The Mum Who Got Her Life Back by Fiona Gibson – Blog Tour

Welcome to my slot on the blog tour of this really fun read!  Thanks so much to Avon Books for the copy of the book in return for an honest review.


I’d describe this as a real feel-good book.  There are some really hilarious moments in there but what’s really nice is that there are plenty of emotional and tender parts too.

In this book we meet Nadia, a hard-working and down-to-earth mother of two.  I liked her straightaway.  We meet her after her twins go to university and we follow her journey through that change and then again when they both come home for the summer.

She has had a successful and amicable separation from the twins’ father and Nadia has got her own life back and a budding romance with Jack.  She’s never felt more alive.

I love how the book is written in different parts so the narrative is different in each chapter.  This means we get to follow Jack’s journey too, who is a dad of one teenager and has gone through his own separation.

The highs and lows of the lives of the characters is told with humour and truth and I found many things to relate to even though my children are younger.  You can imagine everything happening in real life.  It’s very easy to find yourself walking in the characters’ shoes for periods of time too. I think that’s a sign of a really well written story.

This is a fast and easy read so if you’re looking for some light entertainment requiring little thought, this book is for you.

Mother of Dragons, rugby coach and eternal dreamer. I love nothing more than being lost down the rabbit hole of books and my Kindle. With a pinch of empowerment, a teaspoon of solitude and the odd G&T I'm not shy of an opinion or letting you know what passions stir my mind! Musings of a binge reader.
