I had hoped that the soundtrack to The Gift had been a one-off thing, but no, it's back here as well. I like detail but I don't really need to know the precise detail down to naming the songs listened to unless it's relevant. This wound me up with The Gift and it did here too.
I didn't find the characters overly likeable and there were a lot of pages, repetitive pages, of how desperate Kat was for a child. I got it quite quickly how she felt, but it just went on and on. I also had issues with the plot, the whole surrogacy thing happened way too quick and conveniently so I did find myself eye-rolling (a lot!)...but then I guess that's the story and without it there'd be no story, so suspension of disbelief is definitely required.
That said, I read this book in less than 48 hours and did find it to be a page-turner, despite what I said above, as I was taken in by the story and on more than one occasion thought I had it all summed up rather nicely only to discover that I didn't and really was very wrong in my assumptions. The epilogue is pretty decent but didn't really save the rest of it for me.
I know this author is very popular within my blogging circle and she'll not be short of readers but I think I'll be leaving it there.
