My Rating 4 / 5
Monday to Friday Man was one of those books that I saw on the kindle free download chart. It had a number of good reviews so I thought I’d give it a try.
It follows Gilly (with a ‘G’) who is reeling after her fiancé left her weeks before their wedding and she is at a cross roads in her life. She’s about to hit 35 and she’s not sure what she wants to do.
After much soul searching she decides to stay in London and advertise for a Monday to Friday-er – ie: Someone to rent her spare room on a Monday – Friday basis.
The story is very predictable, up until the last line but, that said, it is an easy and enjoyable read and the characters are likeable enough. I did feel that the first half of the story dragged a little; I seemed to read a lot without the story really moving on. But, once Gilly has got to where she needed to, the story moved on and kept me engaged and entertained.
I’m happy to say that this was one of the few free downloads I’ve really enjoyed, and I have a new author on my ‘to watch’ list.
