The Summer of Going Topless - Liz Davies


4.5 STARS


ABOUT THE BOOK -
Candice Summerville is invisible. No one seems to notice her - not really. Heck, she often doesn’t notice herself, except for her monthly scrutiny in the mirror to check on her body’s steady slide towards middle age.
But when her ancient, practical estate car is consigned to the scrap heap, Candice falls in love with a cute, purple convertible, and from that moment on her life begins to take on a whole new meaning. Strangers wave at her and people stop to talk, and suddenly she isn’t invisible any longer.
Life seems to be looking up, especially when she meets silver fox and handy-man, Paul. There’s just one fly in the ointment, one thing she that has her second-guessing herself.
Is it the car that Paul sees - or is it her?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love.
She’s married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and when she isn’t scribbling away in the notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you’ll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn’t very good at it, and loves to eat - she’s much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days.
She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper van and travel the world in it.

MY THOUGHTS -
Can driving a new style car suddenly change your whole life? Well it did for Candice!

Super cute, fun story! I really enjoyed this one. Everything about this book was fun, fun, fun. I am sure I also enjoyed it because I am in my 50's (and I could really relate!) but don't worry.. that is not a prerequisite for reading LOL. This book would be enjoyable at any age!

Great characters. I loved Candice and I loved seeing her transformation, even if her family wasn't so keen on the idea. She was such a likable and relatable character.

This had a chick-lit feel but was also very heartwarming. And... a great ending!
A really nice end of summer read.
Would love to read more by this author.

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Rachel's Random Resources Thank You!!
