My Review

Kate Madison leads a normal life with her Adult kids. Never did it occur to her to have a partner in her life, nor did her mother. All her kids are successful in their career but what troubles her most is that except her son Justin, none of her kids have a personal life. While her children start getting settled in their life, Kate finds her love. But, life is never easy.

The book handles a lot of dimensions in relations. Izzie's relation with Zach is a pointer to whether money should have a role in relations. Whether one should choose a partner on the basis of their career and ability to earn. Justin and Richard's relation is an eye opener about mono-sexual relations and feasibility of having a child through surrogacy. Julies love life is an example of the dilemma to accept the reality we all face when everything is right. William's relation is an indication of complications that could happen when there is a difference of a generation between the couples.

Complicate relations and realistic scenarios are interwoven with finesse. The way emotions are handled in this book is a far cry from how it was done in her previous book.  Overall the book is entertaining, engaging and relatable.

This review is in return of a free book from the publisher
