When I was living in England, I bought a gossip magazine that came with a free Cathy Kelly book (Just Between Us). I wasn't expecting much from it, but was pleasantly surprised and became a Cathy Kelly fan. This book is one of her weaker ones, I actually picked it up to re-read because I couldn't remember anything about it. It's entertaining enough, the literary equivalent of potato chips, but if you're looking to read a Cathy Kelly book for the first time, I'd suggest Woman to Woman or Just Bet ...more
I picked this up for a bit of light reading between the volumes of a rather intense Sci-Fi trilogy. However, I only managed a handful of chapters. The writing was ok, the characters were a bit run-of-the-mill but likeable and there was nothing I really hated. I just found that when it came to pick it up again, I couldn't summon the enthusiasm. With so many good books out there I haven't read, I decided to put it aside.
I absolutely loved this one and wasn't ready to give up on the characters story when the book ended. I'd love a sequel! It follows 2 main female characters who want the same editors job on a newspaper. Isabelle and Dee. Isabelle has just split with her husband and Dee is engaged. It follows their new jobs and relationships in the bustle of a busy newspaper setting. I do love losing myself in a Cathy Kelly book.
Opzij is een boek wat heerlijk wegleest. Het is een boek dat je gewoon wilt lezen omdat het zo leuk is om over de wereld van andere personen te lezen. Je leert de mensen kennen, hun meningen en hun doen en laten. Dit zorgt ervoor dat je helemaal in het verhaal zit en je door blijft lezen. Het is een heerlijk boek om tussendoor te lezen. Cathy Kelly vind ik sowieso een fijne schrijfster, ze schrijft gewoon lekker simpel, leuke verhalen maar wel verhalen die smaakvol zijn. Leuk!
In the beginning of this book was a slow read. But the more I read the better it got. This really should have been a series. Some of characters was left hanging. I want to know more or that happy ending. I don't particularly like guessing the test of the story. Reading 567 pages could have been two or three books ending better.
Born in Belfast but raised in Dublin, Cathy initially worked for thirteen years as a newspaper journalist with a national Irish Sunday newspaper, where she worked in news, features, along with spending time as an agony aunt and the paper’s film critic. However, her overwhelming love was always fiction and she published her first international bestseller, Woman To Woman, in 1997. She did not become ...moreMore about Cathy Kelly...
