Book Description

Mar 2001
Sorrel and best friend Chloe's lives revolve around clubbing, pulling guys and laughing at other people's engagements.

Now Chloe has gone all dreamy about her imminent wedding leaving Sorrel feeling a little desperate about her single status.

Life couldn't get much worse, could it?

High on self-pity and low on self-esteem, Sorrel throws herself into a new career, another new diet amd late-night heart-to-hearts with her beloved terrier, Hector.

However, a phone call from the unquestionably gorgeous Jake has Sorrel thinking wedding proposal, but if their first date is anything to go by, her luck is not about to change.

And what she dosen't need is a weird ex-boyfriend who's starting to act like a stalker...

Accidents start to happen and the consequences for Sorrel are looking dangerous.

1.0 out of 5 stars samey dull city girl 17 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I thought this book looked promising, however it turned out to be confusing, predictible and utterly dull. Why change the names of some real life restaurants and not others? And how can you belive that the hero falls for Sorrel when he barely spends more than 2 minutes talking to her, most of which time she is drunk. Far better to read the exellent Pinapple Tart or the incomparable Bridget

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it! 30 Oct 2004
By Ciara
Format:Paperback
Wow! I loved this book from start to finish and I could hardly put it down! To be honest i read it three times and it didn't even begin to bore me. It was beautiful! I felt I could connect with the main character, Sorrel. I felt all that she felt especially the falling in love with Jake bit! Also being from Belfast myself I knew the places the author talked about which also helped me feel part of the book. The only problem with this book was the amount of typos!
If you are looking for an easy read, lots of laughs and a touching ending READ THIS BOOK.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love It! 19 May 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book was really the most strange book. The main character Sorrel, must be the most accident prone person that i have ever
heard about.
The beginning is interesting but doesn't really describe what she looks like. I tried hard to see whether the author left any clues. Nothing apart from the fact that she think's she's fat - doesn't most women!
Her stalker was probably the most entertaining part. The story does all sound very unbelievable, but that might appeal to people! The ending was just like a romantic novel, which is lovely but not for everyone.
A brilliant book for females who love romance, but it could be a let down!

I bought this book at a service station on my way down south. The point being to help me relax. I thought it was great. I didn't get a wink of sleep on my trip and couldn't wait to find out what happened next. It is one of those books that reminds you that life isn't quite worth giving up on as you never know whats going to be round the next corner

5.0 out of 5 stars It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry 4 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I picked up this book because of the endearing little Westie on the cover, which I later learnt was Hector. This is a fantastic book from start to finish, a rollercoaster ride of all emotions, empathising with Sorrel and her classic 'one-liner' thoughts, feeling protective of her with her disastorous ex boyfriend and willing her on with the new love interest in her life.
A classic 'girlie' book and a must read.
By the time I finished the book I felt that I knew all of the characters and that they were my mates too.
Dawn Cairns brings us a very simiar writing style to Jane Green who brought us Straight Talking and Bookends.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book was such a joy to read, very entertaining and funny with a very clever twist in the story line. Exquisitely written, captivating your imagination and allowing you to really understand and sympathise with the characters and the intersting situations they find themselves in! Looking forward to more work from this first time author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read that made me smile, laugh and cry 23 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
From the minute I picked this book up I couldn't put it down - I laughed out loud, inwardly cringed with familiar recognition at the plights of Sorrell the central character and cried through her desperation.
The book is funny, heart warming and written to engage the reader immmediately into the life of the characters. The writer manages to depict the human weaknesses in us all without being patronising or predicatable.
I highly recommend too anyone who wants an enjoyable read - and who has had to phone a friend to piece together the previous evening - this is the book for you!
