Blog Tour - A Year of Mr Maybes by Judy Leigh


Never say never to falling in love…

Val didn’t expect to be starting again in her seventies, but when life gives her lemons, Val is determined to make lemonade.

Settled into her new home – a picture-perfect fisherman’s cottage in the small Cornish seaside town of Lowenstowe – Val is ready to start a new chapter. And with her son due to get married next Christmas, there’s also the little job of finding herself a plus-one to help her face her ex-husband and his new girlfriend.

With the support of her neighbour Connie, and after decades of married life, Val takes the plunge back into the world of dating with trepidation and excitement. But can she remember how the single life works, let alone what her type is? There seem to be plenty of Mr Maybes, but no sign of Mr Right.

As the year passes, and as friendships and community life flourish, Val begins to blossom. And as Christmas approach, she might just decide she doesn’t need that plus-one after all - although never say never...

Judy Leigh is back with her trademark promise of laughter, love and friendship. The perfect feel-good novel for all fans of Dawn French, Dee Macdonald and Cathy Hopkins.

What do you do when your marriage of forty years is over? You've caught your husband with another woman? You make it your mission to find yourself another ma. But are you doing that to make him jealous, to show him you've moved on, or because you simply can't bear to attend your son's wedding on your own?

This is a soft and gentle story about learning to live after the breakdown of a long-term marriage, discovering who you are, and learning to love yourself and your new life.

It also embraces the complexities of love and relationships, and explores a whole raft of them, showing that no two are the same.

But the main focus and drive of the story is that being happy in yourself is paramount, and that life doesn't have to grind to a halt when a relationship ends.

Gentle, sweet, yet with deeper issues simmering beneath the surface, this is an uplifting look at the older side of life.
