Sunshine and Second Chances by Kim Nash

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.

The Summer of Second Chances is the third novel by Kim Nash and this time she is jetting us off to Portugal with four friends who are all escaping the daily grind of lives they are deflated by to celebrate their 50th Birthdays.

This is perfect Summer reading set in a gorgeous luxurious setting, a light and easy read that focuses on many difficult aspects in the womens lives that many of us will find we relate to from weight to romance, health problems and grief there are many day to day struggles touched upon but the firm friendship and support they have for one and other means that they are all their to soundboard their problems.

There is a hint of romance and a splash of humour which brightens the mood of this storyline. I was a little worried at the start of this book when we meet each of the women that with there being a vast amount of main characters that it would be hard to differentiate between each of them but Kim Nash has developed each of the women’s characters so well that their personalities and characteristics shone through making it easy to keep track of who was who.

The storyline does get your mind ticking and make you think that life is too short and you have no control of certain things that will happen to you so it is so important to do what you can for yourself to make you happy and live every day of your life as if it is your last.
