40 Something is about five women all in their Forties, and their struggling with their lives. Every one of them has a different story, and a different approach to life.

There is Rose, the picture book mother with her picture book husband Gus who is living a life for her family. She hosts family dinner every Sunday, and that’s when she is happy the most. Her four kids are now teenagers.

Her sister Charlie is a divorce lawyer, who is divorced herself, and mother to her only son. She is a tough woman

Let me start by saying that I won this book as a giveaway. I thought my wife would like it as we are in our 40's, and it's something we could read together. Now for the review.

We couldn't get past the first few pages, there are numerous grammar errors making it difficult to read. You really need to fire your editor.

Some examples of these horrible sentences:
1. On the back cover: "Charlie brings a friend her to dinner her family won't approve."
2. On the back cover: "How can she when her teenagers

Review 40 Something: Sunday Dinner

The kindle version of this book has 55 pages. The chapters are titled with the characters names.

Here is a blurb of what the book is about. It is a story about being a 40 year old woman in the 21st century. The story follows 5 women as they go through their lives as mothers, daughters, wives sisters, and friends.


I came across this author through goodreads with a comment she wrote about her book in one of the groups we belong to.

This book raises a lot of questi

From the Author:

If you are willing to write an honest review, good, bad, or ugly, I will provide a free ebook version of the paperback - not the paperback itself. The paperback version does not have an ebook version available online for purchase. It is only available by request. Please PM me.

The paperback includes ebooks 1-4 plus a bonus instalment. The ebooks are like TV episodes with a larger story woven through them.

Following the lives of a group of ladies who go through relationships, sex, kids and jobs.

This particular reader is about half the age of these ladies but it gave some insight on what's to come, and to know that some life lessons can happen at any age. An adorable and uplifting read filled with everything that life has to offer us on a daily basis.

Suitable for anyone over the age of 20, anyone who has a kid, anyone who's married, or just anyone who's interested in a good book about life.
