Summary

Your big secret is out. What next?

For Lara and her daughter Eliza, it has always been just the two of them. But when Eliza turns eighteen and wants to connect with her father, Lara is forced to admit a secret that she has been keeping from her daughter her whole life.

Eliza needs answers - and so does Lara. Their journey to the truth will take them on a road trip across England and eventually to New York, where it all began. Dreams might have been broken and opportunities missed, but there are still surprises in store....

Anything Could Happen is a warm, wise, funny and uplifting novel about love, second chances and the unexpected and extraordinary paths life can take us down.

Good

I did enjoy this book I swopped between reading and audio, the characters were likeable but quite a bit of “misunderstanding” which you expect some bit not loads.

Annoying characters

Couldn’t finish this one sadly. Gave it a good go. Just tedious and a bit annoying how the characters act and react to the things occurring and eachother.
The narrator was excellent though.

Fantastic story told wonderfully

Don’t miss this one. If you want to be whisked away into a superb story with characters you just can’t help feeling involved with, this is the book for you. Don’t miss it, it’s one of the best and the narrator is amazing. I want to go back and spend more time there..
