I didn't get the chapter names. WTF? And they were so stupid! Eg: 'Alison receives another surprise' 'Leah makes a big mistake' 'Alison is worried by some startling news'. er The main two characters were okay, but the third, the one they need to 'save' from her asshole hubby wasn't particularly likable. Is it bad that the bit I enjoyed the most was the daughter of one of the main character's being pregnant and not knowing which identical twin she slept with was the baby!daddy?
Not especially interesting, but it was a quick easy read. The storyline was a bit boring/disappointing.
Couldn't really get into this book so gave up half way through.
all i can say about this book is it doesn't interest me much. not my kind of book
Didn’t really enjoy this book
Rating: 4/5 starsSummary: Alison, Merrily, and Leah are childhood friends. Like the usual childhood friends, they spent most of their lives hanging out together. Alison, the oldest of the trio, is the one who gives her friends advice and strength; Merrily is somewhat the shy girl of the group; and Leah, the youngest, is some sort of a "popular girl". But one day, on their adult lives, Merrily decided to disappear from her friends, to Alison and Leah's dismay and confusion. And after some years, [...]

A great book! Usually I know just where a storyline is heading but Debby holt always seems to surprise me! I was most surprised to hear a mention of a character from another of her books - recipe for scandal! I've only just read that one recently so it was a surprise to recognise the name and the catering job she has! Brilliant twist by Debby there. Overall was very happy with the plot and how everything worked out in the end, especially for Leah!
One star. I found this book useless. A time waste read. I found the characters really boring. Not being old fashioned or something but, that Molly kid was way too bright for a nine year-old. Especially, when she's discussing Charlotte's hurting nipples and her knowledge of raising a baby, on the phone with her mother. I just couldn't get easy with all that.
Really liked this book but hated that it had names for its chapters, quite juvenile i thought!Alison annoyed me, she was a bit stuck up for my liking but I liked Leah she made me laugh and was a favourite :D
Despite its good storyline I can't help but to skip a few last chapters as some parts are a tad bit draggy. Nevertheless, it's a a good read if you're looking for a light and easy reading or just something to read while on holiday
This has got to be the best book I've read this year so far! Great storyline!
nice story except have too many characters and kinda confusing sometimes.

Fun, off beat reading. i read this on a holidays and it was perfect when you don,t want anything serious. Loved the charaters and I started reading it, I couldn't put it down.
