Puns and plays on words fall off the page in abundance, to the extent you forget where the plot is actually going. The caddish husband, whose behaviour is excused because he just really loves his wife, and her love for him redeems him. The loyal wife, who bears the brunt of his odious behaviour, but puts up with it because she understands him, and once he realises that, everything will just be perfect. The endearing drunk. People who can't see what's under their noses, love-wise - but of course we can. It's a formula that has gone slightly stale.
The storyline was particularly weak, and the central characters disappointing. Tash has become even more of a doormat, wet and frankly irritating, while Hugo has turned into even more of a chauvinist pig - I was sorry to see the characters resurrected in the end. Hopefully they have been put to bed for good.
Now married for seven years with a young daughter and another baby on the way, the golden couple experience all the trauma of pregnancy and parenthood, the problems of juggling family life with careers and, most of all, sexual jealousy in the shape of a rather delectable new rider who challenges Hugo both personally and professionally.
There are times where the ensemble nature of the story feels too drawn out, and some of the characters are less than interesting. The Silva/Dillon sub-plot, in particular, feels like an unnecessary add-on. But the heart of the book centres on Tash and Hugo, and is done excellently, stretching beyond the more usual superficialities of typical chick-lit. This book doesn't quite escape the contrivances of the genre (why doesn't Tash ever ask Hugo about V?) but I still loved this.
To be honest I felt the book hadn't quite been edited enough, there seems to be a lot of surplus dialogue that slows the book down and makes it quite a chore to read at times.
I'm in no way telling people not to read it. If you're a big fan of French Relations and Well Groomed (not to mention Fiona Walker) then you will be willing to persevere as I was and as usual with all Fiona Walkers books, everything is nicely tied up at the end.
Kiss and Tell
What can I say, I loved both french relations and well groomed and kiss and tell is just a good, its nice to see Hugo and Tash back. Everyone is a disfunctional as ever and there are a lot of laugh in it. It will deffinately keep you entertained.
Perhaps some of the nagative reviews should read the book on its own merits rather that comparing it to other authors all the time, they might enjoy it more.
Can't wait for the next Fiona Walker book, Hoping we will have some returns of other favorites like Juno & Jay or Phoebe & Felix, just makes me want to read all the book again from the start.
I loved catching up with Tash & Hugo and Faith & Rory were the bestcharacters from the Lodes Valley books to bring along for the romp. The writing was excellent, fast paced and heartwarming although I have to say I did get frustrated with Tash and the way having babies seems to have made her lose her tongue, I mean if I was abandoned in Germany by my husband the first time I saw him again I wouldnt be jumping into bed with him!
I throughly enjoyed the re-visit to West Berkshire and the cotswolds, FW does wonders for portraying the english countryside set.
If you haven't read French Relations and Well Groomed I would advise reading these first but Kiss & Tell is a great stand alone book.
I really hope that her next book blows me away also, well done & thank you FW
