About the book:
A Dozen Second Chances
What are the chances that twelve little tokens could change a life?
Seventeen years ago, Eve Roberts had the wonderful life she’d always dreamed of: a degree in archaeology, a gorgeous boyfriend, and exciting plans to travel the world with him, working on digs.
But when her sister Faye died, the life Eve knew ended too. Faye’s daughter Caitlyn came to live with Eve, her boyfriend left, and she quickly gave up on her dreams.
Now approaching her fortieth birthday, Eve faces the prospect of an empty nest as Caitlyn is leaving home. Caitlyn gives Eve a set of twelve ‘Be Kind to Yourself’ vouchers, telling her that she has to start living for herself again, and that she should fill one in every time she does something to treat herself.
With her very first voucher, Eve’s life will change its course. But with eleven more vouchers to go, can Eve learn to put herself first and follow the dreams she’s kept secret for so long? Because life is for living – and as she well knows, it’s too short to waste even a moment…

Oh my goodness, what a lovely, warm and uplifting book this is! From the opening lines right up until the very last word A Dozen Second Chances took a hold of my heart and didn’t let go. With memorable characters that you can’t help but fall in love with from the start, I loved every moment of this heartwarming story.
As Eve Roberts fast approaches her fortieth birthday, she is also facing the prospect of an empty nest as her daughter Caitlyn, who she has brought up as her own since the death of her sister Faye, is about to leave home. Caitlyn gives Eve a set of twelve ‘Be Kind To Yourself’ vouchers, telling her that she must start putting herself first and begin to live again.
With her very first voucher Eve’s life begins to dramatically change its course as a face from her past makes a reappearance, sending her emotions into turmoil. With eleven more vouchers to go, will Eve be able to do what Caitlyn wants and put herself first? Can she go back to the dreams that were put on hold when her sister died? And what, if anything, should she do regarding her feelings for a certain well known TV archaeologist?
What follows is a beautifully written story of love, family, missed chances and how it’s never too late to follow your dreams. I loved everything about this gorgeous story, with my heart being completely stolen by Eve’s Gran, a larger than life character who I adored from the moment she was introduced. With some genuinely laugh out loud moments and a poignancy that will melt your heart, there isn’t anything I didn’t love about A Dozen Second Chances.
The perfect book to lose yourself in at the end of a stressful day, Kate Field has written a heartwarming story that will leave you with a warm glow as you turn the final page. I honestly can’t recommend this lovely book highly enough, so why don’t you take a leaf out of A Dozen Second Chances and be kind to yourself by buying a copy today. You won’t regret it!
