From Goodreads: “Liz Parker doesn’t like surprises, but winning the lottery isn’t something she would complain about. Before she has time to think about how to spend her new fortune, she’s hit with an even bigger shock than unexpected wealth. She has three months to live unless she finds a one-in-a-million bone marrow donor. While her medical team scrambles to locate her miracle, Liz throws together a bucket list, charters a private jet, and takes off to see the world. The journey of a lifetime holds even more surprises, including the hunky pilot she’s falling for at the most inconvenient time. Will Liz die before she can realize her happily-ever-after, or will the universe come through for her one more time? Find out in this humorous tale of true love and adventure!“
I loved Just a Silly Love Song when I listened to it earlier in the year, so when this audiobook came up for review I couldn’t resist it and I’m very glad I didn’t.
I do enjoy contemporary fiction and I love a bit of romantic fiction too, and this was full of it. It was predictable, and very cheesy at times, but that was okay as there were a few surprises in there and some very funny moments that made me smile and laugh out loud! You’d think with Liz’s terminal diagnosis, that this would be sad book, and it is in some places, but not so much that it spoils the fun of the story.
The chemistry between Liz and her private pilot Adam was amazing, so I knew they were going to have a fabulous adventure together around the world. I loved the trip Liz went on and could imagine some of the scenes in my head as I was listening. I loved the sound of the food market in Peru only selling desserts, yum, and the Giraffe Manor in Kenya sounded amazing, plus it’s a real place!
Stephanie Rose and Tim Paige’s narration was fab. They brought Liz and Adam to life perfectly really making me believe in their story.
I highly recommend this on audio if you’re looking for something lighter and fun to listen to.
Thanks so much to Hope Roy at Tantor Audio for my digital copy.
