As an agony aunt, Fliss Carmichael should have all the answers but when her own marriage begins unravelling at the seams, she hasn’t a clue where to start. After a simple mistake causes an unintended role swap, she becomes the one seeking advice from an unlikely source!
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
Based on an unusual idea, which is always good, this story features an agony aunt and a young woman who emails her. Are agony aunts commonplace nowadays? They were in the second half of the twentieth century, which gives this story a retro feel, adding to its originality.
There are two stories, both entertaining, with poignant moments, but this is a mostly humorous romantic read. The characters are likeable and relatable and the situations they find themselves in very amusing.
This is an engaging escapist read.
Julie Butterfield belongs to the rather large group of ‘always wanted to write’ authors who finally found the time to sit down and put pen to paper – or rather fingers to keyboard.
She wrote her first book purely for pleasure and was very surprised to discover that so many people enjoyed the story and wanted more, so she decided to carry on writing.
It has to be pointed out that her first novel, ‘Did I Mention I Won The Lottery’ is a complete work of fiction and she did not, in fact, receive millions in her bank account and forget to mention it to her husband – even though he still asks her every day if she has anything to tell him
