Synopsis – Jackie Ball knows that happiness is hard to find, so when Dan Lewis jogs into her life with his skin-tight shorts and sexy smile things start to look up. One night he presents Jackie with a diamond ring and suggests he trade in his BMW for a people carrier. But there’s a fly in the ointment – her first husband Henry. As far as Jackie’s concerned, their marriage is well and truly over, so she engages the services of a solicitor and sets about moving on.
But Henry has some old scores to settle and the divorce papers hitting the dog-haired mat are just the excuse he needs. It’s not that he still loves her, but Jackie walked out on him without even leaving a note and now he wants to know why…
My Thoughts – This is the second Clare Dowling book that i have read and i have to say i enjoyed this one a lot more than the first (Going it alone) The plot centres on Jackie who is trying to divorce her first husband to marry her second. The plot is fairly obvious to what will happen, but as a chick lit book that is what you would expect. Their was a secondary plot with Jackies family that i didnt think really needed to be in their, but the rest of the book was good, Once i picked it up it was quite difficult to put down, i was in the need for an easy book to read that didnt require to much thinking and that was what a got. A light read, a good chick lit book, not one that i would read again, but good at the time.
Rating – 3.5/5
