About The Book

On a cold December’s morning…
Caro sets off to find the truth: has her relationship with her father been based on a lifetime of lies?
Cammy can’t wait to surprise the woman he loves with a proposal. All he needs is the perfect ring.
Lila can no longer hide her secret. She has to tell her lover’s wife about their affair.
After thirty years, Bernadette knows it’s time. She’s ready to leave her controlling husband… and never look back.
Over the course of twenty-four hours, four lives are about to change forever…

My Thoughts

This had been a book quite complex, with difficult situations and quite interesting characters, don’t expect it to be a happy read, is touching and human, because life is never perfect, but you have to adapt as possible as you can and search for your happiness!
The story is told between 4 characters; Caro, who wants to know who is really her father, Lila that wants to make her secret affair public, Cammy that thinks it’s time to propose to her girlfriend, and Bernadette, who thinks it’s time to be happy and leaves her controlling husband. I know that it would seem that none of these characters have anything in common, but believe me, they have more than you ever thought. And you’ll have the chance to see them in their worst moments and discover their truth inside them.
I really liked most of them, except Lila, but I suppose that’s her job in the book, or in life, because I am sure that we all have a Lila in our life… Because that’s why this book is so human, you can relate to the characters and feel similarities to someone in our life. Maybe the situation will be a little extreme (it’s fiction!) but not how the characters think or act; it felt like someone is telling you their worst 24 hours of their lives. I had a good time reading the book, there’s a good ending for all of them, I can’t say happy, but they’ll have what they’ll deserve in the end, and sometimes is what you searching, am I right?
