I sometimes like to read a romantic suspense as a change to my usual genres and I’m glad I chose this one to do so. I thought it was going to be your typical boy meets girl kind of story, but I was totally wrong. This book plays with the emotions and is quite heart-wrenching.
I did have some gripes though with this book, although I haven’t lowered my overall star rating of the book because of them. The first was Isla constantly referring to her mother as ‘mom’. Isla and her parents were British and as such, she would have referred to her mother as ‘mum’. The other thing that grated on me was the constant referral of the ‘tube’. As a Londoner, Isla would have talked about going on a train rather than the tube and referred to the London Underground map rather than a tube map. These are both minor things though and possibly not everyone would agree with me on the second point.
Overall, the storyline was original and absorbing and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Isla and Ben were just 16 when the Tsunami hit Phuket in 2004. Each of them thought the other had died.
10 years later Isla returns to write an article for her magazine and perhaps lay to rest some ghosts.
She meets up with Ben and can they rekindle their relationship? Do they still have feelings for each other? Hell yes, and this is a love story, too. But things are always complications. Ben has a girlfriend and Isla has boyfriend to name two.
Can they overcome all odds and have a future? You'll just have to read it to find out.
Ben meets Isla at The run up to Christmas 2004, they were 16 & a kiss was imminent, however the tsunami came & split them up. Isla was severely injured, she lost both parents, Ben lost his younger brother & his uncle, he wasn't physically injured but mentally was traumatised. Purely by chance Isla meets Ben in Bangkok & the love story gets back on track. They have amazing highs, some real downs but they are both helping each other getting over the trauma. Ultimately they get through the difficult times & love wins.
Becky Wicks managed to give the reader the images of Khao Lak that most can only dream about, the sun, sand & recovering infrastructure. Visiting the Police boat, the museum & all of the beauty that can recover from such devastation.
