It’s Livia’s 40th birthday and she’s having the party of a lifetime to make up for the wedding she never had. Everyone she loves will be there except her daughter Marnie, who’s studying abroad. But although Livia loves Marnie, she’s secretly glad she won’t be at the party. She needs to tell Adam something about their daughter but she’s waiting until the party is over so they can have this last happy time together. Adam wants everything to be perfect for Livia so he’s secretly arranged for Marnie to come home and surprise her on her birthday. During the day, he hears some terrible news. He needs to tell Livia, because how can the party go on? But she’s so happy, so excited – and the guests are about to arrive.


I whipped through this in super quick time, it wasn’t a particularly complex book or story but I just had to know what was going to happen. The characters were good, quite believable and in difficult situations, but some of the chapters were a bit drawn out where we’re really just waiting to know what has happened and where it’s going. It kept me turning the pages though so definitely worth a read.

Rating: 4 / 5
