Beautiful

This is one of those stories I’ll remember fir a long time. Made me cry in so many places. Minnie COOPER is a remarkable lovable character who has so much growth in this story and never compromises her values to accomplish that growth. I loved it. And I loved Quinn too.

DNF

I gave up in the end! Minnie seemed so negative and miserable it was difficult to listen to. The narrator didn’t help as she said everything in a down beat manner. The story just wasn’t interesting enough and I gave up with a few hours left to listen because I didn’t want to listen to the narrator anymore and I didn’t care what happened to the characters.

Cliche

I love a rom-com, but this is eye rolling cliche! An easy listen but didn’t capture me.

Another perfect book!

Sophie Cousens has done it again! Another book that made me laugh out loud and that can warm even the coldest of hearts.
A beautiful and clumsy love story, full of characters you can really relate too.
The perfect book for a cold winters day ❤️❤️

What a cracker

This is a book I wish I could give more than 5 stars to. It absolutely captivated me from the off. I reluctantly put it down for sleep and picked it up straight away the next day eager to further immerse myself in Minnie and Quinns life. Not the usual chocolate box romance, this story had a serious mental health side story. The book had the perfect the balance of serious, humour and romance. I can tell this is one I'm going to be gushing about for ages! Great narration really drew me in. Hannah has a very easy to listen to voice

Loved the humour 😂

This was such a fun book to listen to!! It's not a steamy book at all but listening to the relationship develop between the main characters kept me gripped the entire time. And boy did I laugh!

Minnie Cooper (yes that's her name 😂) and Quinn Hamilton were both born a minute apart on New Years Day. Their mothers actually shared a hospital room.

Fast forward 30 years and the pair finally meet in person. But when Minnie realises who Quinn is, she's not exactly over the moon, because all her life she's believed that her 'bad luck birthday curse' is due to the fact that Quinn stole her name!!

This book bounces between the present and past but it's really easy to follow. I absolutely loved hearing about the past because it really added to the depth of the characters' personalities.

And the side characters were so well fleshed out too. Especially Leila, Minnie's bestie. OMG she's hilarious 😂

Seriously, this is a book you need to read or listen to if you're in the mood for a light hearted love story. If you're a fan of Bridget Jones then this book should be at the top of your TBR list!!

It's been a while since I read a book set in England and I really enjoyed it 🤎

I can't wait to dive in to more from this author 😍
