Amy Piper is a loser. She’s lost her confidence, her mojo and her way.

But one thing she has never lost is her total love for her thirteen-year-old son Joey, and for his sake she knows it’s time for a change. But first she has to be brave enough to leave the house…

What she needs are friends and an adventure. And when she joins a running group of women who call themselves The Larks, she finds both. Not to mention their inspiring (and rather handsome) coach, Nathan.

Once upon a time Amy was a winner – at life, at sport and in love. Now, with every ounce of strength she has left, she is determined to reclaim the life she had, for herself and for Joey.

And who knows, she might just be a winner again – at life, sport, and love, if she looks in the right places…


Uplifting, funny and unforgettable, Beth Moran returns with a joyous tale of friendship, love and facing your fears.

A Wonderful, Upbeat Read!      stars 4


Such a positive story! A fabulous read and especially for everyone who has struggled, or is currently struggling, with life.

Amy has problems in her life – she wrestles her way through each day but has managed to stay on almost top of it all for the sake of Joey, her thirteen year old son. Until one day she decides that she wants more; she wants to get back to the person she once was when she controlled her body and not the other way round. So she joins a running group – who could have known where that would lead?

A really sweet and touching read, this deals with normal people and the issues they have to face everyday, but in a wonderful, upbeat way. Everyone is just trying to do their best and it makes for very entertaining reading. Flawed characters, smooth writing and an excellent plot with some really low moments and plenty of highs made this a thoroughly enjoyable read, and definitely one I would recommend. A fabulous four shining stars!

My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

Author Bio


Beth Moran

I spent my childhood in a small market town in Nottinghamshire, reading, roller-booting, baking disastrous cakes and spending hours on the phone to my best friend, despite us living a ten second’s walk from each other.

After studying Biochemistry at university, I worked in cancer research, then balanced teaching antenatal classes with raising my young family. It was fantastic job, but after 10 years of talking about childbirth and nappies, it was time to move on.

So, I decided to embark on a new adventure. By the time I’d tapped out the first chapter I had fallen in love with writing, and suddenly all those hours spent daydreaming made sense.

As well as writing novels, I’m trustee of Free Range Chicks, a fabulous network of women who share their love, hope, strength and joy with each other. You can find out more about us at

I live in a village on the outskirts of Robin Hood country, where I love to walk with my cocker spaniel, Murphy, and occasionally manage a run.
