  • Perfect

    By Sazmoon
    I loved it! Great story timeline, emotionally gripping, the characters and interactions so honest and real, warts and all. I laughed out loud, felt the hurt and frustration, and the joy. The first book that has compelled me to write a review.

    This was such a brilliant read, I found myself frequently letting out loud bursts of laughter and in turn, receiving many a bemused look from others as I did so!

  • Made me Laugh

    By Amyshere
    Enjoyed this light hearted read. Refreshing to read a funny story with a happy ending that isn't about a miserable woman sick of marriage. Actually laughed out loud in places and became invested in main character. Good read would recommend
