This is definitely my type of book! From the first paragraph, I was seriously hooked!
If you love a good rom-com with substance, then this is absolutely a book that I recommend for you.
I know they say, “Never judge a book by it’s cover“, but you have to admit that the cover is wonderfully bright & cheerful and I’m happy to say that, so is the content inside – just the tonic we need for these, long, dark November nights.
Have a peek at the synopsis;
First we meet Alison, and I have to say, I fell in love with her character immediately, literally on page 1, I found myself defending her against the old fashioned, male chauvinistic views she was being subjected to.
I also felt sorry for her situation, she’s a wife of 20 years and mother to twins, who is excited on embarking on her dreams and goals, she has a difficult life and I couldn’t wait for her to have enough and stand up for herself.
I wasn’t too sure about Christopher at first, but her grew on me, when we meet him, he’s a married working man, spending lots of time from home, trying to support his family but seems tired of working away most weeks, and wants some stability.
This book deals with serious issues such as, toxic work environments, what we sacrifice for those we love, relationships, men and women’s place in society, the importance of self-care and much more, but still manages to be so funny!
It’s fast-paced and gripping – it’s one of those books that make you say, “just a couple more pages” when you know you should be going to bed or starting the dinner 😉
Oh, I forgot to say, that this book is based in the UK , which made it ultra-relatable.
