Sunshine and Second Chances by Kim Nash – review.

Description

It’s never too late to be offered a second chance at life.

Debs is newly single, Fiona is caring for her mum, Samantha is grieving, and Liv has the perfect life – or so she’d like her friends to think…

This year, these four life-long friends are turning fifty, and Liv is determined they will honour their promise to each other – made on a beach at sunrise twenty-nine years before – to celebrate this milestone together.

And what better place than a gorgeous villa where they will be spoiled and enjoy the stunning beaches, picturesque fishing towns and glorious climate of the Algarve?

But time away from home doesn’t always make the heart grow fonder. Sometimes it makes the thought of returning to your life too hard to bear. Especially with more than one gorgeous Portuguese man making hearts unexpectedly flutter…

It begins as a reunion in the sunshine, but little do the four friends know what life-changing decisions they’ll all be making before their flight home.

A heart-warming, feel-good summer read about friendship, love and second chances.

My thoughts

This book had such a good feel about it. I happily imagined that it was me in Vilamoura in that fantastic house overlooking the sea. I could almost taste the sea air and the gorgeous food. I love this particular region of Portugal too after spending many a holiday there and travelling between Vilamoura and Albufeira, and beyond. The Algarve is beautiful and this book transported me straight back there.

I loved the relationship between the four friends, especially that between Liv and Debs. I so wanted happiness for them all. This book’s central theme was changing a bad or stagnant life situation, one in which so many people can relate to. Did our ladies succeed in doing that? You’ll have to read the book. I’m not telling. It was heartwarming, witty and authentic.

The characters felt like they could have been my friends and I love the references to the menopause. This is something I don’t get to read about a lot but it is something women have to go through. Thank you for keeping it real.

This was certainly a fast and easy read. It’s written in a way that felt like I was listening to friends. If you’re looking for a something to take you on a journey to beautiful Portugal with characters that instantly make you feel as if you’ve arrived home, this is your read!
