#BlogTour: When I Grow Up by Patricia Asedegbega @Patricias_Place #WhenIGrowUp #RandomThingsTours

"You need a plan B," said Alicia’s mother when at five years old she told her what she wanted to be when she grew up. Thirty odd years later, Alicia is on plan D: sharing a flat, no tangible savings, and working for hateful Julia, whose sole purpose in life is to make her existence utterly miserable. Good thing she has Oscar and the girls to make the long hours at work bearable. But when a series of events tears the close-knit group apart, putting friendships and motives under suspicion, will Alicia be able to restore balance and set things right? More importantly, will she ever be able to upgrade her life to at least plan C?

My Thoughts:

Thrilled to be able to talk to you today about When I Grow Up. The thing I like about taking part in blog tours is coming across authors that I wouldn't necessarily encountered before. 

When I Grow Up is set in Spain which I really enjoyed. Alicia life seems to lack excitement, she works in an office and aims of upgrading her life. When something happens at work Alicia comes into her own.

When I Grow Up is full of elements of mystery and intrigue. I thoroughly enjoyed this character driven novel and feel that the author was able to give them great depth and really made them come alive for the reader. 

A tale of friendship and mystery, the pacing was accurate and there was an original feel to it that made it stand out from the crowd. Anybody that has ever worked in an office will appreciate the office politics and drama that ensue.

Contemporary and entertaining.
