A story about a strong friendship and the ups and downs of life, love, and health. I enjoyed the novel very much.

This was a cute book. My favorite part was the well developed characters and of course, the bookstore! Who wouldn't want to open a bookstore.

This was my first book by this author. I have since read several more. She is very witty and the British tone is hilarious.

Yet another wonderful Jane Green book! If you have ever read any of her books you will not be disappointed with this one. If you haven't read her before then what are you waiting for?? LOL

I started this book thinking it would be some nice fluff. It definitely lived up to that. It was a light, quick read, but it was also really well done and a fabulous story. Oh, it was a little trite in places, but ya know... it's what I wanted to read when I wanted to read it. It was a cute book, but had a few deeper issues that were interesting, nothing ultra heavy, but very well done. Would be the perfect book to bring along to the beach or on an airplane.

Wow, another great book from Jane Green, but with a little more depth in it than some of her others. This was a very quick read for me as hers normally are.

I enjoyed this Jane Green book, but was not light and cheery as I was expecting after Mr. Maybe and Jemima J.

it was ok. entertaining in some parts; too much useless detail in some other parts.

I am on a chick-lit kick and Jane Green writes some of the best of the genre out there. She writes characters I can relate too, and adds lots of real emotion and an exciting plot into the mix. I highly recommend this book.
