The perfect summer read. Full of characters you love and hate. Wndy Holden writes in a way that you imagine the surroundings and characters without realizing it, it is as if a movie is playing in your head...

Not really chick-lit but young married lit - quite entertaining. Two couples in Bath encounter one another in birthing class - but the wives were enemies earlier in New York. The husbands could not be more different, either - one a real estate agent, formerly a London high flyer; the other a commando recycler who frequents dumps and reuses condoms. (Birthing class, remember?) The story follows the two families in the early months of child-rearing, when their paths cross in totally unexpected ways.

Quite readable.

A fast paced lose yourself in the story romp. I really found myself rooting for the characters. Definitely an enjoyable read!

Slow start, but once I got into it, I stayed up reading it until the wee hours. Different premise for a chick lit book. Pretty good!
