My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Having enjoyed Joanne’s debut novel, ‘Can’t Live Without’, I was keen to read this sequel and have to say I wasn’t disappointed. The story is cleverly written in the first person with a good mix of emotional conflict and lots of humour thrown in; you’ll find yourself laughing out loud in places.
Stella Hill is back after having her happy ending in Can’t Live Without (requisite for Chick-Lit, really). The story opens with her daughter Lipsy about to give birth to her own baby, and Stella’s plans to marry her sexy partner and life-love, Paul Smart. What follows is a humorous account of ‘what could go wrong, will go wrong’, all thanks to typical human emotions and reactions to certain situations. No matter what your background, you can be sure you’ll identify with some of Stella’s capers as you journey with her throughout the book.
Thoroughly recommend this as a top class Chick-Lit entertaining read.
