I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Catherine Walsh was born and raised in Ireland. She lived in London for a few years before returning to Dublin, where she now lives between the mountains and the sea. When not writing, she is trying and failing to not kill her houseplants.
“There’s something about recording my tasks in writing, with pen and paper and the occasional coffee stain, that helps cement things.”
Abby’s world has completely flipped upside down. The company she worked so hard for has gone under. Her fiancé of three years broke up with her. She lost her apartment- so Abby packs her bags and goes home. To Ireland.
This was such a sweet story. I loved meeting Abby, Louise, Luke, and Tomasz.
The descriptions in this novel are so lovely, and I could almost feel the chilly air on my cheeks. I loved reading about how Abby felt going home. It was nostalgic in the perfect way.
This is so much more than a romantic comedy, and it’s a coming into your own and finding your voice, and being true to your gut story.
This was the kind of story that sucks you in and holds you tight, it’s so difficult to put down. I found the plot endearing, and relevant to a challenge that many young adults deal with.
The main characters were all relatable in some way, and I think readers will find a bit of themselves in Abby.
It’s great that the MC is relatable to a wide range of readers.
