Inspirational story of making a fresh start – The Amsterdam Affair by Kate Frost – beautiful read!

A new start, a chance encounter, a Christmas to remember. Will Iris’s new year be happy ever after? 

When Iris Greene’s boyfriend surprises her with a romantic dinner at their favourite restaurant, she’s expecting a proposal, not a move to another country. 

But Amsterdam proves to be the change she never knew she needed, and a surprise encounter with a local actor leads Iris to new friends and the rediscovery of a long lost passion. While Iris thrives in a city filled with festivity, her boyfriend struggles, and her heart is torn in two. 

As snow falls and secrets are revealed, Iris must decide her future. Will she be brave enough to start over and take a chance on love? 

My Review:

This is a delightful, contemporary romance 
Where unexpected changes give a new chance.
When her boyfriend of six years makes a dinner date
Iris is expecting a proposal, not a total change of fate!

He's got a new job in Amsterdam
And he says they're going there as fast as they can.
No discussion, no choices, just pack up and go
She's not so sure and it all has her feeling low.

Their new home is lovely, and the city a dream
She feels inspired to create art again it would seem.
With new friends, new places and more fun, too
She loves it all, maybe her dreams will come true?

But fate has more surprises in store
As Will no longer seems his job to adore.
Should she follow Will or take a chance
On the possibilities in Amsterdam for new romance?

This is a story of being brave and starting anew
Of making the most of opportunities in life for you
Sometimes what seems like a difficult choice at the start
Can lead to great happiness if you follow your heart.

For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.
