Goodreads:  Delia Moss isn’t quite sure where she went wrong.

When she proposed and discovered her boyfriend was sleeping with someone else – she thought it was her fault.

When she realized life would never be the same again – she thought it was her fault.

And when he wanted her back life nothing had changed – Delia started to wonder if perhaps she was not to blame…

From Newcastle to London and back again, with dodgy jobs, eccentric bosses and annoyingly handsome journalists thrown in, Delia must find out where her old self went – and if she can ever get her back.

Kritters Thoughts:  Delia is ready for marriage or so she thinks, so she purposes to her boyfriend and come to find out he has been cheating and her life takes a major turn.  She decides to make a move and gets out of small town and moves to London with a friend and is looking to make a career change.  After a few ups and downs she ends up in a spot that she never thought she could have imagined. 

I love these chick lit books where a woman has to make some major life changes and although it may not start positive there is hope that it will end somewhere positive.  In particular, I loved that this book had both career changes and love changes that were made.  Delia's changes may have been spurred by love, but she used it as the perfect catalyst to get herself into the perfect job.

There were twists and turns but they weren't out of left field and it all felt right.  The book was so fast paced that the pages just flowed from one to the next and it isn't even a mystery/thriller!

This is a chunky chick lit that is perfect for a week at the beach or a weekend at the pool.  I will definitely be looking into Mhari's other works.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from TLC Book Tours.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.


  1. Hey! How come you have a different cover from everyone else? Are you special? The favorite?

  2. I'm hoping to have lots of time to read poolside this summer - sounds like I should have this book on hand!

    Thanks for being a part of the tour.
