This was a bonus read. Three delightful authors and books in one go. Jill Mansell was new to me. I thought this was a bit unrealistic. Single mother two delightful kids, wonderful relationship with her ex-husband. So much so, I really thought at the beginning that she still had feelings for him thataway!
and that she would be getting back to him. Anyway she fell in love with her boss (how mundane could that be) and ends nicely with all ends neatly tied.
In our second book - Second Honeymoon by Joanna Trollope Edie our housewife is an empty nest syndrome mother but one who still yearns for the joys of having her children under her roof and she just cannot get used to the fact that her youngest preferred to flat share with his girlfriend and most importantly her mother preferring their cramped house to his own home. Edie's husband looks on the empty nest as a way of getting Edie to himself again after a long time but his hopes are thwarted because one by one the children return, all with grown up problems of their own and the resulting story is one which is a good lesson to all mothers - empty nest or otherwise!!!!
Again a new author for me Alexandra Potter brings Heather to life in this one. Heather just wants something to go right in her life. Little things and wishes it could come true. After getting a bit of white heather from a gypsy strange things do come right for our Heather. I liked Gabriel and Jess and the humour was so good.
This triology was good for me. After a lot of heavy stuff - murder and mayhem, historical fiction with its fair share of bloodshed this was just right.
