Older is a sequel to Younger. Liza has come out about her age. She is now officially fifty. She has been living as a hermit for two years after breaking it off with younger Josh. Liza broke it off with Josh. She felt Josh should have a family life with someone who was willing to give him children.
I love the television series but I never read the book on which it is based. It appears that there was no older man, Charles, in the book. So the author has added a Charles substitute in this book in the debonair British actor, Hugo. Liza’s bestie Kelsey is developing a television based on Liza’s book about her romance with Josh called Younger. The actress playing Liza wants an older man cast as Josh. Enter Hugo. It’s very meta.
I’m not just sure if I like the plot since it conflicts with the TV show. Also, Liza’s daughter is just plain annoying. Older is probably best for the novel fans rather than the show fans. 3 stars from me.
Thanks to Gallery Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
