Review

 
What happens in Vegas normally stays in Vegas ... but not in this case! Jenny Sparrow Knows The Future sees a Vegas affair travel the globe and wind up in London. Only Jenny Sparrow has no idea that something so life changing actually happened.
 
Convinced by her friend to visit Vegas for a weekend, Jenny lets her hair down when her long term partner Christopher suggests they take a break. Devastated by this suggestion Jenny says sod it to the world and indulges in a few too many drinks in a Vegas bar. Only before the end of the night she disappears with a man who works at her hotel.
 
Surprises are not always a good thing and discovering you have a husband, with no memory of the wedding, is way up on the top of the list of worst possible surprises. Anticipating an impending proposal from Christopher, Jenny tries everything she can to get her 'husband' to divorce her. But since he travelled across the globe to find her, the chances seem slim.
 
Jenny Sparrow Knows The Future has earned a 3 star review from me because I feel it is very long winded and in all honesty a little dull.
 
A large element of the story is that Jenny has to spend a week of dates with her new husband, Jackson, before a divorce is even contemplated. An odd arrangement which could theoretically become quite an exciting and disastrous plot, the routine is very samey as Jenny finds an excuse to go out every night and then tells a pack of lies to cover her tracks.
 
Throughout the story I feel sorry for Christopher as he trusts Jenny despite the huge web of lies she is spinning to cover up her big mistake. The anger she feels towards him for being slightly suspicious is uncalled for, a tad unrealistic, and to be honest adds to the insufficiency of how the plot pans out.
 
I love the idea of the general plot and think it could become a really fantastic book. However, the long drawn out story with a repetitive nature means I won't be scoring the book any higher than 3.
