Thank you for thinking of me when you bought that Jill Mansell book, Miranda's Big Mistake. It was the sort of book I love: women's lit with a revenge story line. What a shame the book sucked so badly.
Oh Gawd, the women in this book were such gits. Miranda was ridiculous. First she meets Greg who just happens to be married (separated) from his pregnant wife. They fall madly in love in like... no time at all. Then she meets his wife and gets engaged to him and then finds out the truth and they trick him and it was a yawn.
Then she meets another man. It's twue wuv and after a week of twue wuv he dies in a car accident.
Then she ends up with the guy she should have been with in the first place.
Every other woman in the book meets the perfect man and it's all twue wuv. Seriously though Carol, these women were absolute gits.
The pregnant woman is a complete doormat and even though she's shown as growing (and meets her twue wuv too) at no time does she kick her ex hub's ass as he deserves. She doesn't really do anything honestly. None of the women do really. They get treated badly by men, they get treated badly by other women and well, they're just gits.
Seriously, any man falling in love with these gits gets what he deserves.
