This book had a great story! But it was poorly written. It was super slow up until the very end and then it ended so quickly. It could have had another chapter with a "family update" or something. But it was such a good story you had to finish it.

Slow start, but the characters were built very well. Once into the story, I was glad it ended as it did!

This was a decent novel, definitely of the chick lit genre, but with a British accent. It reminded me a bit of a book I read several years ago, "The Reading Group" by Elizabeth Noble.

The basic premise is that one friend stole the other's boyfriend when they were 17. Now she's returned to their hometown, married to the boyfriend in question. Neither of the friends' lives have turned out the way they imagined, and the boyfriend stealer becomes convinced that she stole the life her friend was meant to have.

While it was a fun read, I saw the ending coming half-way through the book. I spent the second half waiting for the main characters to pull their heads out of their arses.

Good book, though it was a little slow getting into. Very good ending. Definite food for thought. This would be my third favorite out of the books I've read by Rowan Coleman, first being Accidental Mother.
