THE BOOK DESCRIPTION
It’s Zoe and Jack’s first wedding anniversary party. They’ve got an announcement! They’re getting divorced.
Marriage isn’t for everyone – something that Zoe and Jack discovered only after they’d walked down the aisle. Bad timing, huh?
So now they’re stuck together in their once harmonious marital home, neither one of them willing to move out of their lovely house.
With Zoe’s three sisters always wanting a say, and Jack’s best friend trying his best to fix things between them, misunderstandings arise. Tempers flare. ‘Accidents’ happen…
Zoe and Jack are going to be lucky if they’re still alive when the twelve months are up. But maybe things aren’t quite as final as they seem?
A hilarious read, which reminds us that life doesn’t always go to plan… If you love Mhairi McFarlane, you’ll love this.
MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
I really do love a book with humour and this did start with a promise of great things to come but the story did become a little too depressing for me and somewhere all the humour was lost in it. The book cover I loved and the title sounded just perfect but unfortunately Zoe didn’t seem to have any sunshine in her life and she brought little to her poor suffering new husband. All he was guilty of was asking Zoe to marry him. Poor bloke. I really did like him and the author did capture all of his frustrations really well.
The novel moved from the moment of the marriage is over bit back and forth through their courtship days and how they were coping still living together in the same small flat in the aftermath of the wedding and subsequent bomb shell announcement. It was all really quite sad to be honest.
Would I read any more of this author’s books?
Yes the novel is well written just the story out weighed the comedy for me. Sorry.
This though is just my opinion and you may find that this novel is just perfect for you. Not every book is for everyone. If you decide to buy this book and you do love it please leave a positive review for this author. Thanks.
I wish to thank Netgalley and Avon Publishing for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
