Abi’s heartbroken after her boyfriend, Joseph, leaves her. When she finds his bucket list of things to do, she decides to complete the tasks to win him back. Trouble is they are not really the sort of things she likes doing – such as mountain bike riding, abseiling, camping out at a music festival. But with her friend Sian egging her on and cycling enthusiast Ben along for the ride, it seems that Abi may just find her mojo again as she pieces her heart back together again. This is certainly a cute, feel-good read about a girl pushing herself out of her comfort zone, which will no doubt encourage you to consider your own bucket list.
The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart, by Anna Bell, is about a girl who's willing to go to great lengths to win back her man. The synopsis says: "Abi's barely left her bed since Joseph, the love of her life, dumped her, saying they were incompatible. When Joseph leaves a box of her possessions on her doorstep, she finds a bucket list of ten things she never knew he wanted to do. What better way to win him back than by completing the list, and proving they're a perfect match? But there's just one problem - or rather, ten. Abi's not exactly the outdoorsy type, and she's absolutely terrified of heights - not ideal for a list that includes climbing a mountain, cycling around the Isle of Wight and, last but not least, abseiling down the tallest building in town. Completing the list is going to need all Abi's courage - and a lot of help from her friends. But as she heals her broken heart one task at a time, the newly confident Abi might just have a surprise in store ..." The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart is out in March 2016.
