Just One Day – Autumn by Susan Buchanan

I have really enjoyed this series of the Just One Day books by Susan Buchanan, so I was excited to read her latest installment – Autumn. This is the fourth book in the series and although it can be read as a standalone, I would definitely recommend reading all the books and starting from Book One (Winter).

I love Louisa! I can really relate to her being a busy mum and rarely finding time for herself. In this book, she’s pregnant with twins – her fourth and fifth children. She’s also an older mum. (I had my fifth child at 42, I’m sympathising here, ha ha!) It’s written in the first person, so you really get to understand Louisa.

It’s always great to read the next in a series and catch up with familiar characters you come to know and love. There’s Louisa’s husband Ronnie, their three children (Gen, Hugo and Aria) and their gorgeous dogs Patch and Bear. Louisa also has a wonderfully close relationship with her sisters Wendy and Jo.

As usual, Louisa ends up running round and looking after everyone. There are so many things going on with her family and friends, life is never boring – nor for the reader. I love catching up with Sam, Martha, Nicky and everyone from the previous books. It’s great to follow their stories as well as Louisa’s.

Susan Buchanan has a lovely style of writing. It’s accessible, warm, chatty and friendly. It feels like Louisa is talking directly to you, the reader, which takes you right into her life. You feel like she’s a friend and care what happens to her and her loved ones. I always love Susan’s books and plan to read everything she ever writes. Highly recommended.


Just One Day – Autumn

Pregnant Louisa is just getting back on track when life throws her another curveball. Now, it’s not a case of how she’ll get through her to-do lists but how she’ll manage being a mum again.

No one seems to understand. How will she run her company, be partner in a new venture, look after her three kids and handle a newborn? And why does everyone think this will be easy? Except her.

All Louisa wants is to be a good mum, a good wife and have a bit of time left for herself, but sometimes that’s too big an ask. Can she find the support she needs, or will she forever be pulled in too many directions, always at the mercy of her to-do lists?
