Lizzie’s Christmas Escape by Christie Barlow

31359737  I received a free ebook of Lizzie’s Christmas Escape from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.

It is coming up on the holiday season and Lizzie is ready for a change.  Something, anything needs to happen.  Her daughters have left for uni and her husband Henry is just this vague lump, who watches darts on the telly and doesn’t seem to interact with her at all.  On top of the loneliness, Lizzie is feeling the yearning for a career of her own after years of being a stay at home mum with odd sewing jobs thrown in on the side.   Her best friend, Ann, is dealing with the end of her mother’s life and a promotion at work at the same time.  Throw in a charming, new, single neighbor into this pot, stir well and watch what happens.

This is a great book about middle age, marriage after the kids are grown, depression, friendship  and asking the question, “Is this all there is?”  Very relateable characters and  a story written to make you laugh and cry makes this a great read!
