Really enjoyed this book. We thought it was wonderful that a man (the author) could have such sensitivity to a woman’s feelings. It also had a nice happy ending for a change, gave us a lift.

    Mixed reactions from the reading group. Some enjoyed the book others less so. A ‘holiday’ slightly formulaic.
