HOUSEWIFE IN TROUBLE
on 30 December 2016
Overall an 'OK' light-hearted chick-lit.
Other than the fact that I had no prior knowledge of the characters, I cannot say my not having read any of the previous books impeded on my reading of this, the fifth novel in the series, which began a whole new chapter in the protagonist's life, that of a newly-wed. However ...
Humorous (though it never quite had me laughing out loud) in places but grossly stereotypical. Still, they say stereotypes exist for a reason and I think many readers will see something of themselves (or someone they know) ... even if it is just the 'snoring rhinoceros' of a partner ... in Helen, her sister, new mum, Julia and/or best friend, Leoni.
To sum it up in four words .... 'It had its moments'. I'm just not certain I'll be seeking out any of the other four books.
