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

Superb, heartwarming and hilarious read! – Wendy’s Winter Gift by Debbie Viggiano

My Review:

Wendy Walker is forty-eight
Is she too late?
To make a fresh start
And from her husband to part?

Looking at her life has her feeling sad
She can't remember when she was last glad.
Her husband belittles and denigrates her - or  totally ignores.
Her marriage is feeling like a long. lost cause!

Taking stock, considering how she's feeling,
The thought of it continuing is leaving her reeling!
But dare she take a chance on a fresh start?
Will her husband even let her part?

With a daughter who is a teenage Mum,
She's unsure about what's to come.
But get ready for surprises being in store
With rabbits, solicitors, friends and so much more!

I thoroughly enjoyed this laugh out loud read
With great characters and community - it was just what I need!
There are delightful dogs up to mischief, too,
And fabulous encounters - and walks to do.

 Another hilarious read from this author who
I have no hesitation in highly recommending to you!
For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.

Synopsis:

Everyone has secrets but some are bigger than others.

Wendy Walker can count on two fingers the number of birthdays until she’s fifty.  She can also count on six hands the number of years she’s been married to controlling Derek.  Whatever happened to the boy she used to lark around with in the back of a Ford Escort? Just like Derek’s hairline, that lad has gone.

Wendy yearns for freedom but is resigned to her lot.  After all, there are others to think about.  Like daughter Ruby who – as a teenage single mum still at home – needs supporting, especially since abandoning her hopes of being on Love Island and achieving fame as a reality star.

But secrets dare to spill at the most inopportune moments.

Ruby is nurturing a mystery romance that she dreads her mother discovering, while Derek finds himself under the spotlight in the most disastrous of circumstances.

But just when Wendy thinks her world is falling apart, she discovers that sometimes unexpected joy is just around life’s corner…
