Miriam Smith (A Mother’s Musings)
"Blues, Twos and Baby Shoes" is the third instalment in Gina Kirkham's fabulously funny 'Mavis Upton' series. They can work great as standalone novels but I recommend reading them in order as you really will want to meet Mavis early on and have her as a close friend. She's so endearing, you immediately feel a connection. I guarantee you'll know somewhere down the line in your life you've encountered something as embarrassing as Mavis has! Her madcap ways are an absolute hoot and you can often se ...more

OMG, how can this be the end? I feel like crying, Mavis has been part of my life for so long but as I close the book for the last book I am not sure if we will get more.

Mavis is a firecracker, she has a huge heart and she would do anything for you, even if you are on your deathbed and you irritate the hell out of her.

I am not sure what I can say that I haven’t already, but you need to read and meet Mavis, she is the most amazing woman! Everything that could go wrong will go wrong and in spectacu

Mavis at her finest

If you've discovered Mavis, you will not be disappointed with her further adventures. She'll make you laugh and bring a tear to your eye.

Here's to chapter 4 arriving before too long.

So funny, Gina's third novel had me in stitches. The same old Mavis - but with a baby.

Introducing new characters that were hilarious criminals in a great plot with a twist.

A serious side to the book when needed but generally balanced in favour of humour.

Gina Kirkham has a way with words and I know whatever she writes will keep me thoroughly entertained.

Now, what next? I can't wait! Writing at it's best.

Reading anything featuring Mavis Upton as a main character always feels like catching up with an old friend – the books feel like a memoir embellished with a little silliness, which is what keeps me coming back. I love to pick out the bits that I think are based on real events in these books!
The characters continue to develop over time, this time there’s been a leap forward in time and Mavis finds herself pregnant at the same time as her now adult daughter who was only a kiddie in the first book

Another excellent read about Mavis Upton and her hilarious and poignant moments.
Another book that has had me laughing out loud and holding my breath, kept me guessing along the way too.
I highly recommend this and the other instalments to put a big smile on your face and a warm feeling inside.
Thanks again Gina for another perfect holiday read

Gina was born during the not-so-swinging 50's to a mum who frequently abandoned her in a pram outside Woolworths and a dad who, after two pints of beer, could play a mean Boogie Woogie on the piano in the front room of their 3-bed semi on the Wirral. Being the less adventurous of three children, she remains there to this day - apart from a long weekend in Bognor Regis in 1982.
