It feels like too long since the last time Chick lit May came to BRMaycock’s book blog, so … You’re Welcome!!! It’s Chick Lit May!!!!!

What they say:

It’s never too late to follow your heart. 

One summer’s day seventeen years ago Edie and Joel meet.

Their connection is instant and a friendship is born, although Edie can’t help but wish for more. But just as she builds up the courage to lay her heart on the line, one night changes everything…

Edie’s moved on from the heartbreak of years ago. So the last thing she expects to receive on her thirty-fifth birthday is an email… from her eighteen-year-old self. As more emails arrive, she starts to remember what – or rather who – she left behind.

Following her own advice, Edie heads back to the place where it all began, and finds her path unexpectedly crossing with Joel’s once more. Could this finally be their chance at love? Or are some things better left in the past?

The review: One of the most stunning books I’ve read in some time as we follow Edie, who receives an email from her past self on her 35th birthday. So begins a series of emails that make her stop to wonder what her 17 year old self would think of her life now and spurs her on to make changes.

This book really sucker punched me, I was simultaneously nervous and buoyed, in awe and terrified of where we’d finish. It was vivid and vibrant and sparkly and yet so sad and incredibly thought provoking as it was peppered with life lessons.

All in all a standout book that made me sad and happy, and that I’ll not only be rereading, but recommending and gifting all over the place. Adored adored adored!

Thanks to the publisher for the book in return for an honest review.
