Review: A Life of My Own by Denise Skelton

A Life of My Own by Denise Skelton

Publisher: First Chance Publishing 
Pages: 320 
Format: book 
Buy the Book: Amazon  

Goodreads:  Two unappreciative teens, a verbally abusive husband, and an aggressive and interfering ex-wife is a “normal” part of her life. One Saturday morning when Liz’s husband barks at her to, “Git your ass to the store and git my beer, woman,”. She literally ran into someone who gave her unexpected but much needed advice. Liz decides it’s time to get a life of her own. Traveling from Pennsylvania, to Michigan, to Washington State, she learns about friendship, happiness and love. Moreover Liz discovers who she really is.

Kritters Thoughts:  A great chick lit for our older crowd with the main character, Liz who has endured an abusive relationship decides after a chance encounter with a stranger to leave the relationship.  A book that ends up being a road trip of sorts to enable Liz to find out who she really is and what she really wants out of life.  

I absolutely loved taking the road trip with her and meeting all the people she encountered.  In each small town she makes friends, finds a temporary job and makes a temporary home.  This trip felt real and her interactions with these people were so genuine - I felt her growth with every new city.  She had some ups and downs, but it was fun to be the reader and be along for the ride.

A book that I would definitely recommend to fans of the chick lit genre.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
