I love reading about her characters living in the city I grew up in too... very refreshing from the all too common americanised world.
This is the last book I’ve read of Liane’s and I can’t wait until she writes another.
Do yourself a favour and grab a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy.
Found the relationships in the book very interesting, forced friendships, struggling marriages, failed action, or inaction.
However, events lead to awakenings that have great promise for the future,

in the whole book. Pages upon pages of detail about the ins and outs of each character, no matter how relevant or not they are to the story. Some of the characters are downright insipid, but we still have to know them like the back of our hands, whether we like it or not. Because otherwise this would be a short story, not a novel.
Secondly, the author uses a really annoying and infuriating writer's technique: time travel. She keeps switching between present and bbq day. Back n forth, back n forth, like a tennis ball. As soon as you get a handle on the present, she takes you back in time to a snippet of bbq day. By the time that chapter has finished, you've forgotten the details of the present in the previous chapter. This happens so much that, not only do you have an almighty headache because of all the toing and froing, but halfway through the book you've lost interest in both the present and the bbq day. This format is pointless here, adding nothing to the book at all.
Normally, I read a book cover to cover in one or two sittings. If its a good book, I find it almost impossible to put it down. But this book dragged so much that it took me two weeks to get to the bitter end. More than just bitter, the end was flat and disappointing.
