About The Book:
Ruth the librarian fears she’s too old to find love, but a discussion about Lady Chatterley’s Lover makes her think again. Aurora doesn’t feel seventy-two and longs to relive the excitement of her youth, while Verity is getting increasingly tired of her husband Mark’s grumpiness and wonders if their son’s imminent flight from the nest might be just the moment for her to fly too. And Danielle is fed up with her cheating husband. Surely life has more in store for her than to settle for second best? The glue that holds Combe Pomeroy together is Jeannie. Doyenne of the local cider farm and heartbeat of her family and community, no one has noticed that Jeannie needs some looking after too. Has the moment for her to retire finally arrived, and if so, what does her future hold? From a book club French exchange trip, to many celebrations at the farm, this is the year that everything changes, that lifelong friendships are tested, and for some of the women, they finally get the love they deserve.

My Review:
Last year at this time I read The Golden Girls' Getaway by Judy Leigh and loved it, it was my first foray into this author's books. I was really happy to get this one from NetGalley and Miss Leigh did not disappoint. I don't know what it is but I just adore books with ladies of a certain age, who don't act their age and are sometimes up to no the best way possible.

This was such a hoot. In this one, we have Jeannie, Ruth, Aurora, Verity, and Danielle and we go through an apple farm season with them all. They go on a trip to France, enjoy their book club, work at their various jobs and deal with their families and neighbours all while trying to have a good time. I think my favourite character was Jeannie's mother, Violet, she is ninety-five, feisty and fun and let's not forget her jokes. (I love a good pun!) The characters in this book are relatable and the situations they find themselves in are true to life.

I loved this village and would love to live there and be neighbours with these ladies. I would so join that book club and give Matt a piece of my mind while I am at it. What I think is the best part of this book, or what I took away from it was the fact that female friendships are important, never act your age, and you're never too old to try something new or find new love. This was the type of book that you want to hug when you're finished reading it. My last review of this author stated I wanted to read more of her works and the feeling holds true after this one.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
