Review by

I enjoyed this book. A perfect summer read but only problem there is no summer really ;) <br/>Yes, I've always loved reading books that are about various women and their friendships. What happens to them and their relationships and how that affects their friendships. Well this was typical a book of that genre. I bought it on Now they have free shipping even outside the UK if you buy over 25 pounds.<br/>It was so much fun adding books to my basket. ;). I think this was recommended to me and i read the reviews and decided to give it a go. It was on sale. Glad I bought it.<br/><br/>I just wish one thing. With most of these books the ending always has to be good for every woman that's in it. So let's say its about 4 women they mostly end up being happy in the end with a man most of the time in not always.That's the only negative
