About the Book:
Seventeen years ago, Eve Roberts had the wonderful life she’d always dreamed of: a degree in archaeology, a gorgeous boyfriend, and exciting plans to travel the world with him, working on digs. But when her sister Faye died, the life Eve knew ended too. Faye’s daughter Caitlyn came to live with Eve, her boyfriend left, and she quickly gave up on her dreams. Now approaching her fortieth birthday, Eve faces the prospect of an empty nest as Caitlyn is leaving home. Caitlyn gives Eve a set of twelve ‘Be Kind to Yourself’ vouchers, telling her that she has to start living for herself again, and that she should fill one in every time she does something to treat herself. With her very first voucher, Eve’s life will change its course. But with eleven more vouchers to go, can Eve learn to put herself first and follow the dreams she’s kept secret for so long? Because life is for living – and as she well knows, it’s too short to waste even a moment.

I would have been happy to read an easy chick lit novel as I thought this would be. But instead I got a book that was thoughtful, mature, and meaningful. I loved it. I was so pleased to read about a strong woman, a woman who could still be soft, feminine and romantic, yet hold her own and also be independent.

This book took me by surprise. It was not what I expected, and I liked that. I enjoyed the story, not wanting to put it down. This isn't your ordinary boy meets girl story and there are clever little plot twists along the way. This is so much more than a love story, a romantic read to keep you guessing with an ending as satisfactory as the best of them. Give it a try. It will stick with me for awhile for the simple reminder to be good to myself. ❤️

Thank you NetGalley, Kate Field, HarperCollins UK and One More Chapter for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.



  1. As stated by Stanford Medical, It's in fact the one and ONLY reason this country's women get to live 10 years more and weigh an average of 19 KG lighter than us.

    (And realistically, it has absolutely NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret exercise and EVERYTHING about "how" they are eating.)

    P.S, I said "HOW", not "WHAT"...
