Make or Break Kindle Edition
Romantic comedy with a twist in its tail, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Louise Pentland.
Jess, a 29-year-old Londoner with a Kate Beckett fringe and a tendency for dramatics, gets taken on a surprise trip by her long-term boyfriend, Pete, to attend her best friend’s last-minute wedding in South Africa. Jess imagines sun, sand, wine and safaris. And returning to London with an ethically mined diamond on her left hand...
But this holiday isn’t set to be quite the fairy tale Jess has planned... Suddenly she finds her world tilting on its axis, and things are only set to get worse when Jess returns home…
When the truth comes out, will it be... Make or Break?
Catherine Bennetto is back with her trademark wit and an equally hilarious cast of characters who will have you rooting for them from the first page.

They say a change is as good as a holiday, right?
Well, for Jess, a holiday changes everything.
Boy, does everything change for Jess when she heads to Cape Town with her boyfriend for her best friend's wedding.
Firstly - ugh, don't get me started on the douchenozzle of a boyfriend Pete is and I disliked him from the first minute we met him.
Jess is all kinds of paranoid and scaredy-cat and omg I just wanted to shake some fun into her at times.
I liked that Make or Break was set in Cape Town, somewhere I have not come across a book being set before. Kinda gave me a hankering to visit.
Jess's family is complicated, and man forget the boyfriend, no wonder Jess rides the crazy train! I don't want to give anything away, but wowsers! These people!
They will Make or Break Jess!
Things do really turn out for the better with this holiday though, as much as it doesn't feel like they will.
I did find that the pacing of this book at times was a little slow, however I was completely involved in this story, so it did not bother me that much.
This book was also a lot more emotional than I was expecting. I did find myself reading through watery eyes a few times as things came to pass.
I spent the afternoon on the coach devouring Make Or Break. I laughed, I cried, I yelled at my book.
I am keen to see what Ms Bennetto bring us next.

Catherine Bennetto’s pen is mightier than Love Island - David Attenborough mash-up: with tanned, sexy, beach-party-goers, Africa’s big game, “lezzer-spotted” newly-weds and a good view of the mating game.
The light and enjoyable read has a lot of heart. When Jess’s life goes through a plot twist, bigger than Kim Kardashian’s gluteus maximus, she doesn’t know if it’s her over-dramatic imagination or for real.
This wonderful inclusive LOL gem, is the perfect escape with hot love, passion, frustration, heartache and betrayal on a back drop of attractive, funny and cool characters set in London and Cape Town.
It’s left me eager to holiday in culturally rich, hot and seductive Cape Town; if its tourist board didn’t commission this book, they owe the author big time, for the increase in holiday visitors that’s bound to follow.
At points it made me laugh out loud, happy, cry, be angry, confused, question peoples loyalty to each other, it did not always go the way I imagined. The only disappointment is that the book ended
I have read both books from this author and look forward to reading more from her in the future.
