As with all books I read, if I can't picture what's happening from the get-go, I most likely won't enjoy it. An Impossible Thing Called Love though - that movie was playing in my head right from the start.
I love Belinda's writing. It's witty, it's sarcastic, it's lighthearted. It's not that boring 'he said - she said' rubbish. I really enjoyed this book and have read it a couple more times since I first got hold of my copy. It's a book I'd love to see a sequel to.
For Emmy and Red, they find each other early on while Emmy is travelling with friends overseas, but then things go wrong. Long distance relationships can get like that. Communication between them stopped without any warning. But they were obviously destined to be together when Emmy travels back abroad to start a new job, and a new life, only to find that her first true love works there too.
Festivals, punch-ups, dinners, letters, secrets, lies, heartbreak, break ups, divorces, travel, and true love. It's all there - including that happily ever after.....
Belinda Missen is a chicklit goddess and seamlessly combines description, character and action in this wonderfully funny, romantic and heart-wrenching book. Highly recommended. I can't wait to read the next one!
I quite enjoyed the way this one was written. There was a magical feel to it that made me wish I had the guts to up and move to London, like I wanted to for a while there.
As Emmy came across new locations she would marvel at the simplest of things. This really made me connect with her because I do this as well when I travel. The simplest of things grabs me attention and I just want to know more because it’s somewhere different and I want to know how it differs to what I’m used to.
Also, a holiday fling that actually wants to stay in contact just has a magical quality to it. The touches of that magic scattered throughout the story really kept me engaged throughout the whole book.
Right at the very start of the story I thought we might have been in some ancient Viking town or city during a festival. That just shows how recently I’d read the blurb doesn’t it? Coz it was, in actual fact, set in Edinburgh in like 2010 NYE.
One of the magical qualities of this book was the way Emmy and William hit it off as he helped her after receiving a punch in the face. They just seemed to have instant chemistry and it seemed a given they’d get together. Until they parted ways and didn’t exchange numbers or emails or anything.
When they kept running into each other I started to think maybe it would work out. But then it all seemed to fall apart. I felt really bad for Emmy at this point. I’ve lost a good friend when they stopped responding so I can empathise with how she would’ve been feeling. And it made me connect to her even more.
I really liked that the issues that pop up in real relationships was what made these ones difficult. Lack of communication, a feeling of getting left behind, not wanting to look like you can’t hack it. And even the desire to prevent someone else from ruining the relationship so not talking about that person.
If I hadn’t have read a tinsy bit of the acknowledgement (I normally skip these) I wouldn’t have realised that this is actually one in a series. So, I will likely try and ferret out those books and add them to my every growing (it was already ridiculous) TBR pile.
Seriously, if someone could just pay me a decent salary to not work and just get through my TBR pile then maybe I will get them all read along with the rest of the series for those that I liked.
Emmy and William meet by chance in Edinburgh. She is an Aussie, on tour. When she goes back to Australia, they keep in touch by e-mail, by snail mail and by occasional parcel. Then suddenly - Emmy doesn't hear from William anymore. She tries to get on with her life, is in a relationship, but at the back of her mind, there is always William, and she wonders what the heck happened?
This book is all about second chances, miscommunication, and even serendipity, I think! I love the writing style, it made me really like these characters and get fully immersed in their story.
4.5 stars from me.
