Three people. Twenty-four hours. A lifetime of secrets to unravel…
Brand new from #1 bestseller Shari Low. An emotional roller-coaster, that keeps you guessing…
Heartwarming, Touching – & Funny!
I knew before I began that this was a book I would enjoy; Shari Low has a dry wit which makes me laugh every time!
Agnetha McMaster has spent her life caring for others; now, on the day she turns forty-five it is finally her time and she intends to make the most of every single moment. Her ex-husband Mitchell, married to the woman he left Aggs for, suspects that his wife is cheating on him, whilst elsewhere in the city a young woman called Hope McTeer has finally managed to track down one of her adoptive parents and is about to meet her father. Over the course of a day, 24 hours, we follow all three and get so much more than we bargained for . . .
I love how this is written; beginning with the present day and slipping back to the past now and then to explain when necessary. Shari Low is the queen of creating realistic characters who can quick-fire ripostes with the well-known Glaswegian humour and I burst out laughing more than once whilst reading her latest novel – but this is also a heartwarming, touching read. The story plays out beautifully; the writing flows smoothly and easily and the outcome is everything I would want it to be. Aggs is the best friend, lover, mother or daughter anyone could have, and this shines through every page. A highly recommended first-class read which earns all five glittering stars!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy of the novel and to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
