Light reading, perhaps for long winter nights, but the tale never really went anywhere.
Found the two so called best friends unrealistic and at times, too good to be true. Who on earth would allow their ex lover, who has had nil contact for six months, after absconding with all her hard earned money, to suddenly appear at her door, then, offer him to stay the night, whilst they busied themselves making cookies, in the kitchen??
Then, after two days of pontificating, she makes her decision but, does not talk to her best friend about her agonising decision. Close friends would talk about their love lives and hopes, dreams and rejections. Not these two, too busy baking cookies and picking carpets zzzzzz
The best character for myself, was Molly, her character could have been expanded on to make this dreary tale far more interesting.
So, as you have gathered, a totally boring tale. You may enjoy it. Hope you do
Meanwhile, Lynne's daughter Molly starts teaching at a difficult secondary school, and finds it much tougher than she expected. And when they go to visit Lynne's retired in-laws, they have an unexpected but exciting suggestion for Lynne's future...
The writing is good, although there were many places where we were told what people were thinking, or just read a summary of what happened rather than seeing the scenes - it felt as if it were rather rushed through. There was a lot of potential for more subplots, but they didn't materialise - instead it turned into a mild romance for Lynne, Jess and Molly, all of whom meet new people, and all of whom still have feelings for their former boyfriend or husband. It was a bit complicated remembering who was whom, at times, and it rather weakened the rest of the story having so many growing relationships.
Still, it made pleasant enough reading. The romances are very low-key, and the writing is entirely family-friendly. The characters are a bit flat, but then that's to be expected in such a short book. Free for my Kindle, it made undemanding breakfast-time reading.
My main criticism is one which applies to more or less all of these free books. I presume that these are 'self-published, if there is such a thing, as the spelling and grammar had not been edited at all. This is not just because the author is American, (she has live in England for a long time, after all) but because an editor/professional proofreader would have spotted the mistakes which rendered some sentences nonsensical. The reader can work out what was meant, but that is not what the words say!!
However, it was free, so maybe I am expecting too much for it? Decent enough chick lit, if you can overlook the errors - oh and all those flipping scones!!!!

Can't recommend it highly enough. I will be on the lookout for more of Kate Hewitt.
