    A Novel to Touch Your Soul!

    It's a long time since I read a book which fits the 'One epic love story' line as well as this one does; I certainly won't forget it in a hurry, if ever. Stephanie is engaged - happily -  to Matt, who drops her off at Heathwood Hall for an art lover's weekend. Jamie, happily married to Helen, is one of the tutors for the same weekend. When they meet, there is definitely a spark, but with both in committed relationships, can they just be friends? In full disclosure, I am married to my second husband who is the love of my life. I first met him when I was at school and we met up many years later - I was divorced and he was separated, both with children, so it's both difficult and simple to put myself in Stephanie's shoes. It's too easy to sit in judgement of both her and Jamie, but as the book goes on, my opinion certainly softened. This is a beautifully crafted tale, showing the angst and uncertainty of relationships and the potential heartbreak no matter what direction things take. The story flows so well, and I found myself really involved and eager to find out where it was heading. The inclusion of various songs is a masterstroke and had me rushing to find the tracks online! Roxie Cooper really knows how to write a novel which will touch your soul. I'm not going to spoil the ending - but make sure you have plenty of tissues! My thanks to publisher Penguin for my copy via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.

    a first class read

    The Day We Met by Roxie Cooper is an epic tale of two people whose love has spanned over a decade. The story begins in 2006 with Stephanie and Jamie meeting at an Art and Photography retreat weekend where an instant connection is formed between them. The problem is that both of them already have partners. Stephanie is engaged to Matt, Jamie is married to Helen. Being a romantic at heart I just love a good romance story and this book ticked all the boxes. I also loved all the art and music references throughout which play an important part of the plot. The main characters, Stephanie and Jamie are so superbly written that they come across perfectly realistic. I also felt for their partners as these two people over the course of a decade met up in secret, but as friends, at first yearly, and then more often. They both knew that their connection to one another was strong, they also knew that they had their families to think of too. The book is executed perfectly with all the highs and lows of life examined. The plot unfolded steady and at a good pace. There were lots of my favourite chapters, but chapter thirty certainly gave me the feel-good factor. I felt every possible emotion reading this beautiful book and needed the tissues, on several occasions. An excellent page turner which had me reading very late into the night as I was unable to put it down and the unpredictable ending just added so much more to this novel. Well done Roxie Cooper a first class read and I will definitely be recommending this book to all who love romances novels. I now Look forward to reading more from this author.

    The Day We Met

    Such an emotional and believably true love story charting the ups and downs of the 2 central characters. Unbelievably I had tears running down my face when reading the last few chapters.

    The day we met - heartbreaking

    This book is beautifully written. The charaters are so believable. I loved the way that it was written in both characters perspective. The story was deeply moving and couldn't put it down. I ended up in tears, thank you for writing such a beautiful story x
