Customer Review

on 20 October 2013
This is a book filled with strong female characters, packed with neat observations of life and the relationships that women have with each other.

Maddy moves back to her home town, with her own young daughter, when she has run out of all other options; her mother offers her a job and a chance to escape a failed romance. Her relationship with her mother has been strained since she was a child and it doesn't seem as though living together is going to make it any easier.

During an online auction, to buy a samovar that looks like Aladdin's lamp for her daughter, she starts being outbid by someone who seems as desperate for the lamp as she is; this sets off a series of emails with the other bidder that quickly border on flirtation and Maddy enjoys it. It all changes when she realises that the person she's been flirting with lives in her home town too.

A very enjoyable read, more than your average chick-lit even if you know the outcome from the start; there are enough twists and turns to keep you interested.
