    Quirky

    This unlikely story features two very different characters, Zara who is a vivacious woman who has grown up around the world but never really felt a sense of belonging and Jim who is a lifelong Liverpudlian who is stuck in a rut at work and who has strong ties to his mum who is in ill health. Both characters are really well written and this enables you to see beyond the seemingly spoilt life of Zara and admire Jim’s sense of loyalty. Their day together is full of misjudgement and misadventure and no shortage of delights for the reader. I really enjoyed this quirky tale and especially liked the epilogue, it was unusual but I really appreciated the way it went.

    This is a book that put a smile on my face

    After an eventful night in Dubai that sees Zara Khoury getting injured, she runs into a night in shining armour, Nick, who helps her. The two form a long distant relationship, as Nick lives in Liverpool. One day Zara decides to surprise Nick and move to Liverpool to be with him. However, things don’t quite go according to plan when she turns up at his door and a woman answers stating no one called Nick lives there. After spending the night in a hostel and getting no answer to her texts she has sent Nick, Zara heads out in the second-hand car she has just bought. Distressed and crying she doesn’t see the white BMW in front of her at a roundabout. Jim Glover is a toll booth worker and feels his life is going no-where, that is until he wins a BMW on a breakfast radio show and finds out it is worth £50,000. He negotiates a deal with a friend’s dad and after a heavy night celebrating in a hotel he sets off to meet him. However, his chance of getting the money quickly evaporated when a young woman smashes into the back of his car. Never Saw You Coming is a fun, enjoyable and at times humorous read about two people who meet by a chance accident. Zara is impulsive and believes in love at first sight. Jim is more cautious and steady. Jim being the nice man that he is offers to help Zara out after the crash as her car is a write-off. He gives her a lift to Nicks again, though this time Nick is there, it’s not long before his wife returns. He also has daughters. The book was a quick read and I flew through the pages. It is told in first person dual povs in opposite chapters. Not something I enjoy normally but this book worked for me. I also don’t usually buy into the ‘met by accident’ or ‘finding out your lover is married’ stories but this felt different, I think it is because it is told in a slightly tongue-in-cheek, amusing way. Overall, this is a book that put a smile on my face whilst reading and gave me some light relief in these hard times.

    Do they . . . Don't they?

    A frustrating and exasperating yet gripping read. It left me wondering what happened to the 2 characters. Perhaps there will be a sequel?
