    Disappointing

    Started well but quickly became cliched and monotonous. Before I was quarter of the way though I found I didn't care what happened to the characters.

    An amazing read

    Phoebe Jones is off on the trip of a lifetime, a year out travelling. Her friends don’t think she will go through with it, heck, even Phoebe doesn’t think she can go through with it, that’s why she arrived stupidly early at St Pancras station to await her train to Paris, so nothing can make her change her mind. She didn’t expect there to be a delay with her train, well all trains heading from her station actually, a four-hour delay. This is not good, four hours gives Phoebe time to think and thinking is bad when you’re not sure you can go through with your plans. That is until she meets Sam. Sam is a musician on his way to Scotland. His train is delayed too and after a few joking moments between the pair, they settle in a cafe awaiting the trains to start running again. What they didn’t expect was for fate to intervene and for them to fall for one another in just a few hours. With plans already made, the pair decide that they both should continue on their journey’s but if they believe the spark is real then they are to meet again in a one year back at the station. With twelve months to get through and plenty of travelling, will the two meet again or was this just a fleeting moment never to happen again? The Day We Meet Again is a beautiful book told in the first person and dual narrative via alternative chapters, clearly labelled. I’m a believer in love comes when you least expect it, or when you are not looking for it and neither Phoebe or Sam were looking for love that fateful morning. They both were setting out on journey’s of a life-time, Phoebe travelling and visiting places in her favourite book, Sam to discover more about his father who left when he was just a child. The book was engaging and had me glued to the pages. Both of the main characters were likeable and interesting and their stories heartfelt, although I enjoyed Phoebe’s chapters slightly more as I loved reading about the places she visited. Neither had a straightforward twelve months, there were plenty of hiccups within them and I was keeping everything crossed that they would meet up again as they seemed perfect together. I was so engrossed in the story that I read it in just one sitting as I didn’t want to put the book down, this certainly doesn’t happen often to me. The Day We Meet Again is simply an amazing read and if you are a fan of romance novels then this is one to add to your list.

    Good Read - Too Many Twists

    This reminds me vaguely of 'Brief Encounter', but a bit longer .. and with modern communications methods thrown in! Phoebe is setting off, age 32, for a year abroad; travelling, seeing the sights, expanding her horizons - totally out of character for her. Sam, after many years in London is heading back to his home island of Mull, off the west coast of Scotland to try and find answers from his past. When all trains are delayed at St. Pancras, Phoebe and Sam bump into each other - literally - and a little bit of magic happens. With neither capable of ending whatever this is before it begins, they agree to meet at the same time, in the same place, exactly one year on. I loved the idea of this one, and truly adored being part of both lives and reading about their subsequent locations. The vibrant European cities came alive on the page, and the resulting atmosphere and emotions were easy to imagine; whilst the gorgeous island scenery was breathtaking and spellbinding - and yes, even when it's hot on the continent we Scots don our jumpers and jackets! I enjoyed this part of the novel so much that - for me - it all ended too soon! The return to normality, however, dragged on a bit and had just one or two too many twists. Don't get me wrong, it is a lovely, well-written story with a good mix of characters - I just wondered how the tale would be finished off and when. I did enjoy it, but would have liked it to wrap up just a little sooner. After careful thought, I've decided on three and a half stars for this one.

    Not for me, didn't feel authentic

    DNF at 24%. I liked the premise of this novel. Two people on the cusp of their own big adventure/voyage of self-discovery meet at St Pancras train station and strike up a conversation. Unbelievably they fall in love but decide to let fate decide, they will each go on their separate adventures and, if it was meant to be, they will meet again in 12 months time at the same place. For me, the trouble was that I just didn't buy into the insta-lurve between Sam and Phoebe, I didn't really warm to either character or their romance and switching between two characters didn't really make for a cohesive reading experience. Having stopped and started the book twice I've regretfully decided it's not for me, no point in forcing myself to read a book if I'm not engaged. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
