I absolutely loved this book and I’m fairly sure I would have devoured it in one sitting if I had more free time to actually sit down and read. I had no idea what to expect from this story because the synopsis doesn’t really give away too much. I glanced at the cover (which is gorgeous, by the way) and I thought it would be a nice, atmospheric Christmas read. Something light you can curl up with under a warm blanket, a mug of hot ch...more
I couldn’t wait to get stuck into this one, the cover is gorgeous; it screams classic chick lit, the blurb was simple yet appealing and it contains all the essential ingredients: betrayal . . . check, drama . . . check, exboyfriends . . . check. But don’t be fooled, this is no fluffy rom-com. The story has so much more depth and feeling than an easy chick lit read, as you are taken on a deep journey into Sarah’s head and come out feeling exhausted after living a month of her hurt, tears and joy....more

This book has been sat on my bookshelf for some time, just waiting to be read. I had been waiting for winter to set in, as the cover is so beautifully wintery. The cover is a little deceiving; it makes you feel like it will be a christmassy book. Whilst this book is the ideal book to settle down with in front of the fire on a crisp winter day, it isn't a Christmas eve read. (For that I would recommend the author Scarlett Bailey and her fabulous Christmas books!)

I very much enjoyed this book. It...more

Once More With Feeling is the first Megan Crane book I've read but I really liked her style of writing, particularly at the beginning as Sarah tries to come to terms with the way her life is suddenly turned upside down. I couldn't help feeling for Sarah and the horrible situation she was in and felt enraged on her behalf but Sarah frustrated me at times too. I wanted to shake her and tell her to stand up for herself and stop allowing her family to walk all over her. Her parents and sister are th...more
This book is one that you will want to grab a warm cup of cocoa and cuddle up with under a blanket for awhile. I read this book in one sitting and I purposefully saved it for close to the holidays. As I read this book I was hit with tons of emotions and I felt like I was facing a harsh winter storm with our main character, Sarah, who has just found out that her husband is cheating on her…with her sister. This book takes readers on a rocky roller coaster ride as we are with Sarah every step of th...more

This is my first Megan Crane novel and I must say, before reading this, I had heard many wonderful things about her previous releases, so I was very much looking forward to starting this.

The cover is absolutely stunning, with snow, New York and a lot of sparkle. It appears from the cover that this is a light, fluffy, chick-lit read, but don’t be fooled, because this book is so much more than that.

Sarah works as a lawyer at a partnership which she owns with her husband Tim. She has a nice house,...more
Really enjoyed this book and was really disappointed when I reached the end.

Sarah discovers her husband has been having an affair with her sister. This makes Sarah start to question the path she has taken with her life. So Sarah starts re-visiting her past to try and find herself. She finds her old friend Brooke then she finds her first true love Alec. But can they help her see why she married Tim and also become a lawyer and live out her dreams of going travelling.

I got really caught up in thi...more
I could not stand the weakness of Sarah.
Got caught up in the protagonist's self-righteous indignation - but towards the end, author made her "escape plan" a necessary solution to all this crazy bitter circumstances. Hero was made part of that plan right fom the start, making his "flaw" to be a "strength" after all - doing a 360 to her POVs just because a curveball of the half-antagonist made.
Also realized that that half-antagonist easily changed POVs - just because of the accident? He lost his charming, self-placating personality? Am...more
It took me a good couple of chapters to really get into this, as I didn't find Sarah a particularly likeable character initially. To avoid spoiling this for anyone else, I will simply say that (to paraphrase the words on the back of the book) "Sarah suffers the very worst of betrayals". She subsequently revisits old friends and locations, and wonders how her life has come to this when it wasn't really what she wanted. Time, family and friends help her to make her decision....

Megan Crane knows how to explore the intricacies of relationships whether between friends, family, partners. On every level this book was well written. I started and couldn't put it down. She really gets down to the real 'whys' behind the actions of people, not what they 'say' informed their various decisions. I'm off in search of my next Megan Crane book.
This book is much more than a story of falling in and out of love, it is a story of searching for oneself, and I love it for it. Sometimes happiness is not in the easy things, it's in the things we call dreams, no matter how much we are scared to make them into a reality. Something to remember.

I really enjoyed this book. Well written and you are gripped by the main character instantly. I wanted to smack the sister though. The lesson here is do you want to be loved or do you want to be married There is a very big difference. This is a good journey to take in life
While I enjoyed this book, I found hat the 'monologue' style (the whole book is written in first person) meant that some parts were dragging, especially in the beginning. I found it interesting, though, to follow this person's realisations, so, yes, it was still a good read.
I really wish that there was a second book to give us a glimpse into the lives of Alec and Sarah!

This book has made it to my favorites list and most definately my to re-read list!

Megan Crane is a New Jersey native who had great plans to star on Broadway, preferably in Evita, just like Patti LuPone. Sadly, her inability to wow audiences with her singing voice required a back up plan. Accordingly, she graduated from Vassar College and got her MA and PhD in literature from the University of York in England. She wrote her doctoral dissertation on AIDS literature, mostly so she...more
