ABOUT THE BOOK
Life has taken a rather positive turn for Grace. She is now working her socks off in a job she enjoys. She has also quite possibly met the man of her dreams.
So when she reluctantly has to dress up as her granny alter ego for one last time, it can only spell trouble. Grace is forced to confront her bad timing, bad luck and suitably questionable choices all head on.
Motherhood takes Grace on a new life-changing adventure, one that ensures she grows up, but also presents an opportunity for her to try and create a longed for family, which is almost within her reach.
But will she succeed?
The sequel to Granny With Benefits, I was delighted when I learned that MUMMY WITH BENEFITS was released and I couldn't wait to jump right in and continue on Grace's journey with her. Emotional, absorbing, and sometimes seriously frustrating, MUMMY WITH BENEFITS by Marilyn Bennett is an engaging and compelling read and was not what I expected at all!!
Life has certainly changed for Grace who now has a career that she loves and a beautiful baby on the way. It certainly seems that her life is going in the right direction but as always with Grace, things just never seem to be straightforward. For starters, Grace is unsure who the father of the baby actually is, although she certainly has her hopes set on one man in particular. But as the messiness of life overtakes them all, Grace becomes the more mature, responsible adult that she has always wanted to be, but will she end up with the man of her dreams or discover that happiness doesn't necessarily lie where she thinks?
This story made me tear up and made me angry on Grace's behalf when certain characters show their true colours and treat her badly. But I loved watching Grace blossom into a stronger, more independent woman throughout this book as she falls in love with her little girl and is determined to make a good life for them. With ups and downs, confrontations and misunderstandings, MUMMY WITH BENEFITS by Marilyn Bennett is another cracking read from this author with plenty of unexpected developments throughout to keep you on your toes and leave you wanting more, and I really hope this is not the last we see of Grace and her family.
I have worked in television production for over 20 years. Working on all kinds of shows and with lots of great people, but three years ago I decided I wanted to do something different. My career has pretty much revolved around working on other people's creative projects and I suddenly got the urge to find out what I was capable of.
I was quite the bookworm as a child, but my first trip to the cinema changed all of that and the magic of the small and large screen beckoned and I never looked back.
So fast-forward a few decades, I decided that I would write and produce a short film about an elderly woman who ran a dating agency. This morphed into my debut novel, Granny with Benefits and it's sequel, which will be published later this year.
I broke a lifelong tradition of never quite finishing something, which has been an accomplishment in itself! I hope you enjoy my books, as much as I have truly loved writing them.
