We all think we know who we are.

What we’re capable of.

Roz is a single mother, a physiotherapist, a sister, a friend. She’s also desperate.

Her business has gone under, she’s crippled by debt and she’s just had to explain to her son why someone’s taken all their furniture away.

But now a stranger has made her an offer. For one night with her, he’ll pay enough to bring her back from the edge.

Roz has a choice to make.

My Thoughts: 

I managed to win this book in a competition but I wasn’t taken with it as I thought I would be. I felt the story was a bit far fetched and very predictable. I did sympathize with Roz the main character who is finding it hard when she has no money and alot of debt but I am not sure she did choose the best choice, I mean how many people did she hurt in the end. But in a situation like the one she was in, what would you do?

Here Come The Girls By Milly Johnson

Here Come The Girls By Milly Johnson

Shirley Valentine, eat your heart out Ven, Roz, Olive and Frankie have been friends since school. They day-dreamed of glorious futures, full of riches, romance and fabulous jobs. The world would be their oyster.

Twenty-five years later, Olive cleans other people’s houses to support her lazy, out-of-work husband and his ailing mother. Roz cannot show her kind, caring husband Manus any love because her philandering ex has left her trust in shreds. And she and Frankie have fallen out big time.

But Ven is determined to reunite her friends and realise the dream they had of taking a cruise before they hit forty. Before they know it, the four of them are far from home, on the high seas. But can blue skies, hot sun and sixteen days of luxury and indulgence distract from the tension and loneliness that await their return?

My Thoughts:

I love Milly Johnson’s books, they always seem to put a smile on my face. I managed to read this book in two days as I was so looking forward to seeing how the girls got on with their cruise. I loved the fact all of the girls had a true friendship and that the problems they had were real life problems. Beautifully written, a lovely summer read. I enjoyed reading about the cruise ship too as I have never been on a cruise. Loved all the characters and really look forward to reading my next Milly Johnson book.
