Emily Barr - Jetlag


Emily Barr - Jetlag

Every book by Barr I wonder why I still read her stories. It gets worse every time. It appears she has found her niche in the market; there are apparently many readers, presumably women, who think Barr is a great writer.

I’d like to see myself as not very prejudiced. I also think that I should at least give every book a try, even if it is obviously aimed at women. But I have to say that this is the last book by Barr I have bought. It was already heavily discounted when I bought it, so I decided to give her another chance. The previous book wasn’t exactly a hit with me either.

Barr always throws in some travels. Not different this time. The main character, Evie, has a stalker. After a divorce, her former husband seems the most obvious choice for culprit. But is he disappointed enough to actually start threatening her?

Evie flies to New York to get away from trouble, but trouble seems to have followed her.

Bad plot, simple chicklit, not something that will be on my shelf in a few years time.

Quote: “My experience, based on statistics, that there is a good possibility that your husband is behind this, how incredible this may seem.” (p.102)
