Did you ever tell a really good joke which elicits only uncomfortable silence from the room, and then maybe a few less friends? Do you regularly laugh out loud during the gross parts of horror movies?

After going through the menopause Lyn finds that she no longer wants sex. This is unfortunate, as her husband Neil still does. When he discards her after 35 years of marriage like an old worn out shoe, Lyn moves to Cornwall to start a new life. However, new friends are hard to find, and she feels lonely. On the spur of the moment she decides to join an online dating site, ‘MatchULike’, just for companionship. Amongst the peculiar people she meets is Peter; shy, and conscious that his ‘gentleman’s’ operation has rendered him an unattractive prospect in the marriage stakes. Lyn makes a friend of Peter, but when Neil gets to hear about the friendship he realises too late that there is more to a relationship than just sex, and he suddenly starts to appear back on the scene and wants to turn her life upside down all over again!
Review by Annette Rochelle Aben:
As a post-menopausal woman, myself, I found myself laughing, cheering and smiling the entire time I was reading this book. The stresses of both the husband and the wife were very real and I found myself wanting everything to work out the best for each. In order to get through this ubiquitous growth process, it takes a lot of humor, compassion and patience. Turner does an excellent job of infusing each of the characters with plenty of emotion and dimension, so much so, that I was able to find a connection between nearly everyone in the book and people in my own life. Grab this book, give it a thoughtful read and enjoy yourself. I will read it again and again! This is a good-natured look at what can be one of nature’s most unpleasant experiences.
