THE GUILT TRIP
St Martins Press, Mintaur Books
I was looking forward to reading this book after I read all the great reviews. 3 couples go away to Portugal to celebrate one of their weddings. Of course, thing don’t go as expected.
Sadly, I was disappointed… it did not take long to remind me of a tedious soap opera. The interactions of the couples, the snide remarks just irritated me.
In fact, all of the couples irritated me. Perhaps I have chosen to read this book at the wrong time. I definitely do not feel the same as other reviewers. But, I kept slogging along until I was almost finished.
Then, a bit of redemption at the end. I hung in long enough.
I’ve always said that not every book is not for everybody. I know many would enjoy this as a beach read that is full of drama. I am just not that person.
Thank you to NetGalley for the advance readers copy.
