I gave this 4 stars (really liked it). It was quite hard to read though because the story was going backwards.

Going back to reading Ghosts Of Christmas Past.

Do you think that's because the story was told backwards? I felt like there was no conclusion mostly because of that.

Hmm, I don't know. Maybe. There was definitely a feeling of lack of conclusion. Which of hers is your favourite book?

Yeah somehow don't think I'm going to read the Cat book :P Have begun Peggy and me by Miranda Hart about her and her dog-more my cuppa tea.

I have no idea which of hers is my favourite, I don't think I've read any that I haven't liked although I haven't read the ones she wrote with her daughter. Do you have a favourite?

I don't think I've read any of hers that I didn't like although like you I haven't read the ones she wrote with her daughter. I'd say Second Glance or Nineteen Minutes would be high up on my list.

Nineteen Minutes was very hard hitting.

Very much so. The way she managed to humanise all characters concerned was interesting.
