Firstly thank you to Elaine at Orion for sending me a Copy to review.

I have really enjoyed the books of cathys that I’ve read so far.

This was a fun read and I enjoyed being involved In these characters lives.

My favorite was cari who is a very strong woman and her new love interest definitely caught my interest.

My only criticism is there was a lot of characters and at times there wasn’t an easy flow to the story-line. This often made the book feel unnecessarily busy ,taking the focus away from the main charactars .

However this is a modern tale of love friendship and family and what do you do when you feel you can’t get over the hurt in your life?

A very  enjoyable read from a author who knows how to write Womens fiction!
