If you like gentle British humour and deliciously resilient heroines, you’ll love Ten Things MyHusband Hated.
The Review: I love when you read a book, intent on enjoying it, and then not only do you enjoy it, you stay up all night savouring it, and not due to a deadline!
But I digress. This is the story of Maggie Moone, who we meet at an awards evening, one that seems to be a society occasion, with her in shock that she is the butt of a joke and everyone thinks she is still in love with her ex husband. I’ll admit her reaction was a bit strong until I realised how little I liked her husband and wouldn’t particularly have wanted to have been associated with him either!
What results is a plan formulated with her friends (who I loved!) on basically how to seriously irk him. I loved their list!! It pretty much falls into place from the start and I found myself smiling or nodding along from scenario to scenario, aghast at some horrible surprises that made me tut about her ex husband. There was also a little aside, that of her reason for being attached to a tree house, that made my stomach drop. All in all one for those who enjoy something that bit quirky and fun, and very much recommended and enjoyed and I intend to go back to the start of the series, although I read this as a standalone and it didn’t affect anything.
Thanks so much to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review and for letting me be part of the blog tour.

Three further books set in the same village are now available, along with a collection of short stories and Indie With Ease, a self-help guide for other self-published authors. When not writing, Pauline can be found pondering how many miles she has to run to justify an extra piece of cake. She’s also fond of daydreaming about flying herself and a reader to London for tea.
