Michele A’Court’s new book is DELIGHTFUL! A warm hug of a read, like sitting down with your girl friends and chatting over a glass of wine.

I have wanted to write this book for years, so to find someone has done it better and deeper than I ever could have is a qualified pleasure. Great bedtime reading: easy to race through and easy to warm to. It's about people falling in love, of course it's easy to warm to!

This a super cute fun book. There probably won't be a review on my blog, but if you are looking for a fun read about people recalling how they ended up together this is definitely the read for you.

– How We Met is ice cream for the soul. –
