"Today, I am in the changing room of my life and tomorrow, win or lose, I'll move forward a stronger and wiser woman." Sandy Lovett's confused mother and chaotic life are having an effect on her waistline. She knows she needs to change her life but doesn't know how until she buys a risqué dress which sets in motion a sequence of life-changing events. After years as a mother, carer and full-time employee, Sandy quits her job and places her mother in a care home, and life seems on the up. But disaster is never far away for the hapless Sandy as her mother's obsessions continue to wreak havoc and her husband's business begins to fail. Short of cash and needing a flexible job, Sandy joins a sex-chat service. At The Beaver Club Sandy discovers a talent for selling telephone sex - a skill she later regrets when she meets unscrupulous local politician and prospective MP, Trewin Thackeray. The Changing Room is a comedy-drama for all those whose glass is half-full. Preferably with gin and a big fat cherry!

The Changing Room was a interesting read. I enjoyed it overall but did have a bit of an issue of the weight loss theme. I'm all for bettering yourself but the book sorta of implied life is only great when skinny. Other than that this book was a great journey of self discovery. Sandy is trying to help her husbands' failing business by becoming a sex phone operator. The story line that follows is full of emotional ups & downs & just plain entertaining. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
