The Not So Secret Emails Of Coco Pinchard (Coco Pinchard #1) by Robert Bryndza
Coco Pinchard was never a single thirty-something. She married young, had a son, and put her dream to be a writer on hold.
Now her first novel is published. Husband Daniel has greyed nicely into a silver fox, and son Rosencrantz is grown up. It should be time to enjoy life.
That is, until the annual family Christmas when her hideous mother-in-law Ethel comes to stay, and Coco opens her gift from Daniel. It’s not the jewellery she chose, but an iPhone. This marks the start of Daniel’s mid-life crisis and she catches him in bed with a younger woman.
The iPhone becomes a confessional of sorts, through emails to her friends Chris, an ageing trustafarian and Marika a slightly alcoholic schoolteacher. Coco documents her seemingly endless (and often entertaining!) run of bad luck.
Then she meets the hunky Adam and she’s back in the world of dating as a single forty-something...
Read the emails that tell the hilarious tale of Coco picking up the pieces, in this fun, feel good Romantic Comedy.
I was looking for something fun to read after finishing my last book. I can across another of Robert Bryndza's books which I found out was book 3 in the series, so I went to inspect what the other 2 was to find out that I had them already.
So the story line centres around emails from Coco Pinchard to her ex husband, her lover, her 2 best friends, her son and other people. It tells of her life from just before Christmas to September/October that year. The delights that go on and sometimes the laughter comes through at the antics of her soon to be ex mother in law, her ex sister in law and other things that happen throughout the life of Coco. She has some fun times with Chris and Marika. Her son gets into hot water and she HAS to bail him out of things.
I loved Coco so much and felt sorry for her that it blows your mind the life of an author has amongst living a normalish life. Can't wait to read the next 2 books in the series.
