Blurb: Ally Richmond is dreading turning thirty and bidding farewell to her youth. And when her husband says he wants to start a family, she begins to panic.

Is this all that life has to offer from now on? Popping out babies and growing old gracefully? She wants a life crammed with glamour and spontaneous adventure, not one full of dirty nappies and night feeds. 

When Ally makes a silly birthday wish for a new, exciting life, her wish is granted. 

But when Ally is presented with the freedom and opportunities she craves, she soon realises this new life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and that there really is no place like home.

*First of all I would like to thank the author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and inviting me to take part in the blog tour.*

Review: If you love movies like Big, 14 Again or Freaky Friday, you'll like this book. Ally has quite a pleasant life: nice husband, great friends, a family who love her... but something is missing. Her colleague talks about endless nights partying, posh clothes or steamy "meetings" with their hot boss so Ally wishes she could have a life like hers, fun and carefree. But what happens when she wakes up and finds out she has been given exactly that life by a inexperienced kind of fairy godmother? 

Ally finds herself in a life she doesn't understand, sure she has the posh clothes, the parties and the hot boss but where is her husband? And why does everyone hate her? I enjoyed reading all about Ally trying to rediscover who she is in this new life and finding out she is a bitch. In the story, there are some really funny moments that made me giggle. Plus I really liked Jason, Ally's boss, who turns out to be such a sweetie. He helps her so much and is such a gentleman. Prove that first impressions are not always true. 

I had the feeling though that Ally's new life went on forever. Weeks and even months passed by and she was just stuck there. Wich was both negative and positive. I mean with a story like this there is the obvious ending that she learns the lesson and everything goes back to normal or the more controversial ending that she masters her new life and stays in it forever. Reading this story I really had no idea which way it would go and this kept the mistery going quite well. I was actually cheering for one of the endings which was not the case, but I'm happy with it because I was left with a big smile on my face.

All in all, a sweet story that will make you giggle quite a lot and will make you realise that sometimes we have to value more what we have and not just take it for granted. You know what they say, be careful with what you wish for.
