LoveReading View on The Romancipation of Maggie Hunter

A funny heart-warming read . Some very good observations in this, I found myself thinking  “thank goodness I’m not the only one who does that” on several occasions. Instead of struggling to find Mr Perfect and then get him to commit, Maggie Hunter has exactly the opposite problem. The perfect man wants her to live with him and all she can think is she doesn’t want to relinquish her freedom, her flat or her nights in bleaching arm hair. Great characters and good fun.

The Romancipation of Maggie Hunter Synopsis


ro-man-ci-pa-tion noun

The freedom for women to love whom they choose whilst retaining their own space and identity. In other words, the final stage in women’s liberation!

Maggie is living the life she’s always wanted. Her career is taking off and, thanks to Japanese straightening technology, her hair is lying down. Maggie even has a funny, caring boyfriend – but there’s one problem: he wants Maggie to move in.

Maggie’s not sure she’s ready to move from “me” to “we”… As she examines the relationships around her, Maggie has to decide: is she ready to face her fears and embrace her own romancipation?
