If you like Jane Green's style, you will like this. You will also be infuriated at the workings of the main character's in-laws and their family! Entertaining read.

A fun easy read about the complex relationship with in-laws. I have always enjoyed Jane Green's books and anxiously await the next one.

Very fun, compelling British chick lit. As soon as Dan proposes, Ellie discovers more and more how close-knit his family is. At first she loves it, then it begins to work against her as she and Dan start a family and his mother becomes far too involved. Lots of humor but plenty of heart-rending struggles, too -- like real life.

...okay. To all those Jane Green fans out there. I promise that I'll give her another shot. This book was good but it wasn't great. I had a hard time getting through it actually. I know a lot of Jane Green fans that would smack me right now but maybe I just picked the wrong book. I'm going to try another one and get back to ya!

Ellie starts out in her relationship with Linda Cooper as friends, and is so excited that she is finally having a mother figure in her life. However, the more she gets to know Linda, the worse things get. Linda is a very controlling woman, and this becomes very apparent during the wedding preparations. And if that wasn't bad enough, things get worse when Ellie becomes pregnant with her first child. Ellie feels that if only Dan supported her, she could deal with his mother, but Dan in fact thinks that Ellie is being childish and is overreacting.

While the book starts off on a very humorous note, as things get worse for Ellie and Dan, the tone turns quite different. Ellie and Dan's marriage is now on the rocks and it doesn't look like anything can save their marriage.

I really loved this book, as I have with most of the books by Jane Green. With the exception of BOOKENDS, I think Jane Green's novels are worth reading and will make fan out of anyone.
