Book review as good as it gets Fiona gibson

A warm, funny read for fans of Outnumbered and the novels of Fern Britton, Fiona writes about life as it really is.

“Midlife crisis? WHAT midlife crisis?!”

Charlotte Bristow is worried about her husband Will. Their fourteen years of marriage have been rather lovely so far, but things have been a bit odd lately.

With their stunning 16-year-old daughter Rosie newly signed to a top modelling agency and Will recently out of a job, Charlotte can’t help but notice that things are changing in their household.

As Will dusts down his old leather trousers and starts partying with their new, fun neighbours, Charlotte begins to wonder what on earth is going on.

So when Fraser, Charlotte’s ex – and father of Rosie – suddenly arrives back on the scene, Charlotte starts to wonder what might have been…

Firstly a huge thank you to Olivia for sending me a copy to review .I love Fionas books ive read especially as a mum ,they are hilarious and you can really relate to them..

This steers away from her usual book format even with the design ,still fab though !!

I really enjoyed this book,tbh I didn’t think there was a chance I wouldn’t .

I loved everything about this book and the charactars were great .

The dynamics and events  between charlotte and rosie were fun to read and take notes as I have a upcoming teenage daughter.  Oliie was funny and a typical boy .

Some real issues were dealt with in this book ,unemployment ,relationship worries ,parenting ,and Fiona writes about them with wit but also with such warmth.

I can realte to charlotte in many ways having a baby young and feeling a bit lost and questioning who am I?? and whats happening ..

There were several parts that really made me laugh including the ‘crisp effect’  and the shed incident …

We all have those moments when we question our lives and ask what if? But what happens when you possibly get to answer them ? Is the grass always greener …

The ending was lovely and heartwarming and made me smile .
