I enjoyed this book, it featured many surprises along the way. I particularly loved how all the pieces of the metaphoric 'puzzle' came together. The character Margo, 'connected the dots' faster than I ever could. The novel certainly kept me on my toes. And some of the revelations were fairly amusing....
I realise that I'm only really speaking in proverbial phrases, but let that not keep you from purchasing this book.

It's a novel about a woman who is not afraid to break free and who provides an insight to the other characters to feel inclined to do something different, giving them opportunities. I have to say I loved how this book was so unique, there was no real cliché- it was better, more realistic and very unpredictable. At one point, I felt: who knows, maybe Margo and Jacques are related?

The reason I gave it four stars was because I felt it lacked in the background, we were immediately made to hate Alan. I wish we were provided with a more detailed back story, for example a certain traumatic event which kept playing in her mind. I would have liked for us to have seen his exact character, to enable us to judge for ourselves.

This is the fourth novel I have read by this author and I am definitely a fan. I won't go into details about the plot as this has been covered by many other reviewers. What I would say though is that this isn't quite the light and fluffy chick lit read I have come to expect from this author after having read Fresh Powder, Villa Caramel, and Silver Service. If chick lit books are the book equivalent of a chick flick film, then this book is more like the equivalent of a TV drama. It is a much deeper and more serious chick lit read. Please don't misconstrue this as a criticism, as I actually think it is an excellent book and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it but I think it is an important point to make as whether you will enjoy this will depend on what you are looking for. If you're looking for a nice and fluffy beach read, then go for one of the other books by this author mentioned earlier (all of which are great)but if you like you're chick lit a bit meatier and more serious, then go for this one. Either way, be sure to check out some of Susanne O'leary's work as she certainly writes great books!

Margo has been married for ten years when she finally gets enough of her husband's emotional abuse. He blows up at her one time too many and, without making any plans, she simply walks away at a rest stop in France. From there Margo learns how to make her way in the world and discovers what she really wants out of life. Over a period of months she grows as a person and learns she can survive even when she's removed from her former life of privilege.

The setting and the customs of France were really interesting to me since I've never been there. The characters were well-drawn and all of them, including Margo, had their flaws as well as their good points.

Although there were no real surprises in the plot, the solid writing and the characters drew me in and I stayed up late finishing the book, which came to a satisfying conclusion. Ms. O'Leary is a talented writer, and I look forward to reading more of her books.

Some may think it as a strange claim, but I see "Finding Margo" as a coming-of-age story. Margo's emotionally abusive and controlling husband and her efforts to please him have in many ways stilted her growth into adulthood. When she reaches her breaking point and leaves him while in a foreign country she has no plan - she just has to escape. What follows is Margo "finding herself" in all the ways that cliché implies. Margo learns to take care of herself, stand up for herself, and make decisions for herself, all against a cultural backdrop as foreign to Margo as it will be for many readers. An excellent read.

Finding Margo is a story about a unhappily married woman who chooses the unknown over the unhappiness and sets out to start her life over.

When Margo married Alan, she truly loved him. Yet at some point over the course of the last ten years, he started to change. No longer the kind and caring man she married, Alan has become a verbally abusive jerk.. after a particulary bad argument in the car one day, the two stop for gas, and Margo walks away. With little more than the clothes on her back, she decides to risk it, and find more purpose in her life.

Margo finds herself a job, some new friends, and a newfound love for life. As Margo begins to feel her freedom, she also begins to realize how truly unhappy she had been in her marriage.

"Finding Margo" is a story about courage and strength; about listening to your inner heart rather than your brain sometimes. It's about not giving up and not being afraid to take risks. And its definitely chick lit I was entertained, thought a few times I did find my mind wandering. The story was somewhat predictable, though there were a few pieces to the puzzle I didn't put together on my own which is always a good thing. I like surprises...

Of the three Susanne O'Leary books I've read so far, this is by far my favourite.

In my view, the author has worked harder in this book to create not only an intriquing plot, but characters who are much more rounded and appealing. The writing is better - more professional - and so is the editing. The French countryside is beautifully rendered, the scenes in Paris are evocative and atmospheric. The themes are slightly more serious than in the other books of hers I have read, a plus, and this helps the book to stand a little higher than the usual chick-lit offerings I see on Kindle. A five star read for me.
