    " Quite enjoyed. Understood why there were so many characters but book seemed rather over populated. Specifically didn't like the last paragraph - too rounded I felt. Also didn't particularly believe in any of the characters which was a shame as with a few tweaks they could have been. Would not rush to read any more of her books. "

    " Interesting concept, but many parts of it were a little too unlikely. "

    " Enjoyable feel good easy read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 1/27/2014

    " This was okay for me. I didn't feel as if I was invested enough in any of adult children, as they searched for their donor father. In fact, the only character I was really rooting for was Maggie. She's the one that deserved the happy ending, not Lydia, Robyn or Dean. "

    " I picked this off the library shelf not knowing what to expect, but looking for something other than my usual reads. It kept me engaged and I enjoyed the premise of the novel. Interesting to think of all those "siblings" from sperm donors who do not of each others existence. "

    " I loved this story! I will look forward to reading Lisa Jewell's other novels. "

    " I liked the story and was satisfied with the ending, but did sometimes grow frustrated with the characters and development. It was a surprisingly quick read, though not as frivolous as I expected, considering many label this chick lit. "

    " Lovely, fun book :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 12/2/2013

    " Original storyline, I struggled a bit with Daniel's character but really enjoyed the unfolding of the story and the children's coming to terms with their beginnings. "

    " Lydia (29), Dean (21) and Robyn (18) find each other througth the Donor Sibling Registry, and also learn alot about themsevles along the way. A very good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen Bidwell | 11/11/2012

    " A clever book and good to read with lots of references to Bury St Edmunds which made it wven more interesting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Avril Dalton | 3/18/2012

    " A nice easy holiday read.... I was keen to see how the story developed. Unrealistic in that everything is sewn up so nicely but it's fiction afterall! "

    " Definitely my least favourite book by Lisa jewell. Not sure why but it took me about 4 months to read! "
