About the Author
Kate Lawson was born on the edge of the Fens and is perfectly placed to write about the vagaries of life in East Anglia.

Initially I thought I wasn't going to like this book but after a couple of chapters I couldn't put it down. I'm not going to bother with a synopsis of the story as other reviewers have already done this and you can read it on the back of the book or on the Amazon summary page, but I must mention some of the characters.
When critiquing a book people often say" I couldn't warm to this character" or "I really disliked this character" as if it's a bad thing but for me, if a character really gets up your nose then they are well written!
Max was selfish, arrogant deceitful and a total snake, Marnie was so cringingly thick skinned and awful that I wanted Molly to give her what for, big time!
Molly was the sort of mother every bride should have, warm hearted, kind and with only her daughters best interests at heart, never interfering even when she desperately wanted to, a divorcee who had found her happy ending with the lovely Nick.
I wanted to shake Jess and tell her to grow a spine but love really is blind.
This is a very easy story to read light but with enough substance to make you continue reading, it's not thought provoking or cerebral just a lovely story and the epilogue is actually very clever!
Without giving anything away...it was fantastic. I had to keep reading to the end.
The characters were amazing: completely believable and heart-breakingly human.
For anyone who has ever watched someone they cared about make a complete balls-up! It's like watching a car-crash unfold. You want everything to work out and know it just can't or won't.
I adored this book and am now rushing off to find more of hers!
