Ninjas!!!

Ninjas can be everywhere! I just finished reading this boo, Ninja School Mum by Lizzie Chantree. 

From the author:

“Obsessive-compulsive school mum, Skye, is a lonely elite spy, who is running from her past whilst trying to protect the future of her child. She tries hard to fit in with the other parents at her son’s new school, but the only person who accepts her unconventional way of life is new mother, Thea.

Thea is feeling harassed by her sister and bored with her life, but she suspects that there is something strange about the new school mum, Skye. Thea has secrets of her own and, although the two become unlikely friends, she hesitates to tell Skye about the father of her own child.

Zack’s new business is growing faster than he could have dreamed but, suddenly, he finds himself the owner of a crumbling estate on the edge of a pretty village, and a single parent to a very demanding child. Could he make a go of things and give his daughter the life she deserved?

When three lives collide, it appears that only one of them is who they seem to be, and you never know who the person next to you in the school playground really is.”

My review:

“Ninja School Mum,” was a nice book to read and it mixes love into the fabric of a story that I’ve never read before. I liked the British way of using slang and I googled some slang just to sure of what the words meant to convey. The characters are strong and LUCAN made me ponder the USA’s CIA. It is understandable that the two main female leads want to help their child and niece in learning how to help their kids from being bullied by a classmate. I leave it to the reader to find this part out as well as how the rest is woven into place. Thank you Lizzie for a book with plot twists and a well woven mesh of mystery.
