This is a review of a book written in 1998 by Catherine Alliott titled Rosie Meadows Regrets... which has been on the bookshelf for literally years before I read it. I had read another book by the same author a few years ago which I quite enjoyed so must have picked this one up after reading that. A bit about In Rosie Meadows Regrets... the main protagonist is of course Rosie, who has been married unhappily to Harry for a couple of years. She feels downtrodden and disrespected by him and the only saving grace is their son Ivo, conceived on their honeymoon and now two years old. After a series of unfortunate events involving Harry being drunk, the final ... Read the complete review

There is a common character in all the Catherine Alliott books I have read so far. She goes by a different name in each one, of course, but she’s always the hapless underdog that triumphs in the end. Always the butt of her family’s jokes or criticisms, and always with a slightly off-beat, ney oddball approach to life, she nevertheless manages to snag the most handsome (usually rich) and talented man in the story by the time you reach the last page. Rosie Meadows is such a character, and though the character is familiar from previous books, and the plot twists are, to say the least, far-fetched, nevertheless this is, once more, a very good read. You ... Read the complete review

This book is another great read from Catherine Alliot. After reading a couple of her books I've become hooked and this is no exception. Some parts of the storyline are a bit whacky and unrealistic but that is what makes it so funny. Rosie Meadows has been married to Harry for 3 years. She wasn't really commited to the relationship from the beginning but it was the start of what she thought could be a nice cosy and easy life. However, further down the line she is beginning to realise that there is more to life than posh lunches she doesn't really want to attend, shooting weekends and bridge parties. She has had enough of playing the loyal wife in a social scene ... Read the complete review

This is the second Catherine Alliott book I have read and I have thoroughly enjoyed both. Her books are a very light hearted read, some would say “holiday” reading but most enjoyable if you don’t want something too serious. The main character in this book is Rosie Meadows and you follow her life for a while, meeting her family and friends along the way. There are times when I became a little frustrated with her and the way she did things but I guess that is only to be expected! We cannot all be the same! There are twists and turns and just as you think Rosie’s life is going well there is a hiccup, when she is taken into interrogation by the police. ... Read the complete review
