Lola Rose Lambert is a police constable in Leeds. She's stuck doing little things when she wants to work in CID.

This book worked out way too neatly. Girls mother dies and the man she thought was her father her whole life turns out not to be. Turns out, it’s some aging Ozzy Osbourne-type. One of his ex-wives, who is now his manager (think Sharooon!) meets the Girl and makes her his tour manager (what?). Touring happens. One of the tech guys is Ozzy’s son from another relationship, so that makes him Girl’s brother and he hates her from the start. In fact, he hates his father as well, because he left him and ...more

This is NOT a cook book. The author is a very different Donna Hay. The book is fun, and focuses on Lola Rose a rather sad young woman who had a difficult childhood, which isn't transferring to a much easier adulthood. Lola's lack of parental love and deep loneliness colours all her decisions and the consequences from those decisions.

I was really expecting to enjoy this based on the blurb for the story, but it was really disappointing. The characters didn't feel real to me, the narration skipped all over the place, making it hard to relate to anyone's point of view.

A very light and predictable read, but enjoyable. Which is why I got it. There are so many things that are cliche and wrong about the "plot" that it's not worth it to go into, and it would totally unjustify the time I spent reading it, so let's just leave it alone, OK?

A lightweight story with some funny moments. I find it hard to take a policewoman called Lola seriously.

Fairly predictable, but a good read for moments when anything heavy would be pointless.

It was alright. There were some parts I liked pretty well and there were others that were so-so, like some of the "twists" in the plot. But it was an enjoyable read, nonetheless.

I loved this book. Although I have to say it was a little predictable and everything worked out far too peachy in the end... a bit too happily ever after!
