I started to worry when i got to about 30% of the way through the book (kindle edition), to find that the main character had already slept with the main guy, and i then thought, where else can this go!? Well, im now on 70%, and it turns out, not much can go on!
I'm truly disappointed with this book! I'm a Katie Fforde fan, and athough i've not liked ALL the books (living dangrously was another annoying one for me), i still had hoped for more! The main character is very, very weak. I know that there are some people that allow themselves to be a push over, but come on!
She's staying at a huge mansion type place, and she has ended up making dinner or tea for the judges, serving them, putting her position as a contestant in jeapordy so she can make a wedding cake for people she doesnt even know, waiting as a servant on the in laws of the house owner, spoken down to....you name it! There is even a bit in the book where after she 's gone above and beyond for these people, she's asked if she can stay at the house during the time she is meant to be finding recipes for the finale of the competition.
The spoilt brat villain , Cher, could not get away with the stuff she is doing. It would be highly suspicious and she would be disqualified. No one is doing anything about anything! In order to be a nice person, it doesn't mean to be walked over in this way!
I'm starting to not want to even continue. It's just been pages and pages of her deciding if she likes Gideon or not....there is no spark between them. He cannot have fallen in love with her within 2days!!
There are so many annoying and obnoxious parts to this book, im thinking this is close to being the worst one i've read (of katie's).
This being said, im giving it 3 stars, because i do like a Katie Fforde book, and i'm also pregnant and it could be im getting angrier than i usually would in regards to a book!!
