On a Beautiful Day by Lucy Diamond
Treasure every moment. Life can change in a heartbeat.
What the fans say: 'Wonderful characters and the stories are always great, with twists and turns' Gemma
It’s a beautiful day in Manchester and four friends are meeting for a birthday lunch. But then they witness a shocking accident just metres away which acts as a catalyst for each of them.
For Laura, it’s a wake-up call to heed the ticking of her biological clock. Sensible Jo finds herself throwing caution to the wind in a new relationship. Eve, who has been trying to ignore the worrying lump in her breast, feels helpless and out of control. And happy-go-lucky India is drawn to one of the victims of the accident, causing long-buried secrets to rise to the surface.
Lots of issues explored in this story, and all of them are done with sympathy and tact. Light-hearted in places, it's not necessarily a light read, but it was entertaining all the same.
For a while I had a bit of trouble keeping each character straight in my mind, but that might have been more to do with me rather than with the writing or the plot.
An interesting ending...
