Summary

A heartwarming and hilarious novel from the Sunday Times best-selling author

Ven, Roz, Olive and Frankie have been friends since school. They day-dreamed of glorious futures, full of riches, romance and fabulous jobs. The world would be their oyster.

Twenty-five years later, Olive cleans other people's houses to support her lazy, out-of-work husband and his ailing mother. Roz cannot show her kind, caring husband Manus any love because her philandering ex has left her trust in shreds. And she and Frankie have fallen out big time.

But Ven is determined to reunite her friends and realise the dream they had of taking a cruise before they hit forty. Before they know it, the four of them are far from home, on the high seas. Can blue skies, hot sun and 16 days of luxury and indulgence change their outlook on life?

Total escapism

This is a great story which is read fabulously. The reader brings the authors words alive.
The storyline draws you in and you cannot get enough of it. I stopped what i was doing and before I knew it 5 hours had past!
Loved every chapter

A Great Read

This is my second time reading this story and I loved it as much as the first time I read it. I think Milly Johnson is an outstanding Author who brings to life the humour in people's everyday life, along with the honesty and generosity of the few.
Colleen Prendergast brilliantly breathes life into Molly's characters - a fantastic partnership.
A great read - well recommended!

Even better the second time around

Downloaded this book by mistake as I already had it so instead of wasting it I listened to it again and loved it just as much!

Another cracker from Milly

4 girls swear to be best friends forever but time gets in the way and some relationships are broken and life hasn't turned out how they expected. Ven has a plan to turn life around for them all and a cruise is the perfect way to start; will friendships be repaired and will they each find happiness - you'll need to listen to find out. excellent narration, great characters and a brilliant storyline. Could not stop listening.

Probably my favourite

Being a soppy romantic I loved this book - you find yourself rooting for the characters. It’s funny and laugh out loud in places and it keeps you guessing - lovely listen
