"It's real nice, I got it at Target. It was on sale."


I'm on page 117 of this disappointing follow-up novel from Christina Schwarz. She has failed to deliver the carrot-dangling promise of a mid-life crisis somewhere in the plot. I was really looking forward to that. You know, since I'm having a couple of mini-midlife crises of my own about twice a month. It'd be nice to commiserate. Or laugh at someone's worse case of misery and doubt. No such luck. I'm still trying to decide if I even want to wade through the rest of the book. Too bad I pegged this poor author into a genre based solely on her first novel. And too bad her second one doesn't follow through.


Though I have a bad taste in my mouth for her alter-ego Madeleine Wickham (see this post), I'm excited to read this new one by Kinsella. It's on my list. If I decide to chuck the book above, this one's next on the list. I just ♥ Sophie K!! Can't wait for the movie version of Confessions of a Shopaholic! I love the thought of Isla Fisher as Becky, though I'm not so sure about Hugh Dancy as Luke. Guess we'll see.
