Previously loved all this authors books but could not get into this one at all. Quite different to her recent books.

When I've seen that Louise Candlish is going to treat us with a second book in a year I was really thrilled. This book was actually previously published as "Prickly Heat" back in 2004 but as I have not read it then I was not going to miss the opportunity this time.

Like with "The Disappearance of Emily Marr" I had some problems to get into this book as well. The beginning was not so easy and heart - warming. We met Eleanor, a young woman who struggles to get over with being rejected by her fiance. She had this "brilliant" idea to follow him and his new girlfriend to some island in Italy and actually stalk him. This actually made me feel a little uncomfortable and I started to expect really shocking things to happen.

I have a feeling that I don't actually know Eleanor. Yes, I know how old she is, where does she work, that she has some best friends, parents and that she works in an office and she doesn't like her job. But after having finished the book I still think that I know her on the surface and don't know much about her inside, her feelings, thoughts. Nevertheless, after getting used to Eleanor's idea of stalking, I started to warm to her. At the beginning I thought, wow, poor Will, Eleanor is going to makes his holidays a hell, but reading further we get some retrospection and get to know Will as well. And my feelings started to turn around towards Eleanor. She was actually funny, intelligent, warm woman, feeling rejected and not knowing what to do with her life now. After Will.

There are also other characters in the book, living in the same hotel as Eleanor. It was really refreshing to follow their conversations at the dinners or on the beach, to observe their interaction and to see how different people they were.

I bought this as I have read and enjoyed several of her previous books. I didn't realise it was a republished version of her first book until after I bought it, but on reading it, it shows. The story idea was a good one, but it never really fulfilled it's potential. There were several other sideline stories with fellow guests in the hotel, which were also never fully developed and I spent the whole book waiting for something significant to happen. When the main dramatic event arrived, even that was a damp squib and the ending was a lame anti-climax, even if it wasn't the predictable one I was expecting by then! Could have done with rewriting rather than reworking in my opinion. If this is your first time reading this author, don't give up, and if you haven't read it yet, I suggest you read another of hers first.

I have read a few of Louise's books now, I have to say this wasn't her best one but I did enjoy it. The story was a good one but I found I was a little disappointed with the ending it left me wanting more. Louise describes the settings and surroundings brilliantly, I felt like I was there. This book was previously published as 'Prickly Heat' in 2004, but I didn't miss the opportunity to read it. Nice easy read.

I just love Louise Candlish books. They have great storylines and are so easy to read. Also she takes you to lovely places, describing the surroundings in great detail. You almost feel like you're there. I enjoyed this book very much.
