    Oh I loved this book It's the ultimate chick lit when you're looking for a light yet engaging read The story is about 3 women who reach a fitness bootcamp for 7 days what all they experience learn together apart from getting fitThe author actually attended a similar fitness bootcamp before she published just this book so you know it's uite realistic Am uite impressed Read my full review here My Review

    This was a great fun readAs a bootcamping bookworm I was really interested in reading this one to see how it compared with my own experiences The bootcamp I attend isn't a week long retreat like in this book it's a four evening a week kind of thing which fits in around my workI loved some of the uotes in this book The evils of burpees were exalted at every turn and I speak from experience when I say that yes they're evilI only wish the characters had felt of that unbearable pain that comes the first day after the most extensive workout of your life It was like they were a little bit sore and that was it After my first 45 minute session at my bootcamp I was taking painkillers and bracing myself for cold showers to dampen the pain for the whole of the next dayI particularly liked the way the results were shown The characters didn't realise it but they had changed Whether they'd taken control of their own lives or lost some weight or toned up or found love they weren't the same person they were when they started the week

    Seven days Six nights Three woman with extra heavy baggage and two ex military men and one big old manor house that is everything except for what was advertised Steph is a curvy beautiful woman with very low self esteem vicky is a round mum of three that wona ticket to the boot camp and Darcy is a news presenter whose career may as well soon be overAs these women build on their physiue – all for their own reasons they find themselves and ultimately the answers they were looking forI cannot really tell you about this book since I might give away than I want – And I hate spoilersI LOVED reading this book Yes I love chicklit So and? I loved reading this book on the tube and it has to be said that after being a few pages you just get sucked into the storyThese three women are also very different with very distinct and very well laid out voices It is often uite hard to write characters this different and let them come together in a way that does not take away the spotlight of their problems and their personality I think almost every women will find snippets of herself in this story which makes the whole experience so much personalI myself very much saw myself in Steph who was constantly brought down by her ex I had somewhat the same experience – thinking it was all your fault acting weird and losing control of your life losing direction and forgetting what you really like and want I was rooting for her and I loved reading every twist and turn that made her plot and story thickenOn the other hand I also loved the story of Darcy who might not be as shallow as she seems at first The war journalist the woman with the balls of steelThe one I liked least was the story of Vicky It might be a story that fits most woman reading these kinds of books – raising kids and being happy just being a good mom but it does not seem to grab me as much as the other two doThe style of writing and the hilarious uotes made me laugh out loud on the Jubilee line to Bond street and the story itself was fast paced and not self absorbed happens a lot in chicklit at allGoing to the library next week to look for books by this author455

    Got this book from the library since it seemed interesting and I wanted a good and easy read And I have to admit this book was really good It is full of humor some pages are than a great laugh it's also an easy and enjoyable read with a good insight into people's characters What got me confused at the beginning was the fact that it is written from different characters' points of view different characters are the narrators Stupid of me not to notice that at the very beginning especially that each chapter is entitled with the name of the character who is the narrator this time but still I did not like it at first But I uickly got used to it and reading the plot through different people's eyes gives you a uite wide perspective on different things Overall what I liked the most was the humor The book was just really funny

    This was a wonderful read It's about a group of women who meet at a very tough boot camp in Wales They are all there for different reasons Two of the women are boot camp groupies there to meet the fitness instructors The main three characters have to share a room as the hotel is not the luxurious building that they were expecting One is a new presenter who has been told she needs to compete with the younger girls who want her job one has won a luxury competition and has to blog her experiences and one wants to win back her old boyfriend They all have a dark part of their past that they've tried to block out Will they confront those issues whilst they are going through the tough boot camp?

    I loved this book am looking forward to reading from Kate Harrison The characters were like friends by the end of the book funny romantic and a whole lot of determination

    Brilliant fun read Although I wouldn't go to a boot camp myself Loved all the characters the story behind each boot camper was sensitively written

    When I first started reading this book it reminded me of Cecelia Ahern and Sophie Kinsella and I had really high hopes for it Ahern and Kinsella are fantastic modern women's fiction writers and because Harrison's writing style is so similar I had really high expectations for the book The first grammatical error I could let slide but the number of grammatical errors made the book fall below par for me and I was left slightly disappointedThe story itself was very enjoyable; I have never been to a boot camp and I found it a really good original story I initially thought the story would remain with Steph and was again disappointed when I hit Vicki's first chapter because I loved Steph straight away and wanted to stay with her but I ended up liking all three main female charactersHarrison has full potential to be one of the best writers in her field she just either needs to check her work far carefully or hire a better proof reader With no grammatical errors this would have been a really easy 5 Sadly the mistakes made it a less fluid read which tainted my enjoymentI would read a later book of Harrison's in the hope the errors lessen in her future novels For now the book is worth a 4 out of 5

    3 and a half stars from me Fun to read although it sounds uite unbearable for a non athlete like meWhat makes the boot camp and the novel work are the friendships and rivalries among the campersTwo ex suaddies as trainers are perhaps not what one expects at a supposedly luxurious retreatBut then luxury also seems to be in short supply
