★★★½The first half of this book is awful! Darcy is one of the most vile characters I have encountered in a book, and she is the heroine. She is self-absorbed, amoral, deceitful and vindictive. She is an all round awful person. She cheated on her fiance, her lover leaves her and her friends have all abandoned her. And that's the first half of the book. At the lowest point in her life and pregnant, she travels to London to stay with a childhood friend and hopefully get her life in order. The second half of this book is great. It's both satisfying and uplifting. How much did I love the second half? Well I came very close to giving this book 4 stars even though 50% of it was a complete train wreck for me.
