Thank you #Netgalley and #boldwoodbooks for allowing me to read this ARC.
It took me a minute to get into the story, the initial focus is on setting up the characters and the one thing the two main Characters: Ruby Lambert and Harry Small have in common. A drive to lose weight.
Ruby is a single mother to baby Simon and with less than 4 months to go until her sister Olivia's Wedding, suddenly realises she is a lot bigger than she had thought she was.
Harry is unHappily married to his wife Annabel who is quite cruel to him, she even signs him up for a fitness boot camp because in her mind he is now unreasonably overweight.
Saskia York runs Bluebell Booty Busters with Master Chef Mr B and the Blue Cliff Hotel and this is where the story starts taking shape, in more ways than one.
There is a lot of humour in this book, with focus on single parenthood, conception issues, a marriage breakdown and people learning to be strong to achieve their ideal weight.
I absolutely enjoyed getting to know all of the characters and their quirks.
Many of us can identify with the pounds sneaking up on us and then wanting to change that. There is a difference between wanting and doing. In this book the boost is that it makes losing weight feel attainable with effort and dedication and that we are not alone in our weight woes.
The story touches on fertility issues from a female and male perspective and how difficult it can be with both partners have fertility issues.
Friendship and support is written in a beautiful way and I really felt sorry for Annabel's BMW.
If you want humour, laughter and inspiration, you will find it in this book. I couldn't put it down as I was so keen to find out what happens next.
You can find love in all kinds of strange places.
