This was one of those books, when I saw it. It just sounded good. Fun, different.
As I read an awful lot of crime, mystery thrillers. Occasionally I like something a little different and that is what I though when I saw this.
Abigail, is a wife and a new Mummy. She seems determined that she wants to lose weight. As Its new year I was thinking maybe this is something that thousands of people are going through, trying to follow a new diet. I must be honest, i'm not sure I could diet If my life depended on it. But would like to lose a pound or two after Christmas, so thought it might be fun doing a little of Abigails diet.
Unfortunatly Abigail is a delt a blow she wasnt expecting when Husband Thad decides marriage and babies are not really for him.
Abigail is shocked and saddened, after having had no idea anything was wrong, she is thrown in to some life changing decisions. Abaigail leaves the marital home, with her little one, and she ends up moving back in with her parents. looking for work, child care and all the things she thought she would not need to be doing. She is also still trying to follow her Diet.
Abigails Diet is probably not the best thing to be trying whilst going through her break up. but she's not exactly sticking to it, and with her imaginary diet friend talking to her, it does make some funny parts in the story. There are more than a few laugh out loud moments.
It was rather repetative in parts, but very easy to follow, i got a little bored reading it, and finished off listening to it via text to speach on my kindle, which did help pass a little time while doing housework, and ironing. I can only listen via the text to speach when the story is very easy to follow.
It wasn't fantastic but it wasn't bad, and was a nice change from my normal reads of crime thrillers.
I recieved this ARC via Netgalley
