Under normal circumstances bohemian, skint Izzie would never have met Maddy, a Gucci-clad, Beemer-driving urbanite.

But when they are dumped in the English countryside, fish out of water, with five young children between them, they discover a shared hatred of ghastly ladies' lunches and a longing for the mucky London streets and residents' parking permits they've left behind.

Listener Opinions

    " Chick lit with bit more substance. A good travel read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 2/16/2014

    " The rating is as chick lit. The first chapter almost drove me off; take every stereotype and relentless brand-naming (I know, I read the title) and ugh. Fortunately though I stuck with it and under the chick there is some lit here - the women work, love, lose, regret, compromise...and are rewarded. Well they were in Austen too right? This book isn't full of luminous prose or unforgettable characters but it is solid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison | 2/9/2014

    " Liked it while I was reading it but almost instantly forgettable! But I did feel some sympathy for Marcus - was I the only one who felt he had a point when his wife decided to go to France for a week without telling him? I know it was written as though he was the "villain" but she didn't seem to talk to or consider him much! But it's a minor irritation - most of the time it was just a good, fun but completely brainless read! "

    " Probably the most drawn out book I've ever read. I have a thing about finishing books I start, I think because I always hope it will get better and I wouldn't want to miss that. Don't bother finishing this book though. Both the main characters have no redeeming value, I never really cared about either of them or felt for them in anyway. The writers skim over so much depth, that it ended up being like reading the cliffs notes to an already boring story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Patty | 2/4/2014

    " too long, just couldn't get through it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Hough | 2/2/2014

    " What a fantastic story. Absolutly loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lin | 1/29/2014

    " There's potential here, but it bogs down in lots of telling instead of showing. There's also a lesson here that two authors don't necessarily make the book twice as good; instead, it seems to have led to uneven writing. The bones are good. The name-dropping, however, probably won't hold up over time -- and it certainly didn't translate across the pond. Much of my reading was flipping pages filled with references that meant nothing to me to get on with the plot. I liked seeing Izzy stand up to the corporate types, but I would have liked to cheer her on instead of thinking "Where did that come from?" Yes, there was mention of her having worked in London but nothing to show her business acumen. The connection between Izzy and Maddy was semi-believeable -- but at the expense of stereotyping the English country set. Did it have to be all outsiders against the native bullies? I don't want to nitpick the book because it was "okay" -- but not I book I'd tell friends they have to read. "

    " It was hard to get into, but I'm glad I read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adele | 1/13/2014

    " good for when you don't want to read a book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa | 1/13/2014

    " Actually much better than the title might indicate. A stupid title really for an actually pretty good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzi | 11/23/2013

    " Turned out to be a cute book. Picked up from bargain pile at Borders. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meredith | 11/22/2013

    " I always love a good "beach book", but this one was dull and bored me to tears. I just couldn't get through it - which is rare for me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mich | 10/15/2013

    " not bad not bad. two women 'find' each other while living in the english countryside. really good chicklit, 'feel'good story of women and their friendship "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cathy | 9/7/2013

    " Quite boring. Glad it's over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 8/28/2013

    " This was engaging and a lot of fun. It would get a 5 if some of the more interesting scenes were shown rather than told via exposition. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josie Forshaw | 7/11/2013

    " Ok so I will confess, I love a bit of chic lit every now and again! This was a pretty decent storyline, and I was willing the characters along whole heartedly. A great refreshing book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Missquimmie | 7/8/2013

    " Fun summer read, enjoyed it quite a bit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judie Schultz | 7/2/2013

    " A good hurricane Sandy read. I needed to escape Pennsylvania for a while and England was just the place! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Hobbs | 2/12/2013

    " This was a great between studying book. Light hearted and very easy to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica | 9/1/2012

    " Somewhat enjoyable, chick-lit in semi-rural England. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 8/30/2012

    " A cute enough book. Nothing exciting one way or the other. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Priscilla Matuson | 2/16/2012

    " A good beach read. I highly enjoyed the story after reading several heavy books and before reading Left to Tell. A good mindless read is much appreciated. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Niki | 11/29/2011

    " I thought the best thing about this book is the cover which is why I picked it up on a bargain shelf but found the story very forgettable, even after reading the plot again I could barely remember the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 8/17/2011

    " Cute story about a couple English housewives who strike it rich making face cream. Not an all time fav but a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 7/21/2011

    " Enjoyable book that falls into the "mature, intelligent women's romance" category. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jules | 5/11/2011

    " Though it got a little long at times, it was a good read with a happily ever after. I liked when Jean Luc came to town with his french ways! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 5/5/2011

    " This was a fun and easy book to read. A simple, sweet story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 3/6/2011

    " For a chick lit book, I liked it. Not too fluffy and had some depth. When I give it four stars, I'm giving it four stars in the chick lit category. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/18/2011

    " What a fantastic story. Absolutly loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 1/2/2011

    " very cute, and wasn't as predictable as most chick-lit. sometimes it was hard to decipher the british dialect, but overall, it was a good, easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betty | 12/21/2010

    " Good story of 2 very different women who moved for their husband's jobs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marisa | 12/7/2010

    " Good chick lit, but I've read better. A good "best mate" book with not a lot of romance if you're into that kind of book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Priscilla | 10/6/2010

    " A good beach read. I highly enjoyed the story after reading several heavy books and before reading Left to Tell. A good mindless read is much appreciated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 6/23/2010

    " Slow first half but decent second half. I'll give the author another shot with another read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 6/12/2010

    " way better than expected....fun and different twist on the typical chick-lit read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 5/8/2010

    " I wouldn't say this is my favorite book by any means but I enjoyed it. Parts were a little dragged out and I was ready to be done by the end. But I was happy with how it all wrapped up. Would like to read something else by this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 2/28/2010

    " I needed something brainless to read. It may be an excuse to be stupid for a bit, but that's fine by me! "
