Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Book from Jenny Colgan Jenny Colgan is one of my favourite authors, her books are captivating, and this is one of my favourite books by her. I find Rosie's character to be real, she makes errors, embarrasses herself and has a good heart. The story is easy to read, has heart breaking moments while still providing enough humour.
