Review: All That Mullarkey by Sue Moorcroft
Revenge and love: it's a thin line... The writing's on the wall for Cleo and Gav. The bedroom wall, to be precise. And it says 'This marriage is over.' Wounded and furious, Cleo embarks on a night out with the girls, which turns into a glorious one night stand with... Justin, centrefold material and irrepressibly irresponsible. He loves a little wildness in a woman and he's in the right place at the right time to enjoy Cleo's. But it s Cleo who has to pick up the pieces of a marriage based on a lie and the lasting repercussions of that night. Torn between laid-back Justin and control freak Gav, she s a free spirit that life is trying to tie down. But the rewards are worth it!
Sue Moorcroft's book All That Mullarkey was very enjoyable.
Set in England, it was a fun and easy read, but also freshly modern.
The well drawn characters seemed people you would know in life, neighbours or friends.
The only nit pick I would have is that some of the secondary characters' names were alike, Gav and Gez made me stumble a few times. However, that is only minor.
I read this book on my Kindle and it was very well priced.
