NZ/UK chic lit. The author appears to bear a strikingly resemblance to the main character, Cal, in that they are both solo motrhers with 1 daughter who come to NZ from the UK, which was abit disturbing. Loads of naval gazing by Cal which is tiresome but if you skip all those bits and read it as a fantasy (no solo mothers I know have the pulling power she has) then its a quite good quick read. Not nearly as good as Michelle Holman's Bonkers.

An intriguing story of a girl in search of her father, and maybe getting her mother and father back together. But not this is not the normal "parent trap" idea.

Two Miss Parsons with two dreams and both of them unknown yet full of surprises in the search. I felt the language was unnecessary (F word) and didn't add to the read but took awa ...more
