I had so much enjoyment and fun with this book. I found myself eager to catch up on the next installment each morning.
It was so funny in places and took me on a tour of NYC with surprises around many corners.
English Scarlett's best friend is "out there" Oscar, Sean the boring boyfriend back in the UK, and Jamie is the handsome new "friend" - yes its quite typical chick-lit but it does have some great twists and turns.
With all the various movie and TV references, movie stars, NY landmarks and shops, you feel very familiar with the book.
Cant say much more - dont want to even hint on the big twist but I highly recommend this story, especially if you are planning a trip to NY.
This story was so different but so enjoyable. Its grumpy old man George, befriending male Gen Y plus a couple of years Justin. It took a couple of chapters to get use to the writing/narration but after say 15 mins, I was glued. It was lovely to see how, although both guys are so different, enhance each other's lives.
Such a good story. I don't usually pick stories narrated by men but this was a gem. Its the count-down to turning 40 with all the hic-ups inbetween. Highly recommended
Really good story. Kept me interested from the beginning. Clear and really interesting characters. Wee bit more serious than expected but that was the key to keeping me interested. Highly recommended
As always, great book to listen to. Newly divorced Juliet needs a flatmate, Floz moves in and become friends.
Juliet's twin brother Gus meets Floz and falls hard but just cant do anything right. Gus' best mate Steve has been in love with Juliet for years but she hates him even though every other female falls for him.
With Juliet's feisty temperament and Floz' quieter, calmer personality they make a great pair. Floz actually has a dark history so you really hope all goes well for her. The wooing of the 2 girls by Steve and Gus is just hilarious.
They get more and more desperate in their plans, which of course then go even more desperately wrong!
Dawn French's narration was great - the story is very basic, mum, daughter, son and dad - no great highlights or lowlights just very enjoyable. Did make me laugh out loud in more than a few spots - I'd highly recommend it
I very much enjoyed this story. There were a lot of characters to remember - so it took a few chapters for it all to gel but once I got into the flow, it was excellent. The different stories of all 5 women were so interesting and kept me enthralled. Milly Johnson so knows how to write a good book!
It was OK - I listened to the entire book but it was missing that "whats going to happen next" feel - I didn't really bond to the characters I just plodded along with their story, figuring out myself what would happen which was quite obvious. I wouldn't say not to read it, but just don't expect much.
Straight from the beginning, I really enjoyed this book. It took no effort to get absorbed in the story of the women and it kept me wanting to find out what was to happen, which for me is the sign of a great read/listen too. Highly recommended
As always, I so enjoy Milly Johnson's books. Her stories are so easy to follow, funny, heart warming etc and this one ticks all the boxes.
It is a light read but sometimes you just need the simple stories. As with most of Milly's books she always has that "secret" which keeps you reading as you have to find out what happens and this one is no exception.
It centres around a bunch of girl friends who go on a cruise and testimony to the writing, after finishing the book, I jumped on a cruising holiday website.
If you love Chick-lit, don't miss out on this one,
For some reason I was expecting a standard Chick-Lit book and didn't realise this was such a long and at times quite serious story but regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
There are a lot of characters who have their own individual stories but they do interlink and after a bit, and with the great narration, I was able to remember each character and who was who.
The story is pretty much about rich people who, as members of Lloyds of London, now face the prospect of losing everything they own. I didn't feel overly sorry for them but the story kept me riveted and wanting to know how it all pans out for each person/couple.
I always know it’s a good book when I listen to it not just at the gym but when I go shopping, clean the house, go for a drive etc. I just had to know what happened to everyone.
I do recommend this book.
