Editorial Reviews

“No one captures the feverish intensity of modern life, with its attendant disappointments, crises, and occasional triumphs, better than Kate Hilton. Not only is Just Like Family one of the funniest books I have read in a long while, its unflinching yet affectionate portrait of beleaguered heroine Avery Graham also makes it one of the most moving.”

— Jennifer Robson, bestselling author of <em>The Gown</em> and <em>Goodnight From London</em>

“A witty, thoughtful and layered tale of families, friends, and lovers, and the emotional landscape they all share. Kate Hilton leads us through a masterclass on the dynamics of the relationships we choose, and those we’re born into. It’s messy and wise, heartbreaking and heartwarming, and above all, utterly captivating.”

— Terry Fallis, two-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour

“As with all intelligent comedy, Kate Hilton’s Better Luck Next Time has a broken heart and a rising sense of panic just below the surface of what’s funny. Hilarious and poignant, you’ll want to be best friends with the entire Hennessy family. “

— Roz Nay, author of <em>Our Little Secret</em>

Kate Hilton’s writing reminds me of Nora Ephron‘s work: it’s laugh-out-loud funny, with startling observations about life, love, family and reinvention at any age. Witty, poignant, and deeply observant, I loved every moment I spent with Hilton's latest novel!

— <p >Marissa Stapley, bestselling author of <em>The Last Resort</em>

“Kate Hilton achieves the difficult feat of making us empathize with a flawed heroine whose willful reluctance to draw boundaries around a demanding job puts her most important relationships at risk. Keenly-observed, insightful, and punctuated with brilliant, revealing moments of dark humour, this novel is impossible to put down.”

— Janie Chang, bestselling author of <em>Dragon Springs Road</em>

"Better Luck Next Time is a hilarious, captivating novel for fans of Where’d You Go, Bernadette and The Nest. If you’ve ever been part of a family, or wished perhaps you weren’t, you’ll adore this tender, wise novel about the ways that love imprisons and liberates?."

— Elizabeth Renzetti, author of <em>Based on A True Story</em> and <em>Shrewed</em>

"I loved returning to the Goldstein-Hennesseys after a long day. The wry, funny, and relatable family drama is a delicious comfort not unlike binging on your favourite show. It is exactly what we need right now. Pour yourself a glass of wine, run the bath, and enjoy this terrific book!"

— Laurie Petrou, author of <em>Sister of Mine</em> and <em>Love, Heather</em>

With Better Luck Next Time, Kate Hilton has crafted a novel that will make you belly laugh, tug at your heartstrings, and fall in love with the Hennessey-Goldstein families. Full of charm and depth, I loved this quirky family saga! 

— <p >Karma Brown, bestselling author of <em>The Life Lucy Knew</em>

Compulsively readable and very, very funny, Kate Hilton’s Better Luck Next Time is that rare novel that manages to capture the extraordinary in everyday life. I cheered on the Goldstein-Hennessy clan, even as I laughed and cried at their mishaps. A heartfelt, delicious read, one not to be missed!

— <p >Uzma Jalaluddin, author of <em><spantyle="font-family:"Calibri",sans-serif>Ayesha at Last</em>

Kate Hilton’s latest, Better Luck Next Time, is a hilarious, astute, and wonderfully heartwarming tale of a family juggling the complexities of divorce, independence, love, and loss. It’s relatable, relevant, and emotionally resonant — altogether a gem of a book. I loved it!

— <p >Jennifer Robson, internationally bestselling author of <em>The Gown</em>

  "Hilton's voice shines in this highly relatable exploration of women's resilience in the face of betrayal and family strife." 

— <p >K.A.Tucker, internationally bestselling author of <em>The Simple Wild</em>   

“Kate Hilton is really smart, funny and honest about the complex and shifting power dynamics in both domestic and work relationships.”

— Kate Eberlen, author of <em>Miss You</em>
