Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married by Marian Keyes
I should have realised I wouldn't have liked it by the recommendation from the Daily Mail.

Comparisons to Jane Austen are scandalous - she would never have muddled up whether to use I or me - as in "she gave it to Charlotte and I". If that doesn't bother you, you'd probably enjoy the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 8 Jun 2014
He still has the gorgeous voice, and there's some nice slight-reworkings of oldies (both his own and standards)
but I don't care much for the new songs - not catchy or melodic - particularly the first track seems to wander about & never settle into an actual tune. I won't actually give it away, but it will probably sit on the shelf untouched for a long time.

I tend to trust a book that the Guardian likes, but this is out of this world. I've read many P&P "sequels", and this is one of the best. Couldn't put it down - and couldn't predict the end right up to the final chapter.
