Twenty-nine-year-old Lily Buckley planned to be happily married and in her dream job by now. Instead she’s been single since being left at the altar three years ago, and works at her local paper, writing about giant vegetables at the village fete and a dog who looks exactly like Chewbacca.
Not quite what she was dreaming of.
So when Lily’s given the opportunity to write her own column it’s exactly what she’s always wanted – except what she has to write about. She has to do one thing every week that scares her.
With encouragement from sexy colleague – and adrenalin-junkie – Christopher, Lily agrees. From sky-diving to haunted houses, Lily is going to be pushed to her limit. But Lily is hiding something – the thing that she fears the most of all…
Ever since her heart was broken Lily has been afraid of falling in love again. Will fear hold her back once more – or can Christopher help her to finally find happiness?
An uplifting, feel-good story about friendship, romance, and finding the hero inside yourself. Fans of Marian Keyes, Mhairi McFarlane and Sophie Kinsella will love Colleen Coleman!
Love, Love, Love this book…..
I must admit it isn’t very often that I read Rom Com but very now and then it’s nice to swap genre and you cant go wrong with Colleen’s books. I am a massive fan of Colleen’s writing she never disappoints and always has me laughing out loud. So I always look forward to reading her books For Once In My Life is without a doubt Colleens best book yet. I absolutely adored it and devoured it in one sitting.
This is exactly the book I needed after the month I’ve had ( I wont bore you with the details) This story is certainly uplifting and light-hearted not forgetting it is so bloody funny. It will make you laugh until your belly hurts.
Three years ago Lily was left at the alter, then her life turns round when she meets sexy work colleague Christoper OMG hottie or what! Without giving to much away with the plot, I always say you only live once and you need to seize the moment and take the opportunity to do things that you have never done. Well this story is exactly what I keep talking about…..it is beyond awesome I freaking loved it.
The author brings us real life characters that bounce off the pages that you can relate to and I for one fall in love with. Lily is simply epic I would love to go on a night out with her she is full of fun.
This is a must read which I highly recommend giving it all the stars.
Colleen was born in Canada and raised in Ireland. She is the winner of the much-coveted Novelicious Undiscovered People’s Choice Award launched to find the next ‘chick-lit star’.
She spent years teaching English and Philosophy before finally taking a deep breath, scrunching both eyes shut, putting her pen to paper and vowing not to lift it again until she wrote the words ‘the end’. As a result, her first novel, Don’t Stop Me Now was born.
Colleen lives between London, Ireland and Cyprus with her very patient husband and very,very chatty twin daughters.
