The perfect final chapter of a brilliant series!
1 June 2019
Now if you’ve never read an ‘I heart.....’ book then I’m telling you now I cannot not give you spoilers. This story is the last chapter in the series. It is book 8 and the last in the series which has covered a span of 10 years so I will try not to give spoilers but due to generally progression through the series I can’t keep some things a secret. So if you don’t want to know anything about the series please turn away now. But for those of you tuned in and ready to find out what happens next then here goes.....
Angela wakes up in bed at her parents home in England. No Alex, no Alice and a strange sort of feeling in her gut. An immediate ‘Oh Angela’ sprang to mind and a crushing feeling in the pit of my stomach.
Luckily, Kelk flashes back to a year ago and the story that gets us to this moment; giving us a whole novel to murmur a lot more, ‘Oh Angela’s’.
Angela has finished her maternity leave and is back off to work for old nemesis, Cici. On top of this she gets accosted by the classy MOB (Mother’s of Brooklyn) and quickly finds trying to juggle motherhood, work and the general perils of life pretty intense. Teamed with a splash of FOMO when Jenny clicks with her new boss Paige, Angela agrees to an all expenses paid trip to Hawaii to spend some quality time with her best friends and a little rest and relaxation.
In true Angela Clark fashion, the trip does not go exactly as imagined. Jenny seems to be avoiding her, Alex is mad she’s gone away and Angela gets posed the opportunity of a lifetime from an unlikely source.
I received an ARC for ‘I Heart Hawaii’ from the lovely Lindsey Kelk and awesome people an Harper Collins UK. Having met Lindsey at a book signing and following the adventures of Angela for the past 10 years I was so excited to have been given this opportunity.
This book had more than a few laugh out loud moments (yes I did receive weird stares on the train home but I don’t care) and yet finished the series off perfectly. A story that ultimately thrives on relationships and how these develop and are maintained between partners, friends and families.
Angela, Jenny and the gang have been firm staples in my life for so long that I’m not sure what I’ll do now. However, they will forever live on my bookshelf in all their beautiful colour. Thank you Lindsey for creating the dream team and letting me live through Angela. This was a 5 star read and a series I would wholeheartedly recommend.
