There was many a moment when I found myself laughing out loud and soon found that I couldn't put it down.
The book starts with the main character, Caitlin, having a tragic accident and the author really takes you on a journey of feeling sympathetic towards her to loving her and at other time thinking she being over paranoid. It really explores the vast range of emotions that can be experienced after such an accident. This is thrown together with humor and some clever plot twists.
I would say that it can be predictable at points but it is enjoyable and doesn't feel like hard work to read.
I would defiantly recommend this book for anyone who is looking for something that is fun and fresh and that is not just a typical romantic story that dominates many books these days.
Set in Belfast and based around the rosy life of Caitlin, a young rising star in the trauma nursing profession, the plot suddenly turns dark when she suffers a dramatic accident on holiday. The discomfort of Caitlin's recovery and her attempts to return to normal life provide, L.K. Watts with a rich field in which to explore the dynamics of emotions, relationships and the everyday dilemmas that all readers can recognise. Complications emerging in her marriage to a similarly bright star husband, who just happens to work in the same hospital, are all too plausible, and expose the frailties of human relationships when subjected to trivial oversights and the desire of one partner to be protective. The behaviour of both parties lead to some deliciously tangled consequences, which spice up the story nicely, while a few seemingly unrelated threads, like Caitlin's sister and her dog, keep the story rooted in the real world.
Watts has a good feeling for the way people respond and behave under stress, and has crafted an intriguing story out of a simple premise. As a first novel it is a very creditable work that is well worth reading. Readers can expect to see a lot more good stories from this author in the years to come.

Basically it was a story about a trauma nurse coming to terms with emotional problems after a severe head injury. (Not Fun) Dealing with personality changes and with problems in her marriage (again not fun). Not to mention her husband was being stalked and accused of sexual harassment. (no fun there either.
I stuck with it simply to see how it ended which was pretty much with a whimper. The author seems to tire toward the end and wraps things up pretty quickly. There were a fair number of homophones and grammar errors no matter British or American as well. The Irish vernacular and phrasing may be more than the average reader will care to wade through. There are many British and Australian writers who write in more neutral style than this author.
Thank you for writing a great story. You've done very well!
