From the bestselling authors of GOODBYE, JIMMY CHOO comes a touching and bittersweet novel about one woman's attempt to let go of her worst fears - and live the life she's always dreamed of. Lucy Streeter has never been a risk-taker - as a single mother with a struggling business, she's never felt brave enough.
Her life is one of unfulfilled ambitions and missed opportunities as she spends her days making divine, flamboyant clothes that express all the passion she hides from the world. Until one evening when an enigmatic fortune-teller informs Lucy that her future is far from rosy - in fact, she doesn't have one!
Naturally Lucy doesn't believe him, but once his other prophecies come scarily true, she starts to wonder if he could be right.
His prediction pushes Lucy to throw caution to the wind.
So begins a riotous race against the clock as Lucy tries to squeeze a lifetime of fulfilment into a handful of days.
She faces her demons, confronts those who have annoyed her and finally risks the thing she's guarded most - her heart.
But will she actually live to regret it...?
