Within only one week of the skiing-trip, Lily falls in love with two people (both of whom she has only known for several days or even hours) and is confused about at least one other guy. She then analyses every single step they make, every little look they give her, just about everything - and the reader has to read through every single step. It is like being captured in the head of a thirteen year old girl. After having fallen for a true playboy, who really treats her badly and has got a girlfriend, she finally realizes (from one moment to the other) that he is not for her and starts hating this guy (we are described this loathing at length, too.) Immediately (i.e. only one or two hours after) she falls for another guy, who just so happens not only to have a year-long relationship, but whose girlfriend is even present throughout the whole skiing-trip. The fact that the guys Lily is falling for keep having girlfriends does not matter to her one bit: She is always convinced that she is the right girl for these guys and that it will only be a matter of time before they realize that really she is their true love (despite having known her for only days. As chance would have it, the girlfriend of the second guy is, luckily for Lily, an awful person, which for Lily and apparently for the author, too, seems to be enough justification to try hard to manipulate their relationship and snatch away someone else's boyfriend.
The whole story left me thinking that I am glad that I never came across a person like the main character: Insecure inside, she trys making up for it by seeking approval from varios guys, which goes even as far as stepping over the line and turning into a nasty homewrecker. That, mixed with the writing style that left me mostly bored rather than curios, and the fact that one little skiing-trip stretches to almost 300 pages makes it one of the worst chick lit books I've ever read.
I liked Lily. She was a little naive and too quick to put her heart on her sleeve, but there was something romantic about that and I liked her for it. The progression of the story was quite unpredictable and I found myself guessing who Lily was going to end up with (and I guessed wrong!), which was a nice change for a chick-lit book.
The whole story is quite cute and I enjoyed it. It's lighthearted, with just enough romance and humor to make it fun to read. Yarah David is an excellent addition to the chick-lit genre.
