Thank you to Lily at HQ for my copy and place on the tour. All opinions are honest and my own.
‘We’ll meet again at St Pancras station, a year from today. If we’re meant to be together, we’ll both be there. If we’re not, it was never meant to be . . .’
Phoebe and Sam meet by chance at St Pancras station. Heading in opposite directions, both seeking their own adventures, meeting the love of their lives wasn’t part of the plan. So they make a promise: to meet again in the same place in twelve months’ time if they still want to be together.
But is life ever as simple as that?
This is a story of what-ifs and maybes – and how one decision can change your life forever…
For those that don’t know me very well I will let you in to a secret. I am a self confessed hopeless romantic, lover of happy ever afters, binger of cheesy hallmark movies and a complete Disney Head. This may come as a shock as I normally review psychological thrillers and name Stephen King as the author who really stoked my passion for reading.
I knew I would be in for a treat with this book as soon as I read the blurb, little did I know I would also get lots of free holidays ! I mean it seriously this book takes you on holiday! I’ve been to Paris, Florence, Rome and the Isle of Mull all from the comfort of my sofa. The descriptions of the scenery, the food, the hosts will make you want to pack your suitcase and grab your passport.
This is very much a will they won’t they read and written from both perspectives in alternate chapters you follow their adventures as they spend a year apart. Sam searching for the father who walked out on him and his mother years ago and Phoebe on the search for herself.
This is pure comfort reading , it wraps its arms around you in a hug and doesn’t let go. It’s like an old friend who turns up at your door and you didn’t realise how much you had missed them. This is a story that will warm your heart and nourish your soul.
In the words of Phoebe “Maybe in the end we are all just stories waiting to be shared.”
