What a ‘bruddy’ brilliant book!! Ms. Watson has done it again, given a book so full of love, laughter, and ridiculously loving characters. The warmth Sue Watson’s writing exudes literally lights up my day. Even a heart soaked in pain finds solace and a way to smile with this book.
“Death is not the greatest loss of life, the greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live”
Dan and Faye are in love; he proposes, she says no as she has to be there for her daughter Emma and granddaughter Rosie, and her degree in English literature. Dan moves to Australia. The break up. Fast forward one year, Faye has no responsibilities, she wants to be with Dan and rushes to Australia. But there is a shock waiting for her…
Sue Watson’s books are always about love and keeping an open heart. Her books make you fall in love, to understand the power of love and to heal. Faye is fabulous in her role, I could identify with her decisions, her pain, her guilt, and finally her heart. The other characters especially granddaughter Rosie was so cute that I longed to spend more time with them. The story has the first half in England with Dan in Faye’s life and second half in Australia with Faye in Dan’s life. Both parts show how life and love finds its own way back!!
Few dialogs which made me roar in laughter in the silence of midnight
She’d vajazzled a cougar onto my private parts, and I was shocked 2 very life like cougar eyes staring back at me when I looked down. Not as shocked as Dan who came face to face with the spectacle in the dark
Once I’d texted for a client asking her daughter to bring the epi pen without my glasses on. Within seconds the daughter called up, horrified. Apparently epi pen autocorrected and I’d asked if she could bring her mother an ‘epic penis’ because she couldn’t be without it!
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
My rating : 5 stars
Faye is in crisis. Dan is the man of her dreams. And he’s just asked her to marry him. But Faye’s been down the marriage road before.
Besides, even if she wanted to say yes, how could she move to the other side of the world? Because marrying Dan would mean living in Australia. Beautiful, warm and a gazillion miles from Faye’s daughter, Emma, a single mum with her own crazy little girl who both need Faye every single day.
Dan is offering Faye everything she ever wanted. So why does she feel like she’s about to lose it all?

Wish I like romances as much as you… But, I get lost and then bored. It needs action or mystery or supernaturals or something for me to keep interest…
I read everything Chrissie. Romance fantasy children’s book, thriller action, non fiction… Except war hardcore erotica and child abuse. I am reading a cozy mystery now. What are you reading?
I’m reading Threats of Sky and Sea by Jennifer Ellision and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.
Kinda has Avatar vibes, yeah… It’s good, I’m 70% through it.
I just finished the cozy… Oh girl it was slowwww
You got through it? I cannot make myself read slow books anymore. What was it about?
Wiccan practices, murder, investigation. Better characterization and more spirits and clues from the other realm would have made this super exciting. Well…. My review is done and scheduled, short and sweet like the book.. Hehehe
I’ll wait for it to come out.
This sounds fun, and from your review, worth a read! 😁
It was cute…
Another great review from my favorite reviewer! You’ve been a busy girl, Shalini. Wish I had as much time to read as you do. Looking forward to the next one! 🙂
I had an off for a week, and I read up all I could.. Woo-hoo
Thank you so much Leslie♥️💜. I am reading your book too, darlin’
Oh my goodness….. those quotes alone would have sold me on the book… had me laughing. But that you gave it five stars!!! woo!! Gonna check it out on amazon now.
It was so funny… I was laughing, crying in the break-up part (the ice around my heart was broken then, I could cry, you know the reasons) then it made me smile that love always finds a way. Fingers crossed…
Finger crossed indeed. It does seem like a lovely story.
Very sweet ♥️💜
I am still laughing at the quotes imagining Dan finding them eyes down the woman garden
I even listened to the audible sample. Hahahahaha. Sounds good. On the list the story goes! Lol
Cozy babe, do you think if I vajazzled, it would help? Hahahaha 😂😂😂😂. But no thank you… It would be too much pain and shock
Yeah… that’s a bit extreme…… hmm…. Lol. Wonder if they were still friends after that episode! lol
Oh yes this was done in the salon where the main character works. All under consent and no force
You go girl! Your reviews make me check out books I wouldn’t normally look at. This one sounds fun, so thanks for sharing and have a great weekend! 🙂
You too… Have a fab one
Wow a five starer. Thank you Shalini
It is a fun fab book
Thank you Shalini ❤️
I’m so glad you enjoyed this Shalini. Lovely review!🤗
I had so much fun. How you doing? How was Roarke? Did he make you okay?
I love books that are a fun escape.☺️ Alas, I’m still battling the migraine. It’s bad when not even Roarke helps.
Oh I am so sorry, girl… I am sending you all my healing vibes and my love for you. ♥️💜😘😘
Thank you Shalini!😚😚😚😚
This looks adorable – I’m glad you found a happy read!
This was took cute…
This sounds so lovely and cute!! I love the idea that love will find a way!
Did you read the dialogs. I remembered you and I am sure you would do something like that
Yes, it DEFINITELY sounds like us!! 😂😂😂… I’m the one who would get “vajazzled” though, right? 😂😂😂
Oh yes and the epi pen? 😂😂😂I remembered you and your love for internet while reading that
Oh, I am the QUEEN of autocorrect embarrassment!! 😂😂 I still remember sending out a text to my employees once and I put one of their names in it (Arman) and it autocorrected it to Seman!!! 😂😂😂Luckily, I had a good relationship with my staff so they just thought it was hilarious! All I needed was for one of them to get offended and go to HR because of my fat fingers!! 😂😂
Hahaha Arman would have got offended hahaha Arman means a wish… Don’t know what Seman means. But Saman means a thing… Hehehe there you go.
