My Monthly Book Review...Marriage & Mayhem for the Tobacco Girls by Lizzie Lane



Marriage & Mayhem for the Tobacco Girls by Lizzie Lane.

If you have been following me for a while, you will know that I love this Bristol based series. Not just because Bristol is where I was born and bred but because of the humour, authenticity and likeability of the whole cast of characters. The three main characters of the series, Maisie, Bridget & Phyllis are fabulous, OF course, but there is so much going on in each book that you become entirely entrenched in the lives of all.

Marriage & Mayhem for the Tobacco Girls is the fifth book but all the books can easily be read as stand-alone novels. This story sees us coming to the end of WWII. Set in the year 1944, we are edging towards the possibility that the rigours of war might soon come to an end but that does not mean the tension and fears of the tobacco girls can be laid to rest quite yet.

From heartbreaking decisions to loss and triumph, trials for the young and old, Marriage & Mayhem for the Tobacco Girls is a wonderful saga set in a time when everyone had a part to play in keeping Engand - the world - turning.

I highly recommend this book and all the books in the series - one of my favourites!
