    Lighthearted & Enjoyable

    This is a wonderfully light hearted read which will resonate with many long time marrieds. Like all of us there’s one habit of our other half that really grinds, for Lucy it’s toothpaste smears and the inability to replace the cap. That aside she’s struggling with menopause, libido and keeping the spark alive and her husband has thrown her life in a tailspin by persuading her, against her great misgivings, into moving from the family home into a cottage which is barely habitable. This is a very easy book to get into and Lucy is a very identifiable character, her husband Leo isn’t as easy to understand, you can understand Lucy’s frustration with him however it was hard to figure where the desire to uproot came from. Lucy’s neighbour Patsy is quite marvellous and I found her amusing however I couldn’t truly see Lucy’s attraction to Will beyond that of a crush based on his physical appearance. Overall though the story flowed well and the conclusion will thought out.

    Quite an enjoyable read.

    Is Lucy and Leo Jones marriage broken? They have successfully raised their children and Leo is insistent on purchasing a small cottage. Lucy is hardly excited by the prospect. As a matter of fact, she isn't very excited about the marriage itself. Concerned that she might be going through the change, Lucy has no idea where the extra energy might come from if they buy the cottage, as it will need a lot of work. From Lucy's first-person perspective, her thoughts and worries float through the pages. With Lucy's thought process and humor liberally peppered throughout, this was a really fun read. I was rooting for Lucy to get past her current crisis and for her and Leo to be able to relight the joy they no doubt had once before. As if that was not enough of a challenge, when their children show up wanting to move back home, everything truly goes off the rails. This is my second book by Debbie Viggiano and I really enjoyed it. I sat down and read it in one sitting in just a few hours. One of the draws was because as a mother with grown children in some ways I felt that I could relate to Lucy. I look forward to reading more from this author. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review in exchange for my honest opinion.

    A great read

    Leo and Lucy Jones have been married for twenty-five years,and with their three grown children out of the house Leo is convinced the family home is to big for just the two of them. Leo begins to try to convince Lucy to sell the home and buy up rose cottage. Lucy is adamant that she's not selling their home and moving into a cottage that is in dire need of fixing up. Unfortunately for her ,circumstances arise that force her to reconsider. Leo finds himself made redundant after thirty years with the same company,and he is able to convince Lucy to give rose cottage a chance. Once they have finally have moved into the cottage,instead of slowing down and retiring Leo, has decided to take a high level position with a new company. Lucy is shocked when he tells her he has to be in America for a month for training,and she is livid when she realizes she will have to be the one to handle the renovations. One look at their new contractor Will Peter's she knows she's in trouble. A hot man hanging around doing repairs on her cottage is all she needs while starting hormone therapy. And if she needs any more complications her youngest daughter is having her own personal crisis and needs to move back home. And the final straw for Lucy is when she learns that not only is Leo's personal assistant interested in her husband,but their new neighbor Sally is too. This is such a fun read I finished it in one sitting. I wanted to see how Lucy would handle all the chaos going around her,and if she would be able to keep her menopausal mood swings in check while trying to get her home renovated. I really enjoyed all the characters in this book,Patsy Sally's old neighbor and Jessica her youngest daughter were two of my favorite characters. They added some pretty great laugh out loud moments while reading this book. If you're looking for a fun summer read,I suggest picking this one up. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
