This book was a decent book; however, it took a little bit to get used to the way the author writes. I like that Kate finally started to stick up for herself...even though it made others angry.

British chick lit - I enjoyed this but it was overly long and Katie's mother was so annoying. But I liked Katie and was glad to see her stick up for herself after long struggles with first her mother, then her husband.

Loved this story. Excellent narration by Kate Reading, her talent for giving each character a unique sound is wonderful.
