My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As usual, I have NetGalley to thank for this ARC
Knowing that this was a sequel book I did wonder how much i would need to catch up on to be up to speed with this one. The answer is not at all. Whilst you dive straight in there is more than enough to help you understand the current situation, so it works perfectly as a standalone book. That being said, I have already added the previous book – I don’t know how she does it to my reading pile.
This is the story of Kate Reddy, middle-aged, broke, and struggling to cope with various aspects of co-parenting with an easily unlikable husband. There’s lies, deceit and just the right amount of romance for it to be a lovely story.
Interestingly there’s so much of Kate’s life that I sympathized with, and connected to although I’ve not experienced the things she was going through – Married, Nope, Kids, Nope, Menopause, nope, Lying about my age, not yet! The writing style helped you feel for Kate, and want to be her friend.
