Many thanks to Victoria Joss and publisher Aria for my spot on this Blog Tour.
4 strangers on different journeys and a glimpse into their lives for one day was what this novel was all about. Caro ,a teacher, had discovered a powerful truth. Cammy was going to propose to a not-so-kind woman Lila. Bernadette was about to leave a boor of a man.
Having read many of Shari Low’s books, this story too brought the heart back into the prose. I loved the warmth that certain characters induced into the story. Each one touched me in different ways. A deft hand by the author made their lives intersect, and the story changed its direction.
Shari’s writing is always a pleasure to read as emotions are felt almost from the beginning. In this book too, there was an innocence in the way certain characters were depicted. I love to hate my characters too, I take almost a guilty pleasure in it. Lila evoked that in me almost from the get-go. The beginning took some time for me to connect to the characters, but I settled down once I got to know them.
I loved how the author could weave dreams and realities into a bond and beguile strangers to friends with the turn of a page. Humor, happiness, sadness and betrayal all were layered into the plot.
A skilfully written story with intertwining subplots showing different aspects of life and human psyche. A sweet read, indeed!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
Shari Low is the No1 best-selling author of over 20 novels, including One Day In Winter, A Life Without You, The Story Of Our Life, With Or Without You, Another Day In Winter and her latest release, This is Me.
And because she likes to over-share toe-curling moments and hapless disasters, she is also the shameless mother behind a collection of parenthood memories called Because Mummy Said So.
Once upon a time she met a guy, got engaged after a week, and twenty-something years later she lives near Glasgow with her husband, a labradoodle, and two teenagers who think she’s fairly embarrassing except when they need a lift.
Caro set off on a quest to find out if her relationship with her father had been based on a lifetime of lies.
Lila decided today would be the day that she told her lover’s wife of their secret affair.
Cammy was on the way to pick up the ring for the surprise proposal to the woman he loved.
And Bernadette vowed that this was the day she would walk away from her controlling husband of 30 years and never look back.
One day, four lives on a collision course with destiny…
