Book Review: The Second Chance Holiday Club By Kate Galley


It’s never too late to change the habits of a lifetime…

Evelyn Pringle isn’t the sort to make rash decisions. Or any decisions, really – she’s always left that sort of thing up to her husband. But he’s been found dead, wearing his best suit, with a diamond ring in his pocket that doesn’t fit her. When Evelyn finds a letter addressed to a woman on the Isle of Wight, she decides to deliver it. By hand.

So begins a very unusual holiday, and an adventure no one could have predicted – least of all Evelyn herself. With the help of some unexpected new friends, and a little effort on her part, Evelyn discovers that it is never too late to have a second chance at life and forge friendships that are well-worth living for.


From re-inventing yourself, friendships, to old secrets. This novel shows it does not matter what age you are, you can re-invent yourself at any age.

With Evelyn’s late husband passing, she discovers so much that we can see she kind of did know about but choose to overlook it by not acknowledging any of it. But now that she has, she has used this opportunity to grow as a person emotionally for once in her life.

It was difficult however we join her on this journey. It was an interesting read as it has mature characters in terms of their age as some do not learn lessons at a younger age, but this novel shows it does not matter at all.

Adventures can be had at any point in life.

3/5 Stars
