When I was living in England, I bought a gossip magazine that came with a free Cathy Kelly book (Just Between Us). I wasn't expecting much from it, but was pleasantly surprised and became a Cathy Kelly fan. This book is one of her weaker ones, I actually picked it up to re-read because I couldn't remember anything about it. It's entertaining enough, the literary equivalent of potato chips, but if you're looking to read a Cathy Kelly book for the first time, I'd suggest Woman to Woman or Just Bet ...more

This was a very long book and it held my interest for most of the time. I agree with another reviewer who said that there was too much emphasis on the fashionable clothes the women wore. I think it would have been better to have ended the book sooner as the things that happened to both heroines in the last 200 pages were quite unbelievable and bordered on the ridiculous! I will not give away anything in case someone else chooses to read the book. I see it was one of Cathy Kelly's earlier books a ...more

I like Cathy Kelly books a lot, but they are kind of hard to find. so I was excited to find 2 at a used bookstore. I read this one quickly, even though it was long, because the story was really entertaining (and I was stuck in an airport for 3 hours, ha ha). I really liked Dee and was so worried that she would take Gary back. I was so proud of her for sticking to her guns and finally finding her own self and buying her house, working on losing weight, and just having fun and finally finding a bo ...more

A fairly chilled-out read that didn't require much mental work. It was consistently fixated on the wardrobes of its protagonists (love the trouser suits of the 90s era!), their love-lives (or lack thereof) and an over-kill emphasis on body size/shape/weight issues etc

I picked this up for a bit of light reading between the volumes of a rather intense Sci-Fi trilogy. However, I only managed a handful of chapters. The writing was ok, the characters were a bit run-of-the-mill but likeable and there was nothing I really hated. I just found that when it came to pick it up again, I couldn't summon the enthusiasm. With so many good books out there I haven't read, I decided to put it aside.

I absolutely loved this one and wasn't ready to give up on the characters story when the book ended. I'd love a sequel! It follows 2 main female characters who want the same editors job on a newspaper. Isabelle and Dee. Isabelle has just split with her husband and Dee is engaged. It follows their new jobs and relationships in the bustle of a busy newspaper setting. I do love losing myself in a Cathy Kelly book.

Opzij is een boek wat heerlijk wegleest. Het is een boek dat je gewoon wilt lezen omdat het zo leuk is om over de wereld van andere personen te lezen. Je leert de mensen kennen, hun meningen en hun doen en laten. Dit zorgt ervoor dat je helemaal in het verhaal zit en je door blijft lezen. Het is een heerlijk boek om tussendoor te lezen. Cathy Kelly vind ik sowieso een fijne schrijfster, ze schrijft gewoon lekker simpel, leuke verhalen maar wel verhalen die smaakvol zijn. Leuk!

In the beginning of this book was a slow read. But the more I read the better it got. This really should have been a series. Some of characters was left hanging. I want to know more or that happy ending. I don't particularly like guessing the test of the story. Reading 567 pages could have been two or three books ending better.

Cathy Kelly writes some really good books. But for some reason I couldn't get into this one and only lasted until page 55. Nothing to do with the quality of the writing at all. Just wasn't really for me.

Quick reading chick -lit. Kept expecting a bit more drama, but it was a pleasant read. Ideal beach book.

Too long. Story wasn't that complicated that it needed to be that long
My first cathy Kelly novel I have read really enjoyed it an easy read.

Licht entertainmeny wel :)

Love this Irish author's books. She has a great sense of humor and her characters are colorful and real. Have read all her books and am now waiting for a new one to come out.

Fun read. Expected a "war" between Isabel and Dee, but the story took a different turn. Great book for the beach.

Een iets te voorspelbaar vrouwenboek/chicklit. Maar fijne lectuur voor een luie (nieuwjaars)dag.

Entertaining and predictable. Chit.lit but nicely written. A good easy read when you need a break from more intense reading.
Not sure when I read this guessing 2013.
