  • Good concept

    3.5 stars rounded up. I’m torn on my feelings for this book. I liked the basis of the story and the group of friends in this book as a whole but Clairre the main character drove me crazy l seriously wanted to smack her. She was just one big pity party for her self and seemed super immature. Yes she did develop and grow up a bit by the end but she was still whiny. I didn’t connect to her at all so it was hard to connect emotionally to the story which I really need in a contemporary romance. In the end I didn’t not like it but I didn’t swoon or love it and the steam was barely there. Just an okay read for me 🤷🏻‍♀️ Note: this book is very British with lots of British slang I’ve read enough books like this to understand it but some people may be put off because they don’t understand what they’re saying.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Cheeky, hilarious, and authentically British!

    A Question of Us is an engaging, humorous, friends-to-more romance that features the determined, fun-loving Simon who finally wants something more than friendship with his best mate, and the hesitant, stubborn Clarrie who may finally have to take the risk and acknowledge her true feelings for her best friend. The writing is amusing and witty. The characters, including all the supporting characters, are gregarious, lovable, and well developed. And the plot is a delightful blend of heart, humour, spirited dialogue, pub trivia, competitive rivalry, romantic gestures, and the complex dynamics between friends. Overall, A Question of Us is a quirky, sweet, entertaining tale by Baker that’s full of laughs, creative characters, and touching moments.

  • Immature

    Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest. I had mixed feelings about this novel. I felt that most of the characters acted like horny teenagers and I couldn't tell if they were really adults. Simon was annonyingly persist in pursuing Carrie who is his best friend but the reader doesn't show us the depth or growth of that friendship. This group of friends meet to play trivia games and the novel centers around those interactions which are honestly uninteresting and immature. I just wasn't taken by this romance.

  • Just Okay

    Thank you to NetGalley for an advanced copy. All opinions expressed are my own. A Question Of Us By: Mary Jayne Baker *REVIEW* 🌟🌟🌟 A Question Of Us is a British contemporary romance. I say British because it's a bigger part of the story than I'm used to, and I got annoyed at some point. Clairre and Simon are friends, late twenties, pub quiz team, secretly in love with each other. Simon asks Clairee out repeatedly,and she always says no. Clairre is extremely self conscious and, honestly, a bit insufferable. It's like get over yourself! Eventually, a bet is made for a date. Then, so many pub quizzes and too many characters at once. This story is fun and interesting, but it's also tedious at times. Certain personalities just don't translate well in any story, and Clairee is one of those. The group of friends are fun to read. Simon seems desperate and ridiculous at times. In the end, if none of these things bother you, it's a solid modern day romance that you will likely enjoy. I found it slightly below average.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Feel-Good Read, Full of Humour!

    This is a refreshing read; warm, realistic and so very absorbing - I almost feel as if I'm part of this one! Clarrie Midwinter is not comfortable in her own skin. At the age of twenty-six she still feels that she hasn't grown up, despite running her own small bookstore and living in the flat above. The highlight of her week is competing with a group of friends in the local pub quiz league; the bane of her life is long term friend Simon continually asking her for a date, despite have a legion of girls dropping at his feet any time he as much as looks in their direction. In order to get him to stop, she agrees to a bet where she will go out with him if they win the league - highly improbable given their team's history. This is strong story about a group of friends in their mid-twenties who have grown up together and know each other inside out. They are a fantastic bunch of characters, each completely realistic and wonderfully created and described. The in-jokes could only come from a bunch of mates who know each other inside out and the humour runs throughout the book and had me smiling and laughing all the way. However, there is a serious side to this one, and it unfolds slowly, tantalisingly and is quite beautifully told. I really lost myself in this one; it's very much a feel-good read and the author displays a terrific story-telling talent which, for me, has propelled her onto my 'must not miss' list. No less than five stars will do for this .. and it has earned each and every one!

    Thanks for your feedback!
