Rating: 3 Stars

Review: This is my second book that I have read by Lindsey Kelk and this is definitely a great book if you are looking for a light read sitting at the beach or on your porch or deck. The publisher labeled this as a romance, but I do think this story really falls more into contemporary fiction.

Ros has come back to London after three years. She temporarily needs to move back home with her parents, but instead they put her in a makeshift shed. She is lucky to find a job quickly, but it is far from her “dream job”. She quickly gets back together with an ex and she has an extremely close circle of friends.

This book felt very much like a coming of age story except this character is 32. She lacks confidence, she always compares herself to her more beautiful, smarter sister, and she falls into a similar pattern with her ex.

It was wonderful to watch Ros figure out what she wants out of life and take back control. On the downside, it was awfully long, it feels like 100 pages could have been cut from the book. At times, I felt it dragged. However, ultimately I really enjoyed getting to know Ros, and her family and friends.

Thank you NetGalley and HarperCollins for an Advanced Reader’s Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

You really can say I am an obsessed reader as I read 200-300 books per year. I love Literary Fiction, Memoirs (I don't really care what kind), Mysteries and Thrillers. Once in awhile I will thrown in some YA and Romance. When I am not reading, I am a Sales Engineer for a software company, and I take care of my three cats with my husband. I love music, which my college degree is in. Looking forward to share my thoughts on all things reading.
