Yes, Please!

Listening to The Old Ducks’ Club, by Maddie Please, I felt as though I had gone on a carefree vacation to a Greek Isle, had an unexpectedly wonderful time with daring new friends, savored new flavors, had a chance to take stock of my life, and decide on some new directions to explore. I can’t wait for the next adventure!

Funny, heart warming, exciting!

This is the second book of Maddie’s that I have absolutely thoroughly loved. She has such a way of transporting you right into the middle of the story and it really is such a well written book. In parts, I actually thought I was in the market in Rhodes or walking next door to knock on Theo’s door.

Next book pre ordered, I CANNOT WAIT!

Absolutely lovely!

I so enjoyed this book!! Every night as I snuggled under my duvet and turned the lights out, I was whisked a way to the beautiful island of Rhodes and wallowed in the descriptions of the little towns, coast, flavours of the local food and delicious local wines. I looked forward to getting back with the characters (particularly the hilarious old ducks!) and discovering how Sofia's life was to develop. I laughed out loud at points and loved the charm and warmth of their friendship and blossoming romances.
It had a predictably wonderful and satisfying ending and I will listen to it again very soon.
Please write some more Maddie!
