Prague is the star of the show that’s for sure as the landmarks, streets, sights and sounds are lovingly recreated on the page.This is a very visual read where I could clearly see everything as described and more despite never having been. Oh the magic of the Christmas markets and the snippets of history surrounding the Old Clock Tower and Wenceslas Square was just a joy to read. I felt I was wandering and discovering the city as the characters were.
The story does have its fair share of moments where you just have to take time to think about things – your life, your partner and where you are headed. Megan , Sophie and Hope come from three very different backstories and backgrounds but when the threads of their stories are woven together, it’s like the paper threads of those star decorations on the Xmas tree there. And the overall picture shines over the city and illuminates it like magic.
Just remember however some useful advice for your own journey there – the FUNicular is not FUN apparently and despite the fairytale feel of the place there are several special moments which are strictly NFF – Not for Facebook – but rather to spend and experience in the moment. A lesson for us all when you think about it.
There’s so much to discover in this novel that I don’t want to say more – other than to recommend you read it. I’ve not read a book like this in a while that’s made me smile so much and feel so good inside. And I really really really need to go to Prague asap!
Megan is on a photography trip, and is accompanied by good friend, Ollie. Hope and new partner, Charlie, are on a winter break. And Sophie is visiting Prague alone, but expects her boyfriend to join her very soon. The characters meet in the hotel bar, and friendships develop.
Romance is a big theme in this story, but it's not just a light and frothy read. The characters have issues to deal with, and these are revealed over the course of the story. One of the plot lines has a melancholy undertone running through it, but on another note, this plot line is the one that keeps the reader intigued.
Overall - an engaging story about love and relationships. The ending is perfect.
Three couples, all with different stories but all searching for something, even if they re not aware of it.
This book made me laugh, cry, gave me shivers and I even felt my heart breaking for them. It was full of so many emotions and they were just so powerful, I can't quite believe it.
This book gave me the best thing it, it opened my eyes and certainly helped to put my life in perspective and we all need that sometimes.
I undoubtedly recommend it!
