Breakfast at Darcy's was an enjoyable light novel. I purchased this after reading Ali McNamara's other novel from "Notting Hill to New York Actually" which I really enjoyed. The setting for this novel on a remote island off the coast of Ireland is different. I found the story interesting but felt there could have been more detail on the roles the people coming to live on the island were going to play. There were areas for instance, Darcy going to buy chocolate at the shop, what shop? In the planning for the island settlement there had been no mention of the shop. I would have preferred a bit more detail, however having said that I really enjoyed the book it was light and a bit different.
I loved the way the author bought the characters to life I felt you really got to know and like them.
I couldn't compare it with other chic lit novels this was not your usual romance more of an light interesting story with a touch of romance.
Beth Chalmer's performance was fine. I have not heard her other performances.
I am not sure this title was the right one. I feel it implies Darcy may have run a cafe or something. What else to call it? I do not know.
I loved the previous books in this series however the sex scenes are always so repetitive but this book is far worse Sam just kept repeating herself, as an example I want to lick your stars (tattoos) over and over again during the book. I have never known a family gathering (which is the basis of the series,) where the female characters talk about wanting orgasms ( "I want orgasms.) and talk to each other about "dick piercing" and so on. When I got to the bit where she was licking his scrotum I just had to fast forward. I enjoy sex scenes but with some variation not just repeating the same words over and over usually as soon as they arrived home her panties were wet as soon as he looked at her. Halfway thru this book I just fast forwarded all the sex scenes as they were so boring and had heard it all before. Would have loved more story or variation on the sex scenes this author is good a pity she just seemed to fill the book up repeating the same old thing. The other theme that seems strange as all the males are so jealous of the partner virtually after one meeting. I will try one more of her books probably in the hope her imagination has improved a bit.
I enjoyed this book as I have all of Mary Kay Andrews but the choices the main character made were quite ridiculous. Why would you move out of your home and just let the husband ruin her whole life surely the law would have stepped in. Do not know how he could get away with what he did nor understand how any judge would be allowed to act the way he did.
Another good read from this author. In places a bit far fetched but still entertaining.
I enjoyed the other books set in Paris from Juliette Sobanet but this book is absolutely pathetic I tried so many times to read it but finally gave up. Nobody
could be as stupid as the female in this book. Even the narrator who I normally enjoy sounded ridiculous through much of the story. An absolute waste of a credit.
I love Milly Johnson books just buy them as they become available. This one however was okay but probably the least favourite of all her books.
Here Come the Girls was great I listened to it quite a few times but this one
definitely is a once only listen.
I enjoyed the first book in this series but this was so far fetched it was ridiculous.
Who buys a house on the spot and can move in same day no matter how much money he had.
The sex scenes could have been cut by half or at least varied a bit so repetitive in the terrible breathy voice the narrator had. The book was very repetitive you could skip chapters and pick up where you left off. I skimmed thru this book.
I love anything Penny Vincenzi writes but this was so worth reading. Good story great narrater. Well worth it.
This was a fun highly unbelievable story but I loved it. I have purchased the next in series hope it is as good as this one.
This is another of Catherine Bybee's books which I enjoyed. Just a light fun book.
I have purchased all her books and enjoyed them all.
Good narration everytime which for me makes the book.
This was another fun read by this author. I have enjoyed every one of her books.
