Product description

Amazon Review

Marian Keyes begins Watermelon with a rather inauspicious romantic opening when the heroine's husband leaves her for Denise from the flat downstairs the day their first child is born. Claire, the deserted wife and mother, returns to her family in Dublin and, after going through the required stages of "Loss, Loneliness, Hopelessness and Humiliation", begins to feel much better--so much better that when James tries to win his way back into her affections, he gets more than he bargained for.

The author's style is too blunt and her setting too suburban (with its all-too-human heroine struggling to keep her sanity, tend to her new-born baby, fight it out with siblings and begin to love again) to be a traditional romance, but there is enough chemistry and mystery to keep you guessing in the lip-smacking Watermelon--a dish that may not fill you up but will certainly give you a taster of Marian Keyes' work, of which there is much to sample, including Lucy Sullivan is getting Married, Rachel's Holiday and Last Chance Saloon. --Nicola Perry

Oh my god! I am so happy that this has finally come out on kindle edition.

I read this book about 9-10 years ago and fell in love with it. As I was traveling in New Zealand, I left it to the travellers book collection for other people to enjoy.

I couldn't seem to find it anywhere after that and was starting to wonder if I had the wrong name or made it up. 😂

I truly enjoy reading every book by Marian and I am so looking forward to reading the break and any others that some out in the future. Keep em coming Marian! Keep em coming!!

A bit obvious from the start and unbelievable that the baby she had sleeps from birth all night and seems to live its life in a bedroom with only a few visits by the mother.

A good read apart from the usual of the main character obsessing over a man's good looks! Ending was not very believable but all in all it was an engaging read that didn't involve too much effort.

I bought this for my daughter, last time I read it I was pregnant with her and laughed so much I thought I would give birth. It must be as good as I remembered as I haven't been able to get it off her. From memory a great read!

This is one of the best stories I have read so far.

I love Marian Keyes, especially the stories about the Walsh family and I really wish they would make them into films or short tv dramas.
