nothing like as good as her others
on 24 February 2008
Having loved all Wendy Holden's witty romantic comedy books so far, this is a huge disappointment. It will be a bestseller because other fans will, like me, just buy it thinking she is always to be relied on. Not this time, folks! The characters and plot start out almost as good as usual, but possibly because she wanted a big chunky book, she writes in almost too many people, puts in not enough time on some and too much spent on others, and the end is so sudden and summed up in one quick chapter, that it is almost as though she ran out of ideas - or even had someone else finish it. Very poorly written ending, even though she tells us what happens to most of the people in the village, I really wasn't that bothered by then! She definitely 'lost the plot' with this one.
