… i’ll cry if I want to.
Oh boy, another birthday …
Karen could be excused for crying on her birthday, especially as it’s the first one since her husband got on a plane to the States and never came back. Then there’s the fact that her workmates were practically bribed to attend her birthday meal. But when a restaurant double booking leads to her sharing a table with single dad Elliot and his daughter, things start looking up.
As Karen gets to know Elliot she experiences feelings she thought she’d never have again. But is it enough? Or will the thing that destroyed Karen’s previous relationship also ruin things with Elliot?
A birthday … normally this should be a very happy day indeed full of celebrations and gifts. But sometimes it can also be a reminder of things you have lost and it makes you sad thinking about how it could have been.
When people organize a party, you feel a bit better because you see that you are not alone, but sometimes it’s only make believe.
Every cloud has a silver lining. Yes, that is probably true, but you don’t always feel like it is going to happen now as well.
You might have lost love, but you never know when Prince Charming will be coming your way. Be sure to open your heart for him and don’t think about things that you feel are bound to go wrong. Love will find you, but do not forget you have to make your own happiness.
This is another lovely story by this author. Romance can bring tears but smiles as well. I hope you will enjoy reading this book as much as I did. 4 stars.
Thank you, Hannah Pearl and Ruby Fiction.
