The Start of Something Wonderful, Jane Lambert

The Start of Something Wonderful,  Jane Lambert

The Start of Something Wonderful by [Lambert, Jane]

Genre: romance, women’s fiction

Gah! Women’s fiction – how I hate that we have a whole genre for women, why dismiss books as being of interest to men….what price equality when we segregate ourselves. Rant over ;-0

So, I really wanted to like this book, its got a lead character who’s older, and as someone older myself that’s always interesting to find. Choosing a huge career change too was going to be interesting to read I thought.
Sadly though I felt sorry for Emily I just didn’t like her, found her friends gossipy, the humour felt forced and trying a little too hard and her trials on the way to acting were just plain hard going. What should have been fun to read became a chore for me and I didn’t finish. Sorry. I can see from Goodreads that others love this, and that’s great, but for me it wasn’t one that worked.

Stars: Two, DNF, some stories I love and others just don’t fit my taste, sadly this was one of those. Perfect for many readers, the story was fine it just wasn’t one that suited me.
