What they say: It’s the age-old saying. You wait all day for a bus, and then three come along at once. But proposals? That’s just ridiculous. And yet, on New Year’s Eve, as the countdown finishes and the whole pub erupts in celebrations, Cerys finds herself staring at her ex-fiancé, Ricky. Who just so happens to be kneeling on the floor, ring in hand, asking her to marry him. Again.

And if that weren’t enough, hot barman Angelo, and longtime friend Huw also decide to pop the question. At the exact same time.

Three men, two real contenders, but just one choice. What on earth will she do?

The Review: I’d read a few of Katey Lovell’s short stories before (I’m afraid I haven’t reviewed them on the blog yet so here’s the Amazon link-make sure to check them out and her new book ‘The Singalong Society for Singletons,’ which is on my Kindle and to be read very soon here ) and as I did I kind of nodded and smiled. They were nice, romantic, enjoyable, short reads that were perfect for getting you out of reading slumps.

This story was just a little bit edgier, and had me sitting up, just a little more. We meet Cerys, the designated driver on New Years Eve, watching people become drunker and drunker around her. It had all the trademark activities of a night out-too high heels being discarded, friends getting with strange guys in pub corners and crazy dancing and I was there, almost experiencing it all. There was a jump back of eighteen months and we got an insight into one aspect of Cerys’ old life, and then we went back years further, with the descriptions of the background settings putting you, the reader, back to the time too, with excellent additional little descriptions that really added to the effect.

I have to say this was a very satisfying read and is actually free on Amazon so definitely one to download and has me looking forward to her full length novel, The Singalong Society for Singletons, which, as I said above, I’m looking forward to reading very, very soon!
