While You Were Dreaming.

While You Were Dreaming By Lola Jaye.

Lena has always kept her two sisters Millie and Cara in check.

Beautiful but lazy Millie relies on her sister Lena for everything. She needs to pull herself together and get a job but is constantly distracted by the string of men in her life.

Cara runs a successful bar with her adoring boyfriend Ade. He can't wait to start a family but is Cara ready? Will she ever be?

But when Lena is involved in an accident, her sister's forget their own issues and rush to her side. As they desperately try to wake Lena from her deep sleep, they begin to learn things they never knew about themselves, and discover their much-loved sister has a few secrets in her closet.

.... From the back cover.

A fairly standard 'holiday' read which I'm sure will appeal to those who like their novels 'pink, fluffy' and sugar coated with slight undertones of Cinderella (well, there is a shoe, if not a glass slipper, involved) and Sleeping Beauty.

The, at times, far fetched plot was easy to follow - young woman falls downstairs and ends up in hospital which results in almost all of her family and friends becoming 'better' people, whilst the characters were, without exception, one dimensional and lacking in any depth.
