Harriet is what I would refer to as a Yummy Mummy, she’s got the nice house, a Husband with a top flight job in the City and she spends money like it’s water in a constant attempt to keep up with the Jones’es, she is not my type of person at..all!
When things go sideways for Harriet she is forced to move to Willoughby Close and to change her spending ways, re-evaluating her life, who she has become, and her marriage.
This novel very much felt like a learning journey as Harriet discovers the person she had turned into in her marriage, as she learns to not spend money on frivolous things and rediscovers the value of money, and the value of good relationships she starts to make changes and learn what she really wants in her life.
I didn’t fully connect with Harriet’s story. I didn’t like Harriet much and I found the story was far too centred around her children, which makes sense given the nature of the story, but it’s not a story focus I enjoy particularly. I also wasn’t overly thrilled with the way the book ended. I think it showed a great weakness on Harriet’s part.
Overall, this was an enjoyable read but definitely my least favourite of all of Kate Hewitt’s books so far. I definitely wouldn’t discourage anybody from reading it however and I’m not put off continuing to read Kate’s books in future.
And then I realised that Harriet doesn't like herself much either, or at least she doesn't like what she has become over the years. Once she and her three children move into their small cottage at Willoughby Close, and as they adapt to their new, smaller, shabbier surroundings, to the lack of money and life without Richard, Harriet starts to think back to the days when she and Richard first lived together - the days when they didn't have much money but shared plenty of love and laughter. Her outlook on herself, on her marriage and what is really important shifts and it's as if a new person - or rather the old Harriet - emerges.
Kate Hewitt's writing style is very lively and engaging. The author certainly knows how to bring her characters to life, and once I started reading I really wanted to find out how it would all end. I now would love to find out what happens to Harriet's neighbours at Willoughby Close, and I will be reading the other stories in the series.
Find Me at Willoughby Close is a an engaging journey of self-discovery, and reminds us that money, a beautiful country house and all the latest 'in' accessories aren't important, and in any case not more important than love and family.
Will definitely look for the other books in this series
