I've just come back from a week's holiday and this is one of the books I read
THE NEW MRS D
Publication Date: 2014
Four days into their honeymoon in Greece, Bernice and David Dando have yet to consummate their marriage and after having accepted his almost non-existent desire for sex throughout the relationship, Bernice finally discovers the reason; he is addicted to porn. Learning that the love of her life chooses the cheap thrill of fantasy over her is devastating but then, 'every man does it; it’s just looking, right?’ If she leaves the relationship because of virtual adultery, will she be labelled as pathological, overreacting, or even worse, frigid?
When funny, feisty, forty-something Bernice plans the adventure trip of a lifetime, she doesn’t expect to be spending it alone. But as it turns out, unintentionally contributing to a Greek fish explosion, nude karaoke and hilarious misadventures with volcanoes are exactly what she needs to stop fretting about errant husbands and really start living. But when Mr D tries to win her back, Bernice has a decision to make: is this a holiday from her humdrum life, or the start of a whole new adventure?
The New Mrs D is one of the funniest books I've ever read! It is just my kind of humour and is full of embarrassing incidents which just happen to Bernice all the time.
After sending her new husband packing, she decides that she would do all the things on her own that they had planned to do together, so painting lessons, Greek cooking lessons, a volcano tour are just some of them, along with making new friends and realising what she's been missing in her life.
Bernice is funny, lively, adventurous and a good sport. I loved following her around and I was chuckling by the pool and giggling hysterically on the beach at some of her hilarious attempts.
This is not for the easily offended, some of it read like a Carry On Film with the innuendoes! If you're looking for an easy read with likeable characters who are not perfect I would highly recommend you give this a go.
Overall, this was the perfect holiday read for me, especially as I was in Greece too.
I received an ebook copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
