When Life Gives You Lemons

324 printed pages
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!"]}

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?
