Annie’s Autumn Escape

I was looking forward to Annie’s Autumn Escape having enjoyed Daisy’s Dilemma by the same author.


Annie’s big birthday is looming.  Sixty!  She feels half that age, even if the mirror tells her otherwise.  Hubby Keith promises her a birthday to remember, and doesn’t let her down, but packing his suitcase to shack up with a forty-something isn’t quite the memory Annie wants to make.  Suddenly she’s single and – as an empty nester – very, very alone.  The Bucket List she and Keith had promised to work their way through is but a dream, until besties Bella and Caz rally around Annie and whisk her away for a trip that will be remembered for ever. Dubai. But it’s not all skyscrapers, bling, sand dunes and sheiks. As the sun sinks over the horizon of Jumeirah Beach… might there also be love?

My Review of Annie’s Autumn Escape

Rating: 4 out of 5.

When Annie’s husband, Keith, leaves her for a younger woman on her birthday, she’s devastated. Thankfully, her good friends Bella and Caz suggest that the three of them take a holiday in Dubai. However, they didn’t expect to be find the hotel they booked so crowded and they had to share rooms – Annie with a guy!

This is such a wonderfully fun take on a difficult subject of an older woman, in the autumn of her life, who feels that life is cruising along and is suddenly hit badly with a husband’s betrayal. Annie’s friends push her to try out new things and she slowly opens herself to being adventurous. Will she find new love too?

There’s a twist in this well told story that I didn’t see coming! Makes it an even better read.
