You always remember your first love. Don't you? It began with four words. "I love your laugh." But that was 12 years ago. It really began the day Georgina was fired from The Worst Restaurant in Sheffield (TripAdvisor) and found The Worst Boyfriend in the World (Georgina's best friends) in bed with someone else. So when her new boss, Lucas McCarthy, turns out to be the boy who wrote those words to her all that time ago, it feels like the start of something. The only problem? He doesn't seem to remember Georgina at all.

Just didn’t have enough story! I’ve loved Mhairi other books and pre ordered this book because of that and looked forward to it. I did enjoyed it but the twist didn’t flow enough for the story, it just appeared, made sense but made you wondered that you missed a chunk. It was beautifully written and lots of humour but really lacked a good story. Was a bit of a disappointment ☹️

From the moment their eyes met across the room at a house party, Erin and Dom were meant to be. If only it could be so simple. Over the years, the highs and lows of life conspire to keep them apart. But a notebook can bring them together. On the blank pages of their love story, they write down everything they can't always say - the secrets, the hopes and the love. Falling in love is easy, but staying in love is where the story begins.

This book will have you in tears but it’s one of the most perfect books I’ve listened to for a long time.

I did enjoy this book but it dragged on and didn’t really give you a clear representation to what happened at the end. Needed the other persons point of view. Don’t want to spoil so cant really say more. A lot of negativity about Narrator but I thought she was good, especially being the author. I’m not going to get a book hangover from this though. I’ll easily move straight on to my next audio book.

Colm strolled into my life 15 years ago. If there's ever such a thing as love at first sight, that was it for us both. A few weeks later we married, celebrating with those who cared. This was going to be forever, the happy ever after...until it wasn't. We discovered a devastating truth, one that blew away our future. What would you do if your husband slept with another woman?

I really enjoyed this book. It was slightly spoiled by the rush from chapter to chapter by the narrator. Over all though it was a sad but also a feel good story, kept me entertained and wanting to listen to it as much as possible.

Lillian Linden is a liar. On the surface, she looks like a brave survivor of a plane crash. But she's been lying to her family, her friends, and the whole world since rescue helicopters scooped her and her fellow survivor, Dave Hall, off a deserted island in the South Pacific. Missing for almost two years, the castaways are thrust into the spotlight after their rescue, becoming media darlings overnight. But they can't tell the real story--so they lie.
