Life is about to change forever…
When best friends, Tina and Jodie, make a drunken New Year’s Eve vow to change their lives before they hit the big 3 – 0, neither expected to end the year with much more than another hangover…

Twelve months later, Jodie is married and living in Provence – and Tina is exactly where she was a year ago (although now her rent is double). Tina can’t help but feel a little bit left behind, but as Jodie reminds her, she’s not thirty yet, there’s still time to quit her job, start her own literary agency and sign the man of her dreams!

Don’t miss the new gorgeously uplifting holiday romance from bestselling author Jennifer Bohnet.

Best friends Tina and Jodie make a pact that if their lives haven't changed by their 30th birthday's that they would move to Wales and raise alpacas and cats.  They should their agreement into the cosmos and New Years Eve to the background of fireworks. 

Well if you are wanting alpaca farming you have come to the wrong book as their lives do start to change.  The chapters alternate between Jodie now living in France, and Tina who is in London and taken in the most unlikely of lodgers. 

I loved reading about both of these ladies lives and seeing how over the course of the book that they changed.  There are huge secrets to be discovered in both their storylines, one of which made me feel really emotional. 

What I loved the most was that Tina is a literary agent, and the descriptions of the preparations for London Book Fair felt so real to me having attended this year myself. 

I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book and found myself whizzing through the pages.  I am a huge fan of this author and this was one of her most enjoyable.  I can't finish this review without mentioning the cover - just how gorgeous is it? Complete fits in with the story and so strikingly pretty! 

Thank you to Netgalley and HQ Digital for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily. 

Thank you to everyone that voted for this this week, I can between the cover and lovely story completely understand the choice.  Let's hope I enjoy this weeks winning book as much.
