Synopsis:

Is it a break? Or is it a blip? ‘You’ve just had a holiday,’ I pointed out, trying not to yawn. ‘Wasn’t that enough of a break?’ ‘I don’t mean that kind of break.’ There’s nothing worse than the last day of holiday. Oh wait, there is. When what should have been a proposal turns into a break, Liv and Adam find themselves on opposite sides of the life they had mapped out. Friends and family all think they’re crazy; Liv throws herself into work – animals are so much simpler than humans – and Adam tries to get himself out of the hole he’s dug. But as the short break becomes a chasm, can they find a way back to each other? Most importantly, do they want to?


Review:

Humorous, heartwarming, and absolutely enchanting!

This story is told from two different points of view. One is that of Liv, a sweet, intelligent veterinarian eagerly awaiting a marriage proposal from her boyfriend. And the other is Todd, a struggling carpenter who has the perfect proposal in mind. But like most things in life things don’t always work out the way we planned and before long cold feet and bad communication cause things to get completely turned upside down.

The writing is witty and crisp, and the characterization is well done, with not only interesting, likable main characters, but a whole slew of unique and quirky supporting characters that will definitely make you smile.

Once again, Kelk has written a great rom com about life, love, family, friendship and self discovery that will make you laugh and definitely leave you wanting more.

Lindsey Kelk is a Sunday Times bestselling British writer, who was born in Doncaster, went to uni in Nottingham, moved to London, then New York and now lives in LA. So far, she has written thirteen books, including the bestselling I Heart series, and 63,500 tweets. Which is probably why her newest book is behind schedule.

As well as her ‘witty, funny, warm and clever books’ (thanks, Marian Keyes), Lindsey is the co-host of beauty podcast, Full Coverage, regularly contributes to magazines and spends too much time on the internet. Oh, and Channing Tatum called her a unicorn. Make of that what you will.
