This book isn't the best book I've ever read by far, but I really don't understand all the 1 and 2 star ratings when it's a really entertaining read! It's not exceptionally moving or groundbreaking, but it's a gripping book that you'll enjoy from start to finish as you learn more about the characters. Somebody said Andrea was one dimensional - the book's plot doesn't allow for her to develop properly, that's true - but it doesn't stop her being a fun and likeable main character. I'd definitely recommend it especially for a holiday read. The film didn't live up to the book at all!

Yet another fabulous book by one of the best chick lit authors there is. Even more fantastic characters you can relate to, another story you get wrapped up in and a book you'll be really sorry to get to the end of. If you're a Mansell fan already, there's no excuse not to read this one! You won't be disappointed.
