The hilarious and poignant new novel from the best-selling author of The Kicking the Bucket List.
When a box set of Broadchurch is more appealing than having sex with your husband, then perhaps it's time to hide the remote....
Cait and Matt have been married for 30 years. They are rock solid. An inspiration to others. Stuck together like glue - aren't they? But Cait can't shake off the feeling that something is missing. The whole world should be their oyster now that Matt has retired, giving them the time to do those things that really matter - and, more importantly, together. So why is she left wondering if this is all there is?
Has Matt always been this annoying and infuriating? And where have those ants in her pants suddenly come from? It's not helped by the reappearance in her life of Tom Lewis, the love of her life who broke her heart at university and who, despite the fact she hasn't she hasn't seen him for decades, is still exerting his magnetic pull.
Her friends are Lorna, who recently lost her husband, and Debs, whose husband recently left her. The three women must all question what they want out of the rest of their lives - and how they are going to get it....

Fabulous book, especially for those of us of a certain age!
As an older bookworm, it’s always refreshing to find a really well written, gripping tale about older adults, rather than the usual 30 somethings. The wonderfully drawn characters in this book are mostly in their 60s, with one in her 50s. Just like real life, these mature people still have their hopes, loves, envy and libidos. There is not a wasted word here and I was always reluctant to put it down. I was gripped thought out by the story. The narration is also excellent. Highly recommended.

An ok listen
This is nowhere near as good as her last book The Kicking the Bucket List. It has some laugh moments but basically the main character, Cait, is just not likeable. The whole story is a bit of a storm in a teacup.
