  • Such a Fun, Sparkling Read!

    This is a fun, sparkling read! However, as we all know, every family has it's problems... Ray is the love of Denise's life; she has adored him for over forty years, putting him first ahead of everything - even their own children. So with his death, where does that leave her now? Claire, Denise's daughter, has always been well aware that she doesn't count in her mother's eyes. Claire vowed to always put her own children first and foremost in life, even if it cost her her marriage. Now she's an empty nester, she misses her two sons more than words can say - but just because they're no longer under her roof doesn't mean to say she doesn't fret about them. So, how has life treated this mother and daughter with differing ideals? This is such a great book! Every single woman - with children or without - will be able to identify with at least one character. And, trust me, there are some really lively characters in these pages! Set in Glasgow I have, as a Scot, absolutely loved the humour and have had to cease reading several times to wipe the tears of mirth from my eyes! Author Shari Low has a real gift for getting the narrative spot-on! The premise is entirely believable, and I'm not sure it's possible to complete this one without feeling empathy for both the main characters. With more than a touch of sadness and many, many laughs, this is a really entertaining and fun read. Note to self: must read much, much more of this author's work! Really well-written with a satisfying story and fabulous characters, I raced through this one giggling my head off. Oh, to have friends like Claire's! Every woman deserves a Jeanna in her life - trust me, we'd all feel better for it. Undoubtedly, a sparkling five star read!

  • Boring and poorly written

    After seeing that this novel has a 4 star rating, I read the preview and decided to purchase. I tried to get into the storyline, but this book is so poorly written with grammatical issues, cliched description and character development that left me feeling bored. I picked up the book for three days, trying to get into it, but then decided I really wasn’t enjoying it.

  • A Wonderful Read

    *** Thank you, NetGalley for the advance copy to review*** Description This is... Denise. Married to Ray, her first and only love, Denise has never for one moment regretted putting the husband she idolized on a pedestal above everyone and everything else. But, after forty years of marriage, he is gone, leaving Denise to discover that their perfect marriage was fatally flawed. Now she faces a future alone, but first, she must face the betrayals of the past. This is... Claire. The estranged daughter of Denise, the woman who put her husband before her children, Claire took the opposite path and devoted her life to raising her family, sacrificing her marriage along the way. With her teenage sons about to flee the nest, she realizes she may have left it too late to find her own happy ever after. This is the story of two women, both alone, both cautionary tales of one of motherhood's biggest decisions. Who is more important, your partner or your children? And what happens if you make the wrong choice? I thought the book was pretty good. It was marketed as Young Adult. Claire and her daughter Were polar opposites I see Denise thought her way was the only way. There are ways to change for both.

    Thanks for your feedback!
