She watches Ricki Lake, but doesn’t get round to reading a novel.

Q swrah main character performs one act of sarau throughout the whole book, but the truth is, she only did it because she was bored on bedrest and had nothing better to do.
Both Ms Bilston and her editor need to do a self-check. A frustrating, lonely, cookie-eating time. Besides the fact that as I suspected the author wrapped up all the angst of the previous couple hundred pages in about two pages at the end.

It took me longer, because I didn’t feel particularly compelled to pick this book up when I had some free time. Great book for when you need to fill a challenge as it is a new quick read with a character that fits that hard to fill Q spot or a blue cover. I’m just giving up on this book. The main protagonist is just awful. Excited to see how it all ends.
