I really enjoyed this book. What a lot of fun. As the main character gets her life together, I kept thinking to myself "Lesley Crewe is turning this Toronto gal into a Maritimer..." and sure enough, about 40 pages from the end, Chloe utters the phrase "God love her." And I thought to myself: transformation complete.

Chloe is a bit quirky but why wouldn’t she be? Life events have affected her, a grandfather and Aunt that are like our own relatives, more than we care to admit. We all have a little Chloe in us, unsure of ourselves, keeping busy so as not to have to face the inevitable and a desire to just do good and help others. For anyone who finds the story a little unbelievable, isn’t that why we read fiction?

I'm on a bit of a Lesley Crewe marathon, having only recently discovered her writing. I picked this up from the library Saturday, started reading it yesterday, and finished the final two chapters this morning. When I read the back to find it was about the producer of Bachelor-like reality show, I was a bit disappointed as reality shows don't rock my boat even a little. However I really liked her previous books that I'd read, so I dug in. I was ever so pleasantly surprised. I could hardly put the ...more

Chloe is the most annoying person ever. I didn't even come close to liking her until she adopted the dog, then of course she goes over the top and adopts two more dogs and a parrot. Sorry if this is a spoiler.

She goes over the top about everything, whether it's eating, not eating, working, not working, living in a dump for twenty years, or going all gung-ho to decorate like her life depended on it.

She makes me tired.

This book is a delightful juxtaposition of Kristan Higgins and Sophie Kinsella. The first half of the book went off with a bang; however, I felt the author just drew the story out too long in the second half. I felt myself saying enough already.
Overall, a good read!

Actually - I would give it 3.5 stars.

The initial plot line was a bit too much for me. I'm not a reality TV person, and have watched 2 episode of the bachelor (maybe), therefore I had many *sighs* in the beginning. However, I loved relative happiness and looked at the comedy aspect in this novel. I was pleased when the plot turned towards some more serious topics and I found the book hard to put down (although vacation helps). it was predictable in many parts, yet contained a few surprises.

I don't like reality shows so that aspect of the book didn't appeal to me that much. Also the character of Chloe Sparrow was a bit much and I found her irritating and wondered why a great guy like Austin would put up with her as she was insufferable. I liked the humour at first and her relatives were funny but then it became a bit like a farce but with a heavy depressing tone of her depression over her parents' death weighing things down. I liked her other books better than this one.

First half was quite funny, then it bogged down until a resolved but pretty unbelievable ending.
