About The Book:
When her husband David announces he’s been offered a job in New York, Saoirse is thrilled. The glamour of the big city, the shopping, the culture, not to mention the free Manhattan apartment and business class air fare – what’s not to like? There’s just the small matter of making it work for their daughter, five-year-old Anna, who isn’t so keen to leave her friends and school behind. The Big Apple in the middle of summer isn’t quite the holiday Saoirse envisaged, and with David away with work, New York apartment sizes on the miniscule side, and the pace of life faster than the sleepy London suburbs, solo ex-pat parenting pushes Saoirse to her limits. And as the pressure builds and ‘faking it till she makes it’ isn’t cutting it, there’s only one thing for it – Saoirse and Anna need a new plan, and ‘Winging It’ might be their best option.

My Review:
This book had me laughing out loud many times, Emma Murray has such a wonderfully funny outlook on life and its ups and downs. I have been in Saoirse's shoes as I had to move to the USA in 2008, I was there for only six months though. She really nails it on what it's like to be far from home and not know anyone, but Ms. Murray does it with such a wonderful sense of humour. 

Saoirse was a little bit whiney and kinda weak starting out but she grew as a character and as I continued to read she got some balls along the way. I found myself cheering her on as she ending up having some very redeeming qualities. I liked how she loved her friends fiercely, she was a wonderful mom to Anna, a great support to her husband and she does her best to keep a relationship with her mom, even when it isn't always easy. What a wonderful adventure I took with Saoirse and her friends and family and I am so happy she finally found her place in the world. 

With many thanks to NetGalley, Emma Murray and Boldwood Books for the giving of the ARC.
