Summary

Their love story started with goodbye....

The brand-new novel from The Sunday Times best-selling author Miranda Dickinson.

‘We’ll meet again at St Pancras station, a year from today. If we’re meant to be together, we’ll both be there. If we’re not, it was never meant to be....’

Phoebe and Sam meet by chance at St Pancras station. Heading in opposite directions, both seeking their own adventures, meeting the love of their lives wasn’t part of the plan. So they make a promise: to meet again in the same place in 12 months' time if they still want to be together.

But is life ever as simple as that?

This is a story of what-ifs and maybes - and how one decision can change your life forever....

Really didn’t enjoy this book

I love a romance and a bit of chick lit but this book just missed the mark at every level. The characters were two dimensional and self indulgent. The story dragged and there wasn’t enough character development for me to care what they were doing or how much they were tormented by the lost love of a person they’d met once, by chance, at a train station.

unpredictable, wonderful love story .

to just call it nice may bot seenm enough but this truly was a nicely written extremely well performed love story. I couldn't leave it for a moment... when i did i was racing back at the next possible moment to catch up on the journey. i was so invested in the characters and it portrayed well what fear can do to the mind. Loved it ❤

Fabulous Romance

What a gorgeous audiobook! My first by Miranda Dickinson, but definitely not my last!
This was wonderful story of love at first sight, and all the complications two people have when they weren’t expecting to full in love whilst waiting for their trains.
I loved the journeys Phoebe and Sam went on over the course of their year apart. Loved what Phoebe did in Paris and Italy. In fact I was quite envious of Phoebe’s adventures, and of the lovely friends she made. I wasn’t jealous of Sam’s adventure, it was a heartbreaking journey he took, a scary time of discovering family secrets and learning more about himself.
And the meeting at St. Pancras a year later? Well what a twist! I knew something was going to happen because there was still about a third left in the book, but I wasn’t expecting the different detours that Phoebe and Sam went on! I was shocked on a few occasions, I was disappointed by some of their decisions, but I always hopeful that they’d get together again, really hoping for a happy ending.
Phoebe and Sam and their friends became my friends as I listened. They were all so real, and I felt quite sad when I came to the end of the audiobook. I definitely think I’ll be listening to this again when I need an escape or a comfort listen.
Laura Kirman is already a favourite narrator, so it was a real pleasure to have her narrating with Joshua Manning. She brought Phoebe and the other characters to life perfectly. Joshua Manning was excellent as Sam and all the other characters, especially his honorary aunty Ailish on the Isle of Mull.
I highly recommend this audiobook if you enjoy contemporary romances.

Too far Fetched

The title should be The "Days" we meet again instead of Day cause they were too many coincidences happening. To me a coincidence happens once. Dragged out and knowing they were going to met couldn't wait til it happened. lost interest in the storyline halfway through.

Wonderful!

Absolutely loved listening to this wonderful story while I went on my daily walks. It made me feel like I was travelling with the characters. I got completely lost in their story and loved escaping with them. Beautifully written.

I struggled to finish the book.

I struggled to finish. I couldn't really feel like I was inside the character's mind because they felt so unrealistic. The writing is nice except from the part where the say kiss kiss in every conversation. As it's an audiobook, I couldn't skip this extra information and it felt annoying. Also, the 2main characters couldn't take any decisions unless somebody told them so. I'll would have liked to see more character in Phoebe and I'm sorry but Europe it's not just France and Italy. Travelling a year in Europe could have been such a great story.

"does what it says on the tin"

it has the story arc of chic lit with some beautiful description of Europe during Phoebe's travel which can be drawn out but add to the story.
you will enjoy it but it was missing that little something to make it a 5*.

you'll enjoy it as it's an easy listen
