As the days luxuriate on and they eat, drink and be merry ( and get a tan ) each realises they have decisions, massive decisions to make that could change their lives forever, some back at home and some in Portugal!
I loved it, the humour, the truthfulness, the exploration of their lives, the meaning of such real friendship and got to say liked every character ( each very different, Deb was my fav fav ) and also enjoyed everyone else who made an appearance in the book, there wasn’t one cast member I didn’t like
The words ‘feel good’ were made for this book and I really did feel uplifted reading it, I also wanted to pack our cases and head off to Portugal so enticing were the visuals given of scenery, food and lifestyle
Written in a way that made you feel you were part of it and that you actually knew these 4 I can only say its a book made for the now and should be prescribed to everyone as I guarantee you will enjoy and feel happy and trouble free reading it
To say I adored this book would be an understatement - it brought out so many emotions! I loved the opening as I was immediately asking: What's going on here? A call... but what was behind it? So I had no choice but to read one - but make no mistake, I was always going to see what adventure the author had created. The novel is told from multiple POV's and I liked this - as not only did we get some introspection, we also learned how these friends saw each other. The description had me desperate to just escape the gloom of my four walls and sun myself in Portugal. The storyline had me nodding my head - but I also think that you don't have to be nearing the #Big50 to enjoy this book as the characters and their feelings were relatable - for any age. Sadly, we don't easily grow out of those things that way heavy on us - we just learn to adapt and love/accept ourselves until one day it might hit us and BOOM - it's time to start living your best life!
I just adore the characters that Kim creates - I have to admit, I couldn't help but see a bit of Kim in some of these awesome women - from sayings, behaviour and outlook - but a dash of Kim is what brought out the magic in these women! Olivia is rich financially but feels 'poor' in other areas of her life - her husband and children take her for granted, she's fed up and I think a little bit lonely as she has nothing for herself. Samantha is a widow, has a grown up child and feels ignored, alone and unappreciated. I really felt for her. Debs made me laugh and I could TOTALLY relate to her: an emotional eater (*waves*), her husband left her for a younger/fitter woman...her neighbour/friend! OMG - uses alcohol as a crutch but then when she meets someone abroad, she realises that life is too short to not follow her dreams. I could easily relate to her insecurities, never feeling good enough, comparing herself instead of appreciating her qualities. So emotive - Nailed it, Kim! And then there's Fiona - she is a carer for her mother and doesn't really have a life of her own. Lonely, confused and comes to finally realise something that her friends have known all along. Of course there are also some wonderful male characters - some with their own struggles (so well written!) and some looking for love. What was also fab were the few nods to some familiar characters from previous novels - but you don't have to have read those - it was just a mention to show they all came from the same place. I just adored them all!
So would I recommend this read? Holy #secondchances Batman - I most certainly do! An uplifting, inspiring read about living your best life, accepting yourself, women empowering women, friendship and finding your own happily-ever-after! Can't wait to see what Kim has next for us!
The time had come for that promise to be realized.
Set in the Algarve, a place I know and love, it's the perfect back drop for the four friends to renew the bond forged through years of their friendships, celebrate each other's successes and a time of self discovery when they can share their dreams and hopes for the future and help each other to be honest and face up to their lives at the present.
Sunshine and Second Chances is such a beautiful story, uplifting, heartwarming, emotional ( I definitely shed happy tears) and is certain to give you all the feels. I absolutely loved it and was completely enthralled from the very first page all the way through to the last.
Fabulous characters too, all so human and totally relatable.
Another first class winner for Kim Nash and I for one can't wait to find out what Kim has in store for us in the future.
5 stars all the way from me and a highly recommended read!!
While there’s a love interest element to this story, what binds it together is the gorgeous friendship between the friends, through ups and downs. I really enjoyed how, over the course of a week, they help each other realise some important life lessons to get their happy endings. Also, while I’m ten years younger than the ladies in this book, there was a lot I could relate to and Kim Nash does needy teenagers and husbands very well!
I’m already looking forward to Kim’s next book.
