What an emotional read! – Can I Give My Stepkids Back? by Aurelie Tramier

 

Title: Can I Give My Stepkids Back?

Author: Aurelie Tramier

Gosh this story takes you through the whole gamut of emotions again and again! It is a story where Morgan suddenly finds herself responsible for bringing up Elliot and Lea, her nephew and niece, after their parents are killed in a car crash. She is only used to living with her dog, Snoopy, and whilst grieving for the loss of her beloved sister learning to look after her children is definitely a shock to her system.

They’re all grieving, getting to know each other and their new norm. However, the lifestyle changes for all of them aren’t necessarily helped by Morgan’s Mum, the children’s Grandma Cat, who always seems to have her claws out ready to attack Morgan, even when it is only via a phone call.  It is a story of fresh starts, secrets from the past, new opportunities and the growth to be a family. It is a story of fresh starts, secrets from the past, new opportunities and the growth to be a family. It is also about healing, learning to trust and love, striving to attain your dreams and has a delightful couple of matchmaking children, too!

It is an emotive read, highly entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable. It is told mainly from the points of view of Morgan and Elliot, including some heartbreaking letters Elliot writes to his Mum. Make sure you have the tissues ready when you read this, though I’m not sure whether you’ll be crying happy or sad tears – or a mixture of the two!

My thanks to Hodder and Stoughton and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
