Review by

The plot of this book could have been quite interesting but it was spoiled by the narration. The narrator of the story (told in the first person) is what Aussies call a 'whinging Pom'. She seems to find fault with anything and everything and, along with her boyfriend, does nothing but complain the whole way through. I found this extremely annoying and it distracted me from the storyline. I doubt I'll be reading anything else by this author.
