    This book was recommended to me by a keen reader and friend who came across it last year, having seen an article about Ms Wyer in a national magazine I initially thought this would be a chick lit novel How wrong was I Carol E Wyer s debut novel is written in the form of a series of blog entries and is probably one of the wittiest books I have read to date.Facing 50 myself I could relate to the main character s anxieties and by the end of the book I felt I had been sitting talking to my new best [...]
