Book Description:

*The #1 Digital Bestseller!*

Funny and poignant with a gloriously realistic cast of characters. I followed Charlotte’s journey avidly, cheering her on all the way. An unputdownable read.’Rachel Burton, author of The Many Colours of Us

Don’t get mad, get even…

Thirty-something Charlotte’s Emsworth’s life is a sickeningly perfect round of charity events, hot yoga, and romantic gestures for sexy lawyer husband James. But, patiently waiting to get pregnant, Charlotte is bored. And when she’s bored, she has a tendency to meddle…

First, it’s her personal trainer Megan’s cheating fiancé, then the gardener Sam’s wife’s ‘late nights at the office’. But soon the meddling, however well-intentioned, lands Charlotte in way over her head, and all the time spent ‘managing’ other people’s lives makes her blind to the cracks appearing in her own…

Getting even is one thing, but what about getting happy?

Perfect for fans of The First Wives Club

My Thoughts:

Charlotte has it all. She has a lifestyle that some would certainly envy although being a social butterfly is something that doesn’t appeal to me. I wasn’t quite sure what to make of her at first as she is part of a world that is quite fake with everyone pretending to be a good friend but would like nothing better than to see the other one fail. Even though she does organise charity events to raise money, she does come across as a bored housewife.

The more I got to know Charlotte though, the more I warmed to her. She did make me shake my head more than a few times at her antics where you just know, no good is going to come from it all and that its going to come back and bite her. It did make for some humorous reading though and I couldn’t help but feel sorry for poor Charlotte when things do indeed come back and bite her.

This was a story that had me go through quite a few emotions. Whilst overall it is a light hearted read, it does cover infidelity for one of which I couldn’t help but feel for the characters involved. It has you routing for Charlotte though and the people whose lives she has meddled in and it turned out to be quite an uplifting and heart-warming read.

Who Needs Men Anyway? is a great book to escape into when you need a pick me up. It’s a reminder that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side as well as how well you really know the ones you love. It’s also a story about friendship and picking yourself up, dusting yourself down and moving on with your life. Charlotte is a fun protagonist who grew on me throughout and I was sad to say goodbye to her by the end. Fun and uplifting, what more could you possibly want from a book?
