Una historia puede tener distintos protagonistas. Esta tiene tres: Jojo, agente literaria, atractiva, triunfante y muy, pero muy, ambiciosa. Mantiene relaciones con su jefe, un hombre excelente. Sólo tiene el defecto de estar casado. Lily, autora y cliente de Jojo. Su primera novela ha tenido un éxito enorme. Vive con Anton y están muy enamorados. Compran la casa de sus sueños y tienen un bebé. Pero la creatividad de Lily se paraliza, no puede escribir ni una palabra. Y, lógicamente, tampoco puede pagar las facturas. Por fin, está Gemma, ex novia de Anton y todavía enamorada. Y, encima, Lily era su mejor amiga. Para colmo, su padre se marcha de casa para vivir con una joven, su madre sufre una profunda crisis y exige que Gemma esté a su lado veinticuatro horas al día... Pero la vida y el amor son imprevisibles.

Okay, this was another audiobook which I listened to over a few long runs. I mention this because I find that books I can quite like as audiobooks are often books that I know I wouldn’t enjoy if I read them as a physical book and this is one of those. The reason is because when running, I want something to divert me and keep me occupied while exercising. When I’m reading a physical book I want it immerse myself in it; it’s not a diversion from something else I’m doing. For this reason I can listen to chick-lit audiobooks but I rarely actually read one. This was narrated by Gerri Halligan, who did a good job, although I did find her American accent slightly questionable (but not enough to annoy me).

The story is narrated in alternate chapters by three characters…

Gemma Hogan is still smarting from her ex-boyfriend Anton falling in love with her ex-friend Lily. Life only gets more complicated for her when her father leaves her mother after 35 years of marriage, causing her mother to go to pieces. Gemma finds herself having to babysit her mother at the age of 32.

Lily is blissfully happy with Anton and their daughter Emer, but she can’t help feeling guilty about Gemma, and is convinced that karma will catch up with her and Anton at some point. She writes a book which is a runaway success, but the publishing world is a fickle business.

Jojo is the literary agent who takes on Lily as a client. Jojo is a strong independent and successful woman – who just happens to be in a relationship with her married boss. She is in a cutthroat business and has a complicated love life. Will her career ambitions and her clandestine romance clash?

I found the story somewhat diverting and it did hold my attention for the most part (it seemed to drift along aimlessly for a little while in the middle, and I think the book would have been more effective if it had been shorter). There’s no doubt that Marian Keyes can write humour very well; however for me the main problem was that I didn’t like many of the characters. Gemma was my favourite out of the main three. She was funny and hapless but obviously intelligent. She was also, in my opinion, far too good for Anton and wasted way too much time feeling sad about him.

I didn’t really like Jojo or her boss Mark. I didn’t like that he was cheating on his perfectly lovely wife, and treated his children like a liability that stopped him from having fun with his bit on the side. I didn’t like that Jojo was complicit in that deception. She was portrayed as a tough woman who takes no s**t, but she was happy to wait around for her cheating boyfriend to let her down time after time.

And Lily!! Don’t get me started. She was supposed to be sweet and sensitive but she came across as such a wet weekend. I felt like shaking her and telling her to get a bloody grip. And Anton just annoyed the heck out of me. Feckless with money and generally irresponsible, he was full of pipe dreams, which Lily was expected to finance. I kept wanting her to find a backbone and chuck him out.

With all that said, there were things about this book that I enjoyed; I preferred the first third, which featured Gemma’s job a lot more than later, and there was a side character (Johnny) who I enjoyed hearing about.

I remember reading some of Marian Keyes’ other books many years ago – I loved them. This one was not as enjoyable, but whether that’s because of the book or because of my changing tastes, I’m not sure. I probably would give another book of hers a go, as it was pretty undemanding, but it wouldn’t be top of my list. ( )

Well it took me four months to listen to this book. That is because I am hopeless with audiobooks, it is not a reflection of the book or the narrator
The book was funny, lighthearted, Irish in parts and altogether enjoyable ( )

My bed is a lovely bed. It is not just any old bed. It is a bed I assembled myself and by that I don't mean it came in a flat pack from Ikea. I bought an expensive mattress ... Then the bedding. I have not one but two duvets. The second one goes UNDER my sheet, so I lie on top of it. It's a trick my mother taught me and it's hard to convey the bliss of climbing in and being received by the fluffy, feathery envelope. The duvets seem to stroke me, murmuring, "You're okay now, we've got you, we've got you, let it go, it's all okay, you're safe now". Sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases: cotton, of course, and they are white, white, white. Unique feature: the headboard: Aka: the best bit. It's a headboard fit for a fifties movie star: big, padded and all curves and curlicues, upholstered in silk, it's a bit of a fairy tale.

Jojo Harvey is a literary agent whose star is on the rise. In love with both her married boss and her burgeoning career, not much distracts her. Until she finds herself representing two women who used to be best friends.

Geen bibliotheekbeschrijvingen gevonden.

Jojo Harvey is literair agente in Londen. Zij is slim, sexy en succesvol - en verliefd op haar getrouwde baas. Jojo krijgt nog meer problemen met een paar cliënten, Gemma en Lily, twee vrouwen die tot voor kort de allerbeste vriendinnen waren.

Lili Wright, de lange, slanke, blonde bestsellerauteur. Haar debuutroman sloeg destijds in als een bom. Lily heeft het voorschot voor haar tweede boek allang opgemaakt, maar er staat nog geen letter op papier. En de deadline nadert met rasse sprongen.

Gemma Hogan was Lily's hartsvriendin. Tot Lily Anton van haar afpakte. Hij was Gemma's droomprins. Van schrik koopt ze vijf paar nieuwe schoenen.
Haar hilarische e-mails belanden via via op het bureau van Jojo. Die ziet daar wel een bestseller in.
