My Review of The Art of Hiding by Amanda Prowse

Welcome to my review of The Art of Hiding by Amanda Prowse!

What They Say:

Nina McCarrick has it all: a loving husband, two beautiful boys, a well-appointed home and more time than she knows what to do with. Life is perfect. Until her husband, Finn, is killed in a car accident and everything Nina thought she could rely on unravels.

Alone, bereft and faced with a mountain of debt, Nina quickly loses her life of luxury and she begins to question whether she ever really knew the man she married. Forced to move out of her family home, Nina returns to the rundown Southampton council estate—and the sister—she thought she had left far behind.

But Nina can’t let herself be overwhelmed—her boys need her. To save them, and herself, she will have to do what her husband discouraged for so long: pursue a career of her own. Torn between the life she thought she knew and the reality she now faces, Nina finally must learn what it means to take control of her life.

Bestselling author Amanda Prowse once again plumbs the depths of human experience in this stirring and empowering tale of one woman’s loss and love

What I Say:

Nina is one of those characters that you develop mixed feelings for. I thought she was an insufferable snob to begin with. But when her world crumbles around her, she has no choice but to face reality and become a different person altogether.

Her 2 boys, Connor and Declan are a huge part of what I loved about this book! Little Dec is so sweet and I really enjoyed following their evolution. Tiggy is also a great, warm and funny character.

The journey we're taken on in this book is quite familiar to me. Not on the scale Nina faces, but enough that I completely empathize with her.

I am so grateful to have an author like Amanda Prowse writing books about normal women and families! They each teach us something and give us something unique to take away from the story.  11/10

Thank you to Amanda and Simeon for allowing me to read an advanced e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
