I have just finished reading The not so perfect life of Mo Lawrence by Catherine Robertson and I loved it.

She is a writer based in Wellington and this is her second novel. Her first novel was called The Sweet Second Life of Darrell Kincaid and was based in Britain. The not so perfect life of Mo Lawrence features some of the minor characters from that first novel.

This novel is based in San Francisco and follows the lives of a number of women who become friends. A Kiwi girl, Michelle (Mo) Lawrence, has married an American and they have just relocated with their two kids to San Francisco for hubby's job.

She finds she is lonely and does not have much in common with the locals so ropes in her best friend in England (Darrell Kincaid) to track down her partner's estranged sister Aishe who is living in San Francisco to be as far away from her family as possible.

Aishe is a prickly character that has no time for fools and is seeing her relationship with her 14-year-old son slipping away. All in all a brilliant and well-written novel.

I loved her first novel so snatched this one up when I saw it in the bookstore. I'm now anxiously awaiting her next novel.

I would definitely recommend it to ladies who like a light-hearted story that is easy to read an hard to put down.
