A great antidote to a year of bad news, we follow the life of our heroine Stella who experiences some rotten setbacks in her love life and a serious betrayal from one of her best mates. It rolls along at a good pace with some colorful characters and it was a joy to escape into at the end of the day. I bashed it in about three days. Recommend – Amazon Review
Laugh-out-loud debut novel, this romantic comedy is the perfect read for 2020
Verb: to stop feeling angry or bitter towards someone who has done something wrong or made a mistake
Easier said than done. Betrayal comes in all shapes and sizes; short acts of pointed malice, sneaky insidious side-swipes, long, drawn-out dramas that test your very sense of self or, simply, betrayal by omission.
And once betrayed, can you forgive? Should you forgive?
Stella Halfpenny doesn’t think so. Ever.
There she was, sitting pretty in a palatial flat in Primrose Hill with the love of her life, Jackson T Lysander-Perry – don’t forget the T please, he is very particular. Her first proper (according to some) boyfriend, one with a proper job, solvent, a homeowner. Job done. Granted he was a bit of a control freak, most of her friends had drifted away and drinking alone was heavily frowned upon, but none of that mattered. She had Jackson.
Or did she?
About the Author
Emma Henry is a first time published author (with a stash of abandoned literary attempts that will never see the light of day. Something we can all be thankful for….). She is a Brit who lives abroad in Switzerland, where she loves to walk before holing up in a coffee shop with her computer and tapping out the next bit of the story – unless she is meeting a friend, in which case the book takes a back seat. Next on the ‘to do’ list is to get a dog. Watch this space….
