I am so dissapointed. I)'M giving this book 1,5 stars. This half is for the writing itself, it was good, I can't say a bad word about it, it was compact and logical, but that's all. For me there must be a plot, and there wasn't any.
It's the first book since a very long time that I didn't enjoy reading and that I skipped a lot of (even the whole chapters). It was just boring, from the very start. I have read the same bits of the book and didn't realise that I'd read them already.

Read as part of the 2015 Reading Challenge - A book you own but have never read.

This has been sat on my bookshelf for a couple of years and seemed like the perfect holiday read. Lighthearted and funny,great for poolside reading!

Read on one sunny day when I had a random day off.
Very silly: exactly what I expected. Lots of little stories joined together through the device of having all the characters at the same place at the same time, some barely interacting with each other, others doing so in more complicated ways. Most of it rather obvious and I found it hard to like any of the characters much, certainly the female ones. The absent Euan and the may-as-well-have-been Marcus were more sympathetic but one-dimensional, bu

At the best I would recommend this for light summer reading. It has moments of giddy romance and a lot of fun, but overall I found the different story lines and drama to be pretty bland. It just didn't seem to wrap up well in the end either.

I like this book...for very personal reason. I'm in need of vacation, and looking for a trip and holiday theme book... In the end it becomes a pretty nice readings.

The main-theme story is about friendship between three different girls, their relationship with each other, and their own problems. One of them is getting married, and being happy almost in every pages of the book. The other is a divorcee who seems hopeless and looking for another guy to be in love with. The last one is a girl who (we

How I Came To Read This Book: I got it for free with a British magazine.

The Plot: Rachel is celebrating her pending nuptials with a 'hen week' (bachelorette party to you and me) in Turkey I believe, along with her two BFF's. Of course, things aren't exactly smooth sailing while on holidays. Rachel spends most of the trip avoiding confrontation, including with her future mother-in-law. Yaslyn is young and beautiful, and afraid of commitment - but by the end of the trip she learns she may not have

I love it when I find a new author! Manby is so it for me. Every time I see her books in the library, I grab them now. This book is mainly 3 different stories intertwined in each other. They all take place at a resort in Turkey over the span of a week. The first is a group of girls who are on their hen week for one of them. One of the girls in the group has been with her boyfriend for a long time and the third is newly divorced. The second group is a couple who is on the verge of divorce. The wo ...more

I would generally say it isn't a good thing when you read at least a chapter into a book before you realise that you have already read it. However, I guess when it's a chick-lit beach read you have to appreciate more the re-readability of a novel. If I was home with unlimited books I probably would have stopped at that point, but as I was on holiday with only four books (for five days away and averaging at least a book a day...), then I didn't have much choice.

Всеки чиклит заслужава 2 звезди.:)Не повече,но понякога по-малко. Не съм враг на жанра.Това е иделно забавно четиво за плаж или на път.Нещо като дамските списания,но без реклами.

Predictable, trite, dull even. No part of the book felt credible. Really not my cup of tea.

how I got to read it: came free with a magazine
I actually got this in the summer during my summer vacation in Italy. So I read it while lounging by the pool and it fit perfectly! Not a heavy read at all, very light, somewhat witty, exactly what I needed for the sunny days. I wouldn't give it 5 stars though, as it is quite predictable and did not really hook me up, but nevertheless - I would suggest it if you'd like a carefree book, that's not too deep.

Fun, light read. Very predictable. Good read for someone who just finished a long, intense book.

What a crappy book! It sounded like a fun read. I didn't care about any of the characters - they were either whiny or pathetic. The things that happened were dumb. Don't waste your money or your time on this one.

I found this book a bit predictable. I guessed the storyline with yaslyn about half way thru. I didn't really warm to any of the characters and thought the ending was a bit disappointing. I expected more from the ending really. It was an ok read, passed a few boring lunch hours at work!

I didn't like this book at all. It's about people from England going to Turkey for a club type vacation. The characters are very strange and the storyline while interesting lacks something.

Cute chic-flicky which was what I wanted. Thankfully not too completely predictable; a few nice twists but definitely the kind of book one should take on vacation to the beach with the girls.
