Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we’ve got another Rachel’s Random Resources tour on deck with the next instalment in author Shari Low’s series about lifelong friends and the multitude of ups, downs, troubles, and ultimately triumphs they get into on their journey together. We’ve featured the others here on my site, so it only made sense to follow the girls along on this next trip...and boy what a trip it was! Ladies and gents, pack your bags as we jet set on our next adventure through the pages with today’s blog tour guest and ebook of choice...
About the book...
Two weeks, four friends and one big bucket list of secrets to unravel…
Val Murray and her best friend, Josie had been planning a ‘Thelma and Louise’ bucket list style holiday.
Now Josie is gone, and Val needs to make the trip before it’s too late.
But Val doesn’t want to do it alone, so she enlists the help of her nieces, Carly and Carole, and their best pal, Jess, who jump at the chance to join Val on a trip of a lifetime.
What Val doesn’t realise is that Carly, Carole and Jess are all at turning points in their own lives, nursing crushing secrets, lies and betrayals.
Somewhere between Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York they all hit a crossroads and have to decide if they want to return to the lives they left behind or let Josie’s last wishes take them on a brand new adventure.
Let’s see, we begin like most of the other novels, in jail.
Yep. The slammer, and we’re not just talking about Carly, but the WHOLE GANG...and what’s more, the whole ordeal isn’t even what they think it was about. Oh yeah, Val has been keeping secrets, but it was with good intentions and a desire to carry out the once-upon-a-time made wishes of two women that were meant to be friends til the end...yet that end came much too soon for one of them. But, I’m getting all maudlin here, and there’s so much more to feel, experience, and ride or die for!
Each one of the gals is at a crossroads, whether they realize it at first or it slowly dawned like the morning sun. One has everything they could ever dream of...a life among the Hollywood boulevards, the man of her dreams, and a life of luxury...but what she really wants it HOME, family, and to be surrounded by those she chose versus by blood alone. Another has presented such a front to friends and followers that she’s lost her true self, including that connection to her partner for better or worse in life’s trials and tribulations. Still another is chasing down the dreams of their younger self in the desire to carry out a plan hatched many years ago, and yet when push comes to shove, may just realize the plan was never really meant for the two of them, but the extended family she now has. Yes, there is much afoot between the pages as self realization takes them to new places, and yet another stay in the clinker...but in the end, their new beginnings will take them to heights they never knew they could reach.
A great read for Contemporary Fiction fans and Women’s Fiction fans alike.
