Two friends. Two Carpe Diem lists. One proviso.
When Charlie Blunkett and Mercedes Thomson swap bucket lists, neither can possibly know how much their lives will change. There will be challenges that neither expected to ever face, and for one of them, an insurmountable fear to conquer.
Charlie is about to discover the importance of seizing the day. It is a journey that will take her to dark places, teach her to love again and to come to recognise who she really is. However, it will be a rocky road and there is danger afoot that could threaten her happiness and her life.
What did I think?
This is a fabulous story about friendship, and love and about never giving up despite what has happened in your past. It's about grabbing every opportunity which is offered to you and about living life to the full.
It's massively inspirational, hugely motivational and makes you want to get up off your lazy ass and do something worthwhile and memorable. Life is for making memories, you can't change the past, however traumatic it was and how it has affected your future, but you do have the chance to be happy again and deserve to take that chance.
There was laughter, tears and tons of fun written into this book and I felt like I'd gone on a rollercoaster of emotions but came out better for it at the end. I'm sure lots of people will take lots of things from this book and feel completely compelled to do something inspiring!
I absolutely loved this book!

The wine heiress, the faded entertainer, the operatic diva, the politician's wife - four women who can’t say no….
Four women who should be happy with what life has given them. Success, beauty, money and fame. But never judge a book by its cover, because on the outside they may all seem to be completely in control of their lives, but under their fashionable facades, deep within their souls, they are all battling with a common demon…they are all addicted. Addicted to things that could ruin their very existence. In fact for one, it will snuff it out for good.
Four women…one death, one killer…
