Many thanks to publisher Boldwood Books for my spot on this Blog Tour.

One of the best books in this genre that I’ve ever read.

73 year old Jen accepted a marriage proposal and Paris was the destination for her hen party with 4 of her best friends. And along with sightseeing and fine dining, each one of them had the opportunity to look into their lives and make some changes. Some more dramatic than the rest.

My first book by author Judy Leigh, and I was blown away by the sheer grace of these women. They all had things happening in their lives. To see them coming out of their shells was amazing. I cheered them on from the sidelines. Change is not easy, especially change after 50 years of living the same way was certainly difficult. But these women showed me how it is done; their transformation was absolutely awe-inspiring.

The initial few chapters showed me their lives, and the rest of the book was completely in the favor of Paris. The author’s style of storytelling was interspersed with food and wine.. Lots of wine and champagne.

These hens brought a special joie de vivre into the story. They showed me how life was meant to be lived. But make no mistake, it was all done realistically. Their lives were not all rosy and nice. Loneliness, good and bad marriages, lost partner, single life all were shown. A week in Paris was all that was needed for them to be filled with renewed determination. True friendships made over aqua acrobatics helped the process.

The Five French Hens rocked!! How can anyone resist such a book? Ah, c’est la vie!!

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

When 73 year old Jen announces that she is going to marry Eddie, a man she met just a few months previously on a beach on Boxing Day, her four best friends from aqua aerobics are flabbergasted.

The wedding is booked and, when the groom decides to have a stag trip to Las Vegas, the ladies arrange a hen party to beat all others -a week in the city of love, Paris.

From misadventures at the Louvre, outrageous Parisian cabarets, to drinking champage with dashing a millionaire at the casino, Paris lives up to all their hopes and dreams. But a week can change everything, and the women that come home have very different dreams from the ones who got on the plane just days ago.
