‘Have you ever given up on love?
When her boyfriend lets her down for the last time, Brooklyn bookshop owner Bea James makes a decision – no more. No more men, no more heartbreak, and no more pain.
Psychiatrist Jake Steinmann is making a new start too, leaving his broken marriage behind in San Francisco. From now on there’ll just be one love in his life: New York.
At a party where they seem to be the only two singletons, Bea and Jake meet, and decide there’s just one thing for it. They will make a pact: no more relationships.
But the city has other plans …’
Thank you to Avon for asking me to be a part of the blog tour for Miranda’s new book. Now I have to admit that this was my first book of Miranda’s and…. well I absolutely fell in love and plan to spend Christmas in a Miranda induced coma, as I binge on the rest of her books!
Bea is let down by her useless boyfriend, James, for the final time and she is finally seeing sense for the first time in a long time when it comes to James, and she finishes their relationship. She comes from a family of wonderfully loved up couples, so why isn’t it as easy for her?
Jake is in the same situation as Bea, he has just had his marriage fall apart. He thought he had a happy marriage, only now he is questioning his entire relationship with his soon up be ex wife. He leaves San Fransico and moves to New York, where he will now be closer to his brother.
Both Bea and Jake are sowrn off relationships so when they meet at a party, they both decide to make a pact: no more relationships.
Jake and Bea start to spend lots of time together, exploring New York and become really good friends. But before we can get too excited and start planning the wedding we have both exes on either sides back. Otis on Bea’s side, who has decided he wants her back and even asking her an important question. And Jessica, who shows up in New York!
I quite simply loved everything about this book, it’s a perfect read to warm you up on a winter’s night. I’ve always wanted to visit New York and the way Miranda writes and describes New York had me feeling as though I was there. Miranda’s characters jump from the pages and become a part of you as you read.
A tale of friendship, trust and love. A book so good it’s hard to put down.
