  • One of the nicest books

    This has been one of the nicest books that I have read all year! Chick Lit at its finest I’d say! There is so much about this book to like. Julie is suddenly made redundant from her job, has issues with her sister and decides she needs to start living life. After a family trip to Hunter Valley, Julie bumps into her first love Scott, both realising there is some unfinished business they arrange to meet up. One meeting then leads to a trip London and Paris. It was refreshing to see London through the eyes of a tourist and that is one point in the book I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved how Anthea Syrokou sets the scene in Paris, allowing us to take in vividly the sounds, smells and Parisian delights that are to be had. Paris and London will leave you in a world of your own. Back home in beautiful Sydney, Australia, Julie has many choices to make. Will she follow her heart or will she take a leap of faith? Will first love Scott have her heart or will ever present George finally capture her heart? Julie really came into her own in this story and I felt we had been on a journey with her, she matured and decided to take risks. She had great best friends in Maria and Cassandra. With a whole host of characters to be had, this forms one of those stories that will stay with you for a long time and one I hope to pick up again in the future. I hope there is not long wait for the next book as I cant wait to read more of the lives of this fabulous group of people. I was actually routing for the ending that was and called this early on in the story. One of my favourite quotes in the book is when Julie receives a gift of a bird figurine resting on a branch. Work colleague George tells her, “Just don’t hold on too tightly to the branch. If it’s too difficult to hold onto it, it may not be the right branch.”

    Thanks for your feedback!
