Robin Wilde is acing life. After the year from hell, she's pulled herself up and out of The Emptiness, her love life is ticking along nicely, single motherhood is actually quite fun and she is ready for whatever life throws at her. When a thrilling opportunity at work arises, Robin is more than excited to step up and show everyone, including herself, what she's made of. But her best friend Lacey is increasingly broken-hearted about struggling to conceive, and her daughter Lyla is starting to come out with some horrible attitudes she's learning from someone at school. Is Auntie Kath hiding loneliness under her bubbly, loving veneer? And can Robin definitely trust the people she must depend on in her fab new role? But Robin has her girls. And her girls have got her. Together they can handle any crisis. Can't they?
I was pleasantly surprised by this novel by Louise Pentland. If I'm honest, I was expecting it to be below average, but... I loved it! The whole time I was reading it, I just felt a sense of warmth and I was fully engaged the whole time.
