BOOK REVIEW ~ No Regrets by Tabitha Webb

* I was sent an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thank you HQ for this opportunity.*
 


 
Hey lovelies, welcome back!

They say that you’ll be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did, and for lifelong friends, Stella, Anna and Dixie this couldn’t be more true. They’ve all lived fulfilling lives – Stella had a dream career as a magazine editor and is now married with two children, Dixie married young and now lives the glamorous life of a bachelorette since her divorce, and Anna has spent her life finding the optimal partner, who she’s found in Rex, and is now trying for a baby. All three should be happy right? Wrong! Each feels that something is missing from their lives and when a series of opportunities present themselves the girls decide that it’s time for no more regrets…

No Regrets by Tabitha Webb is raunchy, comical and real, making it an upbeat read!

I enjoyed this far more than I thought I would, what with my go-to genre’s being YA Fiction or Fantasy, but I received an ARC at the Harper Collins Showcase in February and when they released the call for the blog tour I thought why not! 



This is such an easy read and I found myself speeding through. It's the perfect book to pick up for a holiday (admittedly non-existent holiday thanks to Covid-19).

Comprised of alternative chapters from all three pov’s, we experience everyone's story from the third person narrative which creates an omniscient feeling. Webb uses the varied pov to drive the plot forward, which captures your intrigue and keeps you turning the page. While I preferred some story-arc’s over others, each was entertaining and charming and were woven together effortlessly.

What I admired most was that the characters are flawed and do make mistakes, just as humans do, which makes them easier to connect with. They all emanate a warmth that instantly makes them loveable. Personally, Stella was my favourite - she is headstrong, independent and utterly hilarious!

The ending felt a little unstable as we had all the story-arc's wrapped up in one chapter which left me feeling a little dizzy. While this is an obvious choice for the ending, I'd have preferred to title the ending chapters as "Bitches" rather than a specific character to make it clear all three are merging together. Nevertheless, the ending is beautiful and leaves you feeling content.

If you're looking for a hot, sassy read then look no further!
