Unexpected Lessons in Love By Lucy Dillon

What happens when ‘I do’ turns into ‘I don’t know’?

Jeannie always wanted to fall in love, and now she’s finally got the whirlwind romance she dreamed of. Dan’s gorgeous, he’s a successful young vet, and he flew her to New York and proposed on Brooklyn Bridge. Jeannie has to remind herself this is actually her life. It seems too perfect, too magical, to be real. Yet it is.

But now she’s on her way to the wedding she can’t shake off the tight sensation crushing her chest. Is it just nerves . . . or is this all happening a bit too fast?

Jeannie has one last chance to shout, ‘Stop!’ But just as she grabs it, a twist of fate throws everything she knows into the air like confetti. What Jeannie learns about Dan, about her own heart, and about the power of love itself, will change her world for ever . . .

My Thoughts:

A unusual love story but one that had me hooked. I love how the story grew within the pages of the book and we saw more of the characters come to light. The main focus of the story is to do with Jeannie and her fiancee Dan, but on the side there is a smaller story about puppy farming which I found sad but interesting. It makes you think if your making a decision whether to go with your head or your head. I liked the relationship Jeannie had with her father as it reminded me of my relationship with my dad. This book makes you think if you were in Jeannie’s situation what would you do?

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

She’ll keep just a hundred special items – the rest can go. Bulucy dillont that means coming to terms with her past and learning to embrace the future, whatever it might bring……


My Thoughts:

I absolutely loved this book. Lucy Dillon makes you feel drawn to her characters in a way no author has ever made me feel. I’ve read all of Lucy Dillon’s books and I pretty much go through every emotion whilst reading her books, this book was no exception.

I loved the relationship between Gina and the greyhound Buzz, it was clear they both needed someone to love and they found it in each other. This story is an emotional roller-coaster especially for women that have been through what Gina had gone through and families that have been through or going through personal experiences such as this one in the book.

There are authors that write about personal experiences but Lucy Dillon has really sympathised with her wordings and it personally made me feel like she gave Gina justice. It made me think how grateful I am for life and living and I appreciate you have to make the best out of each day.

Now waiting for Lucy Dillon’s next book, hopefully it won’t be too long await.
