I am blabbering about how I m really engrossed in Judy Astley s am blabbering about how I m really engrossed in Judy Astley s when he probably wants to now when his dinner will be readyI really warmed to Viola she is such a likeable character and from the start I could feel her shining out from the pages I really got behind her in the book she always remained so positive even though people around her were giving. Orsche into a wall No wonder her family always believes she needs Looking After and her friends think she really shouldn't be allowed out on her ownWhich is why at the age of thirty nine she finds herself shamefully back.
Summary I Should Be So LuckyThis is the first ever Judy Astley i have read and i have to say i loved it Not only has it a lovely story that weaves the reader in and out of different problems in life but it is also written properly with words that are rarely used now But in contrast it also has slag where its needed The story unfolds and is pure delight to the reader as the family starts to fall apart but is brought together as the secrets unfold I feel this will
be the Judy Astley i ll be reading Some books you read for please some to educate and some because you feel you should Judy Astley s books are very much a pleasure all be it a guilty one Her style of romantic fiction is just right for those occasions when you need something that won t tax the mind and can be dipped in and out of easily This is not to say they are not well written because they are This ind of fiction is formulaic and predictable But it s that very predictability that I find so appealing at times Almost from the word go you now how the story will end But it has never been about the destination about the journey Judy Astley takes her readers with her on a journey through almost ordinary lives but ones that have just enough of a twist and turn to make them a journey through almost ordinary lives but ones that have just enough of a twist and turn to make them I should be so Lucky the main character Viola fights to some independence for herself and her 14 year old daughter one year after the death of her second husband But as is often the case her biggest problem seems to be her own brother and sister who for reasons of their own want her to sell her property and continue to live with their mother Viola and her daughter Rachael return to their old home and begin to rebuild their lives Viola has a new man in her life sort of but he may not be all he seemsThere are family secrets misunderstandings and a midnight visit to AE to contend with in what I found to be a very enjoyable escape from the serious books I have read of lateThis is actually the perfect summer read It is light and frivolous packed with humour The twists and turns of the plot are predictabl. Viola hasn't had much luck with men Her first husband Marco companion of her youth and father of her only child left her when he realised he was gay Her second Rhys ended his high octane fame filled life by driving his Her a hard time Viola came across as a positive caring woman who really just needed to be given a chance to glow and be herself I thoroughly enjoyed her character and I would absolutely love to be her friend in real life The supporting characters were also very well written I loved reading about both Rachel and Naomi s relationship with Viola and seeing how the trio interacted with each other Gregory was simply wonderful I fell in love with him straight away I did however have a problem with the siblings I really wanted to give Kate and Miles a shake but especially Kate and tell them to mind their own business about things Well done to Judy for creating such strong characters that the reader will take a bit of a dislike to because it takes some skill to get that right and Judy has done a fantastic job if she is provoking such a range of emotions from her readersI Should Be So Lucky is an easy light hearted read with some funny moments thrown into the mix too A personal favourite of mine is near the beginning when Viola has puncture in her tyre whilst she is driving ending up on the middle of a roundabout at night As if that wasn t bad enough a man called Gregory springs out of nowhere wearing what looks like burglar clothes as he is dressed in black and is actually secretly digging a hole in the earth prompting Viola to uickly assume that he must be a serial iller and is now digging a grave in which to hide a corpse I laughed so much that I cried As it turns out he s only trying to secretly plant a uince tree Reading about his night time adventures did make me want to buy anot be the
"small tree and sneak off into the darkness to plant it preferably alongside my very own Gregory "tree and sneak off into the darkness to plant it preferably alongside my very own Gregory may even try that one dayI thoroughly loved I Should Be SO LUCKY AND I WAS UITE SAD TO FINISH Lucky and I was uite sad to finish I can safely say this book is a firm favourite of mine I won t spoil anything for you but Judy Astley has created a fantastic story with very well written characters and I m certain it will be a big hit I enjoyed it although it did take a while to get into At home living with MumViola nows she has to take charge; she needs to get a life and fast With a stroppy teenage daughter a demanding mother and siblings who want to control her life for her where is she going to turn.
