Lizzie is an "agony-aunt" (like a Dear Abby, but in London). She falls head over heels for Matt, who just happens to be maried (though he doesn't tell her this at first). At about the same time, she starts receiving long letters from Rachel, a high-powered self-absorbed ad exec. who seems to be having a little marital trouble. Well, it doesn't take a genius to figure out how this is all going to work itself out. Badly. Almost as badly as the way this story is written and told in general. Lizzie ...more
It's an interesting tale about "agony aunts" and infidelity. Lizzie is an agony aunt and she loves it. She's anxious about going to an office meeting and doing something to embarrass herself. she meets Matt after he moves in and saves her from the unwanted attentions of a fellow dj. They're attracted to each other and it looks as if a romance is in the works. It's too bad Matt can't bring himself to tell Lizzie he's married. Further complications arise when Lizzie responds to a letter asking for ...more
Fair read. Single woman meets a great guy and learns he's married.

So I had hopes (not necessarily high hopes, just hopes) for this book, but I was really disappointed with it. Just another lame girl doing lame things over an equally lame boy. I must be a glutton for punishment, because I did check out another book from the same author, but I decided I will give her another chance. If I'm disappointed again there will be no going back for thirds. PS: Also- this is a british author and I did not care for the publisher's choice for single quotations for speech ra ...more

Easy read on holiday at beach
i loved it until the very end. i wasnt happy with the way it endd at all. the story was really good until the last four or five pages though!
This book gives me hope in that I write much the same way Jane Sigaloff does. Maybe, if I can ever finish anything, I can get published, too! This book also gives me something to think about in that I don't really think it's . . . structurally sound? I'm not sure how to say what I'm thinking (so how good a writer can I be?), but I'm going with this. Interesting story, though.
This is available as an ebook. It is a second novel written in 2002. Not sure the premise would work today.what with cell phones and social media, it would be pretty hard to hide a wife like Rachel or hide from her. I read this kind of novel for its travel lore and cultural references. Who knew about Angel Delight. Thanks to Jane and Google, I do!
This book was a bit typical in my opinion. I expected it to go the way it did. What I was not expecting was the cut off ending. The story was good the characters well developed but it lacked a bit. Had it not ended when it did I might would have given 5 stars.
it's not bad, although I've read much better books. I had a hard time finishing it as the plot is weak and badly organized, and the author happened to elongate scenes and sentences to the point that it gets boring.

Yes, the book had one clever plot
idea, but, sorry, that won't
carry the ferry across the
bay. The worst book I've read
this year.

The story was probably OK - it was just not my cup of tea. I was hoping for a light hearted romance with a bit of humour ... but instead got a messy affair that was just a tad boring.

I really enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. I really only even opened it to take a look because it somehow found it's way here and I ended up loving it. Fast and easy, chic-lit.
This book was an easy if not somewhat boring read. I think its good for a romance book, which generally are not my favorites to read.
It took me a little while to get into this one. All in all it was ok. Not my favorite RDI book but it was still enjoyable.

Good Book - but you have to be in the mood. Easy read.
