When bestselling romance author Chloe Piper’s marriage implodes a week before Christmas, she flees her cheating ex and the village gossips for the solitude of the newly built Sunny Meadow Farm and the company of her hapless dog, Ronnie.

But Chloe is soon pushed out of her comfort zone. Because with a lively development building crew – headed up by charming Alex – and a larger-than-life neighbour determined to make Chloe’s love life her pet project, Chloe finds herself in a whole new world of chaos…

I am a huge fan of Carol E. Wyer / Carol Wyer’s thrillers – I’ve probably read all of them and can’t wait until another one releases. Today’s book, Suddenly Single is the first “comedy” type of book written by Ms. Wyers that I have read.  I’ll be honest – I prefer the thrillers over this type but it was good book overall.

Chloe Piper is a bestselling author, but after years of marriage to William she finds herself suddenly single when her husband admittedly cheats on her. Chloe decides to move 20 miles away and into a beautiful countryside home at Sunny Meadow, a new housing community, with her pup and loving companion, Ronnie, to try and start over again.

Chloe`s best friend and agent, Faith is expecting a manuscript for Chloe’s next book, except Chloe has “writer’s block” because she planned to write her book based on gossip she received from William, and obviously that isn’t happening. 

While Suddenly Single is a fairly short book, the characters are well written with their quirky and endearing personalities, and the story is well developed. I think Ms. Wyer did an amazing job allowing readers to see life through Chloe’s eyes and feeling what it feels like to have severe social anxiety.  I love how Chloe was able to stand up for herself and to push herself out of what she felt was her comfort zone. 

Suddenly Single had some funny moments that I really liked too.  Overall, I enjoyed this book about friendships and love, and new beginnings.

Suddenly Single by Carol Wyer Carol E. Wyer who also writes as Carol Wyer is an award-winning author whose humorous books take a light-hearted look at getting older and encourage others to age disgracefully.
