Evie’s Little Black Book – Hannah Pearl

Is hunting down every man you’ve kissed the answer to finding Mr Right?

When Evie is invited to the wedding of the guy she’d fancied throughout her teens, it’s the final straw. What’s wrong with her and why can’t she keep a man?
In between consoling herself with ice cream and chocolate, and sobbing her heart out to her cousin Chamaine, Evie has a brainwave – and it all centres around her ‘little black book’ (well, more floral patterned notebook really) – which contains the details of every man she’s ever kissed or dated. Perhaps the cure for her disastrous love life has been nestled within its pages all along …
Does Evie’s little black book really hold the answers, or will she learn that exes are exes for a reason?

 

 

My review

Sometimes you have to go back in order to be able to go forward …

First of all I absolutely adored the cover. It’s playful and fun but behind this cover there are a lot of other things going on.

‘It’s not you, It’s me’, is what you often here when relationships come to an end, but sometimes it makes you wonder. That’s the perfect time to take a closer look and get yourself the answers you need. Is there a happy ever after for you or are you destined to spend your life alone?

Come and join Evie on a trip through her little (not so) black book. If you ask yourself the same questions, maybe you should follow her example.

A lovely, funny and fluently written story with a deeper meaning. Good friends are forever even if you did not always treat them right. 5 stars.

Thank you, Hannah Pearl and Ruby Fiction
