Kat’s life has become a blur of dirty nappies and sleepless nights. She has moved into the flat above the salon she owns, alone and without Max the father of her children.
To make matters worse, Max has revealed he plans to remarry. Constantly on edge, her babies are taking up all of her time and Max is never around to help.
Diagnosed with post-natal depression, Kat feels more alone than ever.
Will Kat be able to manage alone? Can she find hope and rebuild her life?
Finding Myself is a novel about searching for the light at the end of the tunnel.
Also, available in The Chaos Series
Book 1 Holding Myself
Book 2 Losing Myself
Finding Myself is the third book in the Chaos series, personally I would recommend reading them in order as you don’t want to miss out on Kat’s journey.
It has been quite a journey the author has taken us on following Kat as she struggles to stay in control of her life. This is by no means some chick lit story so if you go into these books expecting that you will be sorely disappointed. This really is so much more. The author tackles quite a few topics, depression probably being the main thread in this book, not just post natal depression but the severe depression that Libby her sister is going through also and how it affects the people around them.
Though depression might be the main thread of the story it is very much a heart warming and realistic take on what life is like with issues that many of us have to face. Kat is such a wonderful character who has really had to put others first for so long and I loved her strength although I wanted to take her away from her life for a while so she could have a bit of a breather and put herself first for a change. I certainly don’t think I could cope with everything she was having to deal with, especially her ex’s mother walking into the flat whenever she chose with clients in toe to have a look at the adorable twins.
Everything really comes together in this book. I was so sad to get to the end as even though Kat is ready to move on with her life I wasn’t ready to leave her and the twins behind. I really hope that the author comes back to Kat in the future as I have a feeling her readers will be begging for more after this one.
Finding Myself is an engaging read that I didn’t want to end. A heart warming and emotional story with characters that readers will take into their hearts. The third and my favourite book in the trilogy.
My thanks to Bombshell Books for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Goodreads rating 5/5 stars.

Victoria J.Brown has always had a passion for writing. When asked at the age of 9 years old, what she wanted to be when she grew up, her reply ‘an author’ was met with a disheartened response, ‘that jobs like that, don’t happen to people like us!’
Luckily, Victoria didn’t listen to this advice and never gave up on her passion. She continued to write while perusing a career in Marketing after gaining a BA (Hons) in Business and Marketing.
In 2006 her eldest daughter was born and then two years later her 2nd daughter came along. Victoria realised in the midst of the mummy madness, that she’d let her writing dwindle and that nappy-changing, sleepless nights and not being able to go to the toilet in peace could not stop her fulfilling her writing dreams. So when her girls were 3 years old and 18 months old, she decided that sleep was over-rated and enrolled at Teesside University. A year later she proudly left with a MA in Creative Writing, some wonderful friendships and a passion for therapeutic writing. While studying for her MA she was also delighted to win a short-story competition judged by Adele Parks, to which she received publication and mentoring from Adele.
After her MA, Victoria concentrated on writing women’s fiction. She loves writing stories that women can relate to. The Chaos Series grew from her own experience of pregnancy, motherhood and life.
Victoria is also passionate about mental health and likes to write of such issues in her stories. Her dedication to mental health and living life to the full has led her down a spiritual path. Through her learning of spirituality she qualified as a Law of Attraction and NLP Practitioner, which she integrates into her writing. Her inspirational blog includes an A-Z motivational journey with weekly therapeutic creative writing exercises. She has developed this further and will soon launch her inspirational shop. The shop has been created to pass on positivity and love to others … you never know when someone may need to see those messages.
Being accepted by Bombshell Books is a dream come true for Victoria, she hopes that her mantra for giving love always and never giving up will inspire others to follow their dreams and passion.
