Midlife crisis? WHAT midlife crisis?!
A warm, funny read for fans of Outnumbered and the novels of Fern Britton, Fiona writes about life as it really is.
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, thanks so much to Avon UK for providing me with a review copy of As Good As It Gets via Netgalley. Secondly, isn’t that cover just gorgeous?! Love the striking colours!
Fiona Gibson does a wonderful job at creating a brilliant family dynamic. I instantly adored Charlotte, who’s got a lot on her plate between her beautiful 16-year-old daughter fighting for independence as she is hurled into the modelling world, her inquisitive son, Olly, and her recently unemployed husband who is acting more like a flatmate than a lover. Top that with cool, fun-loving and fashionable new neighbours to compare herself to and her first love – Rosie’s father – suddenly popping back up after 16 years without a word… Cue drama.
Between a great cast of relatable characters and a wonderfully warm and funny story, Fiona has created a fantastic piece of chick lit. There’s some hilarious laugh-out-loud moments, including leather trousers and Brian May perms, as well as sweet and tender scenes too.
This should definitely be on the chick-lit lovers TBR list for 2015.
