Disfunctional family

It was difficult to warm to either of the main characters, or any of the other characters either. Niamh (Neve) was an unlikeable woman, obsessed with finding a father for her child and Kit wasn't much better - seemed to have only married Niamh to get a mother for his daughter. Lies, lies and more lies were the basis of this story and I stuck with it to the end but won't be listening to any more by this author.

This book made me really mad by the end

I finished this in one sitting, I had to find out what happened. This was a really hard book to review without giving away spoilers, but how someone could do that to a child, especially with special needs which makes it worse, but a child is bad enough, to get their own desires satisfied makes me furious. I literally felt angry at the end of this. The 2 main characters I disliked so much for different reasons. I could sum this up in 2 words... "Shannon Mathews." Kit and neve were just as bad as each other in my opinion. I was heart broken for poppy. The interaction between her and Neve when Poppy kept repeating something, made me want to reach in to the book and grab poppy, and give Neve a piece of my mind. Neve deserved everything she got, and more. I never thought I'd hate a character, but I hated Neve.
