3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as her other books, 18 Oct 2013
This review is from: Coming Clean (Paperback)
I look to Sue Margolis for her likeable characters and zany plot lines. Sadly this book was lacking in both departments.

For starters we were immediately plunged into the marital problems of the primary characters. We never got to know them when things were going well between them so there was no reason to care whether the marriage worked out or not. I spent the book hoping that it wouldn't because the husband in particular seemed like such a jerk.

All of the characters seemed rather shallow and self centered and the children in the book really put me off. They came across as selfish, spoiled brats. In one chapter we read that the Dad cuts their visit to his mother (who adores them) short because the poor little tykes were traumatized at having to read books during their visit rather than watch TV. What a great message to teach your kids, "if the people who love you aren't sufficiently entertaining and don't give you what you want, bail on them."

The book had its moments but overall it was a bit of a disappointment.
