it was amazing

A genuinely very funny and irreverent debut novel about life, love, sex, double lives, mystery shopping and hot tubs.
Brooke’s a gorgeous young mum who lives in Essex. Her favourite things in life:
1.    Her baby, Paige
2.    Husband Dean
3.    Chardonnay
4.    Hot tubs
5.    OK! magazine
All that’s missing is the hot tub. Brooke's bored at home and wants financial independence, but mostly a hot tub and Dean’s a man with traditional values and he doesn’t want Brooke to work. She secretly takes a job at a nearby country house, meeting the incorrigible Lady Townsend. This unlikely friendship, plus some jaw-dropping events, helps Brooke realise that she’s capable of so much more than she thought.
Dean is a devoted husband and father, and, knowing what Brooke wants most of all in life, he secretly takes up mystery shopping hoping to make some extra money to pay for it. And if he gets some peace and quiet whilst doing so, all the better.
The elaborate web of lies they both weave results in numerous madcap situations, but can their deceit undermine the love that they have?

This book was just hilarious. I read it in a day, it was so easy to get into and flowed really well. I loved the characters and there is an element of not to judge a book by its cover with the character Brooke, people think she is some ditzy blonde but she loves to learn and finds a firm friend in new boss Lady Townsend.

Dean and Brooke are a young couple trying to pave their way in the world. They have dreams and aspirations and have their goals set firmly in stone. They both go to amazing lengths to provide extras for their family and when the book ends on a cliffhanger with the option of downloading what happens next, I absolutely did that and it didnt disappoint. I'm really excited to read more.
