This series, now that I've read two of them, really doesn't do much for me. I read the second book hoping it'd get better. Probably the trouble is: I don't actually like the main character. I really dislike the famous movie star who's hired her on as a part-time knitting instructor and then pays her a piddling amount per month. Four hundred pounds? Come on. That's not really the main point. It's like reading someone's blog, or listening to your girlfriend talk about herself all the time. And nearly every page is herself doing an inward eye roll or muttering/think "Oh, Christ." when one of her two young fatherless boys actually has a bad dream in the middle of the night.Sorry. It really can't just be all about you.
