I read this book fairly quickly as it's a light and fun read but only that. I never really felt I got to know the characters or really care for them too much either.

Lissa Evans can write well so I persevered.

Light and easy but not much substance and not as funny as it claims to be.
I bought this before my trip bc it was set in London but it wasn't that great so I didn't bring it along.
It ended better than it started but it just didn't make me laugh like is suggested it would (and British fiction often does). It was about people's lives, the bad, more bad and some good.
