A blinder of a tale. - The Sun newspaper
The cast - of housewife, lawyer, jailbird, stringer, general practitioner, teacher - and almost off-stage, marriage deserter, soldier and Hungarian cuckold - is Chaucerian in its social range. And as with Chaucer the subjects' diversity is unified by their starting place; in this case the dating club at the Jacaranda, where three minutes introduction is the maximum time for chatting-up. That this tale is successful is indicated by the scores of appreciative reviews commending its realism, its saucy demotic dialogue and its general high-spiritedness. - David James, author and reviewer
Thoroughly enjoyable page turner. Carol Cooper writes very well and has a very sharp wit so I was smiling all the way through. It's witty, naughty, touching and satisfying. - Vesuvio, Amazon reviewer
Sassy and classy in equal measure. A must. - Pixie McKenna, TV presenter and doctor
