I am delighted to share my review review for How to Make Time for Me by Fiona Perrin with you today on Blog Tour
No-one said being a single mum would be easy…
Everyone knows that being a single mother means having no time to yourself. But for Callie Brown, its more exhausting than most. She’s juggling the needs of three teenage children, two live-in parents, a raffish ex-husband, and a dog who never stops eating.
The last thing Callie needs is anything more on her plate. So when she bumps (quite literally) into a handsome, age-appropriate cyclist, she’s quick to dismiss him from her life. After all, if she doesn’t have time to brush her hair in the morning, she certainly doesn’t have time to fall in love…
Funny, heartwarming and oh-so-true, this is a novel about motherhood, families, and life after divorce, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Allison Pearson.
This is the first book that I have read by the author and certainly won’t be my last.. Being a single parent myself I just had to read this book and I sure has hell wasn’t disappointed. I am over the moon that I have found a new author to read.
From the moment we meet Callie I was laughing out loud, then found myself laughing throughout the story. This book is my kinda book. I absolutely loved Callie.
From my own experience it is a mission juggling two teenage boys and a job and finding time for myself. Fiona has done a brilliant job of portraying this has we follow Callie on a roller coaster journey. Which is exactly what it is living the live of a single parent.
There was plenty of OMG that’s so true moments which made this a fun and entertaining read. This is actually a perfect chill out read for when you do get time for yourself.
For me this was a truly uplifting story which made me think that I am not the only one in this situation. I love how the author has taken something that can be stressful and extremely hard work and turned it around and brings us a fun quirky read, which I highly recommend.
I would like to thank Victoria Joss for the Blog Tour invite.
