The Birthday That Changed Everything by Debbie Johnson

Published January 28th 2016 by HarperImpulse
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


"She wanted a birthday surprise, just not the one she got…

The last thing Sally Summers expected from her husband on her special day was that he’d leave her for a Latvian lap dancer half her age. So with her world in tatters, Sally jets off to Turkey for some sun, sea and sanctuary.

The Blue Bay resort brings new friends and the perfect balm for Sally’s broken heart in gorgeous Dubliner James. He’s just the birthday present she needs. And when the chemistry between them continues to spark as the holiday ends, Sally wonders if this is more than just a summer fling.

But James has scars of his own and Sally isn’t quite ready to turn her back on her marriage. This birthday might have changed everything, but what will the next one bring?"

My Review

This is my new favourite book by Debbie Johnson, it was hilarious and made me laugh out loud so much my boyfriend had to keep asking what was going on! Sally is a warm character with a difficult family, her daughter in particular is a nightmare of teenage hormones and bad attitude. Sally reminds me of an older Bridget Jones in that trouble seems to follow her around but she will always make the best of a bad situation.

An emotional tale of friendship, heartbreak and learning to love yourself, it brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion. 

I loved this book and highly recommend it. 5 out of 5 from me.

It is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle format.
