When Life Gives You Lemons

The hilarious, heartwarming Sunday Times bestseller is back! Available to pre-order now {"strong"=>["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?
{"strong"=>["When life gives you lemons, lemonade just won’t cut it. Bring on the gin!"]}

At barely five feet tall, she favours massive blow-dries and teetering heels and, although the overall effect is a little scary, I admire her commitment to adding height to herself from both ends

It’s happened again, the night-sweating thing. ‘Christ, Viv,’ Andy announces. ‘It’s like waking up in a swamp around here.’
I blink at my husband as he climbs out of bed. ‘I can’t help it. It just comes out of my body while I’m asleep.’
He winces. ‘Yeah, well, I’m just saying.’
‘But you’re not just saying, are you? You’re telling me off for being a middle-aged woman in the throes of hormonal collapse—’
‘It’s just unpleasant, that’s all I mean.’
He pulls on his dressing gown, tightening the belt with a sharp tug. It’s unpleasant for him? Well, I’m sorry, but along with the sweats I have a few other issues on my plate right now, such as: mood swings, heart palpitations, irrational outbursts and perpetually simmering anxiety that’s ramped up considerably from my usual already significant levels; plus a craving for hefty pud
