Manic Mondays (2014)

In her old life, Catherine thought she was doing everything right, happily married, raising a daughter and the owner of a very successful marketing business. After her husband announces he wants out because he's with someone else, she is devastated. She walks away from her home and the business, and she and her daughter start over in a new town. In her new life, she meets new friends and pursues new career options while trying to steer clear of Mike, a man she realises she is attracted to, but is holding at arm's length because of the wedding ring on his finger. I really enjoyed this story. I admired Catherine for picking up the pieces of her life and finding the strength to move forward after having her life crash down around her ears. Supporting characters Grace, Steve and Mike brought their own stories and personalities to the book without pulling me out of the main story. I felt a lot of empathy for Catherine for the way her husband treated her and applauded her strength of character and the determination she shows to start over. The struggles Catherine experienced with facing her husband once again, finding a new career path and opening herself up to love again made this book thoroughly enjoyable. Michaela Weaver pens a good story that flows smoothly, keeping the reader engaged with characters that are easy to relate to and connect with. (SH)
