    A fabulous book which I didn't want to end

    I really adored this story, it was so well written. The characters were a warm bunch who took me to their hearts. This is my first book by this author and I feel it won't be my last. I liked the cover too, a proper summer read

    A sweet read

    This was a cute read, though a slow and confusing one to start with. A book on family and relationships where friendship and love mattered. A different family of sorts where Ibby and Maggie brought up their daughter together even when they were not a couple. Ibby was gay. Entered Jordan, a blast from the past, who changed the equation. A rockstar who wrote a song and brought the paparazzi to their doorstep. Secrets were revealed and past came crashing down. Would they survive it all? My first book by author Lisa Swift was delightful both in its unconventional family setup and their acceptance of each other. At all times, their daughter took priority in all their life decisions. The author’s conceptualization of characters was mature and developed. Their strength grew over the period of time. Each were quirky and lovable too. Lisa’s portrayal of first love and second chances had me smiling through the pages. There was a genuineness in the prose where social themes were dealt with, but with a lighter hand. The twist in the end was a good, unexpected surprise. Relationships and family made this book a light and warm breakfast read.

    Delightful Story

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. When You Were Mine is the first book British author Mary Jane Baker has written under the pen name Lisa Swift. Magdalena Nightingale (Maggie) a couples counsellor and Aaron Ibbotson (Ibby) a journalist and bookseller and their daughter Amelia are a family, an unconventional family because Maggie and Ibby are not a couple in that Ibby is gay but they are raising their daughter Amelia together and to them family comes first making it difficult to find romantic partners. Maggie has basically given up on the idea and Ibby always hopeful that someone will pass the Harrison test (which Harrison Ford role is the best) as well as understand about his family and how it works is still actively looking. Their placid existence is upended when Maggie’s college boy friend Max Jordan aka rockstar Jordan Nash writes a song while in rehab called Magdalena and the paparazzi come calling. Max crashes back into their lives and nothing will ever be the same as secrets are revealed and bonds are tested. I really enjoyed this story that explores love in all its permutations, second chances and friendship. Sweet not steamy. Publishing Date August 14, 2019 #NetGalley #LisaSwift #HeraBooks #Bookstagram
