ABOUT THE BOOK
ONE CANCELLED WEDDING
When the day finally comes for Annie to marry Alexander, the last thing she expects is to be left standing at the altar. She was so sure he was Mr Right. Now, she has no idea how she could have got it so wrong.
ONE UNEXPECTED ENCOUNTER
After a chance meeting with Patrick, an old friend who reminds her of who she used to be, Annie takes a vow of her own: she’ll say yes to every opportunity that comes her way from now on.
ONE SPARE TICKET FOR THE HONEYMOON
Could a spontaneous trip with Patrick be the way to mend Annie’s heart? She’s about to find out as she embarks on her honeymoon – with a man who’s not her husband…
Annie and Alexander lived together, although the house was his, and after years of seeing everyone else get married, it was now time for them. Everything was perfect, she had lost weight, the bridal gown fit her beautifully, and all their family and friends were going to celebrate them getting married. Unfortunately, Alexander had decided differently and been the coward he was he had phoned the wedding planner to tell her the wedding was off! It was a day Annie would never forget, but for the wrong reasons.
When Annie bumped into an old friend from camp they both went to for acting when they were teenagers, he made her feel like the girl she used to be, with his tales from the past. Patrick put the sparkle back in her. So when her ex-future-in-laws offered her the luxury honeymoon three week trip to Australia, fully paid, she took it and drunkenly invited Patrick along too.
The story is told by Annie and how she sees situations. I liked how the author showed all her different sides. It had been a matter of meeting Annie on a high followed by the worst time in her life, so not the true every day Annie. There were stages that she progressed through in the story, not always making the right choices.
I liked that the story wasn’t all sugar and spice with someone sweeping her off her feet. It was a story of other people having pasts that have changed them. It is a story of giving and taking, not just leaning on someone, and how they make it better. I don’t think of this as a love story but a life story.
Many thanks to the publisher and Net Galley for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
