5.0 out of 5 stars A Fabulous Summer Read!!!, 18 July 2001
This review is from: Out of the Blue (Paperback)
I loved this book and devoured it in a day and a half - despite being at work at the time! No mean feat I can tell you (hope my boss isn't reading this). Basically the book is a touching, and very funny portrait of a marriage which, though basically happy, has gone a little tired at the edges, combined with a real page-turning mystery involving Faith's best friend Lily, a glamorous magazine editor. What WAS Lily up to? (I guessed completely wrong) and what WAS Joss's secret? (ditto ditto). I thought Minty Malone was very funny and so is this: in particular, the stuff about Graham the dog and Faith's teenage daughter Katie, an amateur (but brilliant) psychiatrist - was hysterical. Lily is a wonderfully witty character - Faith putty in her hands, until she starts to wise up. Isabelle Wolff's plots are always unpredictable and I loved the clever twist at the end of this one. As with Minty I closed the last page with a huge soppy grin on my face and a sense of harmony restored. I can't wait to read the next novel by this insightful and very funny author.
