Publisher's Summary

What do you do when you find yourself suddenly single? Go suddenly suicidal? Suddenly sexcrazed? Or simply slump into self-pity? Alix Callaghan, who thought she was in control of her busy life, feels like doing all three when her long-term boyfriend insists on settling down to a sensible existence – complete with children, proper meals and early nights – but without her. Little by little, though, Alix begins to think there might be more to the single life than the first shock of rejection suggests...

I did enjoy it in the end

If you’ve listened to books by Sheila O'Flanagan before, how does this one compare?

I have listened to several books by this author and found to be 5* listens/reads. The meat of this one was also very good, but I agree with another reviewer that there was too much detail of the stock market and trading room. I had to skip a few chapters alltogether after the first couple, because (from the several bits of each one of those chapters that I checked) they seemed to consist almost entirely of shouting in the dealing room. This level of detail was unnecessary for the story. That said, when I got past about chapter 17, the dealing room stuff was at an appropriate level for context.

What does Caroline Lennon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She is my favourite narrator and was faultless as usual.

Any additional comments?

If not for the high quality of the writing and my previous enjoyment of this authors work, I may have given-up and obtained a refund after the first half a dozen chapters. I am glad that I persevered though.
