Mansfield Lark, Katie Oliver Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews I really expected to like this book, it sounded a lot like Katie Fforde's writing, and I’ve several of those. Sadly though it just didn't work for me :-( Writing was fine, its just the way the story played out and the characters that felt wrong to me. Its perfectly well written and I’m sure there are loads of 4 and 5 star reviews. As ever we all like different things though thankfully, and that’s what gives us such a wide range of choices in novels. For me I just found the number of characters confusing – I had to keep going back to see who was with who, how they connected and what part of the story they belonged in. Then I need to feel a kind of empathy with the main characters, so I’m happy or sad for them, and for some reason I just didn't really care about these two at all. There were what ought to have been some funny moments and lots of characters that could have been interesting, but it all seemed just too clichéd to me....just me maybe, perhaps as its been some time since I’ve read one like this my tastes have changed? Who knows, books that appeal at certain times in our lives can be ones that don't work at others. I used to be a real thriller addict, Dan Brown, James Patterson Dick Francis, and yet now these leave me cold so maybe that’s my problem with this book. So sadly a bad choice on my part, the novel is fine, just not to my taste. I think its a style you either love or don't, its very distinct and I’m sure appeals to those who love light, comedic romance. Stars: two, sad as it's hard work writing and I hate to put anyone down but this just didn't cut it for me. ARC supplied via Netgalley
