Dune Road takes us in different directions, but not too unexpected. You have some interesting characters like Edie and Robert who have history and intrigue, but the others seem too familiar. The introduction of new friendships is too easy and fast. The job that falls into the protagonist's hands is too easy. The children are stereotypical. Real women aren't as stupid as the protagonist and don't allow sleek newcomers into their lives that easily without checking first. The happily every after ending really was too much closure too soon and tied everything up nicely. Still, it's an easy read that isn't painful.

I had found Jane Green's books, "Beach House" and Second Chance" at least amusing on a summer book level of reading, but "Dune Road" left me feeling like I had wasted my time in a way no book has in a very long time. The author presented us with shallow, weak, brand-worshipping women. I couldn't believe how conniving and dishonest the characters were, only to have their best friends, family members and/or spouses, so very easily forgiven. A best friend of the main charater sets her up with an abusive con man and when she finds out, she's sympathetic towards her?! UGH!! None of the women, with the exception of the only likeable character, the 86 year old neighbor Edie, seems able to survive without a man, and will go to any extreme to hone in on their target as long as he's a handsome meal ticket. (What year is this?!) And the writer repeats herself several times throughout the book, to the point of thinking the reader may be experiencing memory loss. Do yourself a favor and skip this lightweight drain...find something with strong female characters. I'll not read another Jane Green book.

This book was completely predictable and shallow. Towards the end, I felt like I was reading the same thing over and over, but it turned out the author repeated herself in a few chapters. I do not recommend this book at all.

This book might be better stocked in the kiddie department. Once upon a time there was a book with a trite, predictable and sadly unoriginal plot. Kit, supposedly the enlightened woman is a self obsessed, immature and pathetic character. But not to worry - they all live happily ever after.

I continue to read Jane Green’s books, thinking they have to get better. So weird, as feel she always sets up the books for a great novel and likeable characters. However, she continues to talk over and over about feelings from the characters as almost overboard, and then forgets the actual story? There is never much of a story or substance, it is more about what this one thinks and that one with lots of drama. I did like this one better than some of the others as listened to audio as Cassandra Campbell, is easy on the ears and enjoy her performance. All Jane Green’s leave you feeling frustrated with the storylines and unnerving at times. Maybe one day I will run across a real story!

This book was a big yawn. This is the first of Green's books I have read, so i can't compare to her other novels. Ever wish you could get your money back after reading a disappointing book?

Gee, thanks, Barnes & Noble for the 3 PAGE ebook sample. How generous, especially when the ebook is $12.99. Sorry, I don't have enough information to buy this book...but you know that.

I have read some other Jane Green books and this was a disappointment. I don't think her books are great, but they are entertaining. This one I seriously considered not finishing. It was predicatable, the characters were not very three-dimensional. The story was set in Connecticut but I kept thinking this book had been written for a British audience or adapted from another story because who in CT fills their car with "petrol" or parks it in a "car park"? And American Santas don't wear "cotton wool" beards. Who edited this book and didn't pick up on that? Skip this one.
