The entertaining companion novel to the best-selling The Sweet Second Life of Darrell Kincaid. Michelle Lawrence's perfect life has been just as she's designed it. But then her husband, Chad, ruins everything by taking a job in San Francisco, about as far from their comfortable family home as it's possible to get without actually emigrating. Up until now, Chad's primary focus has been keeping her happy, and Michelle can see no good reason why this should change. But change it has, and Michelle now has to deal with Chad's increasing detachment, while building a new life with her two small children in a place filled with cat-eating coyotes. On top of that, Michelle's oldest friend is turning against marriage while her newest is a little too obsessed with clean taps. And down the redwood-lined street, there's Aishe Herne, a woman who could pick a fight with a silent order of nuns. Aishe has designed her own kind of perfect life, in which there's room for her, her teenage son and no one else. But when cousin Patrick lands in town like a Cockney nemesis, both Aishe and Michelle must begin determined campaigns to regain their grip on the steering wheel of their lives.

Mo Lawrence featured in Robertson's debut novel; this time she's the central character. A stroppy opinionated lawyer turned homemaker, Michelle loves her life as an American wife and mother. But her longsuffering gorgeous husband is about to turn her world upside down with a midlife crisis and, this time, Michelle can't bend him to her will. Her story is told in parallel with Aishe Herne, an even stroppier single mum to a teenage boy who is determined to keep herself safe from any emotional entanglements. But then her son's tutor falls for her, she finds her carefully constructed world beginning to crumble - and she can't allow that to happen. An earthy, authentic tale of love and loss, Robertson has built on her reputation as a writer of great romantic comedy.

This sounds like one of those books that you can curl up in bed with a cuppa, esecially on these winter nights.
