What they say:
Just when you thought you had it all worked out …
Best friends Lisa and Felicity think – maybe, just maybe – they finally have everything sorted out in their lives.
Lisa is in a happy relationship with her old flame, and busy mum Felicity has managed to reignite the passion with her husband, Pete after a romantic getaway.
But when Lisa walks in on a half-naked woman in her boyfriend’s flat and Felicity is left reeling from a shocking discovery, it becomes clear that life is nothing but full of surprises …
The Review: There are some words that I see as I read and immediately I know I can settle down and enjoy (simultaneously inwardly jumping about in excitement). (Note: these words are “kids,””running, “”dog walking” and “pet sitting.”) Lo and behold in this book we have all of these sentiments and a mention of The Vicar Of Dibley so hello-happy out!) as we meet Felicity (I think possibly this is more of Lisa’s story but we’ll head to Flick first because she lives in a house of chaos with four kids (like me!) and she loves running (like me!) I was as shocked and worried as Flick as she realised that there might be a few changes in the house. I loved the craziness of the house but felt for Lisa as she began to feel she was losing herself.
I’ll be honest, as usual I’d forgotten what the book was about as I read but I think that helps here as it lets the book go anywhere. I loved the mystery surrounding Lisa’s life as she worries about a woman and child in her boyfriend’s life. I flew through this book, an easy read that pulled me out of a slump as I smiled along, chuckling in places and nodding along. I’ll admit I probably should have read the first in this series as I went and checked halfway through as characters were mentioned but saying that it was fine to read as a standalone. Very enjoyable and the author is most definitely bookmarked as one I will follow in the future. Beyond recommended!
