A huge letdown!

Was this even written by Marian Keyes?! The whole book felt very American and fake - like it was ghostwritten. After having just finished 'Rachel's Holiday' by the same author, this book was extremely disappointing. And what's with the usage of "mom" all through the book, (with a few "mums" thrown in for good measure). The author is IRISH!! A lot of the dialogue sounds American. The attempts to sound Irish seem unnatural. None of the characters were all that loveable and the story wasn't engaging. I loved her other books so much that I let waiting for this to get better. Again, a total disappointment.

The Woman Who Stole My Life

This is the first Marian Keyes book I have read and I absolutely loved it. Now missing Stella Sweeney, so I'm going to move onto the Walsh family series to console myself. :)
