Did I have what it took to finish this?

Whatever It TakesWhatever It Takes by Adele Parks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ve read several Adele Parks novels and the writing on Amazon about this one made it sound a good read, the story of Eloise who moves to love in the country nearer to the in-laws and to live a quieter life. However Eloise suddenly has to contend with her best friends infertility and a mother-in-law struggling with dementia.

It is a slow moving read this one, I found many of the characters quite clear to see through from the outset. Sara, Eloise’s best friend struggling with fertility issues is a horrible character and the whole build up storyline in the book is incredibly transparent and clear very early on. I didn’t find that ‘gosh I didn’t see that coming’ moment. Instead I found myself flicking past whole paragraphs ad finding I wasn’t missing much. It wasn’t that gripping.

It was a pleasant enough read but lacked sparkle.
