When Life Gives You Lemons by Fiona Gibson

I’m so pleased to be part of the blog tour today for this fantastic book. Thanks so much to Avon Books for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

About the Book:

Sometimes life can be bittersweet . . .

Between tending to the whims of her seven-year-old and the demands of her boss, Viv barely gets a moment to herself. It’s not quite the life she wanted, but she hasn’t run screaming for the hills yet.

But then Viv’s husband Andy makes his mid-life crisis her problem. He’s having an affair with his (infuriatingly age-appropriate) colleague, a woman who – unlike Viv – doesn’t put on weight when she so much as glances at a cream cake.

Viv suddenly finds herself single, with zero desire to mingle. Should she be mourning the end of life as she knows it, or could this be the perfect chance to put herself first?

When life gives you lemons, lemonade just won’t cut it. Bring on the gin!

My Review:

This book is just the perfect pick-me-up that we all need at the moment!

I’ve been a fan of this author’s books for a while, but it’s ages since I’ve read one of hers. They just keep getting better and better.

Viv is such a great character. I liked her so much. She goes through so much during the course of the book, but keeps such a great sense of humour through it all. She also finds her inner strength and confidence.

I love the way the author takes a subject that can be a bit of a taboo, or difficult to talk about, the menopause, and makes it so humorous. There’s a refreshing honesty there too.

There are genuine laugh-out-loud moments in this book, it really is hilarious. Absolutely loved it.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
