#5*Review for Sunshine and Second Chances by Kim Nash

It’s never too late to be offered a second chance at life.

Debs is newly single, Fiona is caring for her mum, Samantha is grieving, and Liv has the perfect life – or so she’d like her friends to think…

This year, these four life-long friends are turning fifty, and Liv is determined they will honour their promise to each other – made on a beach at sunrise twenty-nine years before – to celebrate this milestone together.

And what better place than a gorgeous villa where they will be spoiled and enjoy the stunning beaches, picturesque fishing towns and glorious climate of the Algarve?

But time away from home doesn’t always make the heart grow fonder. Sometimes it makes the thought of returning to your life too hard to bear. Especially with more than one gorgeous Portuguese man making hearts unexpectedly flutter…

It begins as a reunion in the sunshine, but little do the four friends know what life-changing decisions they’ll all be making before their flight home.

A heart-warming, feel-good summer read about friendship, love and second chances.

My Review:

Close friends who celebrated their twenty first birthdays by going on holiday together agree to meet up and holiday again to celebrate their fiftieth birthdays. They travel to a villa in Portugal where they find much more than they’d anticipated. It is a chance for them to reconnect, reflect, explore and decide . . . . .

This is a brilliant read, superb to escape into and I found it so easy to relate to the delightful characters, warts and all! The story shows the facade we show to the world can hide many different dramas, worries and concerns and that our closest friends can be fantastic supports whilst we work through our personal dilemmas, if only we let them! This is a lovely, heartwarming story that I thoroughly enjoyed. The characters are well developed, believable and each has their flaws which make them so unique and realistic. They may have been strangers to me at the start but by the end of the story they felt like old friends. This is a sumptuous summer holiday that most of are unlikely to experience, especially anytime soon, but it was great to visit Portugal and see the sights and taste the food vicariously through this story. There are other brilliant characters, too, especially Mikey and Eduardo, who have their own quandaries and dramas!

This is another delightful read by a highly talented author. It is a story which shows it is never too late to make changes in your life and to strive for happiness . . . . as well as being a fantastic, fun read that is great to escape into and reading it had me giggling through it and left me with a huge grin on my face. With more than one romance involved, this is also a story of reevaluating your life and helping make changes for the better.

I was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so.
