The group felt that we are not representative of this very successful author's core readership. Opinion varied between finding the women portrayed as independent and able to cope with any situation to the book being predictable and romantic. It was a very easy read about running canal boats, and would make a good book to take away on a summer holiday. 4.5/10 Camberley library Monday morning book group
