Mother: a woman considered in relation to her child or children.

Wife: a woman considered in relation to her spouse.

Shouldn’t there be more?

Alison has built her life around her family. Every day she packs lunches, rushes to work, and breaks up her daughter’s squabbles. She’s bored, restless and hungry for some excitement.

Perhaps the charismatic Frank could be what she’s missing. But is Frank all he makes out to be? And what if a new, glamorous life isn’t quite what she needs?


I am excited to be involved in the blog tour for this witty, emotional lovely book. First glance at the cover and I knew I’d be hooked! The blurb caught my interest and as soon as I opened it up and started reading it was clear I was right – this was going to be a great read.

More Than A Mum is a beautifully written book which shines a spotlight on relationships – within the family and those friends we choose to surround ourselves with. This is an emotionally fuelled book – heartbreak and heartwarming, funny and fresh – it truly is a delight to read. It will make you think and leads to pondering questions, decisions and where you go from here…

I don’t have children but I do enjoy stories like this – where the mundane daily living is rocked, questions asked leading to decisions that need to be made.

The author has told an emotionally genuine tale whilst still being a funny and joyful read.

I found this book captivating, witty and an easy read and would happily recommend it. Don’t take my word for it, have a look at the other bloggers involved in this blog tour (see image below).

I organise tours for all genres but I specialise in crime and thriller fiction as that’s where my passion lies. I have been a crime and thriller blogger for nearly 4 years now over at where I share my love of reading.

Many believe only brand new releases are eligible to be taken on tour. I believe that publishing your book is only the start and have organised tours for books which have been previously available for a number of years.
