#Minireviews The Man I never Met by Elle Cook

What they say: Two lives are about to be changed by one phone call.

When Davey misdials Hannah’s number, at first they think nothing of it.

After all, Davey lives in Texas and Hannah lives in London.

But when Davey gets a job in London, their paths are sure to cross. As messaging turns to video calling, this feels like the start of something.

Weeks later, Hannah is waiting for Davey at the airport, but he never walks into Arrivals.

When Hannah finds out why, her world is turned on its head. And with their future so uncertain, each must pick up the pieces of their lives.

Will fate intervene once more to bring them together? Or will Davey always be the man that Hannah never met?

The Review:

A book for no reason at all I kept bypassing, then randomly opened one evening to be absolutely mesmerised! This is the book of Hannah and Davey, who one day begin to chat on the phone purely by accident. What starts is then a long distance friendship, one that reminded me how lovely long telephone chats can be (we’ve lost them a bit, haven’t we?) When they’re finally about to meet … nobody arrives at the airport (no spoilers, this is in the blurb!)

This had been touted to me as a bit of a weepie and my God it most definitely is, there’s some tough going in there, including, it has to be said, the subject of cancer, but there’s also some fab sparkle, and lovely humour, as well as the will they-won’t they perfection I needed.

Very much recommended, and thanks to the publisher for this gem in return for an honest review.
