“A dream come true” is a novel by Maureen Lee who often tends to portray strong-willed women characters. In the book, the protagonist ,tired of her once happy marriage , gets an opportunity from her life to let her dream come true. Though the story is well written, but the author has added predictable elements that rather makes it boring.

Good short story

I usually only read books with 300+ pages as I like to have a good long read. I hand to say though I did enjoy reading a shorter story for a change. Good story, a few surprises but a happy ending for the main character.

Predictable but worth a read

This is a very pleasant story which is worth reading as a short diversion. It is almost entirely predictable. Maggie, who is bored by her marriage, beds a colleague at a sales conference in Brighton. Her lover is also married and lives within driving distance of Maggie's home. You could almost make up the rest of the story for yourselves, but Maureen Lee has injected some humour and a few small surprises, so don't pass this book by. Pick it up. It'll keep you amused f

When I started this book, I didn't realize that it was intended for new readers. I thought that it was to be more like a short story you'd find in an anthology. But, it is not a very good one. It is VERY simplistic, and overly sappy, not to mention unbelievable. Just because it's short, it doesn't mean it has to be dumb. It's like the author tried to take a story idea that would usually take 300 pages to unfold, and cram it into a 100 page book (with a huge typeface at that!).[return[returnIf yo ...more

История о женщине, чья мечта сбылась... Вот и все,что можно сказать об этой книге.
Кроме легкого слога ловить тут нечего, честно говоря. Хотя концовка не совсем такая, какую я ожидала, но все честно и открыто.
Не стану рекомендовать эту книгу всем подряд, только людям,изучающим английский язык. Благодаря ее небольшому объему, ее удобно брать с собой в путешествия. А вообще история на один раз, перечитывать не буду.
Оценка 3 из 5.

Another Quick Read book. This one is about a woman in her forties who has a short affair when she goes away on a work conference as her life is so humdrum. Her husband has ignored her for years, they sleep in separate rooms .... She begins to think about what she actually wants from life and decides to finally stay living HER life.

I didn't expect much from the story so I wasn't disappointed. This kind of story I find rather boring but nevertheless, enough for a 2hours-entertainment.
