Love Love Love it.

Another great story from Cecilea Ahern. She writes easy to follow stories without complicated plots. This is one of my favourite books so far.
Love the way the main character has to answer to her life!
Something we should all have to do, and hopefully with the same funny outcome.
Well worth a listen if you are a fan of her books.

Lovely quirky story

I enjoyed this book and it was easy to get in to. The characters were well presented. The main character is very likeable, struggling to appear confident and happy by weaving a web of innocent lies to hide the fact that she was not, which in turn confuses both family and friends. Whilst she tries to come to terms with the end of a love affair, keep a job, maintain her friendships and pretend all is fine, in walks "Her Life" who helps her to face things and move forward. Lovely quirky story. Recommended.
