Marshmallows for Breakfast – Dorothy Koomson

30 Oct

Synopsis – When Kendra Tamale returns to England from Australia she rents a room from Kyle, a divorced father of two, and begins a new job. She’s looking forward to a fresh start and simple life. Kyle’s five-year-old twins, Summer and Jaxon, have other ideas and quickly adopt Kendra as their new mother – mainly because she lets them eat marshmallows for breakfast. Kendra eventually becomes a part of their lives, even though she’s hiding a painful secret that makes her keep everyone – especially children – at arm’s length. Then Kendra bumps into the man who shares her awful secret, and things fall apart: she can’t sleep, she can’t eat, she’s suspended from work, and the kids are taken away by their mother. The only way to fix things is to confess to the terrible mistake she made all those years ago. But that’s something she swore never to do …

My Thoughts – To start with i was a little unsure about this book, as the first few pages didnt hook me too much. But I’m so glad that i perserved, because i ended up really liking this book. It centres on Kendra who is a little bit of a woman of mystery. She has moved back to England under a bit of a dark shadow. She ends up in the middle of a family and has to make choices.
Also, different points of veiw are spoken within this book which i really really liked. I also liked the length of the book, not too long and not too short. i was hooked when i picked up the book too.
I have a couple more books by this author and i cant wait to read them! A good, easy chick lit read.

Rating – 4/5
