  • Fabulously Entertaining!

    This is such a joy to read! It would be easy to tell you all the things it's about, but really it's about living your best life. Billy and Dawnie have packed up their van and taken off for pastures new; leaving their family behind, this couple of septuagenarians don't let anything stop them enjoying life to the full. Arriving in Devon at the house Billy has taken on a short term let, they shock the neighbours with their style - and everything else! However, before long they begin winning them over with their warm and friendliness, but it's not all happiness . . . This is a bright, uplifting read and just what we all need after the awful year the pandemic has bestowed upon us! Written with warmth and humour, this just oozes fun and laughter. Bringing out the very best of my imagination, I have giggled all the way through this one and - well, apart from the drum kit - would love to have Dawnie and Billy as neighbours! Fabulously entertaining, skilfully crafted and providing what is much needed at the end of this terrible year, this is definitely a five star read. If you haven't read any of Judy Leigh's novels yet, this is a great place to begin!

  • Warm and humorous

    main characters at first as they seemed a bit exaggerated but their natural warmth grew on me and enabled me to look beyond the physical descriptions. The friendships they struck up and the impact they had on the neighbours was joyous and it was interesting to see how the characters pasts defined them. I’d definitely love some positive neighbours like these especially if there’s home brew involved!

  • There are friends to be made everywhere

    This was a change of pace from all the mystery/suspense books I have been reading. It was really a joy to read. There was something about the way the author introduced the characters that made me feel like I knew them. She brought them to life and made you feel what they were going through. She even put in quite a surprising twist near the end of the book. I would recommend this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Heading over the Hill

    A diverse and interesting cast of characters make this book enjoyable. The central characters are in their 70's and looking to enjoy life as "empty nesters." To achieve this happiness they must embrace a different future. This story has lots of very funny moments, yet also sad and tender times. It was a most enjoyable read.

  • I enjoyed it

    This was a delightful book with quirky characters. It was better than I expected. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
