STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Joyous: Left me utterly enamelled
🧡 There are some books, some characters whose company is pure happiness. I’m thinking of Diary of a Bookseller, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill, The Rosie Project, and this. The characters are endearing, the outlook is positive, the humour dry. All good stuff. Enjoyed every second.
💚 Things I enjoyed in particular were the teeth metaphor for not taking itself too seriously and the sisterly plot. As one of three sisters, it resonated.
Big thanks to NetGalley and Bolinda Audio for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 Scarlett Mack’s comedy chops are on full beam throughout. Loved her wit and comic timing and she was a major part of why I enjoyed listening.
🎧 This was a decent length listen for the genre, at almost 9 hours and a very easy listen. Could happily have this on while doing errands without getting lost.

Ellis’s life has crumbled without warning. Her boyfriend has fallen in love with someone else, her job’s insecure, her bank account’s empty and she has a mouthful of unreliable teeth. Forced back to her childhood home, there is little in the way of comfort. Her mum is dating a younger man (a dentist, no less) and is talking of selling the house; her sister, Lana, is furious all the time; and a distant cousin has now arrived from the States to stay with them.
During a long, hot Edinburgh summer, Ellis’s world spins out of control. She’s dogged by toothaches, her ex won’t compensate her for the flat and somehow she’s found herself stalking his new lover on Facebook.
Will Ellis realise before it’s too late that the bite she was born with is worth preserving?
