Amy Cole is Zen as F*ck by Elizabeth McGivern

Ding Dong the bitch is dead

The inner bitch, that is

It’s been almost two years since Amy Cole walked through the door of her therapist’s office and now she’s ready to emerge as the sane, zen-like woman she has always wanted to be. Unfortunately for Amy, life has the nasty habit of not playing along.

There’s no time for a quiet life with a business to run, family life to balance and a newly-single best friend to keep an eye on.From getting embroiled in a feud with a maniacal diet guru, making sure Elle isn’t murdered by strangers from the internet and dealing with the mother-in-law from hell, mayhem always seems to find a way into Amy’s life.

Elle De Bruyn is on the cusp of finalising her divorce and is ready to jump, head-first, into dating once again. She soon learns that finding love in the 21st century is a tricky business. She lives in hope that somewhere in between the liars, cheats and unsolicited dick pics there’s still a chance for one more great love affair.

With life in a constant state of chaos, it doesn’t take long for Amy to realise that therapy was the easy part and now it’s time for the real work to begin.

Is sanity really all it’s cracked up to be?


Oh my goodness, where do I even start to review this amazing book? I just loved the first book and I was so excited to hear that a second one was coming out.
It sounds strange to say that a novel which deals with mental health issues can be hilarious, but it really is laugh out loud funny. Right from the first page I was hooked.

Amy gets up to her usual scrapes and adventures, particularly when her best friend, Elle, is involved. There’s some great new diverse and madcap characters to meet.

The author has such a talent for mixing humour with serious issues. It’s an incredibly funny book, but moving at the same time. It really shows the importance of family, friends, and the ability to laugh at both yourself, and what life throws at you.

I was so sorry when I got to the last page and it had to end. I’m delighted that there’s going to be another one, but wish I didn’t have to wait for it!

Thanks so much to the author for the advance copy of the book.

I can’t recommend this book highly enough. If you haven’t read them, just get the two books, and be prepared to need to cancel everything and just get absorbed in them. Truly fabulous.

MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
