Dull and predictable this book is another story of a wife being replaced by younger new improved version of herself. This book is uncannily like the plot of Cathy Kelly's bestseller "Woman to Woman" only five years too late! I realy don't think woman should be subjected to the depressing ramblings of yet another marital breakup and an unrealistic cateripillar turns into social butterfly yarn. This book is one long tired cliche and after a long hard day at work I can think of better books to read.Save your cash, this book is far too depressing!

This gem of a novel run riot around Ireland as the heroine Anna Allstone searches for the perfect man to drag along to her 12 year school reunion which is being held by Victoria the school bully. But it seems as though Anna is destinted to meet every Mister Wrong along the way. After we meet the permanetly broke "Rich" and baby faced Steve not to mention the not so funny Jake you begin to think Anna will end up at the reunion alone. But then along… Read more
