A hilarious heart-warming read about friendship, taking chances and finding love, second time round.
When Charlie’s husband leaves after ten years of marriage, her spirits hit an all-time low. She just isn’t sure how to pick herself up again. So, best friend Mercedes makes it her mission to put a spring back in Charlie’s step with the perfect bucket list.
As Charlie bungee jumps and belly dances her way through an array of adventures, her love life also begins to look up and she’s soon enjoying a few dates as a newly single woman. She begins to realise that finding romance, might not be so hard, especially when you’ve got someone like journalist Jake who has an adorable little boy and is very easy on the eye.
But is Jake too good to be true? As Charlie’s challenges on the bucket list get bigger, so do her questions about Jake. Should she continue to hold out for the fairy-tale? Or is it only in rom coms that dreams can come true?
A witty romantic read perfect for fans of Carole Matthews and Debbie Johnson.
My Review – 4.5 stars
Such a good, fun read!
Mostly light-hearted with some seriousness thrown in.
Some great characters. I felt I got to know them all very well.
And even though I have a bird phobia I loved Burt.
I did try some of the belly dancing moves in front of the mirror…..who knew my stomach could move in such a way!!
Some parts made me laugh out loud.
I welled up at one point, but the author cleverly made me laugh before I actually shed a tear.
I really enjoyed the book, nice and easy to read.
If you usually read crime give this author a try, it’s a welcome change.
