ABOUT THIS BOOK
Sometimes life can be bittersweet . . .
Between tending to the whims of her seven-year-old and the demands of her boss, Viv barely gets a moment to herself. It’s not quite the life she wanted, but she hasn’t run screaming for the hills yet.
But then Viv’s husband Andy makes his mid-life crisis her problem. He’s having an affair with his (infuriatingly age-appropriate) colleague, a woman who – unlike Viv – doesn’t put on weight when she so much as glances at a cream cake.
Viv suddenly finds herself single, with zero desire to mingle. Should she be mourning the end of life as she knows it, or could this be the perfect chance to put herself first?
When life gives you lemons, lemonade just won’t cut it.
Bring on the gin!
Oh, this book is the perfect tonic! It made me laugh so much and laughter is definitely worth pursuing at every opportunity. But this story also has a lot of depth to it too and I cannot wait to read more from Fiona Gibson.
Viv and her husband Andy have reached a strange point in their twenty-five-year life together. She is struggling with the menopause and the MANY side-effects that it is causing and while she yearns for closeness with Andy, he seems to be moving further away from her. That is until he completely moves away from her to be with another woman - a woman he has been having an affair with and now loves. Now Viv must hold it together for her kids and herself while trying to figure out what she wants from her life going forward. This involves life coaches, meddling and well-meaning friends, new adventures, and some hot flashes along the way. But when life gives you lemons ...
The characters are wonderfully relatable, likeable, with their own special quirks that made me fall in love with them instantly, and Viv stands out as the best because of her determination, her complete honesty, and her willingness to try to be happy.
WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS by Fiona Gibson is the kind of story that will have you sympathising while snorting with laughter, and I found myself reading it in one sitting because I was enjoying it so much.
An excellent story that will warm your heart, WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS is a must-read for everyone.
Fiona Gibson is the author of 15 romantic comedy novels, including the best-selling The Mum Who Got Her Life Back (Avon), which celebrates the empty nester years. Under the name of Ellen Berry, she also writes the heartwarming Rosemary Lane series (Snowdrops on Rosemary Lane is out in January 2020).
Fiona grew up in West Yorkshire, before working on Jackie and Just Seventeen magazines - in those heady pre-internet days when it was thrilling to get a free plastic mirror taped to the front of your magazine. She went on to edit More! magazine, where she introduced the infamous Position of the Fortnight. After having twin sons and a daughter, Fiona started to write novels, usually at night with the house full of toddlers and builders. She was sleep deprived anyway so it really didn't make any difference.
She also loves to draw, paint and run - by some miracle she managed to finish the London Marathon 2019. With the kids all grown up now, she and her husband Jimmy live in Glasgow with their collie cross, Jack.
