Read in June, 2005

“‘I thought I’d take him home. Pour him a glass of malt and give him the best blow-job of his life. Remind him of how good he had things. But, ‘A blow-hob won’t fix everything, Lorraine,” he says. “You think it will. But not this time.” So…’ She flicked as into the plant pot, ‘… there you go. A blow-job doesn’t fix everything. And here’s me thinking it did. More fool me.’”

‘Was that it? Where was all the steamy talk of love and death? The bawdy exchanges? Megs couldn’t remember when she’d last been so disappointed. This’ll do for conversation. This’ll do for a cake. This’ll do for life. She left her tea and good and never went back. She walked, hunched against the rain, back to her car, trying not to think that she was the same as the fat-kneed Blue Kettle ladies. She lived a this’ll-do life.’

Good book. Likeable characters. Sweet and entertaining. About appreciating who you are and what you have.
