You know what? I expected to read this book and think, urgh there's another chick-lit same-old same-old. I'm not the biggest fan of chick-lit but I can happily flit into the genre when I fancy something light-hearted.
I didn't find this predictable, though, which is my usual qualm with chick-lit.

Lola is easily the funniest and most engaging of the characters; I found myself looking forward to her bits the most. Grace is sarcastic, witty, and the woman that binds all the plots together.
Marnie is the sympathy character: that said, I found the way her little weakness was portrayed as brutally honest, showing the selfishness and impulsivity that is typical of her little problem. (Don't want to spoil it)
I LOVED the Friday night club at Lola's, and LOVED the way how it kept you on your toes: both the men I thought were the abusers weren't.
Absolutely brilliant. I didn't want it to end and I think I'll be reading some more from Keyes!
