Blurb; Amelia might have met The One. But is she twenty years too late?
After her husband left her out of the blue, the only relationship 48-year-old Amelia Simpson has enjoyed recently is with Nutella and Pinot Grigio. While her 8-year-old twin boys, Jasper and Rupert, keep her busy, Amelia dreams of a life more than washing muddy rugby kits and weekly chats with best friends Sian and Jamie.
Amelia needs some magic back in her life – but magic seems in short supply in her small Welsh town. So when she finds the phone number that was given to her twenty years ago by a handsome stranger in New York, Amelia wonders whether he might be The One That Got Away. But when Sian takes matters into her own hands, launching a worldwide hunt to find the handsome stranger Amelia met outside Tiffany’s two decades ago, Amelia finds herself on a flight to the Big Apple to reconnect with her ‘Perfect Patrick’. But as the two explore the sights of NYC, has Amelia reconnected with The One? Or will she discover that the sparkle she was missing is actually closer to home?
My Review; What a brilliant read. Starts off with Amelia being cheated on and a divorce. She has twins boys. Middle aged. Works in a bookshop. She trys online dating. That doesn’t work. But then she finds herself reminiscing about the past specifically a man from her past.. but surely its too late to go back there after all these years?
I loved every page. Devoured it. Had me laughing out loud in parts. A funny and uplifting romance. A new start. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. A perfect chick-lit/romance read. Really enjoyed it.
