Everyone deserves a second chance…don’t they?
Jenny Masters finds herself living the modern dream. Wife to a millionaire, living in a mansion and mother to Kardashian-obsessed ten-year-old April, there isn’t anything missing. Until, her whole world comes crashing down, forcing Jenny and April to leave behind their glittering life and start over with nothing.
With village gossip following her wherever she goes, she finds refuge and a job in the new coffee shop in town. As the days pass Jenny fears she doesn’t have what it takes to pick herself back up and give April the life she always wanted to. But with the help of enigmatic new boss Noah, and housemate Elle, Jenny realises it’s never too late to become the woman life really intended you to be!

Jenny has it all , in fact in the first chapter of the book her life seems so unbelievably perfect I had a feeling that something was going to happen. Jenny literally gets the shock of her life over dinner with her husband. What follows is a wonderful story of starting over from scratch. Along the way Jenny meets wonderful, supportive and very interesting people on her road to a new beginning. This book surprised me in a good way on how the author dealt with a few heavy subjects in such an eloquent way. There are lots of challenges ahead for Jenny and her daughter has to get used to a totally different way of living. I loved how Jenny did not wallow in her unfortunate situation. I thought that Jenny’s character was strong in contrast to her husband’s weak character was an interesting comparison on how a couple deals with situations that come up in life, one half of the couple selfish, self centered and childish and the other half (Jenny) selfless , strong and resilient. I really had no idea how this book would end and there are quite a few surprises in this story.
I thought that this was a great story about new beginnings, friendship and what a family truly is.
