The decent plot suffers from several things which made the pace lackadaisical :
- fillers of scene after scene getting over-stretched & drawn out for more deliberate impact. Just like ratings-mad daytime soap opera where alleged murderess is on the stand being grilled by D.A., "did U kill him ?", cue the dwamatic crescendo violin, commercial, distraught heroine squeezes every drop outta tearducts, next day : same cliffhanger.
- H/h parroting each otha's questions & sentences. Evah heard of

Hero and heroine marry for convenience because the sex is good and they want kids. Much sex and navel-gazing ensues.

I was born in Nottinghamshire, England, but I didn't live there for very long. The family moved to West Yorkshire when I was just eighteen months old and so I have always regarded Yorkshire as my home. I grew up there as the middle child in a family of five—all girls—in a home where books were vitally important and I read anything I could get my hands on.

Even before I could write I was making up s
