Emma, Colette, Nick and Aleysha meet on a course for getting over relationship breakups. Colette is recovering from cancer and her husbands shocking reaction to her illness. Nick has two young children to care for as well as a full time job since his wife dumped him and their children to 'find herself' in Australia. Aleysha's husband left her after only a few months of marriage leaving her devastated and bewildered and Emma is getting to grips with leaving her own marriage and wondering if she has done the right thing. Their stories are all very different but they quickly form a friendship group and decide they need some challenge in their lives. So the Dare Club is born. Facing challenges which range from gatecrashing parties and running away from policemen to stand up comedy and roller coasters, they start to put their lives back together. All enjoying themselves immensely along the way.
With true to life characters, a fun storyline and the ability to make you feel part of the gang, Margaret K Johnson has written a novel every woman will enjoy.
Right from the start these characters leap off the page as living, breathing people. Aleysha, young and vulnerable, devastated that her marriage disintegrated so soon after her fairy-tale wedding. Colette, determined to recover from a recent serious illness and the heartlessness of her spineless husband. Nick, struggling to look after his two young children while their mother swans off to Australia to find herself. Emma, a mother and grandmother, who has just made a very difficult decision.
They all have regrets, they've all made mistakes, and they're all about to make a few more. The Dare Club explores how each character grows through these experiences. Their errors in judgement really make you feel for them, and their successes make you want to applaud and cheer. While the overall tone of the book is upbeat, scenes that depict serious issues are successfully interspersed with scenes that are pure light-hearted folly.
Part of me would have liked all four characters to be involved in all of the dares, but I think the choice of dares is great. Those readers who have been following Margaret Johnson's own daring exploits will enjoy seeing how she's developed them in the plot, and those who haven't will enjoy them anyway.Read more ›
A good read.
Each of the four main characters had their different issues and personalities, and they were easy to relate to real life characters making them all the more plausible. The twists and turns in the plot made for an excellent read.
Will definitely recommend to family and friends!
