Summary

Recommended by Amanda Holden!           

The perfect, listen for fans of Milly Johnson, Cathy Bramley and Jill Mansell! 

Beverley Wilson has always loved the Beatles, but kissing a poster goodnight isn’t really an option when you’re a 50-something mum of three. So when she decides it’s time to get back into the dating game, she turns to a dating agency for help.

But the long and winding road to real love is littered with dating disasters - the pantyhose pervert being the real low point, and in Bev’s opinion, it’s all too much. But meeting fellow Beatles fan Scott Smith changes everything....

This hilarious romantic comedy explores life, love and lonely hearts in the suburbs of Liverpool. Is Bev’s attempt to shake things up foolish...or the bravest thing she’s done?

Critic reviews

"Funny, moving, romantic and down to earth - this is a book that says the Beatles were right and sometimes all you need is love." (David Quantick, screenwriter of the movie Book of Love, starring Sam Claflin)

Shake it Up Beverley

Really good story, thoroughly enjoyed the escapism. In parts felt it did go on a little too long, though would still recommend and soooo glad I bought this book.
Sit back, relax and enjoy

Brilliant

Perfect light hearted read, with a few unexpected twists and turns. I thoroughly enjoyed the Kindle version read by Emma Gregory, it kept me company whilst I worked my way through some dull jobs. Look forward to Suzan's future writing.
