I found it difficult to latch on to this novel. Rosie was disappointing, she’s spineless and has no direction or thought as to her life, future. Discovering your pregnant at 44 is far more serious than the plot dictated. Plausibility was tough for me to swallow, however, I realize there are folks out there similar to this cast of issue ladened protagonists. Rosie failed to manage her own life but yet she questions Tony? Think again Rosie. Jonathan was a self absorbed liability Rosie should have cut loose long ago. Tony seemed to be the most ‘stable’ and grounded out of the motley bunch.
Dawson writes well, demonstrates a sense of humor. I’m chalking this up to not being to my taste. Lack of developed characters, the ridiculous and brusque ending, ongoing predictability contributed to my dislike. Intended to be a light hearted read, it was incredibly absurd, Rosie was easily lead, deficient of a backbone, not to mention lost at the ripe age of 44. Nothing more unattractive than a grown woman having had her head buried in the sand for most of her life. Rosie dear, you should have had your act together earlier on and had goals. Duh!
A story of second chances, but when you’ve lived your life on your terms, to the fullest, second chances aren’t needed. Like the saying goes…Life is not a dress rehearsal. Not a book for everyone, too many really great ones to enjoy. I’m left with readers remorse.
