One-hit Wonder – Lisa Jewell

Selected as the light-weight option in today’s 5 book haul from the newly reopened Battersea Library, this chick-lit (not quite that, but it’s the closest pigeon hole) novel didn’t even last 24 hours – it was that gripping.

It took a while to get going, but once the lead character, Ana, is in London things step up a gear and it’s a page-turner, roller-coaster of discovery from there on in. And a great, neat, tear jerker of an ending.
