Smiles and tears x

Bonnie and Stan are in the later years of their lives when Stan in diagnosed with a terminal illness. His biggest worry though, is can Bonnie cope alone? He starts to go on 'dates' to try and find the perfect partner for Bonnie when he is no longer around. The book is set in two time periods - the MerseyBeat era of the 1960s and the present day. The story glides beautifully between the two and the stories about Stan's band 'The Best Boys' made me feel like I was there in the Cavern Club. There is a lovely surprise at the end, and the narrators are brilliant (Victoria Fox and Peter Kenny). They grabbed me from the beginning and my dog had extra long walks so that I could listen to more. I'm a great fan of Anna Stuart in her other guise as a historical fiction writer, and I hope there will be more contemporary fiction from her in the future. Laughs out loud and the occasional tear. A fantastic listen!
