Kim Nash: Sunshine And Second Chances

I’m delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for Sunshine And Second Chances today. My review is written with thanks to Kim Nash for inviting me on the tour and for my copy of the book.


Debs is newly single, Fiona is caring for her mum, Samantha is grieving, and Liv has the perfect life – or so she’d like her friends to think…

This year, these four life-long friends are turning fifty, and Liv is determined they will honour their promise to each other – made on a beach at sunrise twenty-nine years before – to celebrate this milestone together.

And what better place than a gorgeous villa where they will be spoiled and enjoy the stunning beaches, picturesque fishing towns and glorious climate of the Algarve?

But time away from home doesn’t always make the heart grow fonder. Sometimes it makes the thought of returning to your life too hard to bear. Especially with more than one gorgeous Portuguese man making hearts unexpectedly flutter…

It begins as a reunion in the sunshine, but little do the four friends know what life-changing decisions they’ll all be making before their flight home.

A heart-warming, feel-good summer read about friendship, love and second chances.


I absolutely flew through this book! I found myself completely immersed in the lives of these four fifty year old women. Kim Nash is brilliant at creating characters. Even though the lives of the women are very different to mine, there is something in all of them that I could relate to and I really enjoyed learning more about their lives. And where on earth can I find an Eduardo? He is absolutely gorgeous!

I read Sunshine And Second Chances on a rainy day in Leeds so it was a delight to be transported to Portugal, with its glorious sunshine and splendid views. Nash paints the scene so well I could almost believe I was on holiday with the girls myself.

Although Sunshine And Second Chances is a hugely uplifting novel, Nash does explore some incredibly emotional themes. Issues such as sexuality, grief, self esteem and dementia allow us to see another side of the central characters, and I love that they are approached in such a gentle and sensitive way, giving the reader much more than humour and romance.

Sunshine And Second Chances is available from Amazon.
