Title: Ten Things my Husband Hated
Author: Pauline Wiles
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
My Rating: 5 out of 5
Maggie Moone is happily divorced.
And with her talent for fixing things, she’s perfectly content with her mundane life in the sleepy English village of Saffron Sweeting. That is, until one humiliating March evening when she learns everyone else assumes she’d love to mend her broken marriage.
Determined to prove them wrong, Maggie and her friends concoct a list of ten ways to assert her independence and live large. But her mission to move on leads to unexpected encounters, and Maggie soon finds herself mixing business with pleasure. Is the attractive young Irishman just another item on her list, or is he something more?
Before long, unresolved issues from her past begin to clash, and Maggie is forced to wonder if antagonising her ex-husband was such a stellar idea.
No sooner does she begin to understand what’s important to her, than she stands to lose everything that truly matters.
This is the fourth in the collection of Saffron Sweeting romantic comedies, which can be read in any order. If you like gentle British humour and deliciously resilient heroines, you’ll love Ten Things My Husband Hated.
I really love how we are introduced to the character of Maggie as happily divorced. Maggie is unaware of the rumours going round that she is trying to rekindle her marriage. Maggie is horrified when she discovers what people are saying about her, and with her fiends, she sets out to create a list of things to do in her life to break free.
As Maggie sets about ticking things off her list and finding herself again, I feel like we really get to know much more about her and her personality. Its not an easy journey for Maggie, but it was so nice to be a part of her journey as a rider and see her come out the other side as a different person.
Ten Things my Husband Hated is a really lovely read and leaves you with a real feeling of completeness. We see Maggie change and become a happy and independent woman. I can absolutely recommend reading TenThings my Husband Hated.
