It was hilarious and made me laugh out loud, it made me angry, it made me sad, it made me cry and made me feel happy. Mia really goes through the motions in this, and there are other characters that I loved to hate, and times I wanted to scream at them. There's a brief mention of covid but then next minute she's in a hospital environment with filthy hands and no mention of any mask wearing or the fact you still can't really visit people in hospital! A shocking event will judder shockwaves through Mia’s life – but will she keep a cat-like balance, or flounder? Sometimes she's way too open - the visit to the GP to get support with her crabs is a stand-out moment.

There were so many instances when reading when I was simply teetering between cringe, disbelief, and also shock at the standard of publishing. I did give Dawn the benefit of the doubt as I know she lives in the US and I wasn’t sure if Mother’s Day could be on a weekday over there – but having checked, seemingly not. The part where the book officially lost me, I think, was when the main character's inner monologue went on this strange fantasy about how she wanted her cat to lick some sort of food off of her back, which was followed by her musing that she understood about the (theoretical) woman she'd heard about who let her dog lick her where dogs absolutely should not lick someone! I did enjoy the development of some of the characters, especially (colleague designer) and how she fought for what she believed to be right within the company, even if it did feel a little half- hearted at times. Secondly – very early in the book it is ‘Mother’s Day’ – but Mia is going to work and her stepson to school – which clearly doesn’t happen on Mothering Sunday in the UK where the book is set.To access your ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose. OK so she loves her cat Pigeon more than her husband Tristan, is irritated by most of her colleagues, has no friends, and has to put up with her husband’s awful ex-wife Belinda for the sake of her stepson Oliver - but whose life is perfect? Die Helden bleiben unsympatisch und vage, die Story vorhersehbar, auch wenn sie nach der Hälfte endlich besser wird und doch noch knapp 3 Sterne hergibt.

In the book she attends a support group for people whose pets have died as she is so scared of Pigeon dying but obviously doesn't tell them her pet is still alive. I didn't get the humour or wit and I haven't read any of Dawn O'Porter's other works to compare them to.DAWN O'PORTER lives in Los Angeles with her husband Chris, her two boys Art and Valentine, cats Myrtle and Boo. She’s a good wife to her husband Tristan, a doting stepmother, she slips on her suit for work each morning like a new skin. She's so lonely that she joins a therapy group for people who are grief stricken after losing their pets - even though her cat, Pigeon, is very much still alive. This is a mature top range rom-com, where the "rom" is on the the periphery and the "com" is what this is all about.
