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…

AdvantagesInteresting and unusual story, well written

DisadvantagesBizarre / unrealistic / confused at parts

" 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 details because they all stick to the same vague formula. Each thus far has included a British girl with an relatively interesting past spending at least some of the ..." Read review

Rural bliss?

AdvantagesGood escapist read with plenty of authentic travel details

DisadvantagesSome predictable plot twists, ending seemed a bit pat

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

Emma adores living in Brighton, but she loves Matt more.
