This Charming Man by Marion Keyes. I've read just about all Keyes' books and enjoyed them all. Funny Irish chicklit. This one, however, is testing my patience. The style it's written in is very annoying. It's a bit like Bridget Jones on steroids. In fact, it's so much like Bridget Jones that, as I'm reading, I can hear Renee Zellweger in my head. Pronouns, prepositions and conjunctions have been thrown out the window which makes for a very jerky read. There's also very little colloquial Irish. That has always made Keyes' other books so very charming and I'm missing it in this one.
I'm seriously considering not reading any further because I'm just not enjoying it.
