Publisher's Summary

Melanie finds herself single again after years of being one half of a couple. Her friends predict loneliness, frustration, disaster. Her parents are convinced she’s a failure in life. But Melanie is overwhelmingly excited to be able to do her own thing – she plans a programme of behaving badly, after a lifetime of behaving properly.
With her daughter off to university and ex-husband Roger married off at last – to his lamentably young girlfriend whom he accidentally got pregnant at the office party – she has what a teenager would call a Free House, and she intends to make the most of it.
But is the single life quite all it’s cracked up to be?

Enoyable break

I enjoyed this book quite a lot. It was funny in all the right places and not too light. I have ordered some books for listening where I had that uncomfortable feeling down in the soles of my feet that I've done something terribly wrong. I didn't have to get through this book it was just want I wanted, intelligent, chik lit. Not too saccharine and the narrator had a pleasant well delivered voice. This is actually my second Astley book. I am partial to brit chik lit. Astley could do with a bit more sex or any would be nice.
