Title: In Case You Missed It
Author: Lindsey Kelk
Publisher: HarperCollins UK, HarperFiction
This is a fun contemporary romcom staring 32 year old Rosalind ‘Ros’ Reynolds who is returning home after working for three years in Washington DC as a radio producer. She’s coming home with no job and is going to stay with her parents until she gets settled. That’s when the fun starts – right from the very beginning. Her parents are enjoying a renaissance in their romance and have got used to having their home to themselves so have built a garden shed that has been adapted to be home for Ros, complete with everything from her childhood bedroom!
She’s had to get herself a new phone and sends a group text to everyone in her Contacts to tell them she’s back in London and giving them her new phone number . . . . That’s when a job offer comes through, closely followed by a text from the man who broke her heart three years ago. Will this turn out to be a second chance romance or will fate have new plans for Ros? You’ll have to read it for yourself to find out.
This is a laugh out loud read, with Ros reconnecting with her long term friends only to discover that their lives have been moving on in different ways whilst she was abroad. Sometimes it is great to look back on your memories but it can also prevent your moving on with your life. This is about Ros exploring the past and moving on to her future. There are many hilarious events in the story which also has a fantastic range of secondary characters who all bring their personal quirks to the story and add to the humour. It is a fun read and great to escape into when you want to put a smile on your face!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
The hilarious and heartwarming new standalone novel from Sunday Times bestselling author Lindsey Kelk.
One missed chance in life…one second chance in love
When Ros comes home after three years away, she’s ready to pick up with life exactly where she left it. But her friends have moved on, her parents have rekindled their romance, and her bedroom is now a garden shed. All of a sudden, she’s swept up in nostalgia for the way things were.
Then her phone begins to ping, with messages from her old life. Including one number she thought she’d erased for good – the man who broke her heart. Is this her second chance at one big love? Sometimes we all want to see what we’ve been missing…
