So today I have a lovely book review for you all 🙂 Anybody who knows me knows I can’t stop reading, and can literally spend hours and hours with a book so i’m going to make reviews a regular thing on the blog 🙂
So this is my latest read, “Welcome to my world ” by Miranda Dickinson.
“Working as a travel agent, the closest Harri comes to her dream destination of Venice is booking the trip for someone else, but everything changes when travel fanatic Alex drops in. With boyfriend Rob tied up with work, Harri is persuaded to help Alex in his quest for love. But in her attempts to help, Harri soon discovers a whole new set of problems. Now Harri is locked in a ladies loo cubicle at the village hall, drowning in her sorrows. Desperate to leave her life behind, will her dreams finally come true? Or will Harri’s leap of faith be her biggest mistake yet?”
So as the blurb says, the story starts with main character Harri hiding in the loo, and explains events leading up to this in a series of flashbacks, with the story occasional skipping back to Harri hiding in the loo. I’ve had this story on my bookshelf for a while, the first time I tried to read it i got distracted and forgot about it. I did find this quite hard to get into with the switch between past and present, but when I’d gotten over that and figured out who all the characters were I quite enjoyed it. It’s nothing too extraordinary, a typical romantic novel and the endings quite predictable but enjoyable as a light hearted read and I did finish most of it in a three hour sitting. Fan’s of Jill Mansell and Sophie Kinsella will enjoy this.
What did you think? Any recommendation on books you love?
