Book Review / Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland

Meet Robin Wilde! You'll make a friend for life and she'll take you on a journey you'll never forget ...

Single mum Robin Wilde adores her six-year-old daughter and loves her job as a make up artist's assistant. She has a wonderful best friend and an auntie who is bonkers, yes, but loves her to the moon and back.

But Robin has a secret. Behind the mask she carefully applies every day, things just feel ... grey. And lonely. She struggles to fit in with the school mum crew. Online dating is totally despair-inducing, and she worries every day about raising her little girl with self-confidence, courage and joy.

What Robin longs for is someone (over the age of six) to share with - someone who's always on her team.

After 4 years (2 months, and 15 days!) of single-mum-dom, it's time for Robin Wilde to Change. Her. Life.

Exciting new opportunities are about to come Robin's way ... Perhaps a man, perhaps the chance of a lifetime ...

What will Robin do with the possibilities she creates for herself? And what potential will she unlock if she takes the leap?

This is just what I wanted to read this summer!  A perfect holiday read that made me laugh and really want the main character, Robin, to 'win the day'.  If I had to pick one thing that I enjoyed the most was the character of Robin.  Following her journey throughout the story was really fun and I  was really hoping that all would work out for her and her daughter.   A part of the story that I really enjoyed was her work life where at the start we see her as an assistant make up artist and to where she ends up at you can't not be emotional for the journey she has taken. 

Heart warming and funny, this is the perfect book to read on a summer's day, whether that is at the beach, by the pool or even at home!
