ABOUT THE BOOK
Only child out of the house – so far out that she’s gone all the way to Australia! A husband, who has requested a break. Life isn’t quite going as planned for Katy.
She’s suddenly at a loss, but she still has her friends Sam, Vicky and Ivy. The girls have been there for her through thick and they’re not about to stop now. However, they think Katy might need more than boot camp . . . so they kidnap her and head off to France on a last minute retreat.
Can a reset give her a new lease on life or help her win back her husband? Or could there be a new love in her life?
She went for a holiday, but it could become the start of a second chance . . .
This is a beautiful book about friendship and the journey about finding oneself. It is easy to relate to Katy, especially if you’ve been in a marriage for a while and/or are a mother. It’s easy to lose oneself and not remember who you were. Her friends are absolutely amazing. They whisk her away to France to help bring up her spirits. I love books about women supporting other women. But what makes this book really great, is that their friendship isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. They may have a tiff, or disagree, but they always come back together as friends. That is reminiscent of real life. In fact, the whole book felt reminiscent of real life. While these friendships were beautiful, it was the moment that Katy’s daughter felt protective of her mother that really got to me, it made me tear up! I highly recommend this book to everyone!
