Regular chick lit with interesting African photographer as main character. The second half of the storyline was very weak and it was still hard to determine how her sister had changed so quickly into "mother, wife and house creator". Of course it does ask what every woman this century is asking "career or family or can I have both?".

Neesy passed me this book at meetup yesterday, "Not all goddesses are domestic" it says on the cover, but all Wendys are goddesses! :)
I started reading this on the train on the way home and am enjoying it so far, though it bugs me when people (even in books) say "its so hard having 2 kids" when they have AuPairs! She should try 4 and no nanny! (Sorry just irks me!)
Thanks for this!

I didn't mind this one, was okay as far as chic lit goes. This is the second I have had recently were they have had "help" to look after the children, do people actually look after their own children anymore?????

I would have liked to have known more about the photography and Africa, and I think that Alice would have been an absolute hoot to learn more about, but all in all this was pretty easy to read.

I agree with Neesy the end was a little weak and I found that I was drifting a bit and the end, but at the end she leaves it all to the end, so you have something to read for right to the bitter end...

I really liked this book, I could relate quite well with Charlie's character about how you go back to your home country after years gone and everyone is in their own world and could care less about what you have seen or done. This book is chick lit, so you can't criticize it too much, it is meant to be a light read. There was a balance of characters on opposite ends of the scale plus a few zany characters to keep it interesting. Thanks for rabck-ing it to me MadamMuck, I'll probably add this to the chick lit bookbag going around.

I enjoyed this although there were parts that seemed a bit pointless. Would Art really call Edwards 'cheesy'? Arsehole or bastard maybe, but cheesy! Sheesh! I thought Andrew Edwards was quite a pointless addition entirely. A few other sections did that too me as well but mostly it was light & entertaining & very easy reading.

I like Charlie & would have enjoyed a bit more Africa & photography too, but it's a 'Wendy House' we're dealing with, not a tent in the bush, so it makes sense that it was all set in London. Don't the folks sound a hoot? How awful!
