Celebrity Interior designer Tony Manning is approaching 40. He's suffering from mood swings and erectile dysfunction coupled with an expanding waistline and fading hairline. The likelihood is, he's experiencing a mid- life crisis. If that's not enough to be dealing with, his wife's convinced that he's having an affair. Evidently, his once perfect world becomes hazy and his emotions are tested beyond measure. His friends, Mark Richards and Martin Truman are also struggling with their own issues. Freelance writer, Mark has a one night stand that he'll never forget, only he's forced to look at the consequences of his actions; when his 'lived out fantasy' with Beverley King turns into his 'worst nightmare.' His player days are well and truly over but now he's faced with his most ultimate challenge when his friendship with Kelly blossoms into something more than he expected. Martin, bachelor extraordinaire, is in love for the first time in his life and although he's willing to leave his wayward ways for sassy, confident and fun loving Joan Anderson, there's only one snag; Joan's a Christian and unless he's true to himself, the thought of being with the one he loves hangs in the balance. In this quirky, comical, yet equally sensitive, dialogue driven novel, the reader is able to relate to the characters and to their experiences both high and low. We're left feeling that 'Those Mid-Life Blues' is simply an experience of awakening as the trio are challenged by decisions that will ultimately change their lives.
