If nothing else it made me realise I'm a very happy mum@home!

If you like the kind of fictional short stories that are usually found in women's magazines then you'll like this. Similar style, but I thought slightly better than Alexander McCall Smith's novels.
Basically it's about ordinary people with ordinary lives and whose characters I found a bit depressing as they all seemed so unhappy with their lot. I prefer books that delve a bit deeper into people and give me more of an emotional rollercoaster ride, food for thought or a more exciting plot. With this you could see where it was going all along. There were a couple of surprises but not on any major level.
