You Had Me At Hello by Mhairi Mc Farlane
Goodreads / Book Depository
Blurb: What happens when the one that got away comes back?
Rachel and Ben. Ben and Rachel. It was them against the world. Until it all fell apart.
It’s been a decade since they last spoke, but when Rachel bumps into Ben one rainy day, the years melt away.
From the moment they met they’d been a gang of two; partners in crime and the best of friends. But life has moved on. Ben is married. Rachel is definitely not. In fact, the men in her life make her want to take holy orders…
Yet in that split second, Rachel feels the old friendship return. And along with it, the broken heart she’s never been able to mend.
My Review: I really enjoyed this book, over the course of reading it (two nights to be exact) i laughed, i cried, i swooned and then cried and laughed again. Now this book is by no means a 'sad' book its just heart breaking at times when the two people you want together seem to have everything going against them and also i'm a a big crier when it comes to books (not a good sight believe me, lucky i share my bed with my dog!)
I also really liked the easy tone of the book and the english setting which was a nice change, it was very reminiscent of Dvid Nicholls 'One day' which i loved (luckily this book doesn't end the way 'one day' did). I'm looking forward to reading more from this author, she's a welcome fresh edition to my reading pile.
P.S: Watch out for my next post, that will feature Mhairi Mc Farlane new book.
