No Ex Before Marriage by Portia MacIntosh

The Feel-Good Factor

No Ex Before Marriage by Portia MacIntosh is a really fun contemporary novel that will leave you smiling.

The novel is about love and life, friendships and family, relationships and road trips as we follow a group of thirty somethings who have been friends since school. There have been marriages and a divorce as Portia MacIntosh delves into the difficulties divorcees may experience as they are excluded from certain couples’ activities. Being single also gives others the opportunity to match-make.

A new friendship springs up that adds a spark of life to ignite the life of another.

You never forget your first love even if the road was bumpy at times.

Portia MacIntosh has drawn a delightful set of characters. We see all the action through the eyes of the main character as the book is written in the first person.

The whole book is deliciously fun and will warm your heart and make you smile. I loved it.

I received a free copy from Rachel’s Random Resources and Boldwood via Net Galley. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.


No Ex Before Marriage

It’s not over until someone says ‘I do’…

While her friends join the “Wife Club” one by one, Poppy feels like that part of her life is done and dusted. Already married and divorced she’s not desperate to go through all that again.

But what if her divorce never actually went through…?

After a shock revelation Poppy not only discovers she is still married, but that Zac is about to have his second wedding!

Coming face to face with her (almost) ex-husband after six years apart is never going to be easy. And when Zac panics and tells his new wife-to-be that Poppy is family, things can’t get much worse as she is welcomed with open arms as part of the wedding party!

As the memories flood back, can Poppy really leave the past where it is? And can she watch the first love of her life walk down the aisle to say ‘I do’ once again?
