Greg Adams, a criminal psychologist at Scotland Yard, specialises in bringing serial killers to justice.

#BookReview : Happy & You Know It by Laura Hankin @PRHGlobal #HappyandYouKnowIt #WomensFiction

Happy & You Know It by Laura Hankin
Publication Date : May 19th 2020
Publisher : Berkley Publishing Group
Genre : Women’s Fiction
Pages : 384

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A dark, witty page-turner set around a group of wealthy mothers and the young musician who takes a job singing to their babies and finds herself pulled into their glamorous lives and dangerous secrets….

After her former band shot to superstardom without her, Claire reluctantly agrees to a gig as a playgroup musician for overprivileged infants on New York’s Park Avenue. Claire is surprised to discover that she is smitten with her new employers, a welcoming clique of wellness addicts with impossibly shiny hair, who whirl from juice cleanse to overpriced miracle vitamins to spin class with limitless energy.

There is perfect hostess Whitney who is on the brink of social-media stardom and just needs to find a way to keep her perfect life from falling apart. Caustically funny, recent stay-at-home mom Amara who is struggling to embrace her new identity. And old money, veteran mom Gwen who never misses an opportunity to dole out parenting advice. But as Claire grows closer to the cool women who pay her bills, she uncovers secrets and betrayals that no amount of activated charcoal can fix.

Filled with humor and shocking twists, Happy and You Know It is a brilliant take on motherhood—exposing it as yet another way for society to pass judgment on women—while also exploring the baffling magnetism of curated social-media lives that are designed to make us feel unworthy. But, ultimately, this dazzling novel celebrates the unlikely bonds that form, and the power that can be unlocked, when a group of very different women is thrown together when each is at her most vulnerable.

*** Note: I received e-copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to PRHGlobal for free copy. ***

Happy & You Know It was dramatic women’s fiction, story of newbie mothers, their playgroup and a playgroup musician who changed everything in their life. It was about motherhood, new moms’ feelings, emotions and mental health, friendship, betrayal, and scam.

Now that I finished this book I really feel great that I wasn’t part of any playgroup or anything that brings loads of competition and make me fret over all milestones. I don’t understand why moms feel they need to push their kids at such young age so that they can do better than other kids or moms! Back to review-

Writing was easy to follow, captivating and emotive. It was multiple third person narrative from Clair, Amara, Whitney and Gwen’s POV. Setting of NYC and houses of rich privileged mothers worked perfectly with the storyline.

It started with epilogue that made me think which mom was running and why and what happened. First few chapters introduced characters and their present life along with the back stories of each characters and how they joined playgroup and met each other. As soon as I started reading book, I knew there was going to be lot of drama. I was curious to find out what will happen in this playgroup and how Clair joining as playgroup musician changed their life and what she did that they might regret hiring her later, and that we don’t know until 60% of the book.

Let’s meet mommies or members of the playgroup- (Amara and Clair were my most favourite characters.)

Amara was not as rich as other mothers, and was struggling with her wailing difficult son, Charlie, who was underweight and was slow to achieve milestones. She felt tired, frustrated, and angry all the time as she was so close to promotion and had to take break from job, because of judging pitiful eyes of other mothers, especially because of Gwen’s endless advices and her perfect daughter. I like her feminist nature, trying to prove the world being black woman in world of men. I felt for her and rooted for her from the beginning. Her worries about not being better mother, missing relaxed and carefree time she had before child, and not having financial independence was realistic.  Her emotional outbreaks and losing control over herself on knowing about the truth was genuine.

Whitney had everything, beautiful baby, handsome husband, money to spend, and was momstgram famous almost like celebrity, but her life was not as perfect as she showed in Instagram. She felt alone and lonely as her husband, Grant, was never there to support, away on business trips more and whenever he was back, they had arguments. He was pompous and arrogant husband who thought he was doing his part, earning money and parenting is Whitney’s job. She had her issues with Grant and I’m not fan of him but that’s no excuse for what she did. I think that was TrueMommy effect but who knows! I might have been okay with it but affair with husband of one of playgroup moms was big No No. I could see how wrong this will go.

Gwen was uptight, rich mom who inherited Brownstone from her parents after they died in accident. Her dad was alcoholic. It had huge impact on her life and biggest reason she chose Christopher as husband as he never drinks. But he had his flaws that Gwen discovered later. She kept showing other mothers how experienced she was and how perfect her daughters are. She was not most likable in group.

Vicki was quiet and dreamy one, lost in her own cocoon with her child who didn’t stay much or involved in conversation. I could relate to her, happy in her own world, not giving f***, just nodding yes or no without arguments and not showing any doubts.

Ellie and Meredith were fun to read. Their inside jokes was funny and I liked their companionship, they fought but also made up. Between two, I like Meredith more than Ellie.

Clair was musician. The band she sang in, Vagabond, kicked her out. We don’t know the reason initially so I was curious to find out what happened. She was wallowing in hurt and humiliation but then her cousin found her job as playgroup musician. Not much but the other option was move back to her parents’ basement in religious town that judged her for supporting her cousin and criticized her cousin for being lesbian. As she started working with glamorous moms, she enjoyed singing for their babies, basked in their praises and also started to know them more. I liked her, she had her flaws, she longed to live better, rich and famous life and she envied mothers for their privileged lives but she was nice.  I didn’t like what she did at Amara’s house but what she discovered was shocking.

I loved the way author explored mom culture and captured emotions of each characters. These moms were constantly trying to be better mother and felt pity for the ones who couldn’t handle their kids, and worst bitched those mothers with others. What I didn’t expect when I started reading the book was so many layers along with the main theme– mental health, rich mothers’ life and their show offs, betrayal, affair, social media influence and its impact in life, race, and wellness program and scam.

“We are all so obsessed with protecting out child, aren’t we?” “That’s how we got into this mess in the first place. We want to paint a lovely picture that we hang over their window to block out how the world really works, to give them these lives. And to do that, we think we need to keep ourselves perfect too. But no mother in the history of the world has been able to protect her child forever. the world barges in through the front door eventually.”

Mystery was intriguing. I couldn’t guess who was behind the scam and how moms would find out about the real culprit. I enjoyed the drama at climax when moms found out Whitney’s affair and betrayal. I still couldn’t figure out why Amara was so mad at Clair who only meant well for them and felt for Clair in getting tangled in their mess. When I read about culprit’s motive for scam, I was shocked. How could a woman can do that! All events from climax to end, mothers’ development and epiphany was best part the book. End was just perfect.

Overall,

Happy & You Know It was entertaining, dramatic, a little dark and deep, and lovable women’s fiction. I highly recommend this to fan of this genre, drama, and to new mommies.

Weekly Wrap-Up (20/6/’20) #WeekinReading #WeeklyWrapup

Hello Readers! I hope you had great week. Last week started slow but then I read more than I expected. I read 2 books last week and finished 3rd this morning.

I watched The Witcher on Netflix and now I want to read books as well. It was amazing. Lot of violence and gore, no filter in anything but world was brilliant. The timeline did confuse me but I could join the dots. I can’t wait to watch second season when it releases.

What I read last week-

Happy & You Know It by Laura Hankin

This was great read, filled with drama,new mothers’ life, their feelings and how life changed after babies. There was many layers in this book and I enjoyed characters’ development.

Tiny Imperfections by Alli Frank, Asha Youmans

I enjoyed reading snarky, sexy and bold Bordelon females and even more seeing them in their elements, Josie as admission director at elementary school, Aunt Viv as a head cook in same school and Josie’s daughter as best ballerina. This was entertaining diverse book.

Paris on Repeatby Amy Bearce

I wasn’t sure at first if I’m going to like it much but as I red more I enjoyed it. I liked the storyline and concept, the way Eve understood love and friendship during her repeat last day of Paris and how she ended the time loop magic by being bold.

Next I’ll be reading-

Don’t Turn Around by Jessica Barry

The riveting follow up to Jessica Barry’s debut Freefall—a controversial, of-the-moment thriller about two women fighting for their right to live.


322 miles of road. 6 hours. 2 strangers. 1 killer. Too many secrets.


Midnight. Cait Monaghan and Rebecca McRae are on a desolate road that slices through the New Mexican desert. They’ve never met before tonight. Both have secrets to protect. Both of their lives are in danger.

When a truck pulls up fast behind them, they assume it’s punk teenagers or run-of-the-mill road rage, but it soon becomes clear that whoever is driving the truck is hunting them for sport—and they are out to draw blood.

As the miles unspool and the dangers mount, the pasts they’ve worked so hard to keep buried have come back to haunt them. Someone wants one of them dead. But which one? And given the lives the two women have been leading, that someone could be almost anyone.

If Cait and Rebecca are going to survive, they’ll have to learn to trust one another—and themselves. But trust is a costly business, and they’ve both paid the price before. . . .

I haven’t read ab book that take place on road and I’m already curious to know what are their secrets and how they are going to help each other and survive. I’m on blog tour for this book on 29th.

Cynthia Smart’s Midwife Crisis by Liz Davies

Midlife crisis? What midlife crisis?

At forty-four, Cynthia Smart is exactly where she wants to be. Almost.

In a couple of years, she’ll be the CEO of the company she’s spent most of her adult life working in. For now, though, she’s still busy shimmying up the greasy pole of corporate business. She’s single, carefree, and independent, and nothing can stop her getting what she wants and deserves.

Until she discovers she’s pregnant.

Determined to have her cake and eat it, she’s convinced that having a baby will make little difference to her life, and that she will be one of those women who can hold down an incredibly demanding job and also be a perfect mother.

But as her pregnancy progresses and her life slowly falls apart, she has the sneaking suspicion that Max Oakland, the new guy on the block, is out to steal her dream job. That she’s terribly attracted to him doesn’t help, nor does the fact that he’s devilishly handsome, appears to be a really nice fella, and is good in a crisis.

When she gradually comes to realise that something has got to give, what she doesn’t want it to be is her heart

I have read A Typical Family Christmas by Liz Davis last year. I enjoyed her writing and I wanted read more books by her. When I saw this tour I couldn’t let it go. Another blog tour read, my stop is on 31st.


 hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know in comments what you read last week, what you are planning to read next, and if you have read any of these books.

Happy Reading!

#BookReview : Cometh the Hour (The Clifton Chronicles #6) by Jeffrey Archer #ComethTheHour #HistoricalFiction #StMartinsPress

Cometh the Hour (The Clifton Chronicles #6) by Jeffrey Archer
Publication Date : February 16th 2016
Publisher : St. Martin’s Press
Genre : Historical Fiction
Pages : 404

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Cometh the Hour opens with the reading of a suicide note, which has devastating consequences for Harry and Emma Clifton, Giles Barrington and Lady Virginia.

Giles must decide if he should withdraw from politics and try to rescue Karin, the woman he loves, from behind the Iron Curtain. But is Karin truly in love with him, or is she a spy?

Lady Virginia is facing bankruptcy, and can see no way out of her financial problems, until she is introduced to the hapless Cyrus T. Grant III from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who’s in England to see his horse run at Royal Ascot.

Sebastian Clifton is now the Chief Executive of Farthings Bank and a workaholic, whose personal life is thrown into disarray when he falls for Priya, a beautiful Indian girl. But her parents have already chosen the man she is going to marry. Meanwhile, Sebastian’s rivals Adrian Sloane and Desmond Mellor are still plotting to bring him and his chairman Hakim Bishara down, so they can take over Farthings.

Harry Clifton remains determined to get Anatoly Babakov released from a gulag in Siberia, following the international success of his acclaimed book, Uncle Joe. But then something unexpected happens that none of them could have anticipated.

Cometh the Hour is the penultimate book in the Clifton Chronicles and, like the five previous novels – which were all New York Times bestsellers – showcases Jeffrey Archer’s extraordinary storytelling with his trademark twists. 

Previous books I read in Series:

Book 1 Only Time Will Tell
Book 2 The Sins of the Father
Book 3 Best Kept Secret 
Book 4 Be Careful What You Wish For
Book 5 Mightier Than the Sword

Cometh the Hour, 6th in The Clifton Chronicles series was interesting mix of historical fiction, politics and family drama that revolved around Cliftons and Barringtons’ life. Like all previous book this too was about good vs bad, morals and principles, good things happen to good people and enemies gets their comeuppance, family, love and drama.

First there was nothing wrong in the book but because of my mood or my itch to just finish the series asap made and other books taking priority over this and it took me way way long to finish this. That taught me to read last book when I’m ready to read it.

Writing was easy to read, addictive and flawless. It was told in third person narrative from Emma, Harry, Giles, Seb, Bishra, and Virginia’s perspective; started in 1970 from where the previous book ended with result of court case against Emma and ended in 1978. Being second last book of the series, lot of things were happening.

After long time we hear about Maisie in this book. She was old lady now and her days were coming close. I loved letter she wrote for Harry, Emma and Seb that gave them new inspiration.

Giles got break from politics for a while, rescued his love behind the Iron curtain and brought Karin to London but she really turned out spy for Russians. I was curious to see what Karin would do, if she would destroy Giles and British government or would fall in love with Giles. (pretty predictable but yet interesting to see the results) I have to admit he was hopeless romantic, and I liked how his career path diverted a little by being appointed as leader of lords and also supporting labour party. Things were okay with him in this book, in fact, smooth and he looked happy but I have feeling next book would be tough for him.

After the case Emma once again came back as chairman of Barrington shipping. Now, after Maisie’s death, she was not just chairman but had became governor of NHS hospital handling nursing department and had joined Tories backing Margret Thatcher as their manager. Phew, she was juggling many things at once and I liked how that didn’t affect her relationship with her family or with Giles. Author keep surprising me by making Emma’s character stronger with each book.

Virginia, after losing case, was facing bankruptcy. She needed to find a way to get money or say good-bye to posh extravagant life and clearly she didn’t intend to let go her life. Soon she saw opportunity when Cyrus T Grant, 28th richest man in America, visited London. Poor guy! This time Virginia was playing big and I was even surprised how far she went and how well planned every step was. I couldn’t believe she got away with all she did. But if you are familiar with author’s style, you must know in all books bad people get their comeuppance, so did Virginia.

Seb fell in love with Priya. He didn’t mind marrying a Hindu but it was different for Priya. She was sure her parents wouldn’t approve Seb being Christian, they were looking for a rightful Indian Hindu man whom she should marry. Her father was influential headstrong businessman who on knowing about her affair took her back to India. I liked the way author portrayed Hindu traditions, Indian ways and mentality during those times. Seb’s journey to India and his plan was impressive. The way it ended was shocking. I didn’t know what would happen next or if he would meet Sam and Jessica again. I enjoyed these chapters every chapters about him and part he played, be it as father, an executive director of bank, friend, son, and nephew.

Adrian Sloan and Desmond Muller had planned something big which would clear Bishra from their path that added tension in the book and soon Bishra got arrested.  It was interesting to read how Seb and Andrew would save him and image of bank, and stop Sloan and Desmond from ruining Bishra’s life. I liked Bishra’s attitude and nature during all these ordeals.

Harry published Anatoly Babakov’s book, Uncle Joe, with his publisher and friend Guinzberg that became international success and formed pressure on Russians to release Babakov. I doubted they would ever release him but that announcement of award heated things up.

I enjoyed conversations between characters. It felt natural and realistic. My favourite scene was court room session and testing of recordings with a little historical fact about Nixon president impeachment.

There were many twists and turns. Whenever I thought now nothing wrong would happen, something popped out of nowhere. Enemies were formidable but main characters were smart and fate backed them at right time.

Climax was shocking, tense and exciting all at same time. Harry’s speech was awesome, I even felt triumphant reading what happened to Virginia, Sloan, and Desmond, and Karin was in such complex situation. End was perfect and so was Epilogue.

Why 4 Stars-

Jessica never felt like 10 years old. She sounded like grown up 20 years old young lady. I even forgot she was just child until it was mentioned. It was a bit unrealistic. And that whole Virginia’s plan and Cyrus agreeing to deal was a little too much.

Overall,

Cometh The Hour was entertaining, dramatic and engaging historical fiction. Not best in series but I liked it.


I hope you enjoyed this post and my review. Let me know in comments if you have read this book or any book by the same author. DO you ever feel impatient when you about to finish the long series and because of that you enjoyed last books in series a little less?

Happy Reading!
