The Golden Girls' Getaway: The perfect feel-good, funny read from USA Today bestseller Judy Leigh for 2022 Kindle Edition
The most uplifting book you’ll read this year!
'Judy’s done it again. Every woman over a certain age should read this wonderful book.' Jennifer Bohnet
It has been a long and lonely year for neighbours Vivienne, Mary and Gwen. All ladies of a ‘certain age’, their lockdown experience has left them feeling isolated and alone. They are in desperate need of a change.
Things start to look up however, when Gwen comes up with a plan to get them out of London by borrowing a motor home. In no time at all the ladies are on the road – away from the city, away from their own four walls, and away from their worries.
The British countryside has never looked more beautiful. As they travel from Stonehenge to Dartmoor, from the Devon and Cornish coasts to the Yorkshire moors, gradually the years fall back, and the three friends start to imagine new futures with no limitations.
And as their journey continues and their friendships deepen, and while the seaside views turn into glorious mountains and moors, Mary, Vivienne and Gwen learn to smile again, to laugh again, and maybe even to love again. Now they can believe that the best is still to come…
Funny, joyful and with a spring in its step that reminds you to live every day like it’s your last. Judy Leigh has once again written the perfect feel-good novel for all fans of Dawn French and Cathy Hopkins.

I've driven the routes in this story. It was pleasant to revisit them.
Each lady has her secrets, memories and concerns to chew over.
Each has to learn how to adjust to the others in their borrowed home.
There are many humorous episodes, several scenes to encourage empathy and an on going touch of romantic angst.
Some places are described in loving detail, others brushed aside almost.
Throughout, the ladies support each other and develop depth to their bonding.
Just lacks conviction for me but it is fun with a hint of fairy tale magic and that alone is worth a lot in today's general social climate.
I adore her books. I love her characters and the way you feel you get to know them so well. Funny yet poignant at times Judy's plots are fantastic.
I love also love the fact that her characters are older and feisty with plenty of life left in them! Looking forward to the next book that Judy writes.
