BOOK REVIEW WOMAN OF THE HOUR BY JANE LYTHELL 

Meet Liz Lyon: respected TV producer, stressed out executive, guilty single mother. 

StoryWorld is the national favourite morning show,and producer Liz Lyon wants to keep it that way.  Her job is to turn real life  stories into thrilling TV-and keep a lid on the scandals and backbiting that happen off stage.

But then simmering tensions erupt at the station, trapping Liz  in a game of one -upmanship where she doesn’t know the rules….

This is a gripping story of workplace intrigue ,inspired by the authors own experience of working in the glamorous, pressurised world of live TV.

Firstly thank you to Jane for sending me a copy and a written note,however my naughty dog loved the look of it so much he ate it … so I replaced it lol

I had the pleasure of Meeting and listening to Jane a few years ago and loved her thrillers.

This book is a slight change of direction but just as intense and enjoyable 

I  had a long wait for estelle at a appointment today so this kept  me entertained.

On the card Jane said she felt I could identify with liz who is a single mum like myself. Although I’m not holding down a high pressure job I can definitely see similarities.   As a mum you often feel like youre spinning different plates at once and never having enough to go round.

I’n this book we see what happens when liz begins to realise she can’t be there  for everyone at once to her best ability. 

Full of tension and an array of great characters this makes for a compelling read. It certainly gives you a insight into the working world of TV and what goes on off screen when the camera stops rolling .

People start to show their true colours and changes happen both at work and home. Where does Liz stand and what will her next step be?

Fascinating read and I was thrilled to read there’s going to be another installment… out this summer.

Excellently written as all of Janes books are ,however with this one you can see this is focusing on an area Jane knows very well.
