If your friend challenged you, would you dare? Charlie Blundell cannot get over the tragic death of her only daughter. She drifts between her job at the Art cafe and her hospital radio show, the only things that give her life purpose. Her best friend, the madcap Mercedes, cajoles Charlie into writing a ‘carpe diem’ list, but then swaps Charlie’s list with her own. Now, each must complete the other’s challenges, and the outcomes will astound both of them. The challenges begin as a series as relatively harmless, fun activities. Soon, though, the stakes increase when Charlie has to complete her challenges to save the hospital radio station. As the tasks become more demanding, a handsome stranger takes an interest in her, but he is not what he seems. One challenge causes a secret buried deep within her to surface, which may prove to her undoing. Three Little Birds is a story of love, friendship and discovery, laced with hilarity and topped by a wickedly funny parrot called Bert.
First of I must say I loved the cover of this book, its really quirky and I couldn’t wait to start reading it. The story revolves around two friends that have a list of challenges that they have to do, but they get more difficult as they go on. I found it a very satisfying story with a lot of different characters that the two friends meet along the way. It is one of those books that you curl up with. It made me question what challenges I would do. Will be purchasing more of Carol’s books.
