About the Author

Therese Loreskär started her carrier in 2010 as a Swedish author. She self-published her first novel which was very well received and quickly sold out!
In 2014 she signed up to a publishing house. Her novel called “The Queen of Blogging” was released and the feedback was overwhelming! People referred to the book as a modern “Bridget Jones” and couldn’t get enough of the main character, Kajsa. The next book “The Queen of Blogging 2” was released shortly after to all the reader’s delight.
Therese has since then published 4 bestselling children’s books as well. She often does tours at different schools and talks about her books. The children love her visits and Therese always enjoys talking to her little readers.
“The Queen of Blogging 1 & 2” have also been recorded and launched as audiobooks in addition to paper backs in Sweden. Her biggest dream is to have “The Queen of Blogging series” made into films, and she secretly keeps a list in an old drawer of presumptive actors that would do the characters in her books justice.
Her never-ending energy for writing and entertaining people with her characters is her biggest trait.
Therese lives in the countryside along the west coast of Sweden. She has a rather big and busy household, with (one) husband, two children, one deaf cat, five hamsters and a grandmother.
When she’s not busy making up stories and writing silly things, she enjoys the nature, people, history, redecorating the house without asking anyone for permission, and all other kinds of creativity.
My Review
So this is the second book by Therese Loreskar which follows on from The Queen of Blogging. This can be read as a standalone but you will probably benefit from reading in order.
Written in short, sharp, diary/timed entries by Kajsa, single mum to three kids plus dog who in all honesty has a life filled with calamity!
I really enjoyed her view of the world. While she tries her best it just seems like everyone is conspiring against her or perhaps that’s just her paranoia. She is a fabulous character and provides many a chuckle .. the mother in law (ex!) Gull Britt is the star of the show. Good grief she is the epitome of an old lady who you really couldn’t bear living with but Kajsa has to take it in her stride.
The Queen of New Beginnings is a mix of reality, humour, endearing moments and a few cringe-worthy ones. At times I felt sorry for Kajsa but she soon bounces back and the fun-filled atmosphere reappears. This is ideal as a quick read, you really fly through it due to the writing style and it’s highly entertaining. Brilliant for a holiday book or just to brighten/lighten the mood.
It reminded me of several sit-coms all rolled into one where you want to get to the next episode to meet the characters again, it would make great TV.
Thanks to the author and Sarah at Bombshell books for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
