Today on the blog is my review of About Last Night By Catherine Alliott. Published by Penguin Books. I received and ARC in exchange for a free and honest review.
Molly has traded London for a dream home in the country – except it was her husband’s dream, not hers. And David is, well, rather dead now.
So when a distant relative leaves her a London townhouse, Molly is ready to quit ‘The Good Life’ and return to her good life.
But there’s a rather tall, handsome problem – a man who’s already living in Molly’s new house. And when a face from her past reappears, she’s no longer quite sure where she belongs.
Do any of the men in Molly’s life have honourable intentions?
Is she ready to ditch muddy wellies for high heels?
Or is she saying goodbye to the delights of country life too soon?
Catherine Alliott is one of my go-to authors. If I need to read something I know I will enjoy. I find Catherine’s book like a loyal friend they never let me down.
In About Last Night we meet Molly, her husband has died leaving her with three kids and a dilapidated farm and a plethora of animals. When a relative leaves her a fancy townhouse, Molly’s life path takes her on a road of adventure and self-discovery.
The book took me a little longer than usual. I did have a hard time connecting with the characters at first. I think because with Catherine’s books I am usually in tears with laughter or cringing with ooh’s and ahh’s at the awkward moments. But with About Last Night I didn’t have those moments, it wasn’t a bad reading experience, it was just very different from what I anticipated.
The cover is very different from her others and I don’t know if it would appeal to me if I didn’t already know I loved the author. Usually, Catherine’s book covers have the same sort of theme.
With a host of memorable characters, this is a book of self-discovery and learning that our past mistakes do not define us. I highly recommend you add it to your TBR pile along with Catherine’s other titles.
