I liked all the card stuff, thought it was interesting but in general I don't like her writing. I'm not some weirdo either who bought the second book even though I didn't like the first - my granny-in-law knows her daughter and has bought both books for me.
I'm hoping she doesn't write another as I'll be getting it for Christmas
If I hadn't have been on holiday and desperate for reading matter, I probably wouldn't have finished it. But that was the only thing in the hotel "library" (ie books that people had left behind) that wasn't chick lit or a blood and guts detective novel.
