Summary

Lucy spends her days making flamboyant clothes, which express all the passion and flair that she cannot, and at night sits alone, fretting over her struggling business. Then a beguiling fortune-teller informs her that her future is far from rosy - in fact, she doesn't have one! Naturally she doesn't believe him, but when his other prophecies come scarily true, she starts to wonder if he could be right. His prediction pushes Lucy to finally throw caution to the wind.

So begins a riotous race-against-the-clock as Lucy tries to squeeze a lifetime of fulfilment into a handful of days. She embarks on a glamorous makeover, goes on a wild night out with her best friend, and finally risks the thing she's guarded most - her heart.

Funny, it had me laughing out loud 😆

I have now read all Annie Sanders books. I love them. Suzy Aitchison narrates it beautifully.
I wish it was 11 hours long instead of 8. This book was so funny & at times when it could have been sad it made me laugh so much. So well written as usual, I would recommend it to anyone with a good sense of humour.
I loved the little twist near the end when it came to Meekah......

Great light hearted entertaining story

This was a lovely, humorous story. It was full of interesting characters, well read and not far fetched as are some funny stories. It wasn't over the top, and had some well-written feel good moments between both Lucy and her son and Lucy and her father. A little formulaic (teenage pregnancy, friend's hottie brother, etc.) but very enjoyable all the same.

So boring.....

I kept waiting for this book to get better but it never did. It was dull and the characters were very predictable and uninteresting.

Hilarious!

Had me laughing all the way through. Although the plot was predictable. It was a delightful listen. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting an escape rom/com
