My book review of 'When the lights go out' by Carys Bray

When the lights go out

When the lights go out
by Carys Bray

Emma is hoping that Chris is going through his mid-life crisis. But instead of a motorbike or a leather jacket, he's buying up medicines from the web and stockpiling food.

Christmas is imminent and the rain continues to fall. The end of the world, so feared by Chris, is looking an increasing possibility but his growing erratic behaviour leaves Emma fraught, and then her mother-in-law comes to stay.

This is funny but touching. I didn't want to step away from the lives of these characters. Wonderful. And a beautiful cover to boot!
