After a year of country living, Rachel Young is finally getting into the swing of things. Her four kids are happy and content at the village school, and she’s managed to navigate the choppy (shark-infested) waters of the playground mafia.
Or… so she thought.
When playground mum Penelope Kensington moves herself and her kids into Rachel’s home, after discovering husband Rupert has been having an affair, Rachel knows she must ask them politely to leave. The problem is, Penelope never takes no for an answer.
As Rachel tries to deal with Penelope, she also meets new school mum Melanie. Melanie is a breath of fresh air, but her arrival sends ripples of gossip through the playground. Melanie has a few secrets in her closet, and it seems she’s not the only one…
Oh wow what a brilliantly funny read this was. I stood in the playground waiting on my little one coming out of class, while reading this on my kindle. I stood laughing imagining what all those other parents must think of me. lol. Lucky for me, I really don't care, and try to keep myself to myself in the playground.
This was one of those books, you just can't help smile at while you are reading, a very easy read, and great a great fun read. It has laugh out moments, and a few, OH NO WAY moments.
This Is the first book I have read from this author and will certainly be looking out for more. It really gave me an uplift, and brightened up my day while reading this.
Anyone feeling a little down in the dumps should read this book.
I liked the character Rachel and thought she has a whole lot of patience, certainly a lot more that I have that's for sure. Penelope was a character that I kind of liked and disliked at the same time.
There is so much i want to say about the story line, but I can't give it all away and spoil it for those of you that have not read it yet. Because believe me.. You do want to read it, I can just tell by your face.
It's just one of those books you can relate to, a real life kind of book. The Characters as you read through the book, you will probably know someone just like each one of them. lol.
A great fun believable read.
I just wish I had read the previous book before this one. Then I could have read them back to back.
