Although the look and feel of chic lit it'll really get your emotions rushing about - this is chic noir! It's got some very dark moments in a compelling story of a woman who lives a rather manic existance being godmother to her friend's children. The least maternal person in the world possibly has to deal with a wide range of children and how their lives and their parents inpact on her own life.

This was horrific to read in parts - and I did have to go and get a glass of water before coming back to it. The story is compelling and one of true friendships stretched to the limit, and showing that you can't always be there for your friends, or even see what's really going on.

A gripping read but one that will also make you feel uncomfortable.
