If this story was a house it would have instant 'curb appeal'. The first scene captivates the reader with its poignancy. The plot twist that follows, allows humour to make one of its many appearances. This is a complex book but it's easy to read and doesn't suffer from slow pacing that is common in many women's fiction stories.

Kate has suffered a terrible loss but she doesn't wallow in her misfortune and manages to pick up her life again with help of Sarah and Andy her two best friends. Sarah has a story of her own to tell; in many ways it is more tragic than Kate's. Sarah is a speak first, think later character and this makes her appear brash but she is loyal and courageous and invaluable to the story, for her no nonsense take on life. Andy is the big brother figure, in this interesting triangle of friendship. Recovering from his own personal torment he is the perfect friend without benefits for Kate but maybe something more for Sarah?

The characters are realistic and imaginable and the trials and tribulations they face are easy to relate to. The plot is varied and unpredictable even when Kate meets Tim the celebrity, they don't follow the expected clichéd path which is refreshing.

Be prepared for intrigue and action alongside the romance and humour, you're in for a treat with this captivating story.

I received a copy of this book from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
