When Life gives you Lemons - Fiona Gibson

Sometimes life can be bittersweet... 

 Between tending to the whims of her seven-year-old and the demands of her boss, Viv barely gets a moment to herself. It's not quite the life she wanted, but she hasn't run screaming for the hills yet.

 But then Viv's husband Andy makes his mid-life crisis her problem. He's having an affair with his (infuriatingly age-appropriate) colleague, a woman who - unlike Viv - doesn't put on weight when she so much as glances at a cream cake. 

Viv suddenly finds herself single, with zero desire to mingle. Should she be mourning the end of life as she knows it, or could this be the perfect chance to put herself first?

 When life gives you lemons, lemonade just won't cut it. Bring on the gin!


Firstly apologies in the delay in my blog stop for this

When life gives you lemons is a light hearted read that hits the feels at times but makes you laugh out loud and has you rooting for Viv from the beginning. 
Viv is a hardworking mum of a seven year old and an older teen between work, her daughter and trying to navigate her ever changing hormones she literally has no time left, but her husband Andy uses her lack of time to start an affair with a co - worker, how much to Vivs frustration is totally age appropriate and his midlife crisis kicks in.

Finding herself alone, battling drama at her work and trying to stay a float a gin is most certainly needed. I loved Viv and her fabulous friends who are urging her to for once put herself first. In doing so there is certainly some laugh out loud moments as Viv finds her feet in her new life.

This will make you feel good as you follow the story and helps you look for the positives in some of the most negative situations in life.
