#BookReview: Check Your Privilege by Ella Vincent

Check Your Privilege by Ella VincentI received a review copy

Ella Vincent wrote a great story of love and friendship.  This is a British Chick-Lit book that I proclaim as a must-read for all chick-lit lovers.  I am still trying to figure out the cover and name of the book…This book is so chuck full of “wonderfulness”, that I thought the cover could have been more enticing.

Her main character, Nancy was married for several years and has two wonderful children, Matilda and Felix.  Her husband, Adam leaves her to go live with his boyfriend, Stephen, because he is ready to face the fact that he is gay.  Nancy and her best friend, Alice are pediatric nurses at the local hospital.

Her life is not as easy financially as it was when she was married to Adam.  And, her happiness level has dropped quite a bit.  Yet, she never gives up.  Her gumption is fantastic!  You find yourself not only liking her, but rooting for her to find love again.

I loved the relationship she had with her friends, family and even her ex-husband.  She has more heart than a lot of others that may have to deal with the issues she is going through.

She is trying to find love online and with blind dates.  When one date is a no-show, she meets a man named Jonny.  He is younger than her, and has some growing up to do (in her eyes).

This story shows texts exchanged between Nancy and her friends, and it is just plain amusing to read.  From the first page to the last, there was never a dull moment.  The story never lagged, and the ending is brilliant.

Go grab this book and let me know what you think!  This book kept reminding me of this song “I get by with a little help from my friends!”.  I was thrilled I read this story.

    I’ve been following Annie’s reviews for quite some time now, and always enjoy her concise and insightful comments. She has a unique way of reviewing a book without “spoiling” the ending! She is definitely a favorite of mine.
