To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was a decent, easy-read story of people finding each other; relationships forming, breaking, getting rearranged etc. However, the writing style was irritating. The characters were interchangeable and all dialogue was samey. I lost count of how often a 'witty' sally was explained as such, or a character's ability to be funny was over-stated. The writer made sure to show off a considerable vocabulary of alternative words for 'said' when working through each leaden exchange, giving the impression that the reader needs a signpost in order to recognise humour. It was all rather patronising and clunky. I won't be reading anything else by this author.
I did actually read the whole book as I had bought it and wanted my money's worth while on holiday. It was very unbelievable, the characters were so stereotypical and I found the author took on more than she could chew with relating to characteristics and traits of different age groups. I doubt much research was carried out on issues like adoption, ivf , menopause, I could go on but I'll leave it there. I cringe when I think back. But hey, a cheesy, happy-go-lucky read with a big happy ending!
