However, this is not just a love-story but also, and perhaps more importantly, a story of the excitement and pitfalls associated with the prospect and build up of love. Unfailing friendships combined with a demonstration of genuine community spirit are all set within the wonderful backdrop of the Shetland Islands and this detail cleverly enhances the heart warming tone. A gentle page-turner; once you have started reading you won't stop and I for one (on the back of Valente's descriptive talents) intend to visit the Shetland Islands...sooner rather than later.
He is a very complex written character, it was quite a long story but by the end I didnt feel like I knew him all that well. He didnt share a lot and only a small part was written from his perspective. I would have preferred to have had some more, but I did love the character of Jo so it wasnt that noticable.
At the end of the story I have to say I thought more time had passed. The love story angle seemed quite slow and even though it was obvious it went at a nice pace. I don't mean slow as in "come on hurry up" but it paced through nicely. The characters got to know each other etc before realising their feelings and I enjoyed reading their teasing of each other. It felt realistic. Me and my husband tease each other the same way and it was easily relatable.
It was a nice easy and quite lighthearted read. I really enjoyed this and even though I did get this as a freebie, I would pay for more books from this author in the future.
One of my best books this year!
I never got bored of reading this book and thats not bad for a bloke to say!
plus it was free!
"Well done frankie"
