Publisher's Summary

Dear Lucy Silchester,

You have an appointment for Monday 27th July 2011.

Yours sincerely,

Life.

Lucy Silchester has received an appointment card. Actually, she's been invited along a few times to this appointment, but she keeps brushing the gold-embossed envelope under the shag pile carpet. She's taken her eye off the ball and has busied herself with work (a job she doesn't love), helping out friends, fixing her car, feeding her cat, seeing her family, and devoting her time to their life dramas.

But Lucy is about to find out that this is one appointment that she can't miss. And she can't escape it, either. Her life is about to catch up with her in the most surreal of ways....

    "The Time of My Life might just change your life."

    This book came into my life at the perfect moment. Though it is far from being a self help book, I found it so thought provoking that it's really put MY LIFE and my relationship to it into a whole new perspective.

    Not much has been good in Lucy's life for the past 3 years. A shocking emotional blow leaves her devastated and unable to cope. To try to get through it, she tells one lie. Which leads to another. And another and another until her entire life us basically one giant lie.

    Thanks, Life shows up. Lucy's world has to be turned upside down to ever get it put right again.

    The Time of My Life is everything I love in a book. It has heart and depth and humor and romance, plenty of fun and a few tears. Cecelia Ahearn has woven a tale full of vibrant characters in a compelling story of love lost and redemption.

    Amy Creighton is once again the perfect reader and she makes Lucy and all those in her life come alive.

    Fantastic read. Highly, highly recommend.

    "Fantastic "

    This story was hilarious, and the main character Lucy reminded me a little of myself. What a different concept for a story line as well. It gets you to think. I love the chemistry of the characters in the book,and the wit is hilarious. The only qualm was on occasion it was difficult to tell who was speaking what dialogue since the narrator didn't distinguish enough the characters voices. But I loved the voice, tone and inflection she had while reading. I would listen to more books she narrated. Very glad to have listened listened to this book!

    Story
    "Not Ahern's best, but a pretty solid book"

    The main character's life was annoyingly in disarray, which made her a bit hard to relate to at times, but Ahern's signature mixture of strangeness and heartwarming humor made this a really enjoyable read nonetheless. Ahern always has interesting premises in her books, and this was one of the most creative ones she's come up with. I read this book a couple of months ago, and I still find myself thinking about it on a weekly basis. It really sticks with you. The narrator is amazing, but I may be a bit biased because I love Irish accents.

    "Loved it!!!"

    I loved this book! I could totally identify with the main character's need to fit in her surrounding world. Listened to it in less than three days because I couldn't put it down :)
