Maggie Moone needs to move on after her divorce and she has friends who will help her. However, things don't go as smoothly as she would have liked. A career change comes with complications. A new romance develops which makes her life interesting. Maggie is a likeable and endearing character. Her friends are marvelous and add much to the story. The setting is Saffron Sweeting, a small English village, and it is an important part of the story. It is so well presented it is easy to imagine living there. The dialogue, which is often witty, is believable. Food plays an important part in the narrative, too.
This book brings so much to readers. It is well crafted and a pleasure to read. The narrative is interesting and never boring. Highly recommended.

I received a complimentary copy of this book through LibraryThing. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. ( )

Quite a fun and easy read! I really enjoyed the main character: a strong woman with practical skills who manages to turn her life around after a nasty divorce. I wish she was less of a doormat in her relation with her ex at the beggining of the book, but I guess her transformation would have been less dramatic... Great to read by the beach/pool or cosying up by the fire, with a nice cup of tea or mulled wine! ( )

A sweet story set in a small village in England.

Ten Things My Husband Hated is about a woman, Maggie Moone, who is divorced but has not really moved on with her life. With the help of her friends, she makes a list of 10 things that would make her ex-husband crazy. As she tries to get on with her life, she methodically starts checking off the items on her list.

When I first started reading this book, it wasn’t holding my attention. The main character of Maggie was a bit wimpy for me. However, as the story moved on, she started getting stronger and I started enjoying the story more. I loved the character of Finn. He had me at the dream catcher scene which I won’t spoil for future readers of this story.

The village of Saffron Sweeting was another character in the book. You could easily see and feel the atmosphere of what it would be like to live in Saffron Sweeting. That tone, set the book up for a simple, but sweet story about new beginnings and love.

I wish the author had made the “list” meatier and more interesting. The story would have been so much better if Maggie had really committed herself to the list and tried to change her life. As it was, it felt like she was just stumbling into the situations that let her cross something off her list. Having said that, the author did pull the story together by the final quarter of the book, which is why I’m giving it 3 stars instead of 2.

Thank you to Library Thing and Pauline Wiles for the opportunity to read this ARC. ( )

This is the perfect book to read when you have a free afternoon, a cup of tea and a blanket - exactly as I did. After only a few pages I was engrossed in the life of Saffron Sweeting, the quaintest of towns. Maggie Moone, her delightful friends and hideous ex-husband made for a wonderful ensemble of characters that I want to continue to follow after the end of the book. The story was such a delight and a heart-warming and sweet rainy afternoon read. ( )
