This is the first book by Mhairi McFarlane. The story flicks between present day, and the main characters past lives at University, but is very easy to read without getting confused between the two times.
The story takes place in Manchester which I loved as I myself have worked and socialise in Manchester. I really enjoyed knowing every place that was referenced in the book and being able to clearly visualise the scenes. It really made me feel connected to the story.
I loved the characters and found them all very believable The story was funny, moving, sad in places and most of all true to life. This was a brilliant example of chick-lit escapism, the books makes you feel good despite having me in tears at one point. I didn't hesitate giving it five stars on Goodreads.
Plus, the book has been on offer in paperback and also on Kindle; and I love the cover!
This book was the first book I read on my new Kindle Fire and I really enjoyed it. I particularly like that I can pick up reading whenever I like so even if I don't have my Kindle with me, I always have my phone, which having the Kindle app, means I can read whenever I have a spare five minutes. Given that I didn't want to put this book down, that was quite handy.
