My review

What a beautiful adventurous book on self-discovery and finding inner happiness. I loved it from start to finish!!

A 66 year old woman Connie, suddenly realizes that she has been taken for granted by her husband and family and just decides to leave it all and run away. She packs her green car Kermit and off she travels…. From Sussex to Scotland meeting some lovely people and having her own adventures, mayhap a bit of love…

I loved Dee MacDonald’s style of writing, there is humor interspersed with introspection along with various fun filled occurrences, a jewelry heist, and a movie set too. Connie sees it all and experiences it all. The author Dee MacDonald kept me laughing at the various antics, kept me thinking about my journey of discovering my creative side, kept me sighing at the idea of love.

Connie’s journey down an unknown, unplanned road led her to meet some old friends, some new friends, some unusual protests, a movie set, some foxy characters. There is humor in the situations she finds herself, along with the emotions and love for her family who are initially confused about her leaving, but later understand.

She meets some wonderful people who teach her something about themselves and something about herself. An impulsive drive to freedom to revisit the places of her childhood, ultimately leads her to the decisions of her life. What a journey she has, and what a journey Dee MacDonald took me on!!

Dee’s book made me realize that life begins today and there is only one shot at life, and one shot of happiness. And that is NOW!!

I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.

My rating : 4 stars

Book blurb

One evening in early August, while mashing the potatoes for dinner, Connie McColl decides she’s had enough…

Connie is tired of solving one family crisis after another – usually involving her unruly grandchildren – while her husband Roger spends all day at his beloved golf course. Surely it must be time for her to shake off her apron and start living again?

So Connie packs a bag, gets in her little green car and drives off…

    1. It had me bursting into laughter at odd times, once at work, when everything was extremely quiet… Sheesh I had to convert the laugh into a cough… Uggh but good fun

    1. Ya it made me laugh in the middle of work… Hehe it was very funny. And If a 66 year old finds life, I should not give up at all, isn’t it?
      How are you Vijay. How is life and work.
