Description

Romantic comedy with heart, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Mhairi McFarlane.

Jess, a 29-year-old Londoner with a Kate Beckett fringe and a tendency for dramatics, gets taken on a surprise trip by her long-term boyfriend, Pete, to attend her best friend’s last-minute wedding in South Africa. Jess imagines sun, sand, wine and safaris. And returning to London with an ethically mined diamond on her left hand...

But this holiday isn’t set to be quite the fairy tale Jess has planned. Suddenly she finds her world tilting on its axis, and things are only set to get worse when Jess returns home.... 

Catherine Bennetto is back with her trademark wit and an equally hilarious cast of characters who will have you rooting for them from the first minute.

Excruciating. Save yourself.

Review

Only dive into this book if you feel a need to be highly annoyed and frustrated. The viewpoint character is not merely flawed; she is deeply selfish, arrogant, self-centered, judgmental, mean, melodramatic, demanding, self-obsessed, and extremely fond of being angry. Her endless insistence on spinning irritating thoughts and flogging others with them truly stretches a reader’s patience. It is painful to watch her torment those around her, making all situations exclusively about herself, no matter how mean and hurtful it is to others. The author over-indulges in these scenes to an extreme and in excruciating detail. They are torture. I found myself applauding Pete for running away from her. Never ever stay with someone who belittles and discounts your dreams, Pete. And I hoped against how these books go that Jimmy would realize that he deserves a kind, loving woman and not this soul-sucking cyclone of profound selfishness. Readers, don’t waste your energy on this mess.

The narrator does an excellent job of moving fluidly between accents, but Jess’s frequent shrieking is painful to listen to and hard to tolerate. I skipped through the last two hours of this book in about 5 minutes, and I didn’t miss a thing. Completely predictable.

Not a fan

The book was really good until about half way or so...but it went off the tracks and seemed to ramble on and on. After she returns from her trip the story just has no real point. I kept hoping it would get better, but it went no where.
Ana Acton did a fabulous job narrating.

Tourist guide

Enjoyed it but sometimes a bit too much like a tourist guide to Cape Town.

Look for the abridged version

If given the option to choose, choose the shorter version. Other than that, great story! Worth it!

Amazing Narration!

I absolutely loved this book!

The storyline was fun, the characters were love-able, and the scenes were set so perfectly I felt as if I was in South Africa too!

I also truly enjoyed the narration by Anna Acton. Every character had a distinct accent and I could always tell who was talking before the story clarified.

I found myself sitting in my car longer than I needed to when I was driving around, as I always wanted to hear just a little more of the story!

Don’t miss out on this book, purchase it now :)
