What are the chances that twelve little tokens could change a life?

Seventeen years ago, Eve Roberts had the wonderful life she’d always dreamed of: a degree in archaeology, a gorgeous boyfriend, and exciting plans to travel the world with him, working on digs. But when her sister Faye died, the life Eve knew ended too. Faye’s daughter Caitlyn came to live with Eve, her boyfriend left, and she quickly gave up on her dreams.

Now approaching her fortieth birthday, Eve faces the prospect of an empty nest as Caitlyn is leaving home. Caitlyn gives Eve a set of twelve ‘Be Kind to Yourself’ vouchers, telling her that she has to start living for herself again and that she should fill one in every time she does something to treat herself.

With her very first voucher, Eve’s life will change its course. But with eleven more vouchers to go, can Eve learn to put herself first and follow the dreams she’s kept secret for so long? Because life is for living – and as she well knows, it’s too short to waste even a moment…

#ADozenSecondChances

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

A motivational story with a relatable main protagonist, and an authentic life story. There is a fusion of heartwarming, humorous and poignant moments in Eve’s story of self-realisation. Family secrets are revealed, and Eve is forced to confront the rest of her life when Caitlyn leaves to begin the next chapter of hers.

The love Caitlyn has for the woman she calls mum is evidenced by her tokens. Each one giving Eve, a chance of a new beginning, or a way to recapture the potential of life chances, she believed lost.

The characters are believable, there is a nice multi-generational aspect to the story and a realistic romance.
