Help Charlie embrace the single life in this romantic, funny, feel good read!

Since splitting from her husband, Charlie’s life has been stuck in a rut. Best friend Mercedes will do anything to put a smile back on Charlie’s face and so draws up a bucket list of things to help Charlie recover her mojo.

Sure enough, as Charlie works her way through the list, belly dancing and bungee jumping, she makes new friends and even begins to attract some male attention but some of it isn’t the right kind …

Journalist Jake gives Charlie butterflies but he almost seems too perfect – there must be a reason why he’s single. Perhaps Rob would be a better bet – yes he’s short and he drinks too much – but a girl can’t have everything can she?

The final challenge on Charlie’s list looms large. Can Charlie complete it and prove to herself that life is for living, whatever may have happened in the past? And can Jake get through to Charlie and stop her from settling for the single life or, the wrong man?



On a New Year’s Eve Charlie and Mercedes make a list of things they want to accomplish, but to make it even more interesting they exchange the lists. Charlie’s life has been difficult, after the death of her daughter and splitting from her husband, she needs new and good vibes in her life. She works at a cafe, but also has a big role at the hospital radio, which is important for the patients, that’s how she actually met her best friend Mercedes. Charlie starts doing all the challenges and as she is rather hesitant and lacking in confidence, in time she gets more confident and learns to love life again. Will all the changes help her find a new love as well?

It was a good book, which was not just fun to read, but also showed how even simple/small things can bring a big change. It’s comfortable to do the same things and fall into the same routine, but if you want your life to change and if you want to be happier, there must be something changed. It also showed how important is good friendship and how full of life can be people, who have a physical disability-it does not stop you from living the life you want to live. It’s an inspiring and motivating book.
