My rating: (3 / 5)
Fun, entertaining chick-lit romp which sometimes deviates into corniness, but has such endearing characters that you can forgive the lapses.
Rosie is married to a man who hates her. She’s put on weight while ignoring his affairs and negligence of the relationship, and has poured herself into her sucessful business. Her best friend tried to warn her before the wedding, and when Rosie wouldn’t listen, she left for Europe. Her loyal housekeeper tried to tell her, but she dismissed it. Now, she’s having to face the realities of her life, and it isn’t pretty… but with some work, it could be.
Best friend Vickie has returned from Europe, her new personal trainer is hot, her business is picking up massively and it’s beyond fun for her to watch her exhusband struggling without her cash to buoy his extravagent lifestyle. To top it off, she wins the lotto’s 300 million + jackpot. But if she turns in the ticket, she’ll have to split it with her ex, which makes for a difficult series of choices to face.
Overall, this is a sweet, feel-good book. It isn’t earth-shattering by any means, but it’s a great way to while away a few autumn afternoons.
