Book Review: 'Tis the Season to be Single' by Laura Ziepe.


Not just for Christmas! If you're looking for a new author and a light-hearted read, look no further.


All they want for Christmas…
Rachel is in shock. She was sure that her boyfriend was about to propose – not break up with her! Even worse, it turns out he’s been cheating on her…
Grace can’t bear the thought of spending another Christmas with her lazy, unappreciative husband. Surely it’s time to shake things up a bit?
Amber knows she should be happy that her best friend Jack is getting married, but there’s a little part of her that can’t help think ‘it was always meant to be me’!
With Christmas fast approaching, surely there’s no better time to be single – yet will the three friends manage to keep their promise and ban all men until the New Year?

My Review:

It was my first time reading a book from the lovely Laura Ziepe and I really enjoyed her writing style. I connected with Rachel, Grace and Amber from the get go and all for different reasons. I understood the hurt that Rachel had been through and was right with her as she dealt with the onslaught of emotions that came from her breakup. I was rooting for her to rise above and get through it. Grace I think had to be my favourite. I liked her sweet nature and her story pulled at my heart strings. It made me incredibly happy to see her stand up for herself with her husband and also see them fight for each other. It was truly endearing seeing them rekindle their romance. I liked that Amber was the more independent and confident out of the three ladies. Her attitude towards going after what she wanted was inspiring; she didn't feel that it had to be the man that made the first move all the time. Furthermore, her relationship with her best friend, Jack, was heartwarming; their banter had me smiling and feeling all warm inside. 

This book makes for a wonderful festive read, however it's most certainly one that can be enjoyed all year round. The girls have a strong friendship with plenty of looking out for each other as they navigate the ups and downs of breakups, marriages and falling in love with your best friend. 

Pick up your copy of 'Tis the Season to be Single' now and also check out Laura's next read 'The morning After the Wedding Before,' and it's gorgeous front cover, coming soon. 

Happy reading.
