Lil’s Bus Trip by Judy Leigh @JudyLeighWriter @bookandtonic @rararesources

About the book:

It’s always a good time for a road trip…
When 82-year-old Lil decides to book herself, her 65-year-old daughter, Cassie, and her friend Maggie on a bus trip across Europe, she hopes for a little adventure to counteract the monotony of life in sheltered accommodation.
Along with three members of the Salterley Tennis Club and the Jolly Weaver five-a side football team, whose ideas of a good time are rather different to Lil’s and strikingly at odds with each other’s, the merry band of travelers set out on their great adventure.
From moving moments on the beaches of Normandy, outrageous adventures in Amsterdam, to the beauty of Bruges and gastronomic delights of France, the holiday is just the tonic Lil, Maggie and Cassie needed.
And as the time approaches for them to head home, Lil makes an unexpected discovery – even in her advancing years, men are like buses – there isn’t one for ages then two come along at once. Is Lil ready to share her golden years, and can the ladies embrace the fresh starts that the trip has given them. Or is it just too late to change…

My Review:

After Heading over the Hill, and Chasing the Sun, I was really looking forward to another Judy Leigh book. In her latest book, 82-year-old Lil, her 65-year-old daughter, Cassie, and her friend Maggie are in for an adventure when she books them on a bus trip across Europe. They aren’t alone and have members of a tennis and football club on board.

I thought “Oh, this sounds fun” and what fun it was. I loved this journey and book at a time when travel is still not easy around the world. This helped me forget about that and focus on their journey.

I liked Lil, Cassie and Maggie and thought how spontaneous Lil was. How her decision to have fun came into being. The locations they visit are varied and I felt as if I were there with them. By now, I know that Judy Leigh is si skilled at showing human interaction and making a setting visual.

I have been to Normandy and Bruges. It was good to revisit them and get to know other places. Perfect uplifting escapism with lots of laugh-out-loud moments for the summer or any other time of year. The book has come at the perfect time for me.

Thanks to Judy Leigh, Boldwood Books and Rachel’s Random Resources for my ARC in exchange for an honest and voluntary review.

4.5 stars
