I think this book would be better as YA as the writing style is very simple. None of the 'issues tackled' are explored in any depth and the characters, whilst likeable, are all one dimensional ...more

Summary: You never know what surprises life has in store . . .

Robin Wilde is crazy busy with her exciting job and her lovely new man. She's parenting with flair, and she's feeling better after the heartbreak of last year. But with so little time to herself, and best friend Lacey's increasing struggle with post-natal depression, the cracks are beginning to show. Cue a team trip to New York.

Meet Robin Wilde: mum, newly-appointed official girlfriend, make-up artist extraordinaire and general plate-spinning, life-juggling, balance-seeking badass. Or so I like to think. Everything seems to be slotting into place, not just for me but for my close-knit little world of friends and family too. Yet despite all that, I still feel like I'm blagging it. Although our lives sound great on paper, cracks are beginning to show. My best friend Lacey is struggling to bond with her baby, my lovely Au ...more

I really wanted to like this one more than I did. Overall, I enjoyed it, but not as much as I did the other two. There were a couple of small criticisms I had and one scene that I had a bigger issue with. I haven't seen many other people talking about this so maybe it's just me being picky (I have been spoilt with good books recently!)

Here's what I didn't like:
- I found some of the dialogue a bit awkward - does anyone really speak like that?
- Kath's age - she's only 54?! For some reason, they ma

Although the official release date for this is not until the 25th. I luckily got it yesterday on pre order early delivery. I started reading it at 1300 and finished it at 12:30 today! It is a wonderful, heartwarming and heart wrenching story that envelops you from the first word to the last. I did not want to put it down, even catching a few pages in adverts of Love Island last night. Robin Wilde is everyone's best friend and everything I want to be! Louise has a way of writing that makes you fe ...more

This is the third and final time we visit Robin Wilde and the gang, and like that saying goes.. Don’t cry that it’s over, smile because it happened! This story is the perfect easy feel good read that has everything! Friendships, family, love, a big trip to the big Apple, (yes please!) and not forgetting a huge family secret, that had me guessing like crazy.. and I still never guessed it! As well as being humorous this story touches on real matters such as post natal depression, reconfirming that ...more

Again like with the first two books of the series, the topics the book deals with are important even though the book itself is a very light and easy read. I found I enjoyed this one because there was quite a bit happening meaning also that there wasn’t as much room for unnecessary descriptions (e.g. telling someone looked amazing and then listing all the colours, labels and patterns of their clothes - doesn’t bring anything to the story and feels extremely redundant). However, the twist towards ...more

An easy and quick book to fly through that does tackle some “taboo” subjects. I like that Louise Pentland does not shy away from “difficult” topics but instead incorporates them into her books nicely in a way that will spark conversations about them as the book is discussed.

Not her best piece of work, but I devoured pretty much the whole book in one sitting which does say a lot about the entertainment value!

Once again Louise Pentland has well and truly outdone herself with another amazing, lovely and heart warming story.

I cannot begin to express how much I have cried, laughed with and for characters, as well as getting angry at them from time to time.

We are shown that women can be strong and independent but from time to time we may need a little help, and it’s perfectly okay to reach out and ask for that help.

Omg though that ending, knowing there isn’t another instalment, made me want to scream

The best out of the three! I loved this book, I cried numerous amounts of times, all in a good way. Im so sad the story is over, I feel like the characters have become part of my life now so I’m going to miss them! And now I’ve pictured Edward in my head with how good he is with lyla, I’m not ashamed to admit I may have a book crush ha!

This is the last book in the Robin Wilde series and it was just as good as the first two books. Would totally recommend it if you are looking for a fun and realistic contemporary series that is mostly light-hearted, but also manages to deal with some more important topics 📚☺️

I think the last part of my book is missing, because there is no way you can leave the end of a book like that, where’s the answer to the question ?

This is going to be a hard one to review because I really don't want to give away any spoilers and as the blurb suggests, there is a big family secret unearthed in this book that is juicy and yet I cannot talk about it!

I loved being back with Robin Wilde again, as you know I am a big fan of hers and so it was great to be able to spend another novel with her in her little world and see how she is getting on with her life. I read this one on audiobook, just like the previous two books and the narr

I was so excited about this book- the third book in the Wilde Women series. I have been following the sparkly Louise Pentland for quite a while now and whenever I pick up one of her books from the series I know there will be plenty of real-life moments -emosh, heartwarming, nostalgic, rewarding, frustrated, lovable and so on. Yes, this book delivers all that and much more.

I adored Robin and couldn't be more proud of this fictional character growth. Robin embodies every mum in the world. She is

I really enjoyed this third instalment in the Wilde series, it's plot and also it's development of characters that we know and love made for an heartwarming and times heartbreaking read.
I find Louise's writing style to be so easy to get into, her characters she has brought to life within these books feel like people you really know , so when you are reading one of these books you feel yourself as you are just catching up with a friend, checking in with Robin to see how things have been since las

This was the third installment of the Wilde series by Louise Pentland, following the life of Robin Wilde. A year later and it was like I had never put book two down and jumped straight back in.

Even though I am not a mother, I find Robin’s character so relatable, which is one of the many reasons why I love these books. That and the wonderful characters; Lyla, Auntie Kath, Lacey, Natalie, Gloria to name just a few.

Louise’s writing allows you to feel like you are part of the story and part of the

I read this book straight after the 2nd book. I’m not sure if I had completely ‘Wilde Woman’d’ myself out from back-to-back series reading, but I just couldn’t get into it. I do enjoy Louise’s writing style, however the story didn’t really pick up for me and the ending just.... happened? The last 100 pages just got really boring for me and I couldn’t wait to finish it.
I liked how Kath got a main spot throughout the book and I enjoyed her storyline, but the rest seemed very repetitive and almost

Another amazing read by this author, picking up where the last one left off.

Robin, Lyla, Aunty Kath & Lacey - again through everything that life throws at them.

Robin is struggling to juggle work, motherhood and her love life with Edward, a work trip to New York is what everyone needs and it will bring everyone closer together!!! Lacey is struggling with her new baby Willow and needs Robin more then ever, she has been desperate for a baby for so long and now her little girl is here, why can't she

A great end to the Wilde series. If I'm being completely honest, it was probably my least favourite of the three and, by the end, I particularly found Edward really annoying. However, I still really loved it, just maybe not quite as much as the first two books. I still loved most of the characters and I find Louise's writing style to be very easy to get into- I can read her books for hours at a time. She manages to deal with heavy subjects but, at the same time, keeps her signature lighthearted ...more

Yet again, a fabulous book from start to finish. The Wilde series has honestly been a breath of fresh air to read. I love Louise’s writing style, and reading this book felt like the warm hug I definitely needed after having emergency surgery.

I love how Louise approaches deeper issues that aren’t widely talked about openly in society. She talks about them in a sensitive manner and encourages you to talk. With anyone. On the contrary - there were so many bits in this book that made me laugh out l

I honestly could not have loved this book anymore if I had tried!

This was by far my favourite out of all of the Robin Wilde books and I'm so sad that its the last we'll hear in her story for now!

Wilde Women really does take you on an emotional Rollercoaster but it is so worth it. I loved seeing more of the other characters lives such as Kath and Lacey and seeing them tackle real life issues such as Post-Natal Depression which affects so many women and like many mental health issues, is not spo

First I would like to thank Louise for writing such amazing books I loved Robin and all the adventures we been on, its basically like reading your friends adventures and having a little catch up... I love all the characters especially auntie Kath and let me tell you that you will need tissues for a part in this book I never saw that coming but it made my heart full with happiness especially with how everything turned out like man I wish it was the last boo

What a wilde journey! And this book is in my opinion a perfect ending, with some twists and turns. Mostly though it is empowering, and talks about many taboo topics in a realistic way - because Louise has life experience and you can see that in her work.
There aren’t many books that make me cry in public, but this one did. [at the special Wilde Women Gang meeting almost at the end]
I am sad to let Robin and her life go, but I will always be able to go back to her to laugh and cry.

I thought this was a fitting end to the Robin Wilde trilogy, I've been really entertained spending time with her and her lovely friends and family! This one is a great summer read with plenty of awkward, side-splitting and "yas queen" moments I've come to expect from this series and I loved how it ended with Robin turning gender roles on their head!
The only little gripe I had with it was that a big reveal for a certain character is told through the perspective of someone else which confused the
