About the Book:
In this heartwarming follow-up to the bestselling novel Postcards From a Stranger, will Cara’s family past ruin her Christmas present, or will she let love in? After discovering her mother’s secret life, Cara doesn’t have much faith in marriage. So when the love of her life, Simeon, proposes, she struggles to say ‘I do.’ She adores him, but why risk the perfect relationship by signing on a dotted line that could ruin everything? If her parents’ marriage taught her anything, it was that a gold ring doesn’t equal happiness, and she has no desire to follow in their dysfunctional footsteps. But maybe there’s a bigger picture after all. When a tragic accident brings yet more truths to the surface, Cara is forced to question everything she believes—and fears—about long-term love. And the answers aren’t obvious. Could Cara rewrite her family’s history and create her own love story?

I absolutely LOVED The Thing About Clare by Imogen Clark and when I saw this on NetGalley I immediately wanted it. Like the title states, this book number two in the series. I have not read book number one but it isn't necessary to do so, I enjoyed this short read all on its own. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I can't wait to read the first book and see where Cara and Simeon's story started.

As usual Ms. Clark's story is full of beautiful prose, moving emotional scenes, and realistic dialogue. It is the story of a woman whose husband is in a coma, but also so much more than that. Throughout the novel she must deal with the pain it is bringing her to see her husband so far away. An interesting subplot in the novel was that of the main character's best friend and her failed marriage. This relationship was painted in such a way that it drew much sympathy from me, and I felt that the best friend really came to life in the book.

This book was so touching and the imagery was fantastic and I loved the plot and the characters. For those who have never read a Clark novel, I recommend starting with the first Postcards, for those who are already familiar with Imogen Clark, Postcards at Christmas will not let you down, for everything she writes is great.

Thank you NetGalley, Imogen Clark, Amazon Publishing UK and Lake Union Publishing for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
