    The reason I like Jane Green's novels is that they deal with issues that are realistic and that any woman may face at some point in her life. While the main plot line was outside of the norm in that it doesn't happen very often, it wasn't that bad...it was the plot contrivances that led to the revelation of the secret that were just silly. Disappointing...the quality of her novels has definitely gone down over the last few books.

    I typically enjoy books by Jane Green and was excited when this one was released. However, I was very disappointed. The plot of the book jumped all over the place and was very contrived. Characters were not well developed with a few characters appearing seemingly randomly with no real purpose to the story.

    Not as I expected

    After getting into "brit chick lit", I came across Jane Green, hoping to find a similar genre. I was very off! I would probably compare Green to Jodi Picoult. This book is NOT in any way cute, uplifting or very good. It was mostly depressing w/ way too many unimportant details. I found the whole story to be too much of a downer to enjoy it, the characters were so sad!

    Not great for Green. Too much idle gossip and predictability. Also, it's unrealistic and the characters lack depth and are unlikable. Many random elements in the story and there are no unique elements. It was difficult to push myself through the first 3/4 of the novel. I was disappointed because I think Green's readers are more intelligent than this novel suggests.
