Amazon links: Kindle or Hardcover

From the first book that I read of Jo-Jo Moyes I fell in love with her characters and style of writing.  I was so excited to be given a preview copy of this book and put off reading it, not because I knew she would disappoint, but because I knew I wouldn't be able to put it down and I wanted to save it. 

Once again I was so not disappointed.  The story is well written and easy to follow, the characters extract your sympathy and are just like friends and neighbours.  I have personal experience of the two different worlds that are told in this books and they are described just perfectly and so true to life. 

I absolutely loved it, couldn't put it down and so didn't want the story to end, as I knew I wouldn't.  This is another must read which needs to go to the top of anyone's pile.

I'd like to thank Lisa for reviewing this book for me from her own copy.
