Claire has everything she ever wanted: a husband she adores, a great apartment, a good job. Then, on the day she gives birth to her first baby, James tells her that he's having an affair. Claire is left with a beautiful newborn daughter, a broken heart, and a body that she can hardly bear to look at. So, in the absence of any better offers, she decides to go home to her family in Dublin. Sheltered by the love of her quirky family, and the attention of an incredibly attractive younger man, Claire gets better. A lot better. In fact, so much better that when James slithers back into her life, he's in for a surprise.

Great easy reading book. Watermelon is full of emotional twists and turns. Heartbreak, and bewilderment lead to a happy re-discovery of family ties.

Claire the main character discovers meaning of her family when she is left with a new-born baby on her own. This leads to a journey of self discovery. You live the book through the eyes of the main character and see as her life changes.

Watermelon by Marian Keyes, is well written and an enjoyable comical read. As always Marian keyes provides us with a good classic Chick-literature book which is hard to put down!
