Publisher's Summary

Anna has waited a long time to fall in love, and now that she has, she's not going to let her boyfriend Charlie's mother stand in her way. Meredith Granger is frighteningly well-cultured and impossible to impress. So far, Anna hasn't even been allowed to meet her. But when Charlie leaves the country on business for the summer, Anna decides to take matters into her own hands. Reinventing herself from top to toe, Anna embraces a whole new life. Garden parties, Sunday tennis, little vintage dresses from Laura Ashley - it seems almost too easy. It's only when she tails Meredith on an Art Explorers' trip to Andalucía that she wonders if things might be rather more difficult.

Skip it

It was dull drivel. Sorry, I deleted it because I couldn't find a single character I cared about. When I was rooting for Anna to get caught in her web of lies, left by her lover and dumped by her girlfriends I realized that this book was a waste of time. Vapid and dull. Quite a combo.

Loved it

I keep looking out for more audio books by this author. I thought this book was hilarious. The main character was totally realistic and I loved all the scenes at the office with the "boys." Caro, the best friend is oh so how it really is...we've all have one like her. Same goes for the boyfriend...unfortunately. Nice book.

Don't waste your time on this one!

Even the most experienced narrator cannot help when the story sucks: Way too long, unrealistic (even for a romantic novel) and a quickly written end. Would in no way recommend it.

Boring

I found this to be a very long drawn out episode and could have been summed up in half the time. It did not hold my interest and took several weeks to finish. I was disappointed to say the least.

There are probably better books

This book seemed to drag on and on, and only got mildly interesting (to me anyway) toward the end. I found myself pulling for the main character, but knew what would happen as it because apparent, toward the end. I think my money could have been better spent on a different title.

Great commuting book

I have a two hours' drive each way to and from work, and this book made the time speed by (unlike the traffic).

Terrible ending.

Terrible ending.
A lot of build up only to fizzle out at the end of the story.

  • Overall

Very "English" in its humor

The book probably could be written with half the words, repetitively described situations. Very British in the style of writing and settings. Not a favorite of mine.

  • Overall

It is not your traditional romance its better!

You fall in love with the main character right away, she does things that make you cringe, and laugh out loud. She reminds us of the crazy things a women would do in the name of love. I thought this was a funny book and I LOVED it. In my opinions it is not your traditional romance its better!
