Review: Tumbledown Manor

Tumbledown Manor Tumbledown Manor by Helen Brown
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Middle aged woman finds out her husband is cheating. She divorces him, goes back home to Australia, buys the old family home which is in shambles, rebuilds her life, finds a new love and lives happily ever after.
In a nutshell, that would describe the book for me. The story resembles many other books I have read before, which is not good, but the good part is that the characters in this one are pretty unique.

A cat called Mojo and a parrot called Kiwi are on the top of my list, plus an assortment of lovely young people: Lisa's (the mc) kids, their friends, her eccentric sister Maxine, the Grey Army. And the not so unique: her cheating husband, his cliché of a girlfriend and the spoiled daughter. The boyfriend is forgettable, as is the "secret" surrounding the Manor. This part of the plot is just not necessary. It doesn't add anything to it.

2.5 stars rounded up to 3 because in spite of all my complaining, it was a very pleasant read.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
