The Trouble With Marriage is more Joanna Trollope than Sophie Kinsella, but there is nothing wrong with that.

This book was okay as a beach read, but ultimately I found it to be a bit depressing, with some characters doing some pretty unfortunate things and really being let off scot-free. Can't say as I particularly recommend it...

I think this was the book I liked best of the three that I read by Holt
