It's interesting that Lloyd and Rees were put together by publishers to write this book together but ended up falling in love with each other for real which I remember gave me a little warm glow when I read they eventually married and had children!
I will add that I wasn't as impressed with the sequel as I was with this first book but they're good writers and this can be read as a standalone. There is no cliffhanger like is the trend in today's books which is becoming more than annoying!
Come Together is co-written by a man and a woman and it tells two sides of a relationsip, alternate chapters reveal amy and jack's feelings. I'd be interested to know whther the authors each wrote one of the character's thoughs as the 'Amy' chapters are written very differently to the 'Jack' pages. This may be by design to distinguish between the characters' attributes, or it may just reflect Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees' different writing styles.
This was light hearted relief from a bad day; though I doubt I'll remember having read it in six weeks time!
However, these are nothing like `We are Family', primarily because these are essentially romantic novels, albeit with more interesting characters, but also because there was none of the "darkness" that made `We are Family' such a stunning read.
That's not to say that these are not enjoyable reads (`Come Together' more so, in my opinion) just in a very different vein.
`Come together' is funny, tender and very `real', maintaining the fine balance between being romantic and being soppy without ever becoming unrealistic. Furthermore, and unusually for a romantic novel, it has characters you can both relate to and care about.
`Come Again' is a sort of follow-on to `Come Together' in that it features many of the same characters, but they seem much more hastily put together, with far less depth to each in this one, so that I found it hard to become attached to any of them... in fact, they were only just likeable. Its saving grace is that, for a novel of its genre, it is definitely not predictable, and it made me smile on quite a few occasions.
