Right away, this book reminded me of PS I Love You by Cecilia Ahern. Briefly: after Ally passes away, her boyfriend and best friend (who hate each other) receive messages (prearranged by Ally) to do things together on the anniversary of her death. This throws the 2 together……for Ten Years.

At first, Charlie and Becca are at each other’s throats, complete with insults and just plain nastiness. As each year goes by, the insults get less. What happens by the end is pretty predictable. It’s like watching a Hallmark movie.

It’s a cute book. But there is much of the same, over and over. I was glad I was reading it as an ebook. The author used a lot of British words and phrases. Most you could decipher by the context, but with the ebook capabilities, I was able to get the exact meaning in a second.

I had high hopes for this book. But, it was not the book for me. Judging by most of the reviews I have seen, I am in the minority. That’s ok. Not every book is for everybody.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
