The Coffin Club by Jacqueline Sutherland
About The Book
Everyone deserves a second chance. Don’t they?
After losing her husband in a car accident, leaving her permanently scarred, wealthy widow Kat Alexander moves to the countryside to start a new life. Mourning not only her husband, but her last chance of motherhood, Kat is distraught.
Encouraged by her new and only friend Ginny, owner of the local animal sanctuary, Kat joins Young and Widowed, dubbed ‘The Coffin Club’ by its members.
There she meets young Spanish widower, Nico. Instantly drawn to each other, Nico seems like Kat’s perfect match. He is kind, caring, handsome, eager to settle in the UK, and most importantly, a father to five-year-old Magdalena, ‘Midge’.
This could be Kat’s shot at the one thing she has always wanted: to be a mother. But sometimes, be careful what you wish for…
When you feel you can touch the sky, you don’t really think about the consequences. Am I right?
This is the story of Kat, she has just lost her husband in an accident so, she decides to rebuild her life in the countryside. There, she will meet Ginny, who will advise her to join the “New Horizons”, a group of widows and widowers, also called “The Coffin Club”. There she will meet the “perfect” Nico, who also has a daughter; maybe the perfect family is waiting for her? Or is it not… ?
Let’s be honest, a group called “The Coffin Club” doesn’t say anything good about it… maybe something macabre or a really twisted humour? So, when Kat meets Nico, she falls in love with him and her daughter, the dream she always had is now reachable, but at what price?
I have to say that I really wanted to read this book and it hasn’t disappointed me at all, on the contrary, I couldn’t stop reading it! I liked that the story is told with Kat’s voice; seeing her grieve and emotions from first hand makes the story more appealing and emotive. But also, I know that I am not really a trusty person, but marrying someone in a short period of time because you want the “perfect family” is not really my idea… but I can’t understand how she feels lost and thinks that having the “family” she is desiring will make everything perfect. As you can imagine, this will not be happening; twists and surprises will be waiting for you above the story making it one of the best reads of the year.
