My Thoughts

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Agony Auntics had me literally rolling with laughter–it’s so funny! There are several laugh-out-very-loud moments that make this book worth visiting again and again.

The story progresses through emails exchanged between Ellie from Leeds and Fliss, the agony aunt at Digital Recorder. (Do we even have agony aunts any more?)

Ellie writes to ask for advice on how to approach an office colleague with whom she’s fallen in love at first sight. As Fliss responds to her email, she comes to the realization that her own marriage could be in trouble.

The fun begins when Laura, Ellie’s well-meaning friend, attempts to get Ellie together with the man she wants and Fliss tries to woo her husband away from his phone and emails. But something or the other keeps going wrong until both Ellie and Fliss are ready to give up!

There was a point in the story when I thought it could end either way for these two women. I found myself hoping that they get their happily-ever-afters, but I had not anticipated that little twist in Fliss’s story!

I found I could relate to Ellie a lot i.e. head in the clouds, has spent her teens reading regency romance novels, and prefers romantic, passionate love over stability and reliability.

The novel is downright hilarious, heartwarming, and paced very well–never a dull moment. I laughed, cried, and sighed along with the characters in the story. Loved it!

Thank you to the author and Rachel for my review copy!


As an agony aunt, Fliss Carmichael should have all the answers but when her own marriage begins unravelling at the seams, she hasn’t a clue where to start. After a simple mistake causes an unintended role swap, she becomes the one seeking advice from an unlikely source!

About Julie Butterfield

Julie Butterfield photo

Julie Butterfield belongs to the rather large group of ‘always wanted to write’ authors who finally found the time to sit down and put pen to paper – or rather fingers to keyboard.

She wrote her first book purely for pleasure and was very surprised to discover that so many people enjoyed the story and wanted more, so she decided to carry on writing.

It has to be pointed out that her first novel, ‘Did I Mention I Won The Lottery’ is a complete work of fiction and she did not, in fact, receive millions in her bank account and forget to mention it to her husband – even though he still asks her every day if she has anything to tell him.
