    what can I say In all honestly I picked this book up because the blurb said it was like The First Wives Club. no it s not, its nothing like it and I loved that book one of my favs This book however is. blahh.I thought the story was slow, although there are a few characters I found it was mainly based round just one character and her best friend, you barely touch the surface of the other women and they seem 2 dimensional I really wanted to like this I read to the end but it s not a what can I say In

    A word of warning this is not The First Wives Club Aside from the obvious reasons, The First Wives Club is farserious and detailed than this book, and if you haven t read the former than please DO because it is amazing This sort of genre chick lit family drama is the sort I pick up occasionally, intermittently it isn t my regular type of read Half the time I like these types of books, but this one, for me at least, fell into the other half There s nothing fundamentally wrong wit A word of warning this is not The Firs

    This book takes a look at the lives of four women who are all on the road to becoming stepmothers, and the emotional struggles and heartbreak that can arise from taking on a man who already has children It deals with many emotional issues that are faced by women today in a very sympathetic way, and the females are all portrayed as likeable characters, even when their behaviour is less than perfect.However, because it is written from the females perspective the men come off much less favourably This book takes a look at the

    The story was interesting enough But the female characters were so annoying Weak and daft, they were unable to figure out that unless the father is a criminal or psycho, it s in a child s best interests to know him Or at least be told that he wants to meet her The other protagonists made every point other than that one.And what s with the jerks of men Really, these characters were difficult to like and that s why I m going with an It was OK rating on this one.Except the book was also The story was interesting enough But the fema

    An ordinary chicklit book with somedepth to it What if the the love of your life came with kids attached What would you do and and how would you treat the kids The kids that always will come first, not you The book doesn t give any big insights on those questions, but it gives you a feeling that you re not alone Stepmother, stepfather or stepchild, other s have been in your shoes before Great friends who can lend you an ear or two over coffee and wine is also of course good Definite An ordinary chicklit book with somedepth to it What if the

    I read this in a day as I couldn t put it down Great story and believable characters that you empathised with and wanted to know how it all turned out The Stepmothers s Support Group starts out as three friends meeting for coffee Clare, her sister Lily, and her lifelong friend Eve meet up to discuss Eve s problems with her stepchildren, or the eldest in particular The group expands, as do the stories.
