      Not quite 'chick-lit'

      I chose this book not really sure what to expect. I thought it would be your average `chick-lit' with very little substance and that the title said it all. However, I was wrong. This book packed quite a punch and very quickly I was hooked in the lives of the characters. Although the reader does know the premise for the book based on the blurb on Amazon and on the cover, you aren't aware of the emotions that Becca (and her family) experience as one deceit reveals another.

      I enjoyed this book and was actually disappointed when it ended; I felt it could have gone on for a little bit longer. Sarah Duncan uses cliff-hangers effectively - there are a lot of them but for good reason and they certainly keep you reading well after you intended closing the book. The characters are real; you can imagine them not only from the description but will know people like them. Nothing seems fabricated - I can genuinely imagine these circumstances happening; perhaps that's why the book is successfully written.

      Nothing turns out the way you plan and Becca succeeds in proving this. The only niggle I did have was that I couldn't get away with Becca calling her parents by their first names. I imagine this does happen in some families, it just didn't sit well with me and if that is the only complaint from a novel then I'd call that an achievement. This was a book that was easy to become involved with.
