A delightful, entertaining and funny rural romance from Karly Lane, the bestselling author with over 550,000 books sold, this is your chance to snap up a copy of For Once In My Life.

Jenny thought she was done with men and relationships . . . her kids, however, had other plans.

Jenny Hayward cannot believe that she’s fifty years old and a grandmother with adult children!

When did that happen? Not that long ago her three daughters were in school and Jenny was
following her dream of becoming a nurse.

In the two years since her husband walked out, Jenny has been absorbed in her family and work.

But then her daughters and her best friend secretly set her up with a profile on a dating app and she is unexpectedly thrust into the world of dating.

However, as the dates keep coming, Jenny wonders how the people she loves the most in the world have managed so impressively to pick the wrong men for her.

The annoying barman watching on is much more enjoyable company. The barman who is more than a decade younger than her. Yet Nick doesn’t seem to notice her age at all . . . Is Jenny’s next date the date of her dreams?
