The Year of Taking Chances by Lucy diamond

THE BLURB
It’s New Year’s Eve, and Gemma and Spencer Bailey are throwing a house party. There’s music, dancing, champagne and all their best friends under one roof. It’s going to be a night to remember.

Also at the party is Caitlin, who has returned to the village to pack up her much-missed mum’s house and to figure out what to do with her life; and Saffron, a PR executive who’s keeping a secret which no amount of spin can change. The three women bond over Gemma’s dodgy cocktails and fortune cookies, and vow to make this year their best one yet.

But as the following months unfold, Gemma, Saffron and Caitlin find themselves tested to their limits by shocking new developments. Family, love, work, home – all the things they’ve taken for granted – are thrown into disarray. Under pressure, they are each forced to rethink their lives and start over. But dare they take a chance on something new?

WHAT I SAY
I borrowed this book from my friend karen as she knows i like lucy book. I really enjoy it
Thank you for letting me read i like the cover so much too i just makes you want to pick up and read .

The book starts off with three girls Gemma, Caitlin and Saffron, who do not know each other meeting at the New Year’s Eve party of Gemma and Spencer what a party The girls bond over the cocktail and had a few drinks they seem to enjoying the fortune cookies and the drinks they are laughing and hoping that next year their life will be better can they be ?
They are enjoying each other company the drinks are flowing and so is the laugher they are going to form a girl band! What fun they are having .

Each one of them is so different but they just get on so well . They soon become best friends . Each of they want a better life .

The girls seem to grown as the year unfolds they all seem to change in their outlook on life and what they want for the future. Do they get what they want ?
They all are normal girls with everyday problems like we all had .

Gemma is married to Spencer and has two children. Spencer and Gemma are very happy together and are very deeply in love i love both of them they seem a great family .

Caitlin is only in the village for a short period to pack up her mums home after the sudden death of her mum. She not coping very well with it at all .Her mum was her best friend her life now has been turn up side down by her death .
