What Next? by Shari Low

What Next? book cover

Val and Josie devised a bucket list of American adventures but cancer prevented them enjoying their final trip. Now Val persuades her niece Cathy and her close knit group of friends to undertake the trip with her.
What Next? is the third book to feature Cathy and her friends. I have not read the previous two and this book worked perfectly well as a standalone novel.
Cathy is moving to the USA with her husband but is reluctant to leave her home. She is persuaded to join her aunt Val on a bucket list trip which alllow her the chance to delay the move. Her friends and family are also facing dilemmas in their lives and the trip offers them an opportunity for some soul searching.
Val’s character is bold and brash, loud and loveable. But she also has such sadness about the death of her friend. Carol and Jess are both feeling that their relationships are failing. The book is written from each of their first person perspectives so we learn about their emotions and actions.
There is plenty of comedy throughout the book and there were some wonderful turns of phrases used by the author. The characters’ interactions and dialogue added humour as well. However, there are some serious emotional notes to the plot and characters as well. Val bitterly regrets being unable to complete her bucket list with her late best friend. Relationships cause tension and the characters need to find resolutions in order to find happiness.
What Next? is a light hearted novel about making the most out of life’s chances.
