Summary

One morning, Connie McColl wakes up and decides to swap her ordinary life for an extraordinary adventure....

Connie McColl is finally free to make her own decisions for the first time in decades. And when she meets glamorous Gill and downtrodden Maggie at a rather dull flower arranging class, it seems that she’s not the only one dreaming of adventure. The three very different women all agree it’s about time they had a holiday to remember.

So they make a pact for this summer to be their best yet - and drive off into the sunset together....

As they meander their way along the beautiful beaches of France and onto the glorious delights of Italy in their luxury campervan, the new friends have plenty of fun and frolics in the sunshine. But the vacation isn’t quite what they expected.

Gill will do anything to have one last holiday romance, Connie has a surprise inheritance awaiting her in Italy, and Maggie has a secret that is going to catch up with them all.

In the end, all three women discover that the journey they thought would be their last really is just the beginning.

Great read

Loved the characters narration and story - funny and uplifting. I will miss “the girls” and will definitely be looking for more reads from Dee McDonald and narrations from Jilly Bond
