About the Book:
Love is in the air...? Luca is used to being the 'single one' at weddings - it happens, when all your other friends are engaged, married or taken. But when she bumps into Tom, her friend from university who broke her heart into a million pieces, she finds herself wondering what could have been. It's ten years later, surely she should be over that Tom by now? So why is he looking even more gorgeous than ever - and why doesn't he seem to be able to keep his eyes off her either? And as the champagne flows and old secrets resurface, Luca realises that perhaps the time to take a chance on love and life

This book was a bit of magic, a touch of humor, and a lot of romance. It reminded me of the chick-lit books that were popular many years ago but have become unfashionable. I absolutely loved the author's sense of humor. And, yes, Luca is a kooky most of the time, but you get used to it. This book wasn't profound literature, but it's a wonderfully humourous read and a lot of fun.

While this is technically a story about Luca, a woman who is going through what can only be called a bit of an early mid-life crisis, it is more about the characters who shape her experiences. The main character does have her happy ending although I felt that ended up being a bit less developed. In fact, even the side characters have their own happy endings - kind of.

So, I think this is one of those books about life choices and what happens when you decide to choose the risky and odd path instead of the normal everyday one most people experience. In summary, an nutty book yet one I seemed to enjoy.

Thank you NetGalley, HQ Digital and Portia MacIntosh for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
