1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely dire...sorry, 1 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Never Can Say Goodbye (Paperback)
I bought this book along with books by Jenny colgan, katie fforde, trisha Ashley etc to take on holiday. I had a lovely time reading the others which are undemanding and well written. I don't know if I'd od-ed on this genre of fiction but I could hardly read this book..the concept of ghosts and the tone of the book were ludicrous. I know I'm in the minority here but i didn't find that the main character Frankie rang true nor did "Beckhamesque" Dexter Valentine. It got left behind at the hotel and it has put me off ever reading another by the same author.

I am sorry you didn't enjoy this book - I too love Chistina Jones, Katie Fforde, Trisha Ashley and Jill Mansell -but I wouldn''t describe them as 'undemanding'. I think it must be very difficult to create a book that's easy to read - but if, Sybil F, you may be used to reading Proust and Joyce, I suppose you might find them a little light for your tastes. Of all the chick lit, I read, Christina Jones' books are probably my favourites, I love the tone - by which I'm surmising you mean the humour, quirky characters and distinctive voice. I've read almost every one of hers and loved Never Can Say Goodbye.

Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the book Sybil, but if you find the concept of ghosts ludicrous, then obviously it wasn't the book for you! I've read all of Christina Jones' books, and have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them, and would happily recommend them all to anyone (as long as they enjoyed a touch of magic!)

I think you missed the entire pointof the book - and by not reading Christina's other books, you are missing a lot - they are enchanting (literally) and an immense pleasure to read.
