I don t usually read romance, but I was having a bad day and a friend twisted my arm into buying this one I m so glad she made me do it White Lies Custard Creams left me with a smile on my face and I even thought, aaaaahhhhhh at the end The only trouble is, that I want a
This story was not what I was expecting at all, but it was very good I really enjoyed all the twists and turns and did not expect the things that happened to happen, can t say much as it would give the story away The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was because I don t think
This was a great read I couldn t put it down It was refreshing, funny, quirky, and inventive I love Susan s style and can t wait to read her next great adventure, which will no doubt be filled with true to life characters and their zany pets. I loved this book, to describe it as just chick lit is a doing it a disservice, it s chick lit, romance,comedy,thriller and spy novel all in one entertaining package I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good read with a bit bite than your normal romance novel. I enjoyed this light read Good old fashioned farce in a good way and the part where Moocher the dog is bathed made me laugh out loud I got a bit confused with the characters as it moves at quite a pace Jolly good fun This took a little while for me to get into it, and even though I made it to the end I didn t find that I could get the characters. Quirky, humorous and fun, this is a great read that made me laugh out loud. A farce of a story Ok if you like farces, I don t It was good in the end a few twists still worth a read though I picked this book up when it was on special offer because I liked Susan Alison s cards that she does for the RNA conference each year and was curious about her books.I loved it I m struggling to think of how to describe it The words madcap and caper spring to mind I laughed so much I managed to snort by breakfast as one point.The plot was convoluted and the twists were completely unexpected Most of the time I had no idea what was going on, but then Liz, the protagonist was just as confused, so that was okay I loved the way all of Liz s friends, neighbours and lodgers all viewed the world through their own crazy tinted glasses.It s not meant to be a deep and meaningful sexually charged read It s meant to be light and funny and a delightful escape from everyday life A bit like The Ladyki
