About the Book:
Fifteen years ago in the colourful bustle of Vietnam, Celine and Patrick met and shared four blissful days together. It felt like true love, but soon reality tore them apart and Celine moved on. But now, when she sees him unexpectedly on a busy London street, suddenly nothing else matters. As she deals with the mixed emotions of an amicable divorce, Celine becomes preoccupied with her daughter and the dating agency she founded—not least when her ex-husband, Mike, asks her to find him someone new. But now her path has crossed with Patrick’s again, is fate determined to pull them back together? Or is it Mike she really wants a second chance with? Because first love is hard to get over. But real love never lets you go.
What is it about an innocent enquiry about your well-being that makes you realise you’re actually not doing well at all?
Carol Mason writes such wonderful prose. The characters were well developed, real to life yet flawed too. The story was so wonderful with both feel good moments yet at times you wanted to cry. I enjoyed reading about the atmosphere in both the UK and Vietnam, I felt like I was there.
We were empty vessels who wanted the other to fill them.
Women's Fiction is not one of my favourite genres, but when it's written with the talent of Carol Mason, what's not to love?
Thank you NetGalley, Amazon Publishing UK and Carol Mason for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
