MY REVIEW - This book was a cute, sweet read. This story does not put you on the edge of your seat but it does entertain! There were really three story lines going on that intertwined with characters that are all friends. Mansell put together a great cast of characters. I pretty much liked everybody. I didn't really like Jack at first, I thought he was kind of a player but he came through in the end and I ended up liking him. My favorite was Lou (Louisa) she was a sweet, bright and very put together young teen. I could have read a whole book just about her!
There were only two things I didn't really care for - It was long (409 pages) I feel like it could have been shorter, it read long to me. Also, I continue to say this and I will still say it again - I really do not care for British Lit. even Brit. Chick-Lit, which is what this is. Even though I liked the story, I did not like the language. There were far too many "Right", "Bloody hell", and "Bugger"s for my liking, LOL. There were times I wasn't even sure I knew what they were talking about. They sometimes have totally different names for things. I wish I had an British to American dictionary.
A big plus for this book is the cover! I know, I know, what - a cover? I am a huge fan of covers! And this one is gorgeous! The picture does not do it justice. It has beautiful spring colors and all the butterflies are metallic so they shine! Pretty!
If you ARE a lover of British Chick-Lit you will probably love that I am giving my copy away!
