#Book review – Family for Beginners by Sarah Morgan

Publisher comments:-

Who says you can’t choose your family?
When Flora falls in love with Jack, suddenly she’s not only handling a very cranky teenager, but she’s also living in the shadow of Jack’s perfect, immortalised wife, Becca. Every summer, Becca and Jack would holiday with Becca’s oldest friends and Jack wants to continue the tradition, so now Flora must face a summer trying to live up to Becca’s memory, with not only Jack’s daughter looking on, but with Becca’s best friends judging her every move…

The more Flora tries to impress everyone, the more things go horribly wrong…but as the summer unfolds, Flora begins pushing her own boundaries, and finding herself in a way that she never thought she needed to.

And she soon learns that families come in all shapes and sizes.

Being published later this month

My thoughts:-


Thank you to HQ and NetGalley for my digital ARC – my thoughts are my own.

This is the third book I’ve read by Sarah Morgan. I enjoyed the first two but this book was even better!

Great characters – three girls who lost their mothers during their childhoods and are dealing with their emotions (two recently, one over 20 years ago), a widower trying to do the best for his children, a best friend who is unhappy about the secret she was left with, a caring teenage boy (rarely seen in a fiction book). Also loved the inclusion of Chase the dog – I do have a soft spot for books which include a dog.

A lovely book to curl up with and enjoy – no spoilers. Being published in ebook in March 2020.
