Not as good as Jane's other books..
on 12 April 2014
I have to agree with other reviewers that the main character in this book was depressive. From the start of the book it becomes clear that she lives in the past and doesn't seem to have the skills to deal with family issues like most 40+ women. I didn't find myself rooting for her, I just wanted to see how it ended and I don't like not finishing a book.
I gave it three stars as the storyline was good, it was the characters that were the let down for me. I really wanted to shake Jen most of the time, she just seemed really pathetic, which is fine if they then come up trumps at the end, but I didn't feel that she did, she was still quite needy.
Jason couldn't have been more boring if he tried, I've heard of families sweeping things under the carpet but this Mastersons
