January Book Review

Watermelon by Marian Keyes is about a young, first time mother who hears, “I’m leaving you,” from her husband the same day she gives birth to his child. He’s leaving her for another married woman who lives in their apartment building.

The opening caught my attention immediately. Then the book slowed down for me until the middle where it turn an interesting turn. The second half of the book was intriguing and fun and the wrap up was tidy and very satisfying.

I enjoyed the cast of characters and the surprises in the second half. A good fun read to be sure.
