ABOUT THIS BOOK
Meet Phoebe, who’s 28, and Laney, Dot and Maggie, who are 68, 78, and none of your business. Together they'll prove that age doesn’t matter when it comes to friendship, belonging and an unquenchable zest for life.
When Framlingham’s famously all-female senior living home goes co-ed, a war between the sexes is declared.
Stuck in the middle, chef Phoebe Stockton is desperate to help her friends plot to keep the community that means so much to them. It’s become her life raft, too. She finds comfort in her beloved career that might finally make her parents proud. But Phoebe’s darling Nick is lining up on the other side of the battle, and their relationship is suffering collateral damage.
The stakes couldn’t be higher. If the home’s owner can’t improve business by moving the men in, he’ll have to evict everyone.
The women aren’t about to let that happen.
THE NOT SO PERFECT PLAN TO SAVE FRIENDSHIP HOUSE by Lilly Bartlett is a heartwarming and enjoyable story that has something for everyone.
Phoebe has just lost her mum with whom she had a complicated relationship and she is worried about her dad who doesn't seem to be behaving the way that she would have expected. But at least she has a job that she loves as a chef in the ladies care home where she gets to work for her best friend, June, even if it means she sees Nick every day - the man she yearns for but can never have. There is a lot going on in her life but when the care home owner decides that it is time for the home to house men and women together, the trouble is only beginning and as the battle lines are drawn, friends may even find themselves on opposite sides ...
THE NOT SO PERFECT PLAN TO SAVE FRIENDSHIP HOUSE by Lilly Bartlett has a wonderful mix of characters, some outrageous and funny, while others are more reserved and emotional, but all of them are loveable in their own way. This story will make you smile and make you think about old age in a new way that is refreshing and welcome. The setting and the feel of community and belonging is very well portrayed throughout and I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish.
THE NOT SO PERFECT PLAN TO SAVE FRIENDSHIP HOUSE by Lilly Bartlett is a delightful novel of life, love, and the pursuit of happiness regardless of age and everything else in between and I highly recommend it.
Lilly Bartlett’s cosy romcoms are full of warmth, quirky characters and guaranteed happily-ever-afters.
