Fantastic Read

At my local book club, my mind was set on reading something else, until I spotted this book on top of some others on a shelf.What initially attracted me to it was the cover. I was disappointed to find that there was no synopsis, but I decided to give it a try. At first, I thought I had made a mistake - I found that it dragged in the beginning - but somewhere near the middle, the story started to pick up, and I found it hard to put down! I loved the characters, especially Ria's son Brian and the twists and turns - I never suspected Ria's friend Rosemary's affair with her husband! All in all, it was very enjoyable; I was even sad when I finished it because I didn't want it to end : )

Full of People!
