#AmReading Marshmallows For Breakfast by Dorothy Koomson

 
 
One of my reading goals for 2013 was to read some of my non-review books that have been neglected and left gathering dust.
 
The wonderful thing about discovering a new author already several books into their writing career is being able to catch up. After discovering Dorothy Koomson - who is now one of my favourite authors - I bought her backlist of books and am slowly working my way through them. Next up is Marshmallows For Breakfast:
 
When Kendra Tamale returns to England from Australia she rents a room from Kyle, a divorced father of two, and begins a new job. She's looking forward to a fresh start and simple life. Kyle's five-year-old twins, Summer and Jaxon, have other ideas and quickly adopt Kendra as their new mother - mainly because she lets them eat marshmallows for breakfast. Kendra eventually becomes a part of their lives, even though she's hiding a painful secret that makes her keep everyone - especially children - at arm's length. Then Kendra bumps into the man who shares her awful secret, and things fall apart: she can't sleep, she can't eat, she's suspended from work, and the kids are taken away by their mother. The only way to fix things is to confess to the terrible mistake she made all those years ago. But that's something she swore never to do . . .
