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…

A Dozen Second Chances is an emotional but heartwarming story of how Eve got her groove back.
After spending her entire Young Adulthood (and into her late 30s) raising her niece after a family tragedy, Eve finds herself with an empty nest and twelve tokens to use to treat herself. Not the easiest of tasks after all this time but Eve realises that life is too short and sets out to remedy this.
For me this book is about second chances and making the most of life and in the centre of this, the relationships we experience on the journey. Kate Field explores these relationships with sensitivity and a heartwarming gentleness that just resonated with me. She covers friendships, past and present romance, motherly love and self love.
I adored Eve and enjoyed joining her on a journey of self care and self discovery.
This is such a sweet and cosy novel reminding us that a second chance is never out of reach.
