Ma in amore, si sa, non c’è regola che tenga.

Ah I LOVED this book! It's so deceptive, how it explores the very nature of true love in the context of a story wound around several people in a Highland village. How love gets stale with familiarity and how people confuse newness and the thrill of meeting and getting to know someone as being true love, that they're The One, yet it will too go stale again after a while. So many different strands, questions and thoughts, and really strong, believable characters. Definitely going to check out more ...more

Ania is a marriage counsellor and she thinks she knows everything about love. She can perfectly handle it until Maciek, a Polish man, turns up. From then, she isn’t sure anymore about love and a perfect marriage.

The marriage of Rose and Harry is in crisis. Rose cheated on Harry and they can’t deal with each other anymore, so they decide to contact Ania for help. Will they stay together?

Sam, Harry and Rose’s son, is fed up with his parents, but he meets Maciek with who he feels at ease and he too

The blurb on the back of the book and the Guardian's review on the front led me to believe that this book would be funny. If it was meant to be funny then the comedy was lost on me. I actually found it quite depressing. The characters are depressing and it's set in a small, depressing town in Scotland.
The book is easy to read, I finished it in 3 days and I was quite interested to see what happened at the end but this book is nothing special. It just made me feel a bit glum and not in a good wa

Failed love, unrequited love, teenage love - and other permutations. Closely depicts problems of boredom in marriages, the anguish of illicit love and the lies we tell ourselves, as well as others. I enjoyed this book, felt the characters were believable. My only slight niggle is with the lack of come-uppance for one particular character at the end, and the consequence of his action. Can't say more or it would be a spoiler!

2.5! Sigh, I think I was fooled by the title thinking it's some bittersweet love story.

Because of the often only mediocre critics I read about this book, I didn't have too great expectations. Despite the bittersweet ending, I loved it. Its style remind me to a fast-forwarding movie, from which we see only napshots, especially in the beginning, then slowly it turns into an actual story.
I was happy about the Polish line, it brings back some very nice memories. :)

I read this because the author is going to lead a writing group I'm joining. I like her style. I feel I know something about her characters, sometimes but not always. She entertains and I did want to know how it would end and what would happen to people. I'm not sure I cared about them, but I was invested in them. Good book.
