Viola hasn't had much luck with men. Her first husband, Marco, companion of her youth and father of her only child, left her when he realised he was gay. Her second, Rhys, ended his high-octane, fame-filled life by driving his Porsche into a wall. No wonder her family always believes she needs Looking After, and her friends think she really shouldn't be allowed out on her own...
Which is why, at the age of thirty-nine, she finds herself shamefully back at home, living with Mum.
Viola knows she has to take charge; she needs to get a life, and fast. With a stroppy teenage daughter, a demanding mother, and siblings who want to control her life for her, where is she going to turn?
I have two review to write, now how to make this short...
Heroine: Viola, a 35 year old with two marriages behind her. Marco is still around and such a good guy. Rhys was a complete ahole that cheated on her and then he died. Do not even think about him! She is a klutz and she would like to find love again...maybe.
Hero: A man she meets. Will they meet again? Well duh. There is a slow building friendship that takes the entire book to build. Which was nice. She really does not have the best luck with men.
Romance: Thought about, not really there.
Story. Her starting all over again. Her teenage daughter wanting some fun in her life. And the secret of who Rhys wanted to leave her for. Oh that was so obvi. Made me angry too at him.
I meant to write like two paragraphs..ok back on track. A nice story about finding love again.
