Oh! What a Pavlova – Isabella May

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?



My review

When I read a book about domestic violance, I always have the urge to want to slap the victim. (sorry no pun intented LOL). Why does he/she keep up with it? Why does he/she not simply leave and go for a better life? But on the other hand, I understand why they don’t to it and stay and undergo everything.

In this case Kate is the victim but she has a rebellious streak as well because she does (try to) fight back.

This aspect is only one of what is going on in this story. It really is a mixture of many emotions, but not all are bad. There are some funny bits and without true friendship, where would you be?

The only downside for me was that the part about her professional life was too detailled compared to her personal life. I would have liked to have it more balanced.

This was a book that gave me mixed emotions. 3 stars.

Thank you, Isabella May and RachelsRandomResources.
