Review

**AMAZON #1 BESTSELLER**

Literally a laugh out loud kind of book!

Just don't start reading it an hour before bed Gia Scott (Vine Voice)

A very funny peek into the life and mind of Cathy, housewife, mum and frustrated woman. Highly recommended! --Michele Gorman, Best-selling author of THE CURVY GIRLS CLUB

Bored stay at home mother, Cathy, finds her predictable routine upturned as she investigates a lipstick-covered love postcard sent to husband, Declan. Who is this mysterious La La? Could Declan really be having an affair? And - wait - is Cathy actually being stalked?

With all her friends hiding secrets, a sexy admirer igniting long-forgotten sparks, and the stress of organizing the school's Save The Toilets dance, soon it's not only Cathy's marriage that's in jeopardy. Add in the scheming antics of Declan's new assistant and a possible murderer on the scene and the stage is set for a dangerous showdown and some very unsettling, even deadly, revelations.

5* Comedy Drama Murder + More. Packed with humour (The Toilet Dance did have me intrigued). Laughs galore but also a murderous undertone. From romps with those that should not be romped with to accidents that should never happen a read that carries itself right from the start to finish. --Alessi Lover, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

Go on an amazingly funny, brilliant and entertaining ride with Cathy and her crazy cast of friends and neighbors! --Mrs Mommy Booknerd 

You are quickly drawn into this very unpredictable, well thought out story, full of mystery, gossip and secrets which keeps you guessing right to the last chapter. --ElaineG (Amazon Top 100 Reviewer)

Filled with great characters and hilarious, yet believable scenes. I highly recommend Looking for La La if you need a good laugh! --Christy's Cozy Corners

This is a very good read about a woman, Cathy, who is at that stage in life where the kids are both at school and all the other mums around her in the school playground all seem to be getting jobs and leaving her behind as the only stay at home mum. She has that feeling, which all mothers have had at around about that time, of being undervalued, taken for granted and bored to tears. She knows she really should get a job, but she just doesn't want to.

Cathy is a fantastic character and there are bits of her that I recognised in myself as well as my friends. She is gossipy, funny, sarcastic and she has never learned to keep it zipped, especially when she has had a drink. That is when a lot of her problems start - she gets drunk and opens her big mouth and out pops either a huge whopper or the one personal bit of information that she knows deep down that she really should not be sharing.

She longs for excitement in her life and when the sexy postcards from La La arrive addressed to her husband, she thinks that now it has arrived. We join her as she starts on a quest to unearth the identity of La La who even her husband, Declan, claims he doesn't know the identity of. I loved the moment where she is wandering into the school playground looking at all the mums and feeling really chuffed just because she is the one who has managed to get a husband who is so hot that other women fancy him.

Her quest twists and turns throughout the book which starts to take quite a dark, dangerous turn for Cathy, whose list of suspects keeps growing larger by the chapter. Who is trying to stab her in the back and drive a wedge between her and Declan? Can she trust any of her friends? Can she trust her husband? Can she trust herself?

You are quickly drawn into this very unpredictable, well thought out story, full of mystery, gossip and secrets which keeps you guessing right to the last chapter.

The cover image of a madcap lady with manic eyes peeping over a fence reminded me of myself on a particularly stressful bad hair day...maybe this could be a book I could relate to?

Looking for La La is the story of Cathy. A wife and mother struggling to retain her own identity in the hectic world of school runs, housework and other necessities of life, Cathy feels tired and unfulfilled. When flirtatious postcards addressed to her husband start arriving, Cathy feels even more threatened-could he be having an affair? Is someone trying to ruin their marriage? Or is it a joke that has got out of hand? Before long, Cathy is suspicious of everyone around her. Is there anyone she can really trust?

I must admit that it took me a while to get into this book, although I wonder if that is partly due to reading a similar book before hand. Yes, it is embellished and far fetched in places, but mothers in particular will be able to identify with Cathy's loss of identity-that feeling of being someone's wife, someone's mum and yet feeling detached from yourself as you seek to please everyone else.

I was getting very frustrated as the story progressed as I was desperate to know who La La was. I thought I had it worked out and then something would make me doubt myself. This definitely made me want to keep turning the pages as I'm not good at putting down an unsolved mystery! Part mystery, part chicklit, part women's fiction; Looking for La La touches on a variety of genres which is both a strength and a weakness. Whilst it has the potential to appeal to a variety of readers, I feel it is not a neat enough fit into any of these genres to really recommend to one specific target audience.

I enjoyed this book from the start. Cathy is a person that most of us can relate to. She’s stressed and tired, stuck at home bringing up two children while her husband works all hours. She would quite like to go back to work but tells herself she’d rather be at home as she lacks confidence.
The title intrigued me. We’re never quite sure who ‘La La’ is but the anonymous letters telling Cathy that her husband is having an affair keep us guessing as to the identity as we see all her friends through new eyes. Then there is the intrigue at her husband’s work, not to mention the ‘ Save the toilet’ campaign that she inadvertently takes on.
The setting and characters are the books great strengths. The story is light-hearted and will keep you guessing. All in all an enjoyable story and an easy read for dipping into.

Looking Fo La La starts very badly but persistence is rewarded - by the end I was actually enjoying it.
The disjointed prose was irritating and it needed to be professionally edited to eliminate the numerous grammatical errors (which I found distracting). I was not surprised to learn it had been self-published.

When I am reviewing books I don't like to give to much away, but I have to say this book BLEW me away!
It all starts with the arrival of a mysterious postcard that is the catalyst tonumerous life changing events.
This book had me hooked! It has drama, mystery, humour, romance and lot's of Laugh Out Loud moments.
Looking for La La kept me intrigued throughout and I grew to love Cathy's character, a stay at home Mum of two. She's exhausted, feeling unappreciated, and her life seems dull and uninteresting until the mystery postcard to her husband Declan turns Cathy and her best friend Raz into detectives. There is so many twists.

If you want a book that has so many emotions then this book is it. It's clever!
I have 6 colleges reading this book now and I'm sure they won't be disappointed.

Pam and Lorraine I cannot wait to read more of you two..
