Advantages: Great lead character, flows nicely and enjoyable all round
For my birthday back in January, my friend bought me a selection of books by my favourite authors and as an added extra she bought me this thinking it would be the kind of book I would enjoy and in actual fact she got it spot on as I already own three of this authors previous books but, she just didn't know that and so I was very pleased indeed when I found out. It is only now though, that I have finally gotten around to reading it as my book pile is really quite huge and it is taking a fair while to get through all these books I keep either buying, or being given!
Jane Moore is an English author who has written a total of six books including this one. Also a columnist for the Sun and GQ magazine and she regularly writes and investigates pieces for various TV documentaries.
Cam is a woman who doesn't know how to get out of the rut she has found herself in. Living with her boyfriend Dean, of six years and constantly wondering if this is as good as life gets, she is unsure if this is how it is supposed to be after a long time together or whether it should still be a little more interesting. She decides a holiday with her friends is in order and that she can clear her mind. However she didn't bank on meeting Tom, a single father who she discovers has made her feel a spark of excitement. Thinking this is a good time to return home to Dean and try to ignite the spark in their relationship she has all good intentions to do just that until one morning over breakfast, a message comes on from Tom, looking for Cam to get in touch. Now having to face up to the situation she realises she needs to make a decision - does she stay with Dean who can offer a comfortable, reliable but, mundane life or risk everything on a new start with somebody who could possibly be the one?
The character of Cam is a likable one. She is the friend you can imagine having and somebody who is down to earth and just generally having doubts about life and love the same as thousands of others do around the world all the time. Because she is such a real type of person it is easy to relate to her and like her and the fact that she is generally a nice person too makes her somebody that you want the best for too.
Dean again is another character that the author has made as a nice person and this is what makes the story so easy to read because you can really see how both are just your average everyday couple who are struggling to get out of a rut but, both don't want to hurt each other. I also like that the character of Tom has been written as a caring person too as I think if he had been made to be an nasty type person it would have made the story less realistic.
There are a fair few other people who feature who make the book come alive such as Cam's friends Saira and Ella and also Cam's family members, such as her mum and brothers. Overall, I feel the author has created some interesting people and these are very much what make the book work so well.Price:
I am not sure how much my friend paid for the book. Knowing how much like me she is though, she probably bought it as part of a 3 for 2 book offer! The RRP is £6.99 and I would say the book is worth the money but, of course, you can nearly always pick up books cheaper nowadays than their RRP!
I really enjoyed the book as I knew I would. Every other book I have read by this author has been interesting and well written and this one is no exception. The story isn't anything that hasn't already been covered before but, the way the story is written and the fact that the characters are likable makes the book really enjoyable. I liked that Cam was written as a normal, down to earth type of person and somebody that was easy to. I think using the subject of relationships and of those feelings of doubt is a topic that many would be able to relate to and empathise with and it was clever for the author to use this. Overall I was very impressed with the book because not only did it touch on this subject but, it was also light hearted in places too and therefore not a depressing read considering what the story was about! Definitely another book I would recommend from this author.
