LoveReading View on Out on a Limb

A warm and funny read that keeps you turning pages to see which dysfunctional relationship will be in the spotlight next. Although things may not seem to be going too right for many of the characters as the story unfolds this is an optimistic tale about love and relationships. Good fun.

Out on a Limb Synopsis

‘My mother has just the two modes of operation. Either slightly dramatic or seriously dramatic. That this is the latter means just the one thing. That my day is about to get worse…’

And for single mum, Abbie, life is complex enough. So once her eldest son, Seb, has gone on his gap year, she’s decided it’s time to make changes. She’s just left her old job and started a new one (to escape the gorgeous man-who-turned-out-to-be-married), and is planning some space for herself at long last.

But fate seems to have something else in mind for Abbie, in the shape of her demanding and incorrigible mother, whose feckless fourth husband, Hugo, has just died. Temporarily in a wheelchair after a recent knee op, Diana – retired TV fitness icon and dancer – will need looking after, so will have to move in. Still, Abbie tells herself - gritting her teeth - it  won’t be for more than a few weeks…
 

However, Abbie hasn’t figured on the sudden arrival of Hugo’s 20 years’ estranged son. A suave TV Weatherman, Gabriel Ash not only owns the deeds to what they thought was Hugo’s house, but also has plans of his own…
