Chic lit


Kind of chic.lit-ish. I enjoyed that. It was so easy and light to read (with some depth too), and at the end I was satisfied. I did later see that there are 2 more books, but I am happy here. If the library had more I would totally read more though.

Robin is a single mum. She feels she has no time at all. Hey, I hear you Robin. She thinks all the yummy mummies at school are more put together than her.

So we see her with her kid. At school trying to navigate all those moms. Trying to get more work (freelance). And getting out there again and meeting someone.

Light, easy, some romance (but this is not a romance), and starting to enjoy life again

Single mum Robin Wilde adores her six-year-old daughter and loves her job as a make up artist's assistant. She has a wonderful best friend and an auntie who is bonkers, yes, but loves her to the moon and back.

But Robin has a secret. Behind the mask she carefully applies every day, things just feel ... grey. And lonely. She struggles to fit in with the school mum crew. Online dating is totally despair-inducing, and she worries every day about raising her little girl with self-confidence, courage and joy.

What Robin longs for is someone (over the age of six) to share with - someone who's always on her team. After 4 years (2 months, and 15 days!) of single-mum-dom, it's time for Robin Wilde to Change. Her. Life.

Exciting new opportunities are about to come Robin's way ... Perhaps a man, perhaps the chance of a lifetime ...

What will Robin do with the possibilities she creates for herself? And what potential will she unlock if she takes the leap?


  1. Awe just what I need after watching the evening news. Thanks

  2. Nice to hear you enjoyed it overall. :)

  3. Sometimes a quick and light read is just what we need!

  4. She sounds very relatable and great that it was a fun one for you.

  5. Sounds like a positive reading experience. Like you some books only get followed up if they are at the library.

  6. Sometimes ending after one book is a good thing! I wish they would have only made one Kissing Booth. LOL!

  7. I am tempted. This sounds really cute. I need something like this. I think I've overdone it with HR lately
