Review of ‘Surfing in Stilettos’

Posted on Updated on

Fifty is not the end of life—or the end of fun—or so Amanda Wilson thinks when she and her grumpy husband, Phil, leave home and head for a vacation in France in their camper van. What should be an idyllic sojourn turns sour when their left-at-home son, Tom, starts destroying their house, a piece at a time; the camper van breaks down, stranding them in a small French town babysitting with a geriatric dog; and, Amanda’s newfound friend, Bibi, in an effort to punish her philandering husband, puts Amanda in jeopardy.

Surfing in Stilettos by Carol E. Wyer is a hilarious look at life after fifty; as only a master storyteller could tell it. You’ll find yourself chuckling at Amanda’s adventures, and roaring with laughter at how she translates them in her blog postings, complete with comments from her fans from all over. Wyer has taken aging and put into a perspective that those of us over fifty can really relate to. On the other hand, you don’t have to be over fifty to like this book. Another five-star book from Carol E. Wyer!
