Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman by Elizabeth Buchan
Rose, a book review editor, loses both her job and her husband of 25 years within days of each other. She is then left to pick up the pieces of her life.
This was a bestseller in Britain and I can see why. It was an enjoyable read and like another book I recently reviewed, Separate Beds (by the same author), would be a very good pick for an afternoon at the pool. Or an airplane ride. My only complaint is that sometimes the flashbacks are confusing and I had to re-orient myself several times.
