The Two Lives Of Maddie Meadows

Maddie Meadows adores her family and loves her work. But she has good reason to keep them separate.

For single mum Maddie, home is a flat on a run-down estate. And family consists of an excitable toddler, a lonely Dad and a younger brother mired in a love triangle.

Meanwhile, professional Madeleine balances a tricky day job, made worse by a jealous colleague. No one at work knows about her other life, and she needs to keep it this way: one of the bosses has made his feelings very clear about single parents and the people on her estate.

Thank goodness for her fun-loving and loyal friends – although Maddie wishes they’d believe her when she insists she has no time for love. Or so she tells herself as she fights to quell her hidden feelings for her gorgeous colleague, Oliver, who comes from the posh part of town.

When her friends line up their ideal man for her – Sean, more beanstalk than Bean – Maddie wishes she’d told them the truth. It’s hard enough juggling two lives. But, with all the added complications, how long will be it be before Maddie’s carefully created world comes crashing down?


We all have that persona that we put on when we leave the house including Maddie who lives in not the best part of town with her toddler son and this book looks at those 2 sides of her life 
Whilst I could understand Maddies behaviour and how she was at work, I did struggle with her at times. She is a loving and determined mum who would do anything for her son, her family and her friends but is also so conscious of where she had come from and it felt like she was trying to hide that part of her life 
Maddie works in the community part of the local council and a lot of the book was focused on her job which was fascinating to see. It made me think of the other side of some of these disputes and issues and how compromise can be so important 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy reading about the sense of love, friendship and community and how important that can be
