#BlogTour #Review #NetGalley #OneDayWithYou
One day, five lives, but whose hearts will be broken by nightfall?
It started like any other day in the picturesque village of Weirbridge.
Tress Walker waved her perfect husband Max off to work, with no idea that she was about to go into labour with their first child. And completely unaware that when she tried to track Max down, he wouldn’t be where he was supposed to be.
At the same time, Max’s best friend Noah Clark said goodbye to his wife, Anya, blissfully oblivious that he would soon discover the woman he adored had been lying to him for years.
And living alongside the two couples, their recently widowed friend, Nancy Jenkins, is getting ready to meet Eddie, her first true love at a school reunion. Will Nancy have the chance to rekindle an old flame, or will she choose to stay by Tress’s side when she needs her most?
One Day with You – two fateful goodbyes, two unexpected hellos, and 24 hours that change everything.
I’ve read many books by this author, so knew I was going to be in for an emotional ride, but oh my goodness, what are you trying to do to me?!! This was such a fabulous read! We meet two couples Tress and Max Walker and their good friends, Noah and Anya Clark. Thanks to some very bad decisions made by two of the group, their lives change for ever in the space of a few hours. Max and Tress are on the verge of being parents, but Tress didn’t realise that she would go into labour just after she’s waved Max off on a business trip. Anya is also off on a business trip but leaves in a hurry following a discussion with Noah about their relationship, leaving her laptop behind. Noah, trying to get a message through to her about it, finds out some things about his wife’s business trip which he doesn’t understand and sets out to find her.
This was such a rollercoaster of a read. Whilst I sort of had an inkling about some of the story, I didn’t guess where it was going in the end, and I was left absolutely glued to their stories. Of course, the four main characters were split into the “good guys” and the “bad guys” camp with Tress and Noah firmly being the good ones! I really liked their characters – you could easily relate to and sympathise with them! Of course, you knew that some point in the book their lives would be turned upside down, and that kept me rooting that they would both get through everything!
The book was so well written, it really captured me into the essence of the characters stories. Told from the perspectives of the different characters, the chapters flow effortlessly and uncomplicatedly throughout the book. We also have the added addition of Tress’s older friends, Val and Nancy. Whilst I initially wondered why their stories were in it, they really did provide a welcome light relief from all the sadness and grief which were surrounding Tress, Max, Noah and Anya. Val and Nancy raised a few smiles, a couple of laughs and a heart-warming escape.
This was such an amazing story. I cried and cried throughout, particularly towards the end, so make sure you have a box of tissues at the ready! It showed the tangled web of lies and secrets that people weave and the far reaching consequences of their actions. Highly enjoyable, unable to put down and captivating! Would definitely recommend!
