My Review:

This starts with a romantic proposal in New York, followed by the journey to the wedding where the bride is suddenly unsure about getting married. She never dreamt what would happen when she tried to talk to her groom . . . .

This is an emotive story, where choices made are reconsidered because of events. It explores guilt, dreams, ideals, romance, secrets and, of course, love. I’m really struggling to review it without giving spoilers, so I’ll keep this relatively short . . . . It is a story packed with great characters, a plot filled with dilemmas as well as twists and turns. It is one where you are unsure just how things will work out until the end. It is an engaging read that I thoroughly enjoyed and have no hesitation in recommending,

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

 

Synopsis:

From the SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author of Where the Light Gets in and All I Ever Wanted

‘Real, heart-breaking – I loved it’ Katie Fforde

What happens when ‘I do’ turns into ‘I don’t know’?

Jeannie always wanted to fall in love, and now she’s finally got the whirlwind romance she dreamed of. Dan’s gorgeous, he’s a successful young vet, and he flew her to New York and proposed on Brooklyn Bridge. Jeannie has to remind herself this is actually her life. It seems too perfect, too magical, to be real. Yet it is.

But now she’s on her way to the wedding she can’t shake off the tight sensation crushing her chest. Is it just nerves . . . or is this all happening a bit too fast?

Jeannie has one last chance to shout, ‘Stop!’ But just as she grabs it, a twist of fate throws everything she knows into the air like confetti. What Jeannie learns about Dan, about her own heart, and about the power of love itself, will change her world for ever . . .
