In short, this felt a bit like a Miss Marple but without the murder mystery. A modern day St Mary Mead with a bit more backbone. Lovely read that was funny without trying too hard or taking itself too seriously. Great to see a book mention suicidal thoughts and attempts without being morose and showing that deciding to live is not a ‘failed attempt’ but a positive and powerfully good decision (however tough). Not up there with ‘Obstacles to young love’ but still good.
From: the library
Read: Feb 2016 instead of a long list of chores
Felt: Mildly charmed and amused. Slightly peeved with the ending.
Would recommend: for a gentle lighthearted distraction
