Effie’s not perfect. Neither is Theo. But together, they’re pretty close.
Matilda ‘Effie’ Heaton has always felt like she’s swimming against the tide. Everyone around her has life sorted, but Effie’s living with her parents and crying into a wine bottle at night. The only thing she loves is her job at a bookshop, where she can lose herself in other people’s stories.
But then she meets Theo, who knows only too well that life isn’t something to take for granted.
Because Theo has a life-changing secret, and as Effie starts to realise that she’s falling in love instead of falling apart, fate steps in and deals her a new hand. And this time, the stakes are high.
Firstly a big thank you to Avon for approving my request to read on netgalley.
This is a debut that has become one of my favourite reads of the year. This is everything!
Beautiful,life affirming,funny and relatable.
I love Effie who has lost her way somewhat in life and finds a new path with the help of Theo. I could see myself in her in so many ways.
Sweet and romantic while also sad and hard to read in some places.
She rediscovers her love of life and most importantly herself which we all need to do .
A love story with a difference .it is also so much deeper than a love story
If you enjoy authors such as Jojo moyes and Roxie cooper then i highly recommend this.
I wish Hannah every success with this book and i cant wait to see what she writes next.
