My Review: Back in Sandycove, we follow Catriona aka Cat on her journey of Just Say Yes, inspired or maybe put upon by her mother Annie and her friend. This sees her saying yes to a job change and sea swimming club. Sandycove sounds a fabulous place to visit and live. We also meet her friends Becca, Sinead who is mother to Rory, (I can’t say I was a fan of this character), LouLou, who split with Callum who ends up couch surfing. I love the ladies of the Forty Foot. There really isn’t much as wonderful as the Power of the Ocean. An enjoyable read, with some laughs, heartache and a lot of inspiration. Recommended.

The Sandycove Sunset Swimmers

Can learning to say ‘yes’ change your life?

When Cat Jones is given the opportunity of a lifetime to present one of Ireland’s most popular live daytime shows, alongside TV royalty David Fitzgerald she isn’t sure she is ready for the challenge.

But after being pushed by her mother’s friend Lorraine to say ‘yes’ to everything for a month, she reluctantly agrees.

What follows is a whirlwind of opportunities where Catis forced outside her comfort zone with varying degrees of success.

Once she accepts the challenge to take the plunge with the eclectic sea swimming tribe The Forty Footers’in Dublin Bay, she never looks back. She is warmly welcomed into their lives, and learns to find reserves of strength she never knew existed which helps her deal with a toxic ex, and a growing attraction for a handsome TV executive.

With best friends, Becca and Sinead also in need of a re-boot, can Cat empower them to choose ‘risk and adventure’ or will they go back to their old, safe lives?

Say ‘yes’ and your whole life will open up in wonderful ways
