More to Life Than This – Carole Matthews

3 Jan

Synopsis – Kate Lewis is thirty-five and feeling restless. Her husband Jeffrey is keen on gardening and golf; her children are obsessed with well-balanced diets; and Kate’s main worry is when to do the ironing. There must be more to life than this!

Enrolling on a T’ai Chi course at Northwood Priory with her best friend Sonia – and arranging for an au pair to look after Jeffrey and the children while she’s away – Kate is off to find herself. But, as things turn out, finding herself isn’t easy to do, particularly when Ben Mahler is on her course…

My Thoughts – This book was a lovely little quick read. It’s ‘chick-lit’ so it wasnt a taxing read, but lovely for reading over the bank holiday when i didnt feel like doing much. The Story centres around Kate and Jeffery Lewis who seem to have everything but are both really quite unhappy. So Kate goes away for the week and all manner of things happen. I like how the narrative switched between four of the main characters. It flowed very easily and wasnt at all complicated to follow. I did find the ending a little odd. The fact that they seemed to live happily ever after.

This was the second Carole Matthews book that i have read and i enjoyed this one too. Will definitaly be looking out for more of her books in the future.

Rating – 3.5/5
