Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

A must read, especially for anyone going through . . . . The Change by Kirsten Miller – brilliant!!

Big Little Lies meets The Witches of Eastwick—a gloriously entertaining and knife-sharp feminist revenge fantasy about three women whose midlife crisis brings unexpected new powers—putting them on a collision course with the evil that lurks in their wealthy beach town.

My Review:

Gosh, this is one of those books for which I don't want to write a review,
But only because it is so good, I'd rather you read it yourself, too!
For any lady in their middle years knows the menopause causes changes
But for the trio in this book, the changes their lives totally rearranges!

For one, an advertising director, life as she knew it totally implodes,
But that's when her botanical new knowledge and skills explodes!
Another is a former executive who with her body has been at war
Now she learns to channel her hot flushed and is at war no more!

The third inherited her grandmother's ability to hear
The call of the dead who have died somewhere isolated but near.
Fate brings the three together with their different knowledge and skill
To find a young teen's remains - who was she and why was she killed?

A story with humour but an enthralling crime thriller, too,
About powerful men, their excuses and what some like to do.
But also about the women who come into their own power
And find just how to make those men pay and cower!

A fascinating mystery with surprises and twists
One that I'm so glad that it isn't one I missed.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and hope you will, too,
As I can't recommend it highly enough to you!

For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
As I share with you this, my honest review.


In the Long Island oceanfront community of Mattauk, three different women discover that midlife changes bring a whole new type of empowerment…

After Nessa James’s husband dies and her twin daughters leave for college, she’s left all alone in a trim white house not far from the ocean. In the quiet of her late forties, the former nurse begins to hear voices. It doesn’t take long for Nessa to realize that the voices calling out to her belong to the dead—a gift she’s inherited from her grandmother, which comes with special responsibilities.

On the cusp of 50, suave advertising director Harriett Osborne has just witnessed the implosion of her lucrative career and her marriage. She hasn’t left her house in months, and from the outside, it appears as if she and her garden have both gone to seed. But Harriet’s life is far from over—in fact, she’s undergone a stunning and very welcome metamorphosis.

Ambitious former executive Jo Levison has spent thirty long years at war with her body. The free-floating rage and hot flashes that arrive with the beginning of menopause feel like the very last straw—until she realizes she has the ability to channel them, and finally comes into her power.

Guided by voices only Nessa can hear, the trio of women discover a teenage girl whose body was abandoned beside a remote beach. The police have written the victim off as a drug-addicted sex worker, but the women refuse to buy into the official narrative. Their investigation into the girl’s murder leads to more bodies, and to the town’s most exclusive and isolated enclave, a world of stupendous wealth where the rules don’t apply. With their newfound powers, Jo, Nessa, and Harriet will take matters into their own hands…
