Product Description

Review

A page turner. Lizzie Buckley has a life many women would dream of.. but lately she's been fantasising about swapping lives with a single woman. When Lizzie hits 'send' on the wrong email everything starts to unravel. (EASTERN DAILY PRESS)

Lizzie seems to have the perfect life... but when she vents her frustrations with married life in an email, only to accidently send it to her husband, we begin to see the cracks. This is full of colourful characters and is the ideal holiday read. (PRIMA)

Book Description

A gorgeous debut romantic comedy about marriage, mistakes and mending them...

Format: Hardcover
I have a really low wince threshold - she almost lost me with the clingfilm, and after I'd bravely dived back in, the tanning debacle - more for Tessa than Lizzie - made me skip about two pages, because it was just too hideous to bear...

But that wasn't because either scene was unrealistic or not true to life - rather the reverse, they brought my own skeletons jangling to the front of the wardrobe. All those times when you fervently hope you'll look back and laugh, while suspecting you will never attain quite that degree of distance from the debacle.

Also, I kept wanting to punch James for being such an unbelievably un-understanding, stuck-up, pain of a man. Which, again, resonating with my own unbelievably un-understanding, stuck up, etc, etc.

Evelyn would really have got on with my first m-in-l - who, to the bitter end, called me 'the cheap date'. Mm.

It's a rare and to-be-treasured thing to feel quite so completely sisters under the skin with a fictional character that you wish she was real enough for you to check if her email address was genuine.

And the ending is just right. Picture perfect, with a little twist...

Format: Paperback
This is a women's fiction novel with a difference, it has everything that sets up for a good evening in front of the fire with a box of chocolates. The characters are so well explored and there is an immediate connection with all of them. The story line is so zany and upbeat. In all it is an inspirational novel and the dry witty sense of humour leads to a lot of out and out giggling. A must have for anyone into a good read!! . it is hard to believe this is her first novel. When is the next due out?

Format: Hardcover
This is an outstanding book from a first time novelist. I quickly came to think of Lizzie as a friend as her many roles in life (wife, mother, friend...) are so realistically portrayed. Parts are laugh out loud funny, and I laughed even more when I realized the same gaffes could easily befall me. It was such a refreshing read, I didn't put it down-- I read it cover to cover in one sitting. Now I'm waiting with bated breath for the next novel from Ms. Chidley.
