Description

Fall in love with the hilarious and heart-warming new novel of long lost loves and second chances, from the author of The Flip Side

Three friends. Two summers. One chance to find the way back to you . . .

When Simon reconnects with his first love Sylvie - the French pen pal he never met - he is determined to not let her go again.

However, life isn't so straight-forward at sixty as it was at sixteen. His daughter's getting married, he's got a B&B to run, and his larger-than-life school friend, Ian, has abruptly waltzed back into his life.

Deciding to seize this second chance, Simon sets off on a bike ride from Bristol to Bordeaux with Ian in tow, on the very same route they covered as teenagers in pursuit of love.

But although they now have better bikes, more acceptable haircuts, and Google Maps, some things never change, and it soon becomes clear that this trip will have even more bumps in the road than the first . . .

My first book from this author.

Simon is a widower, living and working at the Dorset B&B he ran with his wife up until her sudden, unexpected death 10 years before. His only daughter Anna is due to be married soon and is ready for her new life. For Simon, it looks like life is standing still for him until one day he catches sight of a notice of death for his best friend from when he was 16. Raj, Simon and their friend Ian spent the summer cycling to France at 16 in order to meet Simon’s pen pal Sylvia. The trip didn’t quite go according to plan and the boys didn’t see each other again….until paths are crossed in memory of Raj.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the way the story was told in the present day as well as through flashbacks to the 1970s. I was rooting for Simon all the way through.

Thank you NetGalley for my chance to read and review.
