Publisher's Summary

One morning, Connie McColl wakes up and decides to swap her ordinary life for an extraordinary adventure.... 

Connie McColl is finally free to make her own decisions for the first time in decades. And when she meets glamorous Gill and downtrodden Maggie at a rather dull flower arranging class, it seems that she’s not the only one dreaming of adventure. The three very different women all agree it’s about time they had a holiday to remember. 

So they make a pact for this summer to be their best yet - and drive off into the sunset together.... 

As they meander their way along the beautiful beaches of France and onto the glorious delights of Italy in their luxury campervan, the new friends have plenty of fun and frolics in the sunshine. But the vacation isn’t quite what they expected. 

Gill will do anything to have one last holiday romance, Connie has a surprise inheritance awaiting her in Italy, and Maggie has a secret that is going to catch up with them all.

In the end, all three women discover that the journey they thought would be their last really is just the beginning.

Almost as good as the Silver Ladies of Penny Lane

Better than the book it sequels but not the magic of SLOPL!! It is most refreshing to get away from 20 somethings love forever. But a bit sad to see older women without hope or faith floundering about cluelessly. Still a cute reading.

Girls Getaway Trip

Loved the story even though I anticipated different case scenarios in my mind some actual took place some didn't. Definitely left me wanting to know if they would ever get back together again due to the changes that took place in all three of their lives and the adventure they took together being acquaintances not actual friends until this particular trip.

The Getaway Girls

A fun summer read. I wasn’t sure what to expect when this book was selected for our book club but it was a nice surprise. A story of adventure and fun with a little drama for three women over 60. I really enjoyed reading it.

The Getaway Girls

Nice little romp through France and Italy.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book on a rainy weekend, really good escapism. One of those books were you get to know the characters like friends I felt sad when it ended.
Well worth a listen to escape the lockdown in beautiful countries with three fun amazing ladies .... Enjoy

Lovely Adventurous Story

I really like the story but the main character from Run Away Bride disappointing took a bit of a back-step in the story and wasn’t nearly as active or as interesting the first novel. The change of narrator and accent was also difficult as it seemed to alter her character.

Nevertheless, it was a most enjoyable, light-hearted read.

Lovely gentle story

I enjoyed this, it is an easy listening story with interesting characters that when the book ends, you feel you want to hear more about the antics of these 3 women.
