BOOK REVIEW A YEAR AND A DAY BY ISABELLE BROOM

Welcome to Prague , a city where time  stands still 

For Megan ,a winter escape to Prague with her friend Ollie is a chance to find some inspiration for her upcoming photography exhibition . But she’s determined to keep their friendship from becoming anything  more . Because if Megan let’s Ollie into her past , she risks losing everything and she won’t let that happen again …

For  Hope , the trip is a story’s treat from Charlie ,her new partner . But she’s struggling to enjoy the beauty of the city when she knows how angry her daughter is back home . And that it’s all he’d fault …

For Sophie , Prague has always been a magical place . This time she can’t stop counting down the moments until her boyfriend robin joins her . But in historic Prague you can never escape the past ….
Firstly a huge thank you to Sarah at penguin for sending me a proof copy . I was so excited to receive this especially after devouring  Isabelle’s debut novel my map of you earlier in the year .

Well as soon as i finished this tonight I tweeted her and said you have done it again !

This book is amazingly beautiful and leaves you with a warm glow

I couldn’t put it down and whilst reading I was there in Prague ,a place I’ve never really thought about … I now want to visit…

Isabelle’s writing is cleverly descriptive and set the atmosphere of a cold winter break but fuelled with warmth from love and friendship

The charactars each bring so much and all enjoyable to read about . There isn’t a dull moment in this book 

My favourite parts were of Megan and Ollie and I fell for Ollie quite hard! Their friendship /relationship threatens to warm even the coldest of hearts this winter .

Sophie was a mystery from day one and no spoilers but I did guess her dilemma ..but nevertheless upon its reveal it’s still heartbreaking to read.

Hope is starting a new chapter in which she’s upset those dearest to her but has she made the right choice . I could identify with her as a mum as you can lose your identity .

Prague offers so much to each of these women and they stumble into each other’s lives …

A heartwarming tale set in beautiful location full of love humour sadness and hope .

Hope for new beginnings .. the future …answers 

If you haven’t discovered Isabelle’s writing you are in for a treat ..she’s one of my favourites easily . She certainly knows how to write a swoon worthy book boyfriend ! 


Published 17th November and with its beautiful front cover I expect to see it whizzing off the shelves .
