Oh! What a Pavlova
So today here on my blog we are having a birthday celebration for Oh! What a Pavlova by Isabella May. It was released one year ago today. Read on to find out more and for your chance to win a signed copy of The Cocktail Bar. Happy reading.
Kate Clothier is leading a double life: a successful jet-setting businesswoman to the outside world, but behind closed doors, life with Daniel and his volcanic temper is anything but rosy.
Some days – heck, make that EVERY day – cake is her only salvation.
Slowly but surely, the cities she visits – and the men she meets – help her to realise there IS a better future.
And the ley lines of Glastonbury are certainly doing their best to impart their mystical wisdom...
But will she escape before it’s too late?
Happy first birthday to Oh! What a Pavlova. This is a very emotive read that has a very powerful message. Kate is living two lives. this to start with can be difficult to read as it jumps between the two. However its not hard to see which side is which. This is a very difficult subject to write about and Isabella has done it with ease. I found the storyline quite hard to read because at times I just wanted to shout at Kate and rescue her from the clutches of Daniel to make herself a better life. However I do understand why she felt the need for a double life to escape him and to just feel like Kate again, But I felt that cheating on her husband wasn't the way out for her. I loved the cities that were so very well described in the book and the adventures they had within them. I loved all the references to cake and treats, but be warned they will make you feel hungry. This was the first book I have read by Isabella May and I am looking forward to trying some more.
Isabella May lives in (mostly) sunny Andalucia, Spain with her husband, daughter and son, creatively inspired by the sea and the mountains. When she isn’t having her cake and eating it, sampling a new cocktail on the beach, or ferrying her children to and from after school activities, she can usually be found writing. As a co-founder and a former contributing writer for the popular online women’s magazine, The Glass House Girls – www.theglasshousegirls.com – she has also been lucky enough to subject the digital world to her other favourite pastimes, travel, the Law of Attraction, and Prince (The Purple One). She has recently become a Book Fairy, and is having lots of fun with her imaginative ‘drops’! Costa del Churros is her third novel with Crooked Cat Books, following on from the hit sensations, Oh! What a Pavlova and The Cocktail Bar.
