She gave up on romance years ago. He’s going through the motions. Their lives change forever when he makes contact out of the blue.

With her daughter leaving the nest, Michelle Cameron would rather spend her time with good friends, a glass of fizzy and a box set, than with another idiot bloke chipping away at her self-esteem. But when childhood friend Daniel Helmsley gets back in touch, the years roll away on a tide of laughter and friendship, which soon gives way to another roller coaster of love, excitement and panic. Can Michelle let herself trust again? What if Dan is just another idiot bloke, disillusioned with the present and nostalgic for the past?

 

 

My review

This book is a sequel, but I did not have the feeling that I missed out on something. It’s pretty clear that Michelle had some history, but this book can be read as a stand alone. The author gives you the right amount of information to enable you to pick up right away.

One this is for sure : there is a lot going on in this story. It’s about family, lost love, friendship and battling against ghosts from the past. Everybody needs and wants love, don’t they, but at what price? You don’t want to be taken for a fool and you can only live a good life if you are in a situation where you can thrive.

It was a good story and I liked the funny bits, but I sometimes had the feeling it got a bit snowed under and you were distracted by details that, in my opnion, did not really add anything to the core. 3 stars.

Thank you, Amanda Paull and RachelsRandomResources.
