Readable but not a great book, not sure if I would buy any more from this author at this point

Not bad for a freebie, it rambled on a bit so wouldn't have been my choice if I'd had to pay for it.

These fiction novels, and it is hard for the reader to remember that they are just that, as many divorcees will be able to empathise with Jackie’s situation of trying to find ‘The One’. This author’s witty musings on what it is like to be female, single again and juggling everyday life of balancing work, parenthood, health, money and to have to be ever enterprising, and of how women can ‘judged’ more than men in certain situations. The ‘Don’t Forget Your…’ novels are not merely ‘another’ romantic fling, because they are anything but, the really telling differences; heading up each chapter are quotes by Robert Graves, Jeanne Bourgeois, Carlo Goldini, Sir John Pentland Mahaffy to name but a few and wise proverbs. With intelligent references to geographical, historical and political events within society. This is an author is very well-read and travelled. I hope that doesn't make these sound boring and joyless, because they anything but. Rather, Taylor-Justice pays her reader the compliment of assuming they have read something other than boy meets girl magazines.
While one may find some practical advice on the dos and don’ts of dating in later life, this book is not a self-help book, out with the tongue in cheek steamy dating encounters, is a far more deeper insight to why we make certain decisions and how family, friends, work colleagues, things and events in our lives help to shape who we are, and who and what really matters in life.
The advantage of fiction books such as these: readers can take the advice offered selectively, discard what bears no relevance to their life, and embrace the parts that make you nod and smile. Through life’s ups and downs Jackie manages to keep on laughing, word of warning it’s infectious, at times I was laughing ‘out loud’.
An enjoyable and insightful read. ‘Don’t Forget Your…’ series is infused with light-hearted wit, warmth, wisdom and a refreshing dose of common sense with a rainbow at the end.

Was a fab book to read on my daily commute. A feel good journey that I'm sure most of us can relate to in one way or other. A well recommended read.

I really enjoyed this:-great holiday read and laugh-out-loud funny in bits. Lots of emotions and situations I could well relate to as a woman of a certain age! Hope Jackie writes more of the same. Can't wait for Part 2 !!

This book was very entertaining and quite funny at times. Was well written and very enjoyable. The writers experiences in the pursuit of finding 'the one' were so funny.

Didn't find this book funny. Took me for ever to read it and found myself skipping through bits at the end.

Boring read
