Two weeks, four friends and one big bucket list of secrets to unravel…
Val Murray and her best friend, Josie had been planning a ‘Thelma and Louise’ bucket list style holiday.

But Val doesn’t want to do it alone, so she enlists the help of her nieces, Carly and Carole, and their best pal, Jess, who jump at the chance to join Val on a trip of a lifetime.
What Val doesn’t realise is that Carly, Carole and Jess are all at turning points in their own lives, nursing crushing secrets, lies and betrayals.
Somewhere between Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York they all hit a crossroads and have to decide if they want to return to the lives they left behind or let Josie’s last wishes take them on a brand new adventure.

My thoughts: this series is reliably funny and full of heart, and this might be my favourite yet! I certainly laughed out loud and trying to explain Auntie Val to my husband was not easy, he just looked confused. With Carly and the gang in tow, Auntie Val has rocked up from Glasgow for the trip of a lifetime, in honour of her best pal Josie.
There are movie themed crazy moments, a pair of granny pants on display, almost getting arrested in New York, actually getting arrested in LA, rescuing a woman in Sarah’s name in Las Vegas, and all manner of craziness.
The gang have grown up and their lives are changing as their kids fly the nest (straight to Carly’s house in some cases) and they’re adjusting to getting older. But the bond between them is strong, there’s adventures to be had and love to be cherished. A really fun, lovely read perfect to enjoy while eating all that Easter chocolate!
