However, if you want a novel which is easy going, light and gossipy then this, the first of a series of novels by Debbie Macomber, is for you. Reminiscent of a short series of Desperate Housewives, you are taken along with the up's and down's in the lives and relationships of four focal, strong willed/stubborn and resilient women.
I enjoyed peeking into their worlds, with the prose written just like a TV script, and was made to feel wanting of things to go right for the characters, which kept me reading. I felt frustrated in parts, when the characters were making life and relationships hard for themselves - which I guess is an indication of how well you get to believe in them. There is nothing too gritty - though some difficult life topics come up - and the type of ending you hope for is waiting.
For the UK reader, you have to transport yourself to the US, with the 'mom's', types of bars and diners, car models and other Americanisms, but this doesn't detract from the themes or enjoyment, even when geography is referred to which you would only have some grasp of by looking at an Atlas.
I would say that this is a chick flick type of read, a great summer holiday time waster and when I want something light and fluffy again I will no doubt move on to Number 2 in the series.
