Smorgasbord Bookshelf – New book on the Shelves – #Life #Change – Linda’s Midlife Crisis by Toni Pike

Delighted to share the news of Toni Pike’s latest release – Linda’s Midlife Crisis…

About the book

Meet Linda Lockwood: fifty, fat, frumpy and bullied by her horrible husband Ron and the vile students and principal at the school where she teaches English. But her life is about to undergo a total transformation.

Linda suffers a breakdown after a traumatic classroom incident, and that brings out the worst in Ron and devious principal, Wayne Forsythe. Then she is rocked to discover her husband has a shocking secret.

With her own determination and the help of friends and family, she starts to turn her life around. Her own success might be the best revenge, but life still has some more surprises for Linda.

An early review for the book

In Toni Pike’s Linda’s Midlife Crisis (2022), Linda Lockwood finds herself fifty years old in a job she hates–teaching in a dysfunctional High School, married to a man she no longer loves–doesn’t even like, living in a house she likes even less. She tolerates all of this by eating too much until one day, she snaps and decides to make some changes. If you think it’s impossible to redo every part of your life at the advanced age of fifty years old, you haven’t met Linda. She’s a clever woman and chips away at problems one at a time, in a logical way with planning and fortitude. Piece by piece, she remakes her life. To tell you more would be to give away the plot, but trust me, it is fun, believable, and you will finish the book thinking, “I can do that”.

I’ve read other books by Toni Pike and find them fast moving, enjoyable, with characters I grow to like. This book was the same. Highly recommended for those who enjoy a good story with a satisfying ending.

  2. I loved your review, Jacqui and how you described Linda as a clever woman having the courage to remake her life after fifty. A role model of hope for all women out there and especially for women who are stuck in a life they dislike.
