But she knew the invitation to the thirty year reunion of her high school, St Agnes Ladies College would go into the trash.Kerry was determined to lo [...]

    2. Getting Even With Fran is the first novel by Australian author, Christine Stinson. On the day her husband of twenty years drops not one, but three bombshells that are certain to derail her seemingly perfect life, to make a lie of it all, Cecilia Stanton is shocked and angry.

Fran wants her to make a speech? Fine, [...]

    3. Really quite underwhelmed. Too many characters - I had lost track of who was who by the end, and worse, I didn't care. The ending was also a big fizzle out. I was expecting something more than the title and lead up would have you believe. It's well written, though a few things about various characters really annoyed me. Could have been so much better than it was.

    4. Having read (and loved) Stinson's second novel, I went in search of her first. This was an easy read, very much 'chick-lit' and ultimately, somewhat disappointing. Although some of the character portrayals were insightful and relatable, this came across as more of a book of short stories, linked by the theme of a school reunion. The ending felt rushed and unsatisfactory.

    5. Definitely a chick book. Warm, a bit sentimental but not too much. It was a good antidote to Brighton Rock which I finished the night before. Enjoyable portraits of Australian women in their late 40s.

    6. really enjoyed the frist half but found the second half rushed. Still did have a good giggle now and again which was nice.

    7. 4.5 stars! A great read about 7 women and the upcoming reunion from their high school, St Agnes. There are secrets, regrets, love, and loss. A really entertaining read.
