Happy hump day!
This was such a fun book and I am so excited to share my review with you today! Thanks so much Rachel for my invitation to this tour!
The Summer of Going Topless
Candice Summerville is invisible. No one seems to notice her – not really. Heck, she often doesn’t notice herself, except for her monthly scrutiny in the mirror to check on her body’s steady slide towards middle age.
But when her ancient, practical estate car is consigned to the scrap heap, Candice falls in love with a cute, purple convertible, and from that moment on her life begins to take on a whole new meaning. Strangers wave at her and people stop to talk, and suddenly she isn’t invisible any longer.
Life seems to be looking up, especially when she meets silver fox and handy-man, Paul. There’s just one fly in the ointment, one thing she that has her second-guessing herself.
Is it the car that Paul sees – or is it her?
And she’ll have fun, fun, fun till her daddy takes the purple convertible away….
This book was so much FUN and made me want to run out and purchase a purple convertible. Candace is pushing 50, divorced from a cheating husband, and her kids are grown up and out of the house. Her life is pretty humdrum… work, eat, sleep, repeat. Then one day her car breaks down with no chance of being repaired and Candace finds her self sporting a purple convertible. Suddenly everyone is stopping and taking notice of Candace! She starts to rejuvenate her life: yoga, haircut, a new outfit, and even a little romance. But then Candace begins to worry, is it her or is it the convertible?
Loved Candace she was so relatable and likable. I had a lot in common with Candace, I am turning 50 this year, I am divorced, and my kids are almost all grown up. Fortunately though I don’t feel quite as stuck in a rut as Candace did, but still there were a lot of things I could find extremely relatable. This book was just pure entertainment A lovely pick me up! Delightful characters and a whimsical storyline, the perfect book to end your summer with.

Author Bio –
Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love.
She’s married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and when she isn’t scribbling away in the notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you’ll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn’t very good at it, and loves to eat – she’s much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days.
She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper van and travel the world in it.
