This was one of the potential candidates for the June CM Book Club’s chick lit read. Like the libraryaholic I am, I got this one out as well as The House of Peine.
This book was 400 pages long. It was not worth the effort I put into it. The first 100 pages were dedicated to mechanical introductions to each of the characters. The writing style left quite a bit to be desired as well. The entire mid section of the book started turning into the predictable chick lit that I was expecting, and then the ending. Well, that was something of a surprise. And how swiftly it was dealt with. Oh. My. Goodness.
If you take a trip through the Goodreads review of this book, especially those giving it one star, you will get a detailed commentary of the failings. Pretty much all of which I agree with. Please don’t waste your precious time on this. Sorry all of you writers out there. I try not to be too scathing because I know that you put a lot of time, effort, love and, no doubt, ego on the line when you produce something for the public. But sometimes you wonder what the author’s editor and publisher were thinking.
Anyway, I gave this 2 stars, simply because I managed to get through it without throwing it against a wall.
