Acquired via BookCrossing 21 Jan 2006 – BookRing

I say I’m not one for the chicklit – but I like my Maeve Binchy, Cathy Kelly and Marian Keyes, and this came up to standard. A touch of the Wendy Perriams in there too, I felt. It had the chick-lit themes – pastel cover, woman character overcoming adversity, amusing friends etc, and I have to admit I wasn’t hugely into the *idea* of the book – but it was actually very good, well written, exciting and well done in general. You could care for the characters. And for me, it was absolutely lovely to see my home city, Birmingham, written about so well and accurately. So excited when they went to Kings Heath – where I live! And Hudsons was in it too (I’m thinking of making sure a copy is always in the Hudsons OBCZ – even though it’s “old” Hudsons that’s in the book!)

I will look out for a copy of her other book, “Old School Ties”, when I have a less mountainous TBR. Another triumph for BookCrossing!
