Blog Tour ‘n’ Book Review – New Family Required

New Family Required

Sasha Greenhope has a very lovely life. Her marriage is solid, her only daughter is delightful, and the family business is going full steam ahead.

The only blip on the horizon is the upcoming family reunion for her parents 40th wedding anniversary at Chadwell House – the family pile. Sasha just does not fit with her rich family. Her French mother, Delphine thinks everything Sasha does is a faux pas.. And siblings, Adele and Beau, are clearly the favourites, leaving Sasha surplus to requirements

So when Sasha’s husband Ben takes this exact moment to reveal that they are about to go bankrupt, Sasha wants to be anywhere but stuck in a lavish marquee!

Swallowing her pride, and a whole bottle of fizz, Sasha determines to ask her family for help – and maybe even a loan – only to discover that her parents and siblings are all keeping secrets of their own!

Family secrets, warring siblings and a disastrous reunion… what could possibly go right?!

My Review

The premise of “You can’t choose your family” runs through this story effortlessly, ad you can feel Sasha’s awkward reluctance at attending her parents’ 40th anniversary at the family home – or should that be mansion?
As the middle child, she’s always felt she hasn’t lived up to her parents’ expectations, believing her old sister and younger brother were each the favoured child of her dad and mum. While she and her husband are running a business together, a blow to their finances makes her think she’ll be seen as a failure alongside her incredibly successful siblings.
But there are things Sasha doesn’t know about her family members, secrets that come to the fore during her stay there, secrets that make her reflect and reconsider her long-held opinions.
The author presents a story of family dynamics filled with poignant memories, new understandings and the realisation that Sasha has no need for a new family. The one she has is pretty special after all.

I loved this and will check other books by this author right now.
