A classic Carole Matthews with a brand-new look.
Two sisters. One important birthday. A year of taking chances.

When twins Annie and Lauren attend their older sister Chelsea’s fortieth birthday party at the Dorchester Hotel, they wonder why their lives are so different. Chelsea’s husband is twirling her round the dance floor, while Annie’s husband has gone fishing and Lauren’s lover is at home with his wife and children.

Annie and Lauren decide it’s time to make a change and turn their lives around, it’s time they starting living for again. But have they left it too late? It’s now or never.

Praise for Carole Matthews:

‘An absolute joy’ Milly Johnson
‘A gorgeous novel that will delight’ Katie Fforde
‘Warm, witty and hopeful – I was charmed’ Sarah Morgan


Think Marian Keyes with a splash of Jane Green
Vito magazine
Witty, funny and incredibly touching
It makes you laugh one minute and cry the next
They get better every time
