The Summer of Going Topless by Liz Davies

The Summer of Going Topless

Candice Summerville is invisible. No one seems to notice her - not really. Heck, she often doesn’t notice herself, except for her monthly scrutiny in the mirror to check on her body’s steady slide towards middle age.

But when her ancient, practical estate car is consigned to the scrap heap, Candice falls in love with a cute, purple convertible, and from that moment on her life begins to take on a whole new meaning. Strangers wave at her and people stop to talk, and suddenly she isn’t invisible any longer.
Life seems to be looking up, especially when she meets silver fox and handy-man, Paul. There’s just one fly in the ointment, one thing she that has her second-guessing herself.

Is it the car that Paul sees - or is it her?

When you get to a certain age or stage in life, you begin to feel "differently." I don't want to say you feel OLD, but you feel less vital, or needed, or, to be honest, less noticed. Candice Summerville has reached that age. Not only are her kids grown and very self sufficient, her husband has traded her in for a newer model, along with a young son by the OTHER woman, now his wife.
At least Candice has her IT job, at which she excels. Her life has become routine, dependable, perhaps boring is more apt. Until one morning when her same old routine is disrupted by her old car giving up.

That is when she meets Jelly Bean. Life begins to change, color is added and Candice decides to figure out what she has been missing. As Candice begins reawakening to the possibilities in life, the reader may also start seeing the world with fresh eyes. What are you settling for, when there are endless possibilities all around you?

This is a fun read and a gentle reminder that we are no older than we make up our minds to be. Life is not over any day we wake up.
Does one need a beautiful and fun car to make a fresh start? It may be exciting to try for a while.

The author makes us feel like we are visiting a friend and gives us something to look forward to as Candice figures out her future.

Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love.

She’s married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and when she isn’t scribbling away in the notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you’ll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn’t very good at it, and loves to eat - she’s much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days.
She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper van and travel the world in it.
