It’s never too late to live the dream…
Carla Sullivan’s 50th birthday is fast approaching when her whole world is turned upside down. Discovering her feckless husband is having yet another affair and following her mother’s death, she is in need of an escape. Finding an envelope addressed to her mother’s estranged sister Josette in the South of France gives Carla the perfect plan.
Seizing the moment, she packs her bags and heads to Antibes to seek out the enigma known as Tante Josette. But as the two women begin to forge a tentative relationship, family secrets start to unravel, forcing Carla to question her life as she has always known it.
A heart-warming tale on the beautiful French Riviera, which will keep you guessing.
This one of those new life novels, and I thought it was great fun. I like the story of starting over and living your best life. Those are the best ways to live. Carla is turning 50 and some big changes are afoot. Her mom passes away, and she finds her husband cheating once again. With a letter from her mother, she travels to South France to see her aunt and reclaim her life.
Carla has to reunite with her aunt and learns why they have not spoken for a long time. This is about her life chnaging and she decides she is going to come back to this place and have a new life. The story is about finding the best in life, getting along with family, and trying to make sure you take care of yourself.
The audiobook narrator was great, and she used different voices that kept me listening. I liked her execution of the story and would pick up more books she narrates, I found her voice engaging.
