For me, a betwixt and between kind of book: a step up from chick-lit but not weighty enough for literary fiction. I like that it takes gay characters and a woman with depression as 'normal', without making a thing of them, but there are no real breakout storylines or insights.

It's hard to believe that Annie should get herself into the situation she does, and one of the highlights is when she emerges as the ballsy character we expect her to be. By the end, female friendship reigns supreme - nice

I had high expectations for this book but it didn’t quite deliver. It was an interesting take on a love story and represented a wide range of LGBTQ characters and different personalities but no characters stood out for me and I felt like the narrative was lacking. It was also very difficult to get into and took me a few goes before I managed to stick with it! I’d be interested to see further offerings from this author as I did like her writing but this novel wasn’t one of my favourites.

Note : A

This is a love story, but a love story with twists – and one we don’t get to read about often.

This is a love story about Grace, Annie, and Violet. It’s a story about first time love – for all three characters – and how it doesn’t always end up quite as we expect it to be. Grace falls in love at first sight with a girl at a party. At the same time, lawyer Annie meets a successful man she thinks she could settle down with. And elsewhere, Violet, who rents Annie’s spare room, finds herself falling

Firstly, this isn’t necessarily the kind of book that I would normally read – I’m not really one for love stories – but I was drawn to this because of its LGBT+ characters and it seemed a little quirky which I liked.

I gave it 3 stars, ultimately, because I felt like there needed more going on for the characters to show themselves more. They weren’t lacking in depth, but I feel that perhaps I would have got more from them if their situations were varied more.

That is not to say I did not enjoy it,
