Product Description

Review

'Alliott creates warm, human characters that you instantly connect with... she'll entertain and surprise you with every chapter' (Sunshine Coast Daily, Australia)

'Compulsively readable...[not all is] sweetness and light in Alliott's world; darker themes are also found. This gives it all a sharper edge, and a feeling that real choices are being made by real people.' ( The Times )

Book Description

'Possibly my favourite writer...the writing is both sparkling and intelligent' Marian Keyes

I found this book very easy and relaxing to read. The story I found is a bit over the top, but once you're reading it you will actuall get into it and not find it not over the top ! This is the first novel I have read by Catherine Alliott and it certainly will not be the last as I've been out and bought 3 more ! Well worth a read in my opinion.

I read a lot of 'chick lit' and find much of it can be rather predictable and samey. I can't honestly report that this book was not quite predictable but it is a cut above the rest of the 'chick lit' out there. It is funny and charming. I liked the characters and cared what happened to them.

It is easy to read and dip in and out of, perfect for a holiday. A light hearted look at how sometimes we all misread situations and jump to conclusions when we don't have all the facts, this book is the one to read if you want a book which doesn't take itself too seriously. I guarantee it will make you laugh!

This was a book set & reviewed by our reading group.

The majority of people quiet enjoyed this book and found it amusing, her brother and his partner being the absolute stars. Our only real complaints were that it did end up a bit predictable and seemed to lose it's way a little after the first third before it then picked up again. Some of us were looking for something a little bit deeper & felt that other titles by this author had flowed better. But overall if you a looking for a book that does not make you think to hard and is a light funny read then it can be enjoyable.

For some reason I left this on my bookshelf for ages before finally picking it up- maybe because the plot on the back sounded a little far-fetched, maybe because it seems quite long. I don't know and can honestly say if I knew what the story was like I'd have picked this up much sooner.

It is a very engaging plot with some excellent twists. Very humorous in places but also touching, this is a real chick lit novel with a great plotline running through.

It follows the tribulations of Herietta Tate, a mother returning to work for the first time in years. The charcter is well built up and very engaging. It really feels as if we are right there with her at times which shows the writing must be good. The time passed so quickly when I was reading this that I stayed up late into the night on several occassions. It really does draw you in and, in my opinion at least, is a real page turner. Give it a try, it's defintely worth it.
