I have read and enjoyed Hilary's previous novels, Tangled Lives and Thursdays In The Park, so I was very much looking forward to her latest release. I love the cover of When You Walked Back Into My Life, it grabbed me instantly and the colours are beautiful.

Flora's relationship with Fin was fun and full of life and everything she wanted, but when Flora wanted to settle down and have children, Fin disappeared. Flora's life moved on and her life was filled with other people and other activities. When Fin suddenly reappears, flora is taken by surprise - he says he's a changed man, and he wants her back....

I really enjoyed this, it was lovely to be back and immersed in Hilary's writing. Hilary has a way of drawing you in, and When You Walked Back Into My Life does exactly that. It was easy to get into and to follow and I enjoyed that the words flowed easily and freely.

I really sympathised with Flora as a character, she was very well written and I could imagine her pain and upset at Fin's sudden disappearance. I know of I were in her situation I'd be devastated. So when he reappeared like Flora I was wary of him, but I really wanted her to find love again and to be happy so I was very much rooting for her throughout.

The side-stories were interesting to read about too, and I especially liked Dorothea. I don't want to spoil anything but there are a range of topics explored in this novel, some which will have you rooting for the characters, and other ones that take on a more serious tone and will have you thinking.

I really enjoyed this novel, and I'm looking forward to reading more from Hilary Boyd.

Thought I must give this book a go after enjoying Thursday's in the park so much but was a bit concerned that it would be predictable - it's not! In typical Hilary style this is a beautiful story of love and real life, the characters are all interesting with their own little stories. You can't help but keep turning the pages wanting to find out what happens to Goo. A truly lovely read!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, a little predictable but smashing characterisations. A reasonably light read, great for a holiday! Try it.

Such a disappointment. Flora is a weak, pathetic woman who takes back a man who ran out on her 3 years ago and moves him into her flat inside a week or so of meeting him again. It's a boring book with very little happening and the only got part happened in the last 20 pages. Would not recommend this at all and will not read another book from this author.

I really didn't enjoy this book at all. I found the characters to be poorly drawn and unconvincing, which made it difficult to care about them and their problems. It was fairly obvious from the beginning how the book was going to end. Disappointing and a waste of money for me.
