Tammy gets the shock of her life when she answers her door for standing there is her ex-fiance Alvin, someone she had not seen or spoken to since he'd left to go to Australia a couple of years before.
He admits to Tammy that he's still in love with her and would like to get back together with her. But first he reminds her of the pre-parental plan that they had compiled of things that they were going to do before they had kids and suggests that they plan these activities now to see if they are still compatible after all of this time apart.
What follows is a rollercoaster of events that bring emotions to the surface, good and bad, so will it bring them closer together or will they realise that they are better off apart?
I'd been looking forward to reading this book ever since I knew Shirley had finished writing it and I wasn't disappointed. It had everything you'd expect from a story about a modern relationship, it had emotional highs and lows as well as interesting and likeable characters in Tammy and Alvin. Although I enjoyed her debut novel Looking for Leon, I would say that this was her best novel to date so am already looking forward to her next book which should be released next year.
I'd like to thank Shirley and Poolbeg for sending me a copy of this book to review. Fancy a copy of Can We Start Again? for your holiday reading, why not head to Amazon to order your copy today.
