Champagne for Breakfast by Maggie Christensen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This made a lovely fresh change from my usual reading, its great to get a different genre and break things up a little as a regular reviewer.
I was so glad to get the chance to read this. It was gifted to me in the post. My first thoughts were for the cover, a pretty mature young woman on the cover with the water and boats behind. Nice open blue skies. So first off the cover was inviting, and being a "mature" woman myself of a certain age, it was refreshing to read that yes, older woman [and men] still can pull!!!
Rosa is celebrating her 50th birthday alone after breaking up with her boss, a relationship that lasted 6 years. Like so many affairs with married men, do they really leave their wives? The percentage is low on that one. So of course, her Boss was never going to leave and marry her.
She can't stay in the same firm working for him can she, so she needs to look for another job. She finds a new job but within the same company and now meets Henry. Henry escaped some scandal, which we later find out.
Its not just a mature love story this, its a great read with some hidden agendas behind it which made it much more than 'just a romance'.
The writing is well thought out as is the story line.
And what a great title.
If you are looking for a nice easy read, something to curl up with, then you won't get far wrong with this.
