#BookReview: The Mysterious Miss Mayhew by Hazel Osmond

Reviewer: Michelle

the mysterious miss mayhewI received a review copy


Tom doesn’t need any more women in his life. He already has his hands full with his five-year-old daughter, an estranged wife who keeps blocking his efforts to get divorced and a mother who might be having an affair with the vicar. So when Fran Mayhew turns up – years younger and with all the tact of a dinosaur with its backside on fire – she’s just another tricky person to deal with…And what’s she doing in his remote part of Northumberland crawling around in graveyards anyway? But soon Tom discovers that there’s more to the mysterious Miss Mayhew than meets the eye – and that it’s not just his heart he’s in danger of losing.


Tom already has his hands full with the women in his life. His young daughter Hattie keeps him on his toes and his soon to be ex wife drives him nuts. When a woman named Fran Mayhew keeps appearing in his life, he falls in love with her weird personality and strange hobbies. He begins to wonder what her significance is…

With the right amount of humour and scandalous scenes, this novel is great in its own way. I really loved Tom’s character and his relationship with his daughter. Being a single parent is tough and it was evident that he was doing a great job. I think the author did a great job portraying the view point of a man. Tom’s ex Steph was a great character too and at times I was scared of what she might do next! Overall a great read for someone wanting something other than the norm.
