I have read a few books by this author, which some I enjoyed more than others. The story description didn’t appeal much to me so I wasn’t too eager to read it. If I’ve known I was going to enjoy it so much, I would have picked it up much earlier.
This is a slow burn romance that, unlike most of the books in the genre, is about two people who were a couple once and external circunstances bring them back together again. The plot per se isn’t original but Ms Dutton brings the characters to life with such a skill that you can feel and empathise with their contradictions, struggles but above all, their ability to love. This fabulous character portrayal permeates to the secondary characters too contributing to get a whole family picture. The plot develops and manages the tension perfectly so much so that you could actually feel their anguish and need of conflict resolution. In this context, the subplots complement the story and gives it an even more realistic feel.
Thumbs up to Ms. Dutton for this great read. I cannot recommend it more! 5+ stars.
I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
