not the gangster tales I look for from Cole. Also Lisa Coleman reads like storytime. not convincing. much prefer Annie Aldington but even she couldn't have made this book enjoyable. other than dying, nothing ever happens to the loathsome central character
I normally like Martina Cole and have read most of her books but I found this one awful, the storyline was too mixed up and did not 'flow' you were constantly reminding yourself who Celeste was and who she was married to Jamie or Jimmy. The narrator on this book was very irritating with the most appalling cockney accent, which is a shame as I doubt I would go for another Martina book as I was so disappointed in this one

This is the second book that I have read from the author Martina Cole. I felt that I needed to "give her a chance" as Ms. Cole would no doubt have said in her books. If you are fourteen years old (and I don't mean to be rude to fourteen year olds} then I am sure that you will find this book very entertaining as it would have a lot of swearing and teenage fiction. I felt that Ms. Cole writes a book using the same phrases and situations time and time again. Does she have a catalogue of sentences which she uses to puff out a book and collect the royalties. The book is a complete waste of time and it would be a lot cheaper to buy a copy of a weekly "women's magazine". There is no substance to the book especially a book for intelligent adults. A complete waste of money and time.
