Publisher's Summary

The best days of your life might be still to come....

When 73-year-old Jen announces that she is going to marry Eddie, a man she met just a few months previously on a beach on Boxing Day, her four best friends from aqua aerobics are flabbergasted.

The wedding is booked and, when the groom decides to have a stag trip to Las Vegas, the ladies arrange a hen party to beat all others - a week in the city of love, Paris.

From misadventures at the Louvre and outrageous Parisian cabarets to drinking champagne with a dashing millionaire at the casino, Paris lives up to all their hopes and dreams. But a week can change everything, and the women that come home have very different dreams from the ones who got on the plane just days ago.

Funny, fearless and with a joie de vivre that reminds you to live every day like it’s your last. Judy Leigh has once again written the perfect feel-good novel for all fans of Cathy Hopkins, Dawn French and Fiona Gibson.

Just a delight

As I listened to this book I couldn't keep the smile off my face with the occasional spontaneous giggle. The antics of 5 70yr old women seems like a boring topic but it most certainly was not.

Great narration and believable character driven story.

Another uplifting read from Judy Leigh

A story about real friendship and not settling for second best. I love the way Judy’s mature characters still see that live is for living at any age, an uplifting read!

Amusing, feel good story

Being a fan of the narrator, Annie Aldington, this book made a pleasant change to her usual narratives of gangland London. A tale of five recently acquainted ladies on a journey of group and self discovery to Paris. A pleasant, amusing, feel good story.
