Praise for the author: ‘Delicious, delightful, and warm, Lucy Diamond never fails to make you laugh out loud and cheer for her colourful cast of characters.’ (Rowan Coleman)
‘Charming, funny and as satisfying as a giant tiramisu. Loved it.’ (Milly Johnson)
I couldn't finish listening to it. It was all about a woman's misery and things that kept going wrong with her life and everyone elses. A depressing book. The narrator was quite good.
"Excellent listen - feel good"
Great book - nothing less than expected from this author , was not disappointed in the slightest. Bring on the next one .
This is a pleasant enough novel. It didn't really go anywhere though and was predictable. In the last few chapters, I was just wanting to get to the end, so I could move on to the next book, rather than care about what happened (never a good thing). I suppose that was due to it being a bit bland by then. Its worth noting that if I don't enjoy a book, I usually just discard it and move on. I didn't in this case because the characters were pleasent enough and I expected more to happen.
"A Great Listen"
Yet another delightful book by Lucy. She has this fantastic ability of seamlessly entwining her characters lives together without you really noticing. I wasn't sure about the narrator at the beginning but I quickly decided that she brought the book to life gently and effortlessly. Being laid up with a bad back I found the narration rather soothing and the story line, whilst a little predictable in places, was still a great listen. As I expected fabulous characters brought to life by Lucy, I can visualise them all! If your looking for a way to chillax and unwind I would certainly recommend finding a comfy chair, putting in your earphones, closing your eyes and then just listen. Perfect 😃
If you like books that end with "The love of my life", this is for you. A classic chick lit and a great entertaining read for the summer. Not too much romance and a great deal of entrepreneurship. Throw in some fashion, a celebrity, a husband and an ex and it's a perfect mix. Will never read fortune cookies the same way again.
"Good story - engaging central characters"
Yes, I would listen to this story again, I got to know the characters and I enjoyed the twists and turns in their lives - they were believable.
I enjoyed the times when the girls were working together
I was moved when Spencer become ill
Well worth a read/listen
Loved this book. This is the first Lucy Diamond book I have read or listened to and I will now be listening to many more!
This was such a lovely book, had me hooked from the beginning, it had me laughing and crying, just amazing
"Fantastic feel good book"
Well narrated, believable characters and story . Didn't want it to end . Highly recommend.
"Heartwarming and Enjoyable"
I really enjoyed this, storyline was lovely and narration was great.
It was a nice easy listen that I know I will listen to again.
I like Lucy diamond as an author but I am struggling to finish this book due to the terrible narration. Her intonation is all wrong , her voice is dull and I find my concentration drifting
