Publisher's Summary

One morning, Connie McColl wakes up and decides to swap her ordinary life for an extraordinary adventure.... 

Connie McColl is finally free to make her own decisions for the first time in decades. And when she meets glamorous Gill and downtrodden Maggie at a rather dull flower arranging class, it seems that she’s not the only one dreaming of adventure. The three very different women all agree it’s about time they had a holiday to remember. 

So they make a pact for this summer to be their best yet - and drive off into the sunset together.... 

As they meander their way along the beautiful beaches of France and onto the glorious delights of Italy in their luxury campervan, the new friends have plenty of fun and frolics in the sunshine. But the vacation isn’t quite what they expected. 

Gill will do anything to have one last holiday romance, Connie has a surprise inheritance awaiting her in Italy, and Maggie has a secret that is going to catch up with them all.

In the end, all three women discover that the journey they thought would be their last really is just the beginning.

Light Fun Read!

At first I wasn't sure if this book was going to capture my attention as it was a bit slow to start, but once it did I really enjoyed the ride! The characters were well developed and the storyline was fun and interesting. The story is about 3 older woman recapturing and redirecting their own lives. They go on an adventure that opens their eyes to possiblity. It will make you laugh out loud.

The Getaway Girls

Nice little romp through France and Italy.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book on a rainy weekend, really good escapism. One of those books were you get to know the characters like friends I felt sad when it ended.
Well worth a listen to escape the lockdown in beautiful countries with three fun amazing ladies .... Enjoy

Lovely Adventurous Story

I really like the story but the main character from Run Away Bride disappointing took a bit of a back-step in the story and wasn’t nearly as active or as interesting the first novel. The change of narrator and accent was also difficult as it seemed to alter her character.

Nevertheless, it was a most enjoyable, light-hearted read.

Lovely gentle story

I enjoyed this, it is an easy listening story with interesting characters that when the book ends, you feel you want to hear more about the antics of these 3 women.

SO VERY, VERY, VERY BORING.

Would have given it zero if I could. Boring Story & Really, Really Terrible Narration.
