characters The Adults

Sharing classified secrets about their pasts and before you know it their holiday is a powder keg that ends where this story starts with a tearful frightened call to the policeBut what happened They said they'd all be adults about thisIf you loved The Break by Marian Keyes or raved about The Rosie Project look no further than The Adult. This was OK I read it for the Popsugar Challenge uestion the one about reading two books with the same title So I still have to read and I hope it s better than this one I did laugh out loud a couple of times here but struggled with the characterizations The 2 guys were both babies while both women seemed almost saintly in comparison Claire was difficult to get to know and her daughter Scarlet while cute and precocious was overshadowed by her imaginary friend a big rabbit with whom she converses The rabbit named Posy had a much too large part in the book and frankly I got real tired of him or her not sure Also from the GR summary I expected some suspense Nope Just a story about 4 adults two are ex spouses and a child spending a 5 day weekend together to give Scarlet a good Christmas trying not to let their jealousies and self doubts ruin everything It was a struggle for them And probably for many readers
