Fantastic and fun xx,
This review is from: A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger (Paperback)
Charley Lambert never has a spare moment - she is constantly on the go with an important job, has a health and fitness regime, and has spent her time creating the perfect life. Then she breaks her leg in three places and that's only the start of bad things...She watches her boss propose to someone else and as she is recovering from her injury, she has to hand over her beloved job to her awful deputy. Desperate for something to do, Charley sets up First Date Aid in order to help internet daters connect with each other and hopefully find love. When one of Charley's clients asks her to start e-mailing William on her behalf, she discovers a lot about herself, and finds herself falling in love...
What can I say? This book was amazing! I started it in the morning and by the afternoon I had completed it. I couldn't put it down, even though it is easy paced I raced through the book because I was so engaged and involved with what was happening. The story had me laughing throughout, at one point I was crying with laughter!
The characters are fantastically written. Charley is instantly likeable, I warmed to her straight away and loved reading about everything she got up to! Charley is the type of person that I would love to have as a best friend - her personality shone out through the pages and I felt as though I was there watching the scenes happen in front of me. Another character I particularly liked was Sam, Charley's flatmate. The friendship between them was brilliant and I always enjoyed the scenes where they both featured!
The correspondence between Charley and William was BEAUTIFUL! I got butterflies in my stomach just from reading it, and I genuinely felt Charley's excitement every time a new email came through. I don't want to spoil it but I urge anyone reading this to buy a copy, you won't regret it!
A Passionate Love Affair With A Total Stranger is so very entertaining - it is hilarious, it is fun, there is plenty of romance and great friendships. I thoroughly enjoyed having the pleasure of being able to sit down and devour this fabulous book - and I wish everyone could read it because it will make you smile, touch your heart, and put so much fun and happiness into reading. An absolutely fantastic novel.
