Publisher's Summary

Growing old disgracefully and having a grand old time....

Billy and Dawnie may be in their 70s, but that won’t stop them taking chances or starting again. Their grown-up children have families and lives of their own, so now it’s Billy and Dawnie’s turn and a life near the sea in Devon beckons.

But the residents of Margot Street (or Maggot Street as Dawnie insists on calling it), don’t quite know what to make of their new neighbours. Billy’s loud, shiny and huge Harley Davidson looks out of place next to the safe and sensible Honda Jazz next door, and Dawnie’s never-ending range of outrageous wigs and colourful clothes means she’s impossible to miss.

As new friendships are formed and new adventures are shared, Billy and Dawnie start winning their neighbours’ affection. And when life teaches them all a terrible lesson, the folks of Margot Street are determined to live every day as if it’s their last.

Judy Leigh returns with a soul-warming, rib-tickling, timeless tale of true love, true friendship and happy-ever-afters.

Amusing

An amusing read, weak plot and before it was done the narrator's voice made me cringe.

great little read

I really loved this story. we ate heading into this phase of our life and it helps you think of how you want to be in your next chapter of life. A time of friends and happy life or judgemental and grumpy and stuck in your ways.
so ask yourself "how do you want to spend your retirement"?

No point to this

I can’t imagine what weak thread of an idea the author had for this story. Definitely a time filler. Should have been an audible freebie.

Not for me

Only got past the first chapter, too many details put across in conversation. I wouldn’t be telling my kids dad their life story, he’d already know surely

Hard work…

Thankfully I’ve enjoyed many of Judy’s books, sadly this wasn’t one of them 🥺

I persevered thinking it would improve but it didn’t. I finished it because it cost me 1 credit / £7.99 I would claim a refund if there was such a thing.

light read

Always like Judy Leigh novels. She brings real into her novels with lots of helpful bits of advice which ring true.
