I read Goodnight,beautiful. It was so so sad and beautifully written. I then read Marshmallows for breakfast. Not as good. I'm now half way through The Cupid Effect and I just dont think I can be bothered to carry on. How can one book be so amazing while the others are pretty boring? Anyone else read her?

Is The Cupid Effect her first novel? I've not read that but have read all of her others. I enjoyed all of them although at times they did seem a bit the same. Think My Best Friends Girl was my favourite.

I felt exactly the same about marshmallows for breakfast, have you read 'my best friends girl' it was wonderful,enjoyed 'goodnight beautiful' think her books are a bit of a hit or miss.

I've only read My Best Friends Girl, and thought it was brilliant smile

i read my best friends girl first, read it on a flight to Canada, finished it on the way over, totally loved it, have read all her other books and goodnight beautiful, made me cry funnily enough in an airport just about to fly home from Canada, four year gap between the two.

i enjoy all her books, i like authors that hook me into the story she reminds me of a light hearted jodi picoult, who i also love

I sobbed reading Goodnight beautiful and thought it was really good. I did finish The cupid effect and Marshmallows for breakfast but didn't enjoy them as much. I haven't read My best friends girl.

I went out and got Goodnight beautiful a few days ago afer reading what you'd all said about it, but now I might leave it a while if it's a weepy. I don't need any help right nowblush

goodnight beautiful was a gripping read, I kept thinking about it for ages after i'd finished.

I have Goodnight Beautiful out from the library at the moment - I've put it down to read one of my other library books as it's SO BORING!

Tell me it gets better!

I must be in the minority here as I thought my best friends girl was badly written sentimental crap.

And this from someone who usually picks books with pink or green covers.grin

I have not bothered reading any more of her books as a result.

I read My Best Friend's Girl recently.

I thought it was a predictable load of shite and badly written too. I can't believe I didn't give up on it.
