Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Rory is shocked to find herself single and out of her own home after an argument with her long standing boring boyfriend of 11yrs.
Moving in with her Aunt Lydia at her boarding house she finds herself trying to figure what happened and who she is without Martin. Having only had the one suitable boyfriend she is talked into dating a series of unsuitable men. This leads to various hilarity as she dates a man over double her age, a sex crazed intern years younger, a war correspondant and an unemployed musician. Whilst trying to figure out where things went wrong for her and Martin, if the gorgeous helpful nice plumber is really up too or is simply a nice guy whilst struggling to keep her job.

This is definitely a chick lit book. It won't set your world on fire but it will give you an enjoyable read and a good giggle, especially when the Rory drops the sex starved intern in it, and if you've been dumped then you'll completely understand where Rory is coming from.
If you want a book that doesn't require too much deep thinking and has a happy ending this is the one for you.

I haven't read a chicklit book in over two years. I think the last series I read was the Shopaholic series and I stopped at Shopaholic and Baby. However, this did catch my eye when I read a review in a magazine and I have to say that although it was very funny in places I was expecting to be a little more 'wowed' by it. As is goes, it's the same old formula and you can tell how the story will end half way through the book. However, it was still enjoyable in places but during the last quarter I found I wanted it to hurry up and get to the HEA because I was pretty sure where it was going.

Although I did sympathise with poor Rory's situation (The ex was a true pig) I often wanted to shake her as she seemed to be so insipid and wimpish when it came to him. I felt she let him get away with so much. Yet..she was very abrasive and outspoken to people in her every day life and those who were nice to her. I mostly enjoyed the scenes in her workplace, especially with the Totetastic Toffs. I could not help but chuckle at her posh workmate, Ticky. There were some brilliant lines from her and for me, she was definately the best character in the book.

This is a fun, fluffy read. If you're into chicklit then I'm sure you will love it. If you fancy reading something that won't tax your brain but will definately have you laughing on the train to work then this would be a good book to chose.

This is the first novel I have read by this author. I bought this book based on rave reviews I had read on this website, however I was little disappointed.

It took me until half way through the story to get interested in any of the characters. The central character Rory who has been dumped by sensible boyfriend Martin, and has subsequently moved into her Aunt Lyd's house in Clapham, while working at an upmarket magazine, is not a very strong one. She just isn't someone you want to get behind and support. She has a good life, and I am sure she could have done more to help herself. Everything she says about Martin shows she knows he isn't really the right man for her, if she actually thought about it. I felt frustrated at how long it took Rory to realise this.

To the credit of this author I did think the book had a slightly different feel to others of this genre, in that it tried to explore, very lightly, older people's love lives and ageing in general. I enjoyed reading their scenes and toward the latter part of the novel, I finally became more interested in Rory's colleagues. I also thought Martin was good fun to read.

I enjoyed the unsuitable men the most, particularly Teddy and Luke. Malky was so obviously someone a girl like Rory would never date, not even for her column, so I was glad when that particular theme was dropped. Luke was the most amusing with his sexts.

Ultimately I am glad I persevered, but it made me chuckle a couple of times, but it wasn't what I'd call hilarious. It is an enjoyable light read, but easily forgettable. I saw the person Rory would end up with immediately, and it never really felt plausible, although again, it seemed a little different.
Not bad, but just too light weight in my case.

I loved this book so much, I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!
The tale is of Rory, who is a Woman settled in her 11 year relationship and we start the story to find her relationship ended, you may think a miserable book but no - this book has a cast of interesting vibrant characters which leap off the page into your heart. Where to start, well Aunt Lyd is wonderful and kind of an anchor in the story background, owner of a boarding house with 2 wonderful elderly residents, the fantastic witty/foot in mouth Tricky work'mate', who made me cry with laughter at her inappropriate comments which on a page make you laugh so much. (I would buy a book where Tricky was the main character in a second!), Jim - plumber with outrageous t-shirts, surprisingly warm hearted, and a cast of unsuitable men that will make you laugh and wince along with Rory, who is discovering just what she wants from her life and if she really is as heartbroken as she thinks she is. An uplifting, funny and heartwarming book that I could have read and read for longer than its many pages, loved it....
