A hilarious heart-warming read about friendship, taking chances and finding love, second time round.
When Charlie’s husband leaves after ten years of marriage, her spirits hit an all-time low. She just isn’t sure how to pick herself up again. So, best friend Mercedes makes it her mission to put a spring back in Charlie’s step with the perfect bucket list.
As Charlie takes a chance and bungee jumps and belly dances her way through an array of adventures, her love life also begins to look up and she’s soon enjoying a few dates as a newly single woman. She begins to realise that finding romance, might not be so hard, especially when you’ve got someone like journalist Jake who has an adorable little boy and is very easy on the eye.
But is Jake too good to be true? As Charlie’s challenges on the bucket list get bigger, so do her questions about Jake. Should she continue to hold out for the fairy-tale? Or should she take a chance on Jake and hope for a happy ending?
What we say – review by Charlotte Foreman:
Take a Chance on Me is the kind of book you need to pick up when you’re feeling down. It’s a story that gives you a little pep, put things into perspective and will have you wondering if you’re living life to its fullest.
Charlie is a wonderful character; you can’t fail to like her and her generous spirit. She’s been through an unspeakable tragedy and moving on is hard, until best friend Mercedes decides enough is enough and sets Charlie a series of challenges. The remainder of the story is filled with real friendships, taking chances, facing fears and little smatterings of romance and action. Plus there’s a wickedly funny parrot too.
With this latest read, Carol E. Wyer shows readers life is worth living to its fullest so ditch your bucket list, don’t hold back and carpe diem.
