      Very engaging characters, an interesting plot with lots of surprises and it's well-written! Look forward ro reading another book by this author.

    4. Anne Brooke

      This is a grown-up romance for real people and I loved it. The writing style takes a bit of getting used to as Holt has a particular liking for reported conversations - whereas I would have preferred to read the conversation directly as it took place. However, once I got used to that style quirk, I really did find this story gripping and very well done. All the characters were well-rounded and fascinating, and the main character, Alberta, is just delightful. There is wit, laughter and drama, all [...]

      Basically all the way through this book I kept thinking I couldn't be bothered to finish it, but then it was too hard to decide on another book to read, so I ended up finishing it.

      When this book arrived My wife branded it 'chick lit' and I never know if that is good or bad, after all she claims 'Con Air' is a 'chick flick'. She had already read a book by Debby Holt and said she enjoyed it so I settled down to read it.I was surprised to find myself quickly getting into the story of Alberta and her family and their many varied personalities. Life is ticking along very casually for Alberta and Tony who are living together and have for many years until the sudden death of Alb [...]

    8. The Cats Mother

      I don't read a lot of this sort of thing any more and I certainly don't buy them, but they do turn up in my book club and since 1. I pretty much read everything that comes my way unless it's fantasy or a war book, and 2. It's nice to take a break from violent death, and 3. Reading about other people's relationships always reminds me how lucky I am.This is typical British chook-lit, although not particularly funny. The title suggests there would be more about food, and the heroine is a caterer, b [...]

    9. Leanne Hunt

      This book was enjoyable to read but forgettable afterwards. I had to read the detailed review to remember what it was about and recall the nature of the crisis that kept the drama moving forward. I found it a little disappointing in that I could never fully engage with the main character, and perhaps it was that the personal choices she faced weren't explored deeply enough for my liking. Nevertheless, the story flowed smoothly and kept me hooked till the end, so it must have been suitably entert [...]

    10. Chloe

      A good book. Language seemed a bit too posh for me - I prefer something a bit more laid back which is why I only gave this three stars. Still a great read, full of secrets, strange sex obsessions and overall a very interesting read!!

    11. Lesley ^-^ Honestly Simple Reviews

      I have nothing against this book it has such a low rating because I just couldn't finish it I struggled to read the first 3 chapters after tht I stopped. I'm sure this book is very good But it just wasn't for me I'm so sorry

    12. Jason Lie

      Pros -Multiple storylines that interact in an engaging manner -Variety of Characters-Lack of predictability Cons-Slow start-Not all characters are interesting

    13. Harriet

      I thought this was a suprisingly good read, I liked the writing, the characters' dilemmas and it felt psychologically correct too. The book is deeper and more interesting than the cover suggests.

    14. Rachel Bremer

      Nice and easy read. Not the best book ever, but entertaining enough to get me through a few baby feedings.

    15. Nancy White

      Ehhhhhh. This novel is all-right-ish. Nothing special. Doesn't suck too hard.I don't really recommend it. There are better things to read.

    16. Marie

      I really enjoyed Debby's description in this story but I do have to say that the characters didn't really grab me which is a shame. I did finish reading the book.

    17. Riley Rox

      The book was more for 2.5 stars but I round it up and gave it 3 stars cause I don't want to be mean and give it 2 stars. I generally enjoy this genre however this book is a no for me. It was beyond slow moving with very dull characters and the scandal wasn't much of a scandal per se for a chick lit. I liked Dylan but he was barely mentioned so I don't know what happened there.
