another conversation... it's really heavy-handed and insulting and makes an interesting development really boring.Read more ›

I enjoyed the detailed, chatty style of the book. Unfortunately the text is littered with a weird typographical error, where words, or parts of words are missing and replaced with a 3/4 fraction symbol. This doesn't happen in the sample, or in the earlier parts of the book, but becomes a nuisance later on. There are relatively few other typos, however. I feel that the way that everything suddenly works out in the last chapter is totally unrealistic, given what has gone before but then this is just fun fiction. I agree with other reviewers that the use of "aye" instead of "eh" is odd and also that there are far too many uses of unnecessary hyphens and parenthesis but this is a minor niggle. Overall I found this to be an enjoyable read, but try the sample to get a taste for yourself!

I bought this book and started reading it and was unable to put it down....yes it was that good. Firstly, it was a really long read which I loved. How often are the stories so short that the plot is rushed along and the book finished before you know. The story line had me reading at times about a hundred miles an hour as I just couldn't wait to see how it was all going to pan out. I'm not going to elaborate on the plot as I'm sure that you will have read the synopsis and I wouldn't want to give anything away. I think this is money well spent at an extremely good price. Give it a go, you wont regret it. I will certainly be looking out for more books by Ms Reynolds.

I found it hard to put this book down. Great characters, fine food, brilliant drama, oh and very sexy! Finally a novel that covers diverse relationships, you've got relationships between husband and wife and the ever increasing situation where a woman falls for another woman. Great stuff. Buy it you won't be disappointed.

A story that uncovers hidden passions and supressed secrets that have been preventing a group of friends from discovering the truth about themselves and each other. Wealthy lives intertwine in a tale of passion, misunderstanding and love that embraces and explores the complexities of modern heterosexual and homosexual relationships. Highly recommended.

I am one of those that chooses a book based on the cover and narration. I kept reading hoping that it will pick up pace which amounted to the last couple of chapters. Being that it is a first novel. I hope her next books have the plot almost from the begining. Overall if you love to read this is one that you can put down and pick up a couple a days later and not feel you have missed much
