Great book. Extremely funny. I really like this author - she also wrote Asking for Trouble (this was made into a movie: the Wedding Date, which while it was a good movie was not anything like the book).

This may be my favorite one of hers, perhaps because I love dogs so much.

This book was a wonderful light read. Elizabeth Young is (in my opinion) one of the best chick-lit writers around. This is a fast paced and fun read full of laughter, a few times where I thought about crying (it takes a lot for me) and some great drama.

Great read, I very much enjoyed it! Will search for more by this author, as I like reading the humorous sort of books taking place across the pond, so to speak!

This might be fun if you can keep up with a minimum of two names each for the eleven characters for the murder weekend, plus a few characters that aren't there. I couldn't. I made it about a third of the way through the book and gave up. In addition, the dialogue is heavily sprinkled with British slang, so good luck knowing what anyone is saying. An example:

"Tosser," he said. "Sorry I'm not there to duff him up."

A cute book. It reminded me of something along the lines of Bridget Jones's Diary

Oh, I just loved this fun chick lit novel! At first, it was a little "too English", but as soon as it got going, I started to really like it. It had some hilarious parts - like the way the main couple first met as children and it even had parts where I cried (partly because I was home alone with Buns and it involved a missing dog). All in all, it was great fun and a fast and enjoyable read. I will definitely add her to my list of authors to look out for!

You've got to get the Brit humor and lingo to enjoy this one. Characters are pretty well thought out and all in all a good read

I really didn't like this book. I couldn't get past chapter 3 and that is extremely unusual for me, a person who loves chick lit.

Dogs Are Better Than Men
They never brag about their ex's stunning cleavage.
They don't moan or sulk if you're a half-hour late.
They never tell you a Brazilian would really turn them on.
After her most recent disaster with the King of the Unrepentant Jerks, Isabel "Izzy" Palmer is finally convinced that the only male she truly needs in her life is Henry, her lovable part wolfhound, part who-knows-what. Henry's faithful, he adores her madly, and he's great fun to sleep with. So who needs the additional heartache?

But even armed with powerful knowledge and a new resolve, Izzy starts to feel that familiar itch ... and it's all because of Nick. He's a vet for goodness sake -- confident, handsome and compassionate -- if a bit rough around the edges. After teasing her about Henry's unusual looks and questioning her most recent choice in men, Nick then has the gall to turn halfway charming. But he doesn't stop at halfway, and though she already has a best friend, Izzy realizes it doesn't preclude her from having a perfect match, too.
