In America, Plan B is the brand name for emergency contraception, and their tag line is "For when things don't go as planned". If ever there was a sentence to summarize this story, that would be it. I like Emily Barr's books, although after a few you can start to predict some of the ... Read review

Oh What A Tangled Web We Weave…

When all else fails - there's always Plan B!

Advantagesabsorbing read

Disadvantagesnone

"...better. However, having just read Plan B, they do get better and I was totally absorbed in this story from the moment I picked the book up! Emily Barr is such a good storyteller and she hooks you from the very start so that you don't want to stop reading. I found myself snatching odd moments in the day to pick this book up, and now that I've finished it I'm almost disappointed as I didn't want to stop reading. The main character in the book is Emma ..." Read review
