Bring the sparkle and fizz back into your life with the help of The Gin O'Clock Club.
I just love a feel good read, especially now as the weather is turning cold, lockdowns are happening again and friends and family need each other more than ever.
The Gin O’Clock Club has been chosen for the June Recent Release Package as a bit of a pick me up, to wrap you up in a warm, cosy, heartfelt hug. Sure, it may not have been released last year (it was 2020), but it’s so irresistibly wonderful that I had to include it!
The premise is this…
Lottie is always in a hurry, rushing through her days ticking tasks off her to-do lists. Teddy is worried about his granddaughter - and he knows that his late wife, Lily, would have known exactly what to say to make things better. Now that Lily has gone, it's up to Teddy to talk some sense into Lottie.
With the help of Arjun, Geoffrey and Howard, the elderly reprobates who make up his Gin O'Clock Club, Teddy makes a plan to help Lottie find her way back to the things that really matter - family, friendship and love. But as Lottie balances a high-powered job with her reluctant attendance at whist drives, ballroom dances and bingo, Teddy wonders if she's really ready to open up her heart to the possibility of true happiness…
If you need a reason to stay inside, cuddled up under a blanket with a scented candle and some chocolate, this book is it. It’s a warm-hearted read with genuine characters that make you feel alive with pleasure and delight.
‘Rosie's writing is deliciously warm, with such well-drawn characters and heaps of comedy and heartfelt moments that bring a lump to the throat. A gorgeous comfort read that will keep you uplifted and hopeful during these crazy times we're living in.’ - Kirsty Greenwood Goodreads
