Jane Once More is the sequel to Jane of Manchester, which I reviewed HERE!. I was happy when Author R G Dow approached me asking me to read and review this sequel. Jane of Manchester was a really easy reading book for me, so I was expecting the same kind of ease of read from Jane Once More.

Jane is back and so are her friends and family but time stands still for no-one, as they say, and so has she moved on at all with her life?
Carrying on from the first book, Jane of Manchester, there is plenty of fun left to be had as Jane and her friends continue to have a laugh in the city, but change may be just around the corner…
More giggles, good times and drama from Jane and the crew!
Jane Once More was as I expected after the first book, it was easy reading. And as with the last book, I listened to it on audiobook while I was doing more monotonous things, like ironing and preparing lunches!! I didn’t need to concentrate much on the story as it followed Jane’s life, her work, friends and family, and also lots of her take aways!
Jane Once More follows the life of a ‘normal’ British girl, with the exception of the lack of social media, which was actually really refreshing as she saw and spoke to her friends and family, She texted a lot, but it was to meet them.
The book is almost written as diary style, (without the days and dates). Jane’s life is not particularly exciting, but she has a good group of friends, colleagues and family. Between hearing about them all and following Jane on her day to day goings on, the reader feels like they know Jane and almost particpate in her life with her.
As a real foodie, I liked all the eating in and out discussions. There was also the development of a relationship in this novel, of which there were none in the last book.
*(It is not essential to read the first book before this, but it will give more of a background if you do).
Jane Once More is a fun easy read. I am expecting another book to follow this one, as it was left with the scope to continue.
