I cannot even tell you how happy I am to be on the blog tour today for this: one of the most lovely, captivating romances I’ve read- An Impossible Thing Called Love by Belinda Missen! Oh oh oh, and there’s a giveaway at the bottom of the page!!!
What they say: Don’t miss the new delightfully uplifting book from the author of A Recipe for Disaster!
A second chance at love…
When globe-trotting Emmy first fell for first-aider William on a freezing New Year’s Eve, she really believed that their love would go the distance.
But when she returns to Australia, her letters start to go unanswered and her emails bounce back unread, Emmy decides it’s time to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and start afresh in London.
So she’s shocked when William walks in on her very first day at her new job! Even worse, he’s hotter than ever. But why did he disappear for so long? What has he been hiding? And could this really be their second chance at falling in love…?
Perfect for fans of Carole Mathews, Mhairi McFarlane and Carrie Hope Fletcher.
The review: So this is a story that begins with a lot of chance meetings-chance meetings that funnily enough happen a lot in real life, but that we won’t always recognise in fiction. And yet how many times do you bump into someone you hadn’t known until recently? How many people travel halfway across the world only to bump into a neighbour, old friend or ex? I’ll be honest, I’m always hearing these stories.
This is what happens with the whirlwind that is the lovely Emmy ( I will never ever be able to gush about this character enough!) Emmy and William have one of those chance meetings that result in them bumping into each other again and again. When the letters began I was so far in I was planning their first night together, their wedding and then suddenly realised this was fiction and so some roadblocks would be thrown in (to devastate my dreams;)).
The places we visited were vivid and perfect, the drama made me silently weep (not really but I was practically there!), the love stories so real and all encompassing and the characters simply epic.
This is a book I found due to blogging but conversely made me wish I hadn’t as I would have liked more time with it. I’m generally Rom com only but this is a wistful, swoonerific read that captured my heart and has tempted me into wider reading waters. Beyond recommended and have bookmarked the amazing Ms. Missen to read in the future. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review.
