My review on my website Twitter@bookpage5

I couldnt put this book down! I was entertained for days reading The Scoop by Cat Walker.

Caseys best friend, Danny probably thinks Casey is having a midlife crisis. With Casey being a lesbian she didnt really get her parents and they most certainly didnt get Casey.

Casey, thought about quitting her job most of the time, but never did. As the years went by she had enough, and emptied the full contents of her desk drawer in

Casey is a thirty something woman who feels a little bit lost. She doesn't have a direction in life, no significant other, a job she doesn't love and a burning desire to just up sticks and find herself.

I can really empathise with her I had this feeling myself and moving away from everyone and everything I've ever known was the absolute making of me.

After reconnecting with her childhood best mate Danny she decides to quit her job, get a campervan and go travelling - gutsy and admirable!

4.5⭐ The Scoop by Cat Walker


Casey Jones is not in a good place, everything around her is not right! Her parents a annoy her, she has the haunting memories of an ex and her job isnt what she dreams of.

At some point she decided to pack up and plans a journey with her childhood friend, Danny. However, Danny plus one is a troubled 12 year old, his son, an expected addition to the upcoming adventure...

Really enjoyed this. I love a road trip (especially a madcap one in an ice-cream van!) - this one made me laugh and taught me a lot about geography! Also made me think in places, and (without spoilers) I loved the ending.
