About the Author
Fiona was born in a youth hostel in Yorkshire. She started working on teen magazine Jackie at age 17, then went on to join Just Seventeen and More!, where she invented the infamous 'Position of the Fortnight.' Fiona now lives in Scotland with her husband Jimmy, their three children and a wayward rescue collie cross called Jack. Jack's special talent is to nudge her hand off her mouse to announce that it's Walk Time. She is currently attempting to train for a marathon, but at present, Jack is outpacing her.

Kerry moves down with the children while Rob stays in London to sell their house. While in London Rob ends up sleeping with Nadine who is only 20years old and she is pregnant with his baby. So Kerry's world comes crashing down around her. The two children are trying to settle in too school life and make new friends while she is trying to keep everything together. Kerry also has to try and fit in with the snooty mums. But the children really want a dog so Kerry decides to get one for them. Kerry she an advert for a dog that needs re-homing and she ends up taking Buddy - who is not exactly well trained.
Kerry also decides to give music lessons from home which she finds she loves. She also has to deal with Rob keep ringing her up whenever things are not right for her - so can she really be happy in Shorling-On-sea?
I really liked this book and I always know that Fiona Gibson to going to give me a great read.
Another good thing is that the story plays about with the usual pattern and although Kerry and Rob split up, they don't end up with the partners you might think and the ending is more open than a lot of similar novels (clever how I don't give the ending away, eh?)
Buddy the dog is sort of the glue that holds a lot of the story together, but really it's Brigid, Harvey, James, Freddie, Mia and a host of minor Shorling-ites.
It is another "tuck your feet up and indulge in a read" book, but one of the superior ones.
Fiona Gibson writes with a light comic touch and a suitable depth of feeling that doesn't have you wallowing, but does warm the heart nicely. A book to relax into.
That said, I enjoyed reading it, it didn't take long and it was easy to get through. I found myself liking all the characters in the story, although it did end rather abruptly.
Overall, I would recommend this book. It's prompted me to download some other Fiona Gibson books, hopefully I will enjoy them too.
And it was good!
Fiona writes with great ease and you can instantly identify with the characters and the plot.
Very believable, very likeable & will definitely read another Gibson novel soon.
