Well, I think it’s fairly obvious to any reader of my blog that I love books, these days the focus is on passing that passion on to Monkey, so it’s nice when I actually have a ‘me’ book to read!

The book is based around Susie Rosen (if you like Bridget Jones, you’ll like Susie) as she comes to terms with a job in advertising that has left her disillusioned and a love life that leaves a lot to be desired.  She has a plan to change her destiny but will all the pieces fall into place?

As you’ll know if you’ve read an earlier review, I don’t believe in giving the plot away, why do that? If I do, what reason do you have to buy the book??

It did take me a while to really get into Left Overs, I think it was a ‘lighter’ read than I’d been used to for a while, and I didn’t get that ‘I can’t put this book down’ feeling.  Having said that, I did enjoy it, it made me laugh and I was quite pleased with the ending.

The added bonus with this book, for any pasta lover (yes, that’ll be me then) are the extra little recipes.  I will be trying one out shortly.

Left Overs currently retails at £6.99 (2013 price) and I would definately recommend it if you’re looking for something to read on holiday this summer – perfect match 🙂

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
