The Year Of Taking Chances – by Lucy Diamond

Orginal Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

It's New Year's Eve, and Gemma and Spencer Bailey are throwing a house party. There's music, dancing, champagne and all their best friends under one roof. It's going to be a night to remember.

Also at the party is Caitlin, who has returned to the village to pack up her much-missed mum's house and to figure out what to do with her life; and Saffron, a PR executive who's keeping a secret which no amount of spin can change. The three women bond over Gemma's dodgy cocktails and fortune cookies, and vow to make this year their best one yet.

But as the following months unfold, Gemma, Saffron and Caitlin find themselves tested to their limits by shocking new developments. Family, love, work, home - all the things they've taken for granted - are thrown into disarray. Under pressure, they are each forced to rethink their lives and start over. But dare they take a chance on something new?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Three different women, three different stories… But they are all connected and it all starts New Year’s Eve, with some resolutions.

Each one of them is in for something new and changes are ahead. Can they stand the pressure and be strong?!

When Gemma’s husband Spencer has an accident Gemma sees her family life turned upside down. Spencer is not the same anymore and they kids… Then Spencer is gone…

Saffron is pregnant, but what about the father?! She writes him a letter, but finds out weeks later that she didn’t post it. Now she has to face him and tell him the truth. And she is also in for a change in her job and living situation.

Caitlin finds out something that might change her life and she meets a guy, but is he the right one for her?!

The three women bond and built up a strong friendship. I was glad they had each other throughout the story and they were always there for each other. They also build up a great business.

This book is about family and friendship, the good and bad times and so much more. Lucy found a great way to include all three women into the story, change the perspective from chapter to chapter. I liked them all from the start and enjoyed being part of their story.

I loved how they all had their own story to tell, but then it was one story combining the three of them - great! Oh and the title is perfect for the book...
