Kate is British, beautiful, married and forty-nine, almost fifty. To top it all off, she is trying to find a job and going through menopause while he husband is going through a midlife crisis. Her teenage daughter just got a naked selfie of herself posted (by accident) all over the internet and her mother has just learned how to skype. Meanwhile, Kate is considering lying about her age to get a job because she has to pay all expenses for her home renovations by a terribly sexy Polish handyman. Whew, Kate’s life is so complicated! This funny, rollicking story will have you laughing all the way through it! Kate’s plight is so normal in so many ways (or should I say, usual) that the reader can identify with the character and “feel her pain” and anguish. I loved the story and really appreciated finding another author that I can look forward to reading !
