They’ll always have each other…won’t they?

Lisa and Elliot have been best friends ever since the day they met as children. Popular, bright and sporty, Lisa was Elliot’s biggest supporter when the school bullies made his life a misery, and for that, he will always be grateful.

Twenty years later, life has pulled the pair apart and Lisa is struggling. Her marriage is floundering, her teenage kids are being secretive, and she’s so tired she can’t think straight. So when Elliot knocks on the door, looking much better than she remembers, she can’t help but be delighted to see her old friend again.

With Elliot back in their lives, Lisa’s family problems begin to improve – he’s like the fairy godmother she never had. As their bond deepens, she realises how much she’s missed him, and prays that this is one friendship that will last a lifetime. But sometimes, life has other ideas…

My Thoughts:

This is an author that will never disappoint, a story that will pull you in and entrance you till the very end. I didn’t want it to finish as I loved the way Lisa and Elliot were together. The story hops from the past to the present where we see how Lisa and Elliot first met to where they are now in their life. I did have a few tears in my eye near the end as I felt as though I really knew Elliot.

Time to Say Goodbye By S. D Robertson

Time to Say Goodbye By S. D Robertson

time to say goodbye


Will Curtis’s six-year-old daughter, Ella, knows her father will never leave her. After all, he promised her so when her mother died. And he’s going to do everything he can to keep his word.

What Will doesn’t know is that the promise he made to his little girl might be harder to keep than he imagined. When he’s faced with an impossible decision, Will finds that the most obvious choice might not be the right one.

But the future is full of unexpected surprises. And father and daughter are about to embark on an unforgettable journey together . . .

My Thoughts:

This book intrigued me as I don’t normally read books with unrealistic plots and even though I am glad I have read it, it wasn’t really for me. It is a very emotional story that I found really hard to read. I found some conversations between Ella and her father Will a bit too complex for her age too. The characters were all good but the story just wasn’t my cup of tea.
