    BAD heir day indeed

    This was a very disappointing novel from Holden. I've read her other novel, Simply Divine, and it really was wonderful. The plot was suspenseful, the protagonist loveable, and the overall execution of the story wonderful. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE for Bad Heir Day. The novel's main character was so unlikeable and weak--even I couldn't muster the enthusiasm to cheer her on. In fact, the minor characters of the book seem to have more brains and personality than the heroine of the story, Anna. Anna is dull, dim, and lost. The plot and final conclusion of the book were so unbelievable, poorly developed, and just really random. I was lost for most of the book and couldn't realy concentrate. By the end of the book, I still couldn't identify when the climax of the plot took place. This book is really not worth your time but don't give up on Wendy Holden, her other novel, Simply Divine, is an absolute MUST read and I assure readers will really love it!

    so bad it made me angry

    it's like a bad copy of the bridget jones diary combined with the nanny diaries, just worse. inane, no likable characters and no purpose, not even a little bit amusing. the main character is pathetic and seems to accept anything for housing. i flipped through the 3/4 of the book and still found it to be annoying. the editor that ok'd this book should be slapped in the face, several times.
