Book Description

As the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, Cassandra Cherry’s life takes a turn for the worse when she stumbles upon husband Stevie lying naked, except for his socks, on a coat-strewn bed with a 45-year-old divorcee called Cynthia.

Suddenly single, Cass throws herself into the business of getting over Stevie with gusto. Her main problems now are making her nine-year-old twins happy, juggling a new social life with a return to work and avoiding being arrested by an infuriating policeman who always seems to turn up at the most inopportune moments.

Then, just when Cass is least prepared, and much to Stevie’s chagrin, she crashes head over heels in love with the last person she’d ever expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny 28 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brilliant read - funny right from the start. Usually read in bed at night and my husband would ask what I was laughing at - told him he wouldn't understand it was girl-talk. A must read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably Funny! 2 Mar. 2013
By Laura C
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this book until about three quarters of the way through when it became so incredibly unbelievable it was irritating.

WARNING: serious spoiler alert!
To say our heroine, Cass, is a bit scatty is an understatement, but in the space of exactly one year she has told her cheating husband where to go and divorced him, then dated a few disasters before falling in love with a hunky copper who just happens to be on the scene whenever a police presence is required. She did wonder herself if he was the only policeman in the whole of Kent! They both sell their houses extremely quickly to buy a gorgeous six bedroom mansion in a stunning location, where they live like the Waltons with the four kids they have between them. Money is no problem either and seems to come from a bottomless pit as they live a celebrity lifestyle. Then Cass's period is late, she starts to put on weight, feel tired all the time and crave strange foods. Now most women on a sex marathon with a new man might rush to buy a pregnancy test at the first of these symptoms, but not scatty Cass. No, we have to go through pages and pages of her not having a clue, despite already having had twins, mainly because her equally scatty friend keeps trying to convince her she's going through the menopause - at 40!!

I did enjoy the majority of the book, it has some marvellously funny one-liners that I wish I could remember to use at some point, and it would definitely make a wonderful sit-com for the telly. I just won't be rushing to read the sequel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother 6 Jun. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was after a light read for a lunchtime and came across this.

Started off ok, but the further into it I got, the less and less impressed I became.

I can't relate to the character; Cassandra is wholly unrealistic, a single mother spending money on everything, living the high life and moving on so quickly. It's just not the world we live in.

Not to mention the number of times she and her children used adjectives like 'terribly' and said things like 'gosh'. Made my skin crawl somewhat.

On a more serious note, I was seriously annoyed by *spoiler alert* the part about her neighbor and the abortion. The way the character viewed the situation was ridiculous; we're not in the 50's anymore and making a decision like that isn't that black or white- I dislike it being presented as a decision between right and wrong. Her decision to pull out of it at the last moment also annoyed me; it's the same as in soaps, it's always presented as a bad choice, recognised at the 11th hour. It's unrealistic and unhelpful to the modern women to be presented with such an ignorant view of a big issue- even in fiction.

The character is boring, her children are unrealistic (who uses words like 'contemporary' at age 10?!) and surely no one is this wet and middle-class all the time?

4.0 out of 5 stars Just funny ! 26 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very funny book but I did feel it moved too fast ! In the space of a year she'd divorced her hubby , got a new job ( just like that ! ) had a new kitchen ( I'm a kitchen designer and believe me it doesn't happen that quickly in real life !) , two holidays and had several fumbles with gorgeous men before landing mr right , marrying him and falling pregnant . Phew ! Money was never an issue either as conveniently she had a small income from an inheritance . A very lucky heroine all round I feel . I enjoyed it enough to immediately buy the sequel though ..... :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight, mostly entertaining 16 Feb. 2013
By Seagull
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book doesn't claim to be anything more than lightweight fun, and for the most part it delivers very well. However, my initial hopes that the author would continue to avoid the besetting sin of so much chic-lit (i.e. a terminally stupid heroine)were dashed in the last quarter of the book. It's a shame, because I'd rather enjoyed it up to that point. But why DO so many authors think it a good idea to allow their characters to deliberately abandon common sense? I don't find such heroines at all 'lovably scatty'; I just find them hugely irritating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read! 3 Feb. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Looking for a new read, I came across Stockings and Cellulite. I asked for a sample for my Kindle and within minutes bought the book! I loved the way Debbie described her characters and was hooked after the first page. It's a great read and I couldn't put it down (even sneaking off half way through a favourite telly programme to read a couple more pages!)
Needless to say, once finished I then bought Debbie's second book, Flings and Arrows. Another brilliant read which I recommend to my fellow readers and eagerly awaiting further novels!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Entertaining 15 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love the characters in this book. The author has very cleverly brought them to life and made this a fun and entertaining read together with the more serious issue of a wife coping with her unfaithful husband. So many really well-written scenes have captured my imagination. I especially love the heroine, Cass, and wanted to hug her on many occasions; the sign of great characterisation. Highly recommend - it takes a great book to keep me hooked, and this one certainly delivered.
