Publisher’s Blurb: Maia is a cleaner for ladies who lunch. With mops and buckets in tow, she spends her days dashing from house to house cleaning up after them, as they rush from one exhausting pilates class to the next. But an unusual inheritance changes the lives of Maia and her children, as they join the highly exclusive world of Stirling Hall School – a place where no child can survive without organic apricots and no woman goes a week without a manicure. As Maia and her children try to settle into their new life, Maia is gradually drawn to the one man who can help her family fit in: Mr. Peters, a teacher at Stirling Hall School. But is his interest in her purely professional? And will it win her any favors at the school gate?

The Author: Kerry Fisher is the bestselling author of five novels, including The Silent Wife and The Secret Child. She was born in Peterborough, studied French and Italian at the University of Bath and spent several years living in Spain, Italy and Corsica. She is married with two children and her dog.

My Thoughts: Kerry Fisher is the new author I have been looking for……. After reading ‘The Silent Wife” a few months ago, I have plunged into buying her books with reckless abandon and with no regrets. Maia’s story is the story of a modern day Cinderella but with laughs on almost every page. Her life with her partner Colin is one so common with so many women who remain stuck in relationships that they have ended a long  time ago. Maia was lucky to be given an opportunity to better the life of her kids when an old client passed on and willed money for her two kids to attend the prestigious Stirling Hall School. Not having enough money or cleaning jobs to put food on the table or keep her creditors away, she still struggled to try to give her kids the best. Fitting into the Stirling Hall School crowd was tough but thanks to friends like Clover who accepted and befriended her and the handsome Mr Peters who loved her. A romantic comedy which has well balanced funny, happy and sad moments with a happy ending  but not for everyone especially Colin.  The great thing about this book is the humor on almost every page and the truth about life that comes with it. I will definitely be reading quite a number of Kerry Fisher books in the new year and I recommend that you do the same.
