    Huge Disappointment

    I've read Jennifer's other books and thoroughly enjoyed them but the characters in this book left so much to be desired that I was actually angry that I had spent the time reading the book. The character Maggie is so devoid of common morality that it was impossible to have any connection with her. The fact that she has a learning disability which made her feel stupid her entire life is no excuse to steal, cheat and sleep with her sister's boyfriend - all with little or no remorse. Even by the end of the book she never really 'gets it' and never takes accountability for what a horrible person she has been. In her mind (and presumably the author's since it is never resolved and the character barely shows remorse) all that behavior was ok because she was really misunderstood. If I was someone with a learning disability I would be truly insulted by how such a life challenge is portrayed. If you would like to read a book where the characters really do 'speak' to the readers I would suggest 'My Sunshine' by Catherine Anderson. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Jennifer's next book has better developed characters.

    blah

    The first part is full of details, every little look every little thought, as it continues big events occur but there is no build. It was a very easy read but once it was over there was no second thought, i wouldn't read another one by this author.

    Disappointing compared to Good in Bed

    I found Good in Bed hilarious and witty and cute. In Her Shoes was more whiny and not quite as entertaining. I was interested enough to read the entire book, but I found it a chore to do so at many points.

    Same Story Line

    Although Good in Bed and In Her Shoes are great books if read at separate times, you can't help but notice that the main characters: Cannie Shaprio and Rose Feller from the repsective books, are exactly the same character with the same issues about family, weight, employment.... Reading the books back to back is like a case of Deja Vu.
