Publisher's Summary

Sun, sangria and new starts, from the author of the best-selling Five French Hens.

Molly’s 70th birthday comes as something of a shock. The woman in the mirror certainly looks every day of those 70 years, but inside Molly feels she still has so much more living left to do. Widowed and living alone with her cat Crumper, Molly fears she is slipping into a cliché of old age.

When Molly’s sister Nell appears on her doorstep, distraught that her husband of more than 40 years, Phil, has left her for a younger lover, the women decide to seize the day. By the morning, flights are booked, bags are packed and off they go for an adventure in Spain.

The sun, the sea, the new friends and the freedom are just the tonic for broken hearts and flagging souls. But even Spain isn’t enough to revive Molly’s spirit. A solo journey to Mexico is booked as Molly continues to chase the sun and to chase happiness. Will she find what she’s looking for in Mexico, or will she discover that true contentment can’t be found on a map, but it might just be found in a new flame. 

Judy Leigh is back, with her trademark spirit of joie de vivre, fun, warmth and timeless lessons in how to live.

Fun and recognizable characters

For widows like me who are getting older it is rare to find a heroine that is relatable and can make you laugh out loud. Learning to live as a single for the first time at age 60 comes with a lot of life decisions and is often one step forward and one step back and I'm glad that's included in this book. It is inspiring to think that adventure still awaits.

Another great read

Enjoy all of Judy's books. So relatable for those of us that are over 60. The narration was excellent.

I was there with in the book

Ok I know that is a strange review title but as I listened to this mostly in bed I could imagine myself there as Molly the narration was excellent. The writing so brilliantly detailed and what a delightful novel with twists and turns in every chapter. It was a book that I couldn’t immediately predict who would end up madly in love with whom. A delightful Novel that left me wanting more. Thank you Boldwood Books for introducing me to new authors.
