On the face of it, this is a “chic lit” book featuring the usual cast of characters (best friends, gay mate, handsome neighbours, slightly disfunctional family). However, this book is much more in-depth than that. It’s funny and intelligent, much like its chief character and narrator, Annie. I fell in love with Annie and Sam. Their story made me laugh out loud, and occasionally cry. I was caught up in the story, didn’t want to put it down, finished it within 2 days, then wished I hadn’t as I wanted to carry on enjoying it. There’s a definite feel-good factor to this book. It’s beautifully written, with wit and insight which extends beyond Annie and Sam to the proliferal characters, who were well rounded and believable. I particularly liked the way the author started and ended the book with the same premise, again a sign of a well-written story. I really, really loved this book and would highly recommend it as it deserves to be a big hit.
Thanks to Love Reading for sending me this book to review
