Annie’s big birthday is looming. Sixty! She feels half that age, even if the mirror tells her otherwise. Hubby Keith promises her a birthday to remember, and doesn’t let her down, but packing his suitcase to shack up with a forty-something isn’t quite the memory Annie wants to make. Suddenly she’s single and – as an empty nester – very, very alone. The Bucket List she and Keith had promised to work their way through is but a dream, until besties Bella and Caz rally around Annie and whisk her away for a trip that will be remembered for ever. Dubai. But it’s not all skyscrapers, bling, sand dunes and sheiks. As the sun sinks over the horizon of Jumeirah Beach… might there also be love?
A new book by this author? Oh yes, this is a must read for me. She is one of the author who can really make me laugh and that’s one of the things that make her books so great. She writes in a way it feel more like you are watching a movie than reading a book.
This book starts in the UK, but we are swept away to fabulous Dubai! This is one of the destinations I would love to visit too, but I don’t feel like flying 8 or 9 hours. I was sooo happy I could see some of the things I already read about in this story. It totally felt like I was there too. This was one of the cheapest holidays for me ever. LOL.
Often when you are getting a little older, you life has taken on a certain pattern and when suddenly something big changes, you are lost, because the rhythm is broken and you don’t know what to do anymore. You are wondering too if certain things are still for you, because you are nearly 60. Maybe you sometimes need something like this to happen in order to claim back your life and start enjoying it to the fullest again.
This story is about friendship, second changes and putting yourself on the highest pedestal once in a while.
I loved it! 5 stars
