In The Bow Wow Club, we again meet up with Ruby, who has experienced a shocking bereavement and is struggling to come to terms with what has happened, as well as questioning whether she will be happy again. As Ruby struggles with adjusting to life, she meets the handsome Michael Bell, who shakes her life up even more. Ruby volunteers at The Bow Wow Club (Boyfriends of Widows, Wives of Widowers) in the hope that it might help her and give her a bit of support.
I really thoroughly enjoyed The Bow Wow Club. I read the book in two sittings and it was the type of book that was very difficult to be parted from once I had picked it up.
This book really took me on a rollercoaster of emotions, Nicola May has done very well in writing scenes in this novel as she brought out a whole range of emotions from me. There are some very emotional and moving scenes, and though I won't go into it in detail as I don't want to spoil it for you, there were a few times where I was reaching for the tissues.
But don't worry, it's not all sad. In fact, most of the book is HILARIOUS! I spent a lot of time tittering and giggling away on the sofa, emerging red-faced from the pages where I was laughing so much.
Ruby is such a fantastic character, you can't help but warm to her, and I really enjoyed continuing a journey with her and being with reunited with her character in this book. I LOVED the time I spent with Ruby and I'd go as far to say that I would really love another book with Ruby in...there is just something about Ruby and her friends that is so addictive and fun and I just wanted to spend all my time reading about them!
The Bow Wow Club is an excellent book that is full of so much fun and laughter! There are some truly brilliant twists and turns that I didn't see coming...wow! And as well as the funny moments, there are a few heartfelt scenes that will touch you. This book is unique, it is unpredictable and I would very much recommend it!
