Summary

Coco Pinchard always dreamed of being a successful writer, but then life got in the way. She married young, had a son, and put her dreams on hold. But now she's 40, and her first novel is about to be published! Her husband Daniel has greyed nicely into a silver fox, and her son Rosencrantz is all grown up. Shouldn't it be time to enjoy life?

That is, until the annual family Christmas when her hideous in-laws come to stay, and Coco opens her gift from Daniel. It's not the jewelry she chose, but an iPhone. This marks the start of Daniel's mid-life crisis and Coco catches him in bed with a younger woman.

The iPhone becomes a confessional, and as Coco's life unravels, she documents her seemingly endless (and often entertaining) run of bad luck through emails to loyal friends Christopher, an ageing trustafarian, and Marika, a slightly alcoholic schoolteacher.

Then Coco meets the hunky Adam and she's back in the world of dating as a single 40-something. Listen to the heart warming and often hilarious tale of Coco picking up the pieces, in this fun, feel-good romantic comedy.

Not So Secretly a good book!

Having read and enjoyed The Not So Secret Emails of Coco Pinchard book a while ago, I was excited to hear it was been created as an audiobook. Coco had me chuckling at her antics (at a time that our lives seem to mirror each other's) and was keen to hear her and her crazy family brought to life.

Well, she had me 'snaughing' (snorting/laughing) on the bus to and from work on a regular basis (I decide not to look at my fellow travelling companions and just enjoy hearing Jan Cramer bring Coco to life).
I had forgotten some of the intricacies of the stories and quirks of individuals. Hearing Coco getting herself together made me smile and cringe and chuckle. Other people's ridiculousness is so true to life it can only ring bells with some of your own situations (a ridiculous ex, and annoying mother in law, interfering family, and mixed up youths)

Loved it. Well done to Robert Bryndza for a great comedy which stretches between London, America and Edinburgh. Can't wait to hear the remaining stories of Coco come to life x

Not his Best

Not my favorite of his books. the constant reading of email addresses is distracting and annoying.
