Sorry Nona, this may be an updated version but I just wonder how bad the original version was – this book is really just a set of scenes and I couldn’t find a character in either Adam or Elyse to believe in. I did read to teh end to see if there was anything there..
Oh What naughty girls these authors are – and what fun they had with puns… about plumbing! And such a fun storyline – with lots of husbands – the more the merrier seems to be their motto/creed.
So yes, it was an enjoyable light read. Not high literature but good saucy – and a bit – paranormal reading with humour and some originality.
She is a lover of books, red wine, cats and coffee and is not a morning person. She is a bit too sarcastic and swears too much for polite society and definitely tells too many dirty jokes.
She hates tapioca pudding, loves to binge on cheesy horror movies, and is a slave to many cats. When she’s not vacuuming fur off of her couch, C.M. can be found with her nose buried in a book or her eyes glued to a computer screen. She’s the author of over thirty novels – romance, new adult, fantasy, and young adult included. Please, come and join her inside her crazy. There’s a heck of a lot to do there.
Oh, and Caitlin loves to chat (incessantly), so feel free to e-mail her, send her a Facebook message, or put up smoke signals. She’s already looking forward to it.
What comes next, in life, and love, after the death of someone you love deeply. And can you move on?
A nicely judged follow-on from the best-selling ‘Me Before You‘ which left you sobbing when he when to Dignitas.
So Louisa is still struggling with her grief and this quote exemplifies her feelings.
I was given the sample chapter of Still Me the next book in the series to read and whilst i liked it , there was enough to judge the book I thought, but must assume it is as good as this book.
I have a problem with this book and the storyline. As soon as I read that the husband was dead I knew that the family would be bankrupt, forced to live elsewhere and very down-market and shabby. It was the too obvious next scene in the story.
Why didn’t Nina register as unemployed immediately? And why didn’t she ask for the flat to either have a reduced rent due to the condition? Or get her cousin to improve the state of it, especially as sleeping on old mattresses is very unhygienic. She could probably have got a loan from Social Services to buy a new one even.
And also, when you are told you are bankrupt, the first thing you do is to go through the house and wear all your jewellery – or hide it in your handbag or… AND take all the food in the cupboards and freezer instead of abandoning it. I realise it is not such a good storyline but still really.
So the main character annoyed me and I felt that the story could have been much better constructed.
It is really great to have a male writer writing about his male character’s weight and dieting issues.
I found this book funny but with pathos as the lure of the cake, the biscuits, pork pies and even the burgers undo every effort our hero makes – even using his cycling machine.
He does manage to resist the lure however of the sex-hungry receptionist at work – even if only just.
Fun reading with a well portrayed central character.
My husband who also read it, found it punchy, funny, and insightful and would like to read more of this author.
