    Recommended!

    I liked this book: it's funny, entertaining and engaging. I loved the plot, the fleshed out cast of characters and I laughed out loud more times. It's the first book I read by this author and it won't be the last. Recommended! Many thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    A Good Read

    3.5 Stars I really enjoyed Dee MacDonald’s first books, “ The Runaway Wife “ and “ The Getaway Girls “. Now for something different. Ms. MacDonald takes us to Penny Lane with Tess and Orla who own a dress/seamstress shop for plus sized women. As the title explains “The Silver Ladies of Penny Lane” are ladies in their 60’s. Tess divorced her cheating husband and subsequently lost the next man who came into her life when he died. She then battled cancer. She’s a 60's year old woman looking for love, companionship and someone to spend the rest of her life with. She also wants to lose weight before her daughter's wedding. So, she and her friend Orla join a slimming club. They also join a dating service which includes a cruise around the island of Greece. Both hope to find companions and Tess wants a date for the wedding. We are along for the ride with Tess’s ups and downs with both her weight and finding love. Tess grows and matures and she finally feels much better about herself. Unlike Ms. MacDonald’s previous books, Connie, the main character is absent. Connie is someone to look up to. She is brave and determined, unlike Tess and Orla. These 60ish women are immature, naive and insecure. They believe they need a male partner to be complete. But why? They are two successful business professionals, so why do they feel the need for a man? This I find deplorable! The ending was not what I hoped for. While not very enthused about this story, I still recommend it as a good read. I do, however, hope that Ms. MacDonald is planning to write more of Connie’s adventures. Those are great reads.

    Ok, but not inspiring

    The synopsis sounded promising but I found this book a bit slow going, too much detail in some areas and not enough in others - didn't get the laugh out loud promised, or the tears. Some of the characters didn't seem to have enough depth, and the ending was a bit too far fetched, even for a feel good book.

    Light-Hearted, Feel-Good Read!

    Light-hearted and very entertaining, this is such a feel-good read! Tess and Orla have both been unlucky in love; with their joint business venture the friends have moved forward with their lives, but both of them dream of having a bit of romance. With her daughter's wedding approaching, Tess despairs of the extra pounds she has gained and decides to do something about it. Orla's not so bothered about her weight gain, but persuades Tess to join her in a bit of internet dating .. and so the fun begins! As someone who is currently losing weight, this book is right up my street! Tess's determination to shed the pounds is inspiring, especially as she has an honest approach to it. The series of dates she embarks upon creased me up! Between herself and Orla, they 'match' with a wide variety of the male species and it makes for great reading. I smiled and grinned my way through this story, with the occasional grimace thrown in for good measure. Dee MacDonald's writing is well-paced and the story flows beautifully, keeping the reader's attention throughout. I certainly feel I want to read much more from her, as this one certainly brightened my day. I cannot find fault, and am very happy to give this novel a full five stars.
