This review is from: The Engagement Party (Kindle Edition)
R J Gould does a nice humorous line in awful men and tough, resilient, stroppy women. If you thought your own family were embarrassing, just read this. There are so many scenes where you think the characters couldn't get more impossible, but they do. The characters are amusing, but they're also interesting. Gould has made the reader look forward to the next appearance of even the obnoxious Reginald, to see what further disaster awaits him, using accident, misunderstanding and the sheer perversity of fate to keep you wanting to read on. He also shows how each turn and twist in the story inevitably follows from what the characters are like.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, and read it in one sitting. Then I read it again, and I saw new meanings in scenes that I hadn't spotted the first time round. I'm looking forward to reading "The Reunion".
