Spellbound – Jane Green

Easy chick lit reading, and a complete contrast from Kinsey Millhone, P.I., although the later chapters of the book are set in the USA (NYC and Connecticut rather than California mind you).

The gist of the story is: Plain Jane gets swept of her feet by long lusted after (from afar) friend of her brother and now wealthy City slicker, who transforms her into a sophisticated and doting wife who turns a blind eye on his philandering ways until their move to the US changes their world and their lives…..

Not at all a strenuous brain work out and I didn’t find it emotionally evocative as Bookends, for example, but that’s probably because I have no links at all to the fabulously wealthy world in which the story is set. Although the pace is a bit slow compared to most chicklit, Spellbound it a fatter book than many.
