I was after something light and thought this might be too light but it worked out well. I almost didn’t pick it up off the library shelf but then saw it was a follow on book featuring the sisters Pip, Fen & Cat from earlier books by the author. The earlier books were very “girl meets boy and lives happily ever after”. This therefore must be about how the “happily ever after” bit works out. Which it is. And I enjoyed it a lot. It’s quite bittersweet in places, not always frivolous, the characters aren’t having a good time all the time and they have grown up quite a lot. I’ll probably pick North’s other recent books up at some point, these are better than any other “chick lit” I’ve tried to read.
