Bad story. Bad characters/characterization. Especially the "heroine" Suzy, silly, shallow and utterly dislikeable. There is a huge difference between between fun and simply bad behaviour.
Milkshake presented to policeman Harry as her "husband's" sperm. Her Scarlet dress at her mother's funeral. Alarm bells were ringing but it was the confusion of her former husband rock musician Jaz and Suzy's friendship with his other ex- or present wives which made me realize the silliness of it all.
It does not deserve even one star. Not only is it a waste of money, but hugely irritating since I was expecting some light and clever escapism as for instance "Staying at Daisy's".
Jill Mansell has a strong name but it doesn't much help when something like this goes into production.
Good at Games, like all Jill Mansell's novels is packed with humour and a main character you can't help but like (even though I was convinced at the start she wouldn't be my sort of person, Suzy quickly grew on me).
I've found that a lot of chick lit novels (not just Jill Mansell's) can be quite predictable and you figure out the ending as soon as the relevant male character is introduced. I didn't find this to be the case with this novel, I was over half way through before I had an inkling of the end, a refreshing change.
I can highly recommend this book - and when you've finished this you should read through her others, they're really worth giving a try.
