The Woman who Upped and Left- Fiona Gibson


Audrey is holding down two jobs to look after her teenage son, who takes her for granted. When she wins a national dinner lady competition she is tempted to take the cash prize. But then decides to take the alternative prize of a French cuisine course in a plush hotel.

The characters are so engaging, with their own flaws. She meets the other people on the course and they find her refreshing.

It’s a really amusing read- with many familiar situations that other parents with teenagers may recognise!

She surprises her son when she goes on the course- and just what might she come home to, after leaving an 18 year old in charge of her house. We’ll soon find out!

With many thanks to Net Galley and the publisher Harper Collins UK, Avon for the chance to read this one in exchange for an honest review.
