Blog Tour: That Certain Spark – Isobel Hart

A one-bedroom apartment with creeping damp.
Depressed cat, complete with litter tray.
Neither was part of Claire’s five-year plan.
Nor, for that matter, was divorce.
Left with a comfort eating habit that’s costing her a small fortune in ice-cream, and panic attacks flooring her in front of the supermarket meals-for-one, Claire turns to her mum and Mindfulness in
the hope that one of them can help her find real happiness.
She thinks she’s cracked it… but then her past comes creeping back.
Now she has to work out what really makes her happy or risk a life where Ben & Jerry are the only men who matter.

My thoughts:

Born in London, Isobel Hart’s childhood was spent in the Middle East before being sent to boarding school. It meant she had a lot of time to read. Now based in the UK, she writes about what she knows – real women, with flaws.
A romantic at heart, happily married for nearly twenty-five years, her novels focus on relationships – good and bad – and the women at the heart of them. She is ever hopeful others will find their happy- ever-afters or Happy-For-Now’s too.

My thoughts: this was very funny, as is Claire, even though her life’s fallen apart and she’s struggling to put it back together. As a fellow panic attack sufferer, I empathised with how overwhelming things can feel when you’re in the pit of anxiety and nothing seems to help. But Claire has great friends, a great, if interfering, mum and a slightly mad cat, as well as a nice neighbour with an overexcited puppy to help her out when things get bad.

I laughed along with Claire as various mad things happened and cheered when horrible Bella got her comeuppance, and while Claire’s still getting her life sorted at the end, she’s almost there, and now she likes herself at least.
