Is Having Doubts So having doubts so spends almost the whole book arguing over itIt just isn t as strong plotwise as the first book was Personally I don t understand people who spend over a thousand pounds on a bag The most I ve spent is twenty uid Because of that the plot seemed unrealistic to me and it was the same thing all through the book Annie spends The Mommy Makeover lots of money boyfriend gets mad Throw in the odd misunderstanding and a few funny moments with Connor the gay best friend and that s it The characters are stillikable but the plot not so much You should probably try the first one before reading this because it is much better The storyline was good but in all honesty I didn t warm to the central character and I found her a bit annoying and ten Annie Valentine was even annoying and pathetic than she was in the first book I don t know what Ed sees in he.
