Shake It Up, Beverley: Unabridged edition

By Suzan Holder, Read by Emma Gregory

‘A romcom that speaks to me – a single woman in her forties who still has a rock-chick streak!’ Woman & Home

The perfect, laugh out loud read for fans of Milly Johnson, Cathy Bramley and Jill Mansell!

Beverley Wilson has always loved the Beatles but kissing a poster goodnight isn’t really an option when you’re a fifty-something mum of three. So when she decides it’s time to get back into the dating game, she turns to a dating agency for help.

But the long and winding road to real love is littered with dating disasters – the pantyhose pervert being the real low point and in Bev’s opinon it’s all too much. But meeting fellow Beatles fan Scott Smith changes everything…

This hilarious romantic comedy explores life, love and lonely hearts in the suburbs of Liverpool. Is Bev’s attempt to shake things up foolish…or the bravest thing she’s done?

Suzan is planning to reinstate the tour as the theatre world returns to normal.

‘Funny, moving, romantic and down to earth - this is a book that says the Beatles were right and sometimes all you need is love’David Quantick, screenwriter of the movie BOOK OF LOVE, starring Sam Claflin -
