    CATCHY TITLEWith a title like that it was bound to catch my eye. I oscillated between feeling an affinity with the heroine and then feeling quite frustrated with her and the decisions she made. I’m not sure how she fitted so easily into such a very different group of people, but I had to admire her versatility. A light and easy read with an ending that could have gone either way.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion, and it was a hoot a minute. Lyn cuts up all of Neil’s clothing with her pinking shears before she leaves, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you need a good laugh, I definitely recommend No Sex Please, I'm Menopausal!

    A decent story for both sexes to read, written with confident prose.

    I agree with many of the reviews on Goodreads.This is a funny read for women going through this stage of life.Menopause is not funny. Humor has to be found whenever possible. Otherwise, we would rip people's heads off and shit down their neck.The book was a short read, but charming in it's delivery.

    This is the first book I've read by this author but it won't be the last. The characters are easy to relate to and I loved the plot. The book is well written with plenty of laugh out loud moments. It follows Lyn, who has no choice but to come to terms with what's happened and make a fresh start. I thought I knew how it would end but I was wrong. Stevie kept me guessing right until the end. Highly recommended.

    Lyn's going through menopause and her husband Neil, is going through manopause. They get divorced, Lyn moves to the coast and starts a new life, but Neil is still in the picture. Loved this book from start to finish.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story about Lyn, whose life is turned around after experiencing residual effects of menopause, while her husband Neil seems to be going through a mid-life crisis. Lyn discovers Neil's philandering ways by finding out about his adulterous affair he's having to satisfy his sex drive. This escapade leads to the end of their marriage.Lyn's devastation has her moving away and starting a new life with new adventures, friends and relationships. Meanwhile, 'back at the ranch', Neil learns his newfound freedom and relationship with a younger woman isn't all it's cracked up to be and finds himself pining for his ex wife.The story mirrors real life in many ways - pitfalls in relationships, side effects of menopause, and marriage mishaps. I found myself laughing with Lyn and drawn into her drama and decisions. And although I'm in total disagreement with some of the choices she made at the end of this book, it was her story, not mine, and that didn't change the fact that the story was engaging and well written.

    This book was lovely and beautifully written.Me, I never did forgive Neil.I loved all of her friends ( what a crazy group ) and her beach cottage.I'm glad she found happiness in the end.

    If not for the way things eventually turned out I would have given this. Book a 5. How refreshing to read about older couples.

    This book has some real highs and lows. The strongest part is the main character, Lyn, and her growth arc through the first 3/4 or so of the story. The humor is really well done.The bummers:It's repeated over and over how the heroine went through IVFs, which failed. The problem is she's 55 years old...they never decided to adopt, so she really should have made peace with it by her mid 50s. This story would have been more realistic if she was in her mid 40s and still grappling with it.The menopause thing really bummed me out. She apparently is in the extreme category of menopausal symptoms. She has ruled out having sex altogether because it's too dry and too painful. They make all sorts of products to deal with this situation. Wouldn't you try everything before deciding to forgo sex altogether - in any form? Any why would you expect your husband to be ok with that?The husband's affair. Lyn's unwillingness to have sex (of any kind) was a really poor set up to her husband cheating, and in the end was used to excuse it (terrible!). As I mentioned earlier, Lyn had a tremendous character arc of growth. Her husband eventually tries to win her back, which felt like Lyn backsliding into her past self. The reunion felt forced, and the affair was rugswept. The biggest problem I had was how the husband's child was offered as a gift to Lyn of motherhood, when in reality, most women would have trouble raising another woman's child that was conceived during an affair with your husband of 35 years. When you add in the pain of infertility on to the betrayal of infidelity, I fail to see how this child would have helped to rebuild this family rather been a permanent reminder of both the infertility and infidelity. It was a sad ending in my mind. I would much rather have seen Lyn surrounded by her new friends and her companion, Peter, and become a foster mom than take her crappy husband back.

    This was so good, I finished it in one sitting, something I rarely do. But....What the f--?! That was a giant f-you to the reader at the end! After all this incredible, wonderful, joyous self-discovery, and engaging with and discovering her true self, finding spirited, lovable friends and overcoming fears and insecurities, after growing strong and independent, confident and secure, we get an ending that is completely out of character for our beloved heroine when she returns to a character who has an 0% believable growth and is completely unsuited to the heroine other than by his mere familiarity...! UGH. Marrying Peter wouldn't have been right either, but why did she NEED to be married to have her joy and life validated in the first place? I am so disgusted and disappointed and betrayed. It was an amazing story, so fresh and likeable, so relatable with beautifully smooth language and scene delivery, and then, suddenly, it was trash. Unbelievable. I can't see Lyn being happy day-to-day with her self-centred, dissimilar ex, let alone viewing a child from his affair as a welcome bonus(!!!). No, it was as if the author reversed all her wonderful spiritual awakening to joy and authentic self, sent her back to repressed, social expectations meeting, suburbian, unthinking, conforming Lyn. Because it's easier, because it's familiar. Because it's socially acceptable. Secure. UGH! I just wanna scream!(Okay, Turner, because I loved your creation of older, relatable, real characters, and your ability to bring scenes to life and pace a story so engagingly, I will try another one of your tales. Here's to no more INFURIATING haha-fuck-character-growth endings....)

    I can't believe I read this! (Spoilers below)Why did I read this??? Oh yes it was on this Marriage on the rocks list in Goodreads and it didn't have any alerts like the SOB aka husband is a cheating douchebag loser and he was just a jerk. The reviews said that this was a laugh a minute book but I didn't laugh once. I didn't see the humor at all. And the end in was just horrid. His young girlfriend had gone back to her husband and now he sees the errors of his ways and wants the h back even though she still was in menopause and unable to have sex. And he wants her, his baby from the affair, which I think is just gross gross gross, and him to be a family. And she does it. Problem I have is first off I hate cheaters, and he will stray again I am positive) and she says oh well you had manopause and I had menopause so we're even. Honestly I don't think he would have gone back to her if the 'ho' he was having the affair with hadn't gone back to her husband. I hated the entire book but I finished it because I am a masochist and I just had to find that lol stuff that people talked about. I never found it. Please be warned. I wish I had been.

    Very funny book about a lady going through the menopause and a man going through a mid-life crisis who just happen to be married to each other The only thing that let it down was the ending (which I won't put so not to spoil it)
