'An excellent insight into our typical lives and relationships. I'm sure women everywhere will be able to identify with ! this eventful story.'
Closer Magazine

'Like a glass of Frascati after a long day! Delightful.'
Kate Long

'The wonderful Sue Welfare returns with this slick, wickedly witty and tightly plotted tale about family secrets, little white lies and the things you don't want your children to know. Full of her trademark down-to-earth humour and fabulously drawn characters, this book is an absolute joy. Do yourself a favour and lock yourself away for the weekend with it, a big box of chocolates and a few glasses of electric grape-juice. Smashing!
Milly Johnson.

'Sue Welfare's clever take on domestic dilemmas and feuding families has a piquant charm that crosses the generations and puts the lives and loves, hopes and fears of everyday folk firmly in the spotlight!. A treat for romantics of any age.' Lancashire Evening Post
