Juliet works for an advertising company, where she sometimes clashes with the boss, but has some good friends. She has plenty of ideas but is more interested in after-work drinking and smoking; her self-esteem isn't great anyway, and she's still grieving from the loss of her fiance Luke a year previously.

Juliet used to be very close to her older sister Hannah, who is a calmer, more motherly kind of person. But Hannah is now married to the slick Michael whom Juliet doesn't like or trust. Michael

I'll be there for you - such a beautiful and sad novel all at the same time. I loved the characters of Hannah and Juliet and loved their bond even more so.

Throughout the book, both of their relationships with each other was portrayed greatly; best friends and sisters. I love how it showed both the negative and positive sides of their relationship too, it's not always a bed of roses with them, but when one is in need, the other is there for them.

It took me a chapter or two to actually get into t

I have always liked stories that play on the relationship between family members, portraying both the good and the bad times in their lives - such occurs in this book.
Two sisters, close all their lives suddenly find themselves in different places and situations in their lives' death, love, family; they all feature prominently in what unfolds.
I've often heard that your family can help you through anything, that true family will be there for you to lean on no matter what, and through this book, I'
Alright, so I have these books I like to call "My airport books". Airport books, are books that are suppossed to be fun, not too deep, great for the airplane because you can get into them, and not have to think too hard, and long enough for the airplane ride. Well this was a disappointing airport book. I thought this book would exhibit more of a connection between sisters, and the bonds between them. It did none of that. The storyline got more and more ridiculous. It should have been a clue to m ...more

Two and a half stars. I did sort of like it. There was a lot I liked but some bits I really didn't. For instance the character of Guy was an issue for me- nowhere near enough detail on him to appreciate his role in the story. But Michael was well drawn. The big coincidence was - well - big, but since my books have coincidences too,I didn't really feel it was an issue.I could feel the reveal coming but it was done well. Not as good for me as some of her other books but I do like her style of writ ...more
I think what the book is trying to express is really nice and important especially in our now days.
But I have found the technique of writing is really complicated and hard to understand at some parts. And I am half british half american, so my english is -you can say- alright. I want to know if anyone faced this or is it just me.

I love the overall story though.

Thank you
It took a couple of chapters for me to get intot his book but once I did I was hooked.
Although I did pick the ending it was still enjoyable.
I liked the relationship between the sisters. Some times sisters, sometimes good friends - but not always close but there when they need each other.

easy read and enjoyable however what a coincidence that pretty much all main male characters are cheats in this book - Come on not all men are that bad?!!
It was an okay read but could be boring at times. The story didn't move me at all.
Good worth reading but not her best book
