My Rating: 5 stars


Here comes the bride … but how long can she hide?

When Kitty Clayton flees her wedding with no money, no bank card and no phone, her life seems worryingly futureless. All she knows is, she’d rather sleep on the streets than go back home to cheating Ethan.

After picking her up hitch-hiking, widowed children’s author Jack Duffy takes Kitty under his wing, looking out for her until she gets back on her feet. And it’s not long before the two grow close…

But with Jack struggling to recover from the guilt he feels over his wife’s death and Kitty refusing to face up to the problems she’s running away from at home, will the two ever manage to share a happily ever after?

My Review:

This book had me gripped from the very first page. I stayed up late trying to finish it. I loved it. Kitty was running away and stumbled across another broken soul who offered her a helping hand and escape when she most needed it.

This book is full of English humour which isn’t for everyone but I loved it. What starts out as light-hearted actually has depth and nuance that is unexpected but brilliant. This is my first by this author but it won’t be my last. I already have another book waiting on my kindle.

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. *Blurb and cover image via Goodreads.
