Must Love Dogs and Wildwater Walking Club author Claire Cook’s new chick-lit novel is about love, forgiveness, and self discovery. Jill is a single mother who dreams about traveling around the world. Instead she has been raising her daughter alone for seven years and helping other women plan dream vacations. When her husband reappears and wants to rejoin her family, Jill has to come to terms with her personal dreams and how she wants to live her life. All of Claire Cook’s novels deal with personal reinvention in one way or another, and this is a strong theme in Seven Year Switch. Not surprising from an author who wrote her first novel in her mini-van at 5:00 AM while her daughter was at swim practice.
The novel is short and some themes could have been cultivated a bit more; however, it’s a quick and fun read. ~~Enjoy~~
