The 6pm Frazzled Mums' Club by Nina Manning #Review

I am delighted to be part of the celebrations for the publication of Nina Manning's The 6pm Frazzled Mums' Club . It was published by Boldwood Books on September 26th.     Whatever the question, the answer is wine! They’ve swapped the dark and lonely baby days for school gate chaos, but Aisha, Sophy and Mel are discovering that there are new parenting pitfalls just waiting for them… Influencer Sophy, is trying to keep on top of home and work life but is finding it all a bit tough! Everyone thinks she’s living her best life, but the pressure to maintain perfection at the school gates when all she wants to do is cry, is taking its toll on Sophy. Aisha doesn’t know what to do with all her spare time now her twins are at school. Maybe it’s time to focus on herself and the dreams she’s put on hold?

One Last Day of Summer by Shari Low #Review

One Last Day of Summer by Shari Low was published by Boldwood Books on 19th July and I am delighted to be on its blog tour. 

 As a flight to St Lucia leaves the runway, four passengers meet for the first time.

After escaping her controlling husband, Bernadette Manson is taking the first extravagant holiday of her new life. But when her best friend cancels, will she be strong enough to fly solo?

Tadgh Donovan is about to jet off to his destination wedding when he sees a shocking text. Has his bride-to-be written her wedding vows… or already broken them?

Hayley Ford is the wife of a top fertility specialist yet her battle to get pregnant has almost broken her marriage. Can a trip to the sun heal their relationship or should she brace for a crash landing?

Dev Robbins is crossing oceans to track down the woman he fell in love with at first sight. Will it be a one way trip to happy ever after or a return journey to singledom?

 My Thoughts

This is a truly escapist read as you get to jet off to St Lucia with four very different characters who all are sitting near each other on the plane and find their lives becoming entwined. Each one is at a crossroads in their lives and during the journey, strike up connections. I'm not sure whose story I was most invested in as they were all intriguing but I think my sympathy overall was with Hayley who was facing up to a few truths about her arrogant and controlling husband. 

    There are some light-hearted moments during the long flight to the sun, notably when you glimpse the cabin crew who must have seen it all before and took all the comings and goings in their stride. Each of the four characters have their own backstory and alternating chapters are devoted to each one. This is an ideal holiday read as you can pick it up and put it down due to this structure. There are a few surprises to keep you on your toes and I can thoroughly recommend it this summer.

In short: entertaining and enjoyable read
