Review of Pedigree Mum by Fiona Gibson



A straying husband.
A broken heart.
And a crazy rescue dog in a town of posh pooches…

When Kerry Tambini upped sticks with her family to a new home on the coast, she couldn’t have been happier. Then husband Rob made the biggest mistake of his life… Stranded with her children in snooty Shorling, Kerry has plenty on her plate. So how can she say no to the kids’ pleas for a dog when they’re missing their father dreadfully? Will adopting a wayward hound lead Kerry to a new love – or has she bitten off more than she can chew? As she steps back into the dating world Kerry must juggle her family, her neurotic dog and try to fit in with the local pedigree mums, making her a true heroine for our time.

Inspiration: It was inspired by my family acquiring a rescue hound named Jack.


I was really pleased when I won a copy of Fiona’s novel through one of her competitions. Not only did she send me my prize, she also signed it.

When it comes to Fiona’s writing, it’s very hard to be disappointed as her characters and plot are effortless. I would never normally read a book about a dog, but I really enjoyed this one! The family are realistic, entertaining and at times, quite shocking.

I was sincerely shocked by the outcome between Kerry and Rob, but the way in which Fiona transformed Kerry’s life around with the income of a happy dog, it seemed very fitting.
