I really enjoy Lynda Page books and this was my favourite so far.

All her books are like a big, comforting hug and this was no different. Really enjoyable. Apr 28, Mekerei rated it liked it. The Sooner The Better is the story of Izzie and her life as a spinster. She lives in Leicestershire with her brother, sister-in-law and their girls. It was a nice easy chit lit novel.

A women betrayed by a man, she changes her life, meets a nice man and they live happily ever after. Three stars. A girl's journey through difficult times. A good book. Finding herself through her kindness a whole new life. With various ups and downs along the way.

I have read several Lynda page, but this has been my least favourite. Having said that, it was still a reasonably good read. Bridget King rated it it was amazing Jan 23,
