Not Another Happy Ending by David Solomons
Not Another Happy Ending by David Solomons
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the novelization of a film. These usually turn out dreadfully as the two forms are not that alike. This one, however, works well. The story is superficially light and frothy, but has a bit more bite to it than most light romances.

I ordered three of these to house my record collection after my move to a new house. They looked good, seemed adaptable to my needs, could stack or stand freely on the floor or could build into a larger unit. I thought they were on the expensive side for an MDF box, but was prepared to pay the price for the convenience.

But I did not receive three boxes. I received three parcels, each containing five pieces of MDF and a bag of screws and nuts. There was not even an alan key… Read more
