Sorry to say it's anything but exciting. The first ever Marian Keyes book that did nothing for me :-(

I actually gave up for now! I don't understand - she's usually so wonderful. Helen was just wrong somehow :(

Gave up too! Just had no story line.

That's so heartbreaking Gemma. I don't understand why this one isn't so great.

I have never read this authors books before, do you miss out on a lot if u don't read all the other Walsh books?

I am so sorry I never noticed this comment before!
You've probably already made a decision by now, but I would say just go for it. Marian Keyes does a fantastic job making her books "standalone" reads. They may make reference to past events, but it won't be much.

Hmmm, glad to see I am not the only one that have given up. I haven't read all of the "Walsh's" but I am getting there. This is the first one that has disappointed me somehow. Sure, I have had a few laughs here and there, but it's not like Keyes...
