If fate sent you an email, would you answer? It’s June – seventeen-year-old Ellie O’Neill’s least favourite time of year. Her tiny hometown is annually invaded by tourists, and this year there’s the added inconvenience of a film crew. Even the arrival of Hollywood heartthrob Graham Larkin can’t lift her mood. But there is something making Ellie very happy. Ever since an email was accidentally sent to her a few months ago, she’s been corresponding with a mysterious stranger, the two of them sharing their hopes and fears. Their developing relationship is not without its secrets though – there’s the truth about Ellie’s past… and her pen pal’s real identity. When they finally meet in person, things are destined to get much more complicated. Can two people, worlds apart but brought together by chance, make it against all the odds?
The plot was enjoyable in this book, it wasn’t overly complicated, and you could see some of it coming, but no more than I think you should. They were very sweet together, and I really liked reading about them.
I felt I connected with Ellie really well, Graham too. Some of the other characters were a bit cardboard cut out, and I would have liked to know a little bit more about them, but to be honest I quite liked them how they were, and I kind of liked how the book focused mainly around Ellie and Graham, not so much around the background characters.
It was written very well, never boring, always interesting enough. I really like her style of writing, I’ve now read one of her other books and loved it.
I loved the emails at the beginning, although when I lent it to my friend she said she didn’t like that you already know who the emailer is, even though Ellie doesn’t. Which I guess takes away some of the mystery, but I really liked. Too each their own.
I really enjoyed it, it’s one of my favourite romances. I loved the way the characters interacted with each other, the beginning was funny, and it kind of kept that atmosphere the whole way through. It’s a very enjoyable book.
In conclusion, a very good book, well written, good characters, good story, I definitely recommend it.
5/5 Because I can’t find any fault in it 🙂
