Take Mum Out by Fiona Gibson.

This was such a fun book, telling the story of a harassed and very busy Mum of two teenage boys who dares to re-enter the dating scene after many years away from romance.

Alice is such a warm, realistic and genuine character that you'll fall in love with her straight away.  Her two teenage boys, whilst being the typical teenagers in some senses, really restore your faith in teenagers as being caring and fun to have around rather than spending all their time moaning and being moody!

Alice agrees to go on three blind dates which are set up for her by her three best friends.  Its really interesting to meet all the new characters introduced into the book this way, some of whom you hope to read more of, and others who make you cringe!

Despite dealing with some very real insecurities, this book is filled with love and laughter.  Alice is a real trooper, she doesn't let anything get her down.  Her busy family life only makes you envious of her drive and determination to make a better life for her family and find herself some romance.

All in all this is a really fun, warm book, and will have you giggling and cringing in equal measure!

The back page blurb:
Three blind dates
Two teenage boys messing up her plans
And one man who'll melt Alice's heart.
'You need to get back in the saddle…' Alice despises that phrase. She's fine being single – with two slothful teenage boys and a meringue business to run, she has enough on her plate without negotiating the troublesome world of modern dating.
However, Alice's three best friends have other ideas. Each one will present her with an utterly delicious, eligible man – all Alice has to do is pick her favourite.
