The Story


Sometimes, to find love, you have to be a little accommodating…

Cath Beckinsale is in a jam. She’s a single mum of three, with her 40th birthday in sight and a precarious hold on employment. And she can’t quite let go of her late husband Gaz, whose ashes are still in an urn on the kitchen table.

To make ends meet a student lodger seems like the perfect solution – after all, what’s one more child in the house?

But when Dan flies in from the US with guitar and chest hair on display, it’s immediately clear that he’s no teenager, but someone who quickly sends life in an unexpected direction.

My Review: The Accidental Housemate

Show of hands (emoji’s work) what age group do you usually read when it comes to romance novels?

I’m usually reading about characters who are in their late 20’s or early 30’s.

As for The Accidental Housemate, I came across this gem of a book whose MC is my age, has three children (see how it’s ticking off all the relatable boxes), and her partner was an engineer (my engineer is still with me). What I absolutely LOVED about this book is how it had me in literal tears from the belly laughs throughout the entire book.

Thomas writes a story that’s a glimpse of a moment in the life of a single mother, focusing on friendship, grief, and motherhood, this book will wrap you in a warm hug, holding you tight, while keeping you laughing long after the last chapter.

Mother’s will get the hilarity of trying to be the best parent, but knowing, all to well, the critical eye others have for our parenting skills.

A Few More Thoughts

With a delicious romance, heartwarming moments between mother and her children, and captures the real and rawness of life, Sal Thomas is on my auto-buy list.

Don’t hesitate to pre-order The Accidental Housemate.

Happy Reading ~ Cece
