Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I am a huge fan of this talented author who has given me much pleasure in the past. She sets her astute comedies amongst the 40+ age group, and really nails the problems facing so many women today. This is her fourth novel and I can recommend them all. I think sheâs great.

Comparison: Mavis Cheek, Adele Parks, Lou Wakefield.
Similar this month: Kathleen Flynn-Hui, Wendy Holden.

Synopsis

Fanning Old Flames by Jane Blanchard

Maggie, just turned 40, mother of two and wife to Garth, is at a crossroads in her life. She's a secretary at an estate agency with a particularly awful boss but when he sells out to Home Truths, she is promoted and now works at an estate agency with a difference - one which tells its clients the truth about how compact a property is, the damp etc… and her new job does wonders for her confidence and self-worth.

At home she begins to be more adventurous too, questioning her family's behaviour and demanding a bit more respect and even risking Garth's wrath by going to a health farm and then a holiday with her friend Pam.

As Maggie's marriage goes somewhat downhill, she thinks about what COULD have been if things had gone differently when she was younger. She gets in touch with an old flame of hers - Jake - who has been on her mind recently and discovers their falling out so many years ago had been a misunderstanding - and the fire is still there.…But is Jake her true love after all these years - or should she remain loyal to her family…?
