xmy-4-women-and-elvis.jpg.pagespeed.ic.hUYpryKw2xTrevor Bartlett’s debut novel is an easy-reading, feel-good kind of book.  Bill is very nearly fifty and juggles his time between the four women in his life – mother, wife, daughter and business associate…and also his cat, Elvis.  Everyday life with his teenage daughter is interspersed with a toilet-roll factory mystery, a surprise engagement, and a very unexpected family development.

  Bartlett’s writing is accessible and very readable – the exchanges between Bill and his four women is engaging and clearly based on experience.  Much of the book’s humour, though, is provided by the character of Bill’s mother – some of her retorts had me laughing out loud.

  Recommended for lovers of easy, well-written, and entertaining fiction – this is a great first novel.
