Vicky Turnbull has never regretted giving up her career for family life in the suburbs. And apart from being outstandingly good at paintball, no one would ever know that in a past life she was an undercover spy and has been trained to kill a man with her bare hands. Not even her husband, and certainly not the other mums at the school gate.
But beneath the school runs and bake sales, Vicky had never quite said goodbye to the past. So, when a newcomer on the PTA sets alarms bells ringing and MI5 comes calling, she’s determined to prove that despite her expanding waistline and love of pink gin, she’s still every bit the cold-eyed special operative.
When the assignment gets uncomfortably close to home, Vicky must decide if she has got what the job takes after all, and if home is really where her heart is…
If you are after a funny read, then this is the book for you, you don’t even have to be a parent to read it. I enjoyed this book so much and I can see why Faye has won Comedy Women in Print Prize, as this book is just hilarious. It is all about Vicky who is a wife and mother but what they don’t know is that she use to work for MI5, and now they want her back but can she factor the job into her life now that she is a mum and especially when her husband has no clue what she is up too. From the first couple of pages I knew this book was going to be good, when a story gets up laughing right away, that is good. I really enjoyed this book and want to read more from this author. It was a great pick me up.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
