My Review:

This is an emotively written chicklit/ Women’s fiction that I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

Thirty nine year old Cassie Noble is an IT guru, a workaholic, single, determined never to marry but also re-evaluating her life as she rapidly approaches the big 4 0. She’s had a few surprises lately that triggered this – starting with someone seventeen years her junior being employed as her equal and given her current big project to run by her boss – and his uncle! She also initiated and runs a support group for ladies in a similar situation to her and now a man is trying to infiltrate and join the group! Cassie is a stubborn, feisty and just so real, brilliantly portrayed and so easy to empathise with through the dramatic encounters. She moved me to tears at times as she solves everyone else’s problems but struggles to solve her own as she is so blinkered she struggles to recognise either the problems or possible solutions at times. Cassie isn’t the only brilliant character in this story, there are a range of superb interactions, especially with members of the computer group as well as the support group.

I hadn’t read anything by this author before but this story has made me a big fan! The plot twists keep the reader enthralled and turning pages. The story has everything from challenging childhood experiences, real life tragedies, dramatic choices, intrigue along with romance – I very highly recommend it!

Thanks to the author for sending me an ecopy of this novel to read in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis:

IT guru Cassie Noble can depend on networks and servers. It’s the people in her life that always let her down. With her fortieth birthday looming, she’d love to find a way to trust and commit to someone.

Eager to work out her problems methodically, Cassie reaches out to her support group. Electrician Keith manages to infiltrate their all-female ranks, infuriating her with his flippant jokes and his all-too laid back attitude. The other women all find him hilarious and she can’t see why. She takes this seriously and he’s doing anything but.

When Cassie needs Keith’s help on a project at her day job, she’s dreading having to work closely with him, however much his hazel eyes make her stop dead in her tracks. As days turn to weeks, he starts to break down her hard exterior. She’s seeing new possibilities. She’s seeing the future…a life that is joyful and bright. A life that includes Keith.

But when a letter from her mother drags her back to the world where Cassie has no control, she shuts down. Can her support group yank her back from that place where hope is lost? And can the man who once drove her crazy be the one who finally doesn’t let her down?
