2.0 out of 5 stars SOOOO glad it was free! April 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had just finished reading Summer Daydreams by the same author and was thrilled with the book. I absolutely fell in love with the characters. So, when I was browsing and saw that the author had a free book on Kindle I jumped at the chance to get lost in another world created by her.

I am sorry to say that it was a complete waste of reading. The characters were pretty likable, but the storyline was overly unrealistic. Now, I absolutely love to get lost in other world's by reading about things I would love to do. This book was such a disappointment. The writing was great, it is just where the author took the characters.

You have Janie (Just Janie) a hairdresser who not so long ago went through a break-up which wasn't exactly earth shattering for her. She spends a lot of time with Mike, her neighbor whose wife left him six months ago for another man. They spend a lot of time together and Mike clearly has feelings for Janie. She decides to unexpectedly take a holiday to Africa and while there "falls in love" with a Mussai Warrior.

The whole story is about this unlikely pairing.

I don't want to tell anymore as not to ruin it for anyone who might actually enjoy this book. I just felt that it was a completely absurd storyline. I was rooting for the main character and kept waiting for the twist at the end and it never happened. It just fell completely flat.

Perhaps I am being super critical,but it just shows how disappointed I was. I was rating it a one star, but I changed it to a two star since I did actually finish the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Huge disappointment October 26, 2012
By Genie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read several of Carole Matthews books and have found them easy, amusing reading - a good alternative when taking a break from something slightly meatier. This one however was pathetic and highly improbable and irritated me almost from the first chapter. I can count on one hand the number of books I have not read to completion but almost started the second hand with this one!! I perservered in the hope it would improve but it actually goes from bad to worse!! Save your money - lots out there where it would be better spent.

3.0 out of 5 stars I WANTED to be wrapped up in it, but.... December 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Okay, where do I begin? I was looking forward to reading Carole's new book as I always find I can curl myself up and lose myself in the stories she writes. Indeed I did curl up, however as for losing myself... well.. it never really felt like that. Let me explain...

Now maybe I am biased, ever since reading Carole's Chocolate Lovers Club I have been a little bit obsessed with those books as they were perfect tens in my eyes. I have read each and every book of hers and have never, not enjoyed one. With her latest release I was convinced that even if I had my doubts reading the synopsis, I would be proved wrong. We meet Janie Johnson and soon learn that she is an ordinary woman leading an ordinary life. From the outset I liked Janie and found myself smiling at the brilliant storytelling that Carole Matthews has in abundance.

As we learn that Janie is trying to move on, following the revelation that her ex is getting married and having a child, we see her mind trying to contemplate what way to best achieve her goal. We see Janie try a blind date which goes disastrously wrong (but which is very funny) and after much dithering she makes a bold decision. Instead of spending Christmas on her own with her cat, she is going to visit Africa. This for me was where the story maybe went a bit south.

Janie flies off to Africa and falls head over heels in love with Dominic, a Maasai Warrior. The story itself was still (in Carole Matthews's style) brilliantly written. Having said that, it was at that point in the book where I started not liking Janie as much as she made more and more decisions based solely on her love for Dominic.

As well as appearing on the Sunday Times and USA Today bestseller lists, Carole is published in 31 different countries. Her novels Welcome To The Real World and Wrapped Up In You were shortlisted for the RNA romantic novel of the year award.

In the USA, the hilarious For Better, For Worse was selected by one of America's top TV book clubs - Reading with Ripa on LIVE with Regis and Kelly - as their book of the month. As a result it went straight into the USA Today and New York Times Extended bestseller lists.

Carole co-edited two editions of the hugely popular Girls' Night In charity series called Girls' Night Out - one for the USA and one for Canada. All proceeds go to War Child.

Born in St Helens, Merseyside, Carole has always been an avid reader and dreamed of being a teacher, an air traffic controller, a travel guide or a hairdresser - writer never featured once. Leaving Liverpool for London after a torrid holiday romance in Torquay, she worked as a secretary, an ice-cream lady, a shop assistant and a beauty therapist. It was when she was working in a completely mad holistic clinic that she first thought 'one day I should write a book about this.' She still hasn't got round to it.
