About this deal

I would also say the overwhelming feeling for me wasn’t ‘fresh, funny’ but actually probably ‘unusual, sad’. I am not an expert in anything, but just a person with access to the internet who is trying to learn and make sense of the world! The author has clearly never worked in an office - people don’t shout ‘just get back to your desk and work’ at people! If you are looking for an easy but thought provoking read with great characters and brilliant insight into the human connection, then this is the book for you. She sleeps in a separate room from her husband and pencils in sex several times a week - she won't sleep with him because he doesn't want animals in their bed after a strange occurrence.

Nothing much happens in the first half, there’s a bit of awkward social commentary, and Mia reinforces every stereotype about people who love cats. She and her husband Tristan have an unconventional relationship with Oliver's mother, Belinda, but Mia puts up with it for the sake of keeping the family together. I did give Dawn the benefit of the doubt as I know she lives in the US and I wasn’t sure if Mother’s Day could be on a weekday over there – but having checked, seemingly not.However, I thought it was quite problematic that she attends groups that are about particular things that she does not suffer from. Dawn's books are always an absolute pleasure to read, so as soon as I saw this could be requested I tapped it and had everything crossed. DAWN O'PORTER lives in Los Angeles with her husband Chris, her two boys Art and Valentine, cats Myrtle and Boo.

Sometimes she has a bit more than 'it all' - there's her husband's ex-wife who spends way too much time at their house and has way more opinions about everything Mia's doing wrong than could really be considered appropriate.What Mia is truly lacking are friends and she's so lonely that she joins a therapy group for people who are grief-stricken after losing their pets - even though hers is still very much alive. I really didn’t want to cry at this book and I tried so hard not to but it just couldn’t be helped, I finally caved and found myself full of tears.
