It’s My Birthday
… I’ll cry if I want to.
Oh boy, another birthday …
Karen could be excused for crying on her birthday, especially as it’s the first one since her husband got on a plane to the States and never came back. Then there’s the fact that her workmates were practically bribed to attend her birthday meal. But when a restaurant double booking leads to her sharing a table with single dad Elliot and his daughter, things start looking up.
As Karen gets to know Elliot she experiences feelings she thought she’d never have again. But is it enough? Or will the thing that destroyed Karen’s previous relationship also ruin things with Elliot?
I loved this story; it was well written and had a lovely flow to it!
I really felt for Karen and found her to be a genuine and believable character. I thought she was really well developed and loved getting to know her as the book progressed. I loved getting to know Elliott too and hoping that they would both get the happy endings they deserved.
I have to say that I love the cover for this one too – it really is lovely and it is perfect for the story! I loved the settings mentioned in the book too, really good for this kind of story and the plotline was excellent. The story was a really nice one to read!
4.5 stars from me for this one rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – I have read a couple of books by this author and she hasn’t disappointed me yet – really looking forward to her next release!!
