See rule eight about sick mom.10. Never forget the rules.

‘The Rule Book’ is definitely one of the more enjoyable reads I’ve had in a while, worthy of all the crazy (if not always realistic) antics of a typical romantic comedy.


Cleverly written with shades of Bridget Jones klutziness in it, I liked the humour, the absolutely believable lead characters, and even the antagonists because they didn’t magically turn into honey and lovingkindness. My only quibble – which I’ve surprised even myself by saying – is the sudden but very surprising slam of the bedroom door in my face after all the build-up and the fantasising that got me hot and bothered.
