I found this book depressing and could not engage.
It was difficult to know how to judge this as I discovered when I had completed it, that I had not got the full book, just a sample.
As it went, it was fairly typical of the genre, but the reason for the title had not yet been made clear. when the sample ended.
I would probably give it a 3 star rating if it were complete, but feel that I can only give a sample 2 stars as I cannot be sure of where the story was going.
Here we have a shrinking violet hiding a lovely girl with curves and excellent skin and personality which shines through when she encounters real kindness.
And so she becomes a professional bridesmaid and finds romance.
A very sweet (! – think wedding cake icing) story.
A series of 5 books of which I only read the first as too bored to read further.
I kept saying ‘you can’t franchise the idea of a bookshop that sells coffee and cakes, and behaves as a community centre’ – and finally the heroine agreed. I really can’t even consider why anyone, even the author thought this was a good idea for an investor – so as the characters are clearly very far from business minded I decided, as they say on the Apprentice ‘You’re fired’ to the books.
What can I say? Robyn Peterman’s books are always funny – dirty funny it’s true – and potty mouthed to the extreme.
This is a series I love and have read avidly.
Hell is just not what we thought it was, and honestly, who can fault heroines who love their shoes?
