Another read for the commute
on 30 January 2016
I picked up Reasons Not to Fall in Love because I absolutely adored Kirsty Moseley’s The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window. It seems weird really doesn’t it? We liked one book so we pick up another by the same author hoping for the same magic to be recreated. You would think that this can only end in one of two ways: we either love it or we hate it. Wrong. There is a sneaky third option of jut liking a book. That is how I felt about Reasons Not to Fall in Love.
The story is about Bronwyn Reynolds, a small town waitress who has a crap life. She is used by her husband, she works hard so she can look after their child and she has lost her sense of self. The story is about her finding out that there is someone special under her waitressing pinafore and it takes the love of a man to help her realise that.
At 92 pages long you have to be impressed by the heart warming story that Moseley has managed to cram in. You don’t feel cheated by the characters, or by the story. It is a story well told and is another that I like to think of as a commute read – one for the commute to and from work. I liked it but it didn’t blow me away.
Reasons Not to Fall in Love by Kirsty Moseley is available now.
