Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Three women meet at a New Year’s Eve party and form a bond. We follow them through an eventful period. In the middle of the year they realise that this is the right time to make resolutions, not with the new year. We have Gemma whose high-earning husband is suddenly laid low by an accident, Saffron who is frightened to tell her new boyfriend she is pregnant and Caitlin who has just discovered she is adopted. The plot becomes a bit predictable but it’s well written with good pace and believable characters. A nice read.

If you like Lucy Diamond you might also like to read books by Victoria Henry, Fiona Gibson and Jane Green.

Synopsis

The Year of Taking Chances by Lucy Diamond

Because love is always worth the risk...It's New Year's Eve, and Gemma and Spencer Bailey are throwing a house party. There's music, dancing, champagne and all their best friends under one roof. It's going to be a night to remember. Also at the party is Caitlin, who has returned to the village to pack up her much-missed mum's house and to figure out what to do with her life; and Saffron, a PR executive who's keeping a secret which no amount of spin can change. The three women bond over Gemma's dodgy cocktails and fortune cookies, and vow to make this year their best one yet. But as the months unfold, Gemma, Saffron and Caitlin find themselves tested to their limits by shocking new developments. Family, love, work, home - all the things they've taken for granted are thrown into disarray. Under pressure, they are each forced to rethink their lives and start over. But dare they take a chance on something new?
