Blog Tour - The Old Duck's Club by Maddie Please


Sophia Gregory is fading away…

Recently split from her married lover and about to turn sixty, Sophia doesn’t recognise the old woman staring back at her in the mirror. Where has her life gone so wrong? How has it come to this? A quiet holiday in beautiful Rhodes is the perfect chance for her to find herself again.

Until she meets the Old Ducks!

Bold and brash, Juliette, Kim and Anita are three friends who are determined not to grow old gracefully – and they are Sophia’s worse nightmare! But when Sophia is made an honorary member of The Old Ducks’ Club, she begins to discover a new side to life. Dancing and drinking till dawn Sophia starts to shake off her grey, drab old life and finds the fun side to living again!

And when she meets her gorgeous Greek neighbour, Theo, she thinks that maybe, if she’s just a little braver, she can learn to spread her wings again....

It’s never too late to teach an Old Duck new tricks!

A rip-roaring, laugh out loud story about the importance of friendship and always, always having fun! Perfect for fans of Judy Leigh and Dee Macdonald.



Ok-where can I sign up to become a member? These 3, now 4, friends have a connection that is simply marvellous. Although, I must say that they are all far from old. There's so much life, love, laughter and sheer zest for life that they'd put women half their age to shame!

This is such a lovely story of new beginnings, new (and old) friendships, and discovering what's really important in life. Each of the women have very distinct personalities, and following their collective and separate journeys was a delight. Add a wonderfully considerate and somewhat gentlemanly bore interest for the main character, as well as the most glorious location and descriptions, and you have one of the nicest ways to spend a few hours.
