    a five-star read that will make you flourish

    The Mum Who Got Her Life Back by Fiona Gibson a five-star read that will make you flourish. This was so funny and honest from the first page to the last. Having it set in Glasgow was great, I loved seeing the city from a different set of eyes. This one has it all, family, loneliness, passion and fun. Its and easy read and one that will appeal to many, give it a read as you won’t be disappointed.

    Over 40s romance set in Glasgow - very enjoyable

    After bringing up her twins practically single-handed after separating from their father when they were eleven years old, Nadia is looking forward to getting her life back when the twins go to university. A chance meeting in the Lush shop just before Christmas introduces Nadia to Jack, himself a single father, and they embark on a glorious passionate love affair. However, just because your children have gone to university doesn't mean they are adults, when Nadia's son Alfie drops out of university Nadia's new life comes crashing to a halt, suddenly there are dishes left in the sink, towels on the floor and empty toilet roll inners on the floor. There's no time for naked afternoons and things become tense between Nadia and Jack, especially with Alfie's rabid veganism. Jack runs a charity shop for a small group which supports animal rescue. On a daily basis he has to keep the peace between the various volunteers, some of whom are rather 'challenging'. He also looks after his young daughter on alternate weekends while worrying that his ex-wife may be verging on an alcoholic. This is a lovely romance for the over-40s. It is refreshing to have heroine as a fifty-one year old, also nice that she lives in Glasgow rather than London or Edinburgh, especially nice that she is a life model for a local art class despite her children's objections. Good that the hero and heroine have their own family issues to contend with, that balancing of needs of children, exes, family and friends that we all have to learn once we reach a certain age. I guess what I am trying to say is that this rang true as two adults with hectic lives and competing claims on their time and attention. I think this is my first book by Fiona Gibson but I will definitely look out for others as I enjoyed her writing style and deftly drawn characters. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
