Found it a little predictable and I wanted the main character to grow a pair. The narrator couldn’t do accents which made it laughable in places.

Fate is on its way to the tenants of 66 Star Street, bringing with it love and tragedy, friendship and heartbreak, and the power to change lives... One of them is falling in love; another is torn between two lovers. For some, secrets they want to stay buried will come to light, and for others, the unveiling of those secrets will have tragic consequences.

I've read a lot of Marians books before but this was just awful. I listened to it driving for a 4 hour trip and so got strangely drawn in. Don't! Save yourself and your time and money!

Three sisters, one birthday, one little problem... The three Kettle sisters have had a mortifying mishap. Their raucous, champagne-soaked birthday dinner has come to an abrupt end following a violent argument and an emergency dash to the hospital. So who started it this time? Was it angry, hurt Cat, still recovering from the 'night of the spaghetti'? Was it Lyn, so serenely successful, at least on the outside? Or was it quirky, dreamy Gemma, the sister who can't keep a secret except for the most important one of all?

I have read all of Lianes books before but this one is terrible. After three hours I couldn't care less about the characters and the narrators voice just grates on me. Her voice is like fingers down a blackboard.

It doesn't help that the style of writing changes throughout each chapter from person to person and so it's very easy to lose track of who is saying what. Multiple voices are needed.

Waste of money and very disappointed

What do you do when the man in you life lets you down? Show him the door? Chuck his clothes out of the window? If only it was that easy - especially when you've got an eight year old to think about and a part-time job that barely pays the milk bill.

This story is three hours too long and the title doesn't reflect the story at all. The voice grates after what seems like 27 hours and the intonation is dreadful at times. The ending is feeble and rushed.
