Publisher Headline Review
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
In the Cornish town of Talting, everyone is famous for something.
Until recently Rose was known for many things: her infectious positivity; her unique artistic talent; and her devotion to childhood sweetheart Lucas.
But two years ago that changed in one unthinkable moment. Now, Rose is known for being the young woman who became a widow aged just twenty-four.
Though Rose knows that life must go on, the thought of carving out a new future for herself is one she can barely entertain. Until a newcomer, Robert, arrives in Talting for the summer…
Can Rose allow herself the chance to love again?
What did I think?
‘The Second Love of My Life’ is ultimately an uplifting love story that proves you can get through anything. It is full of love and more than just the romantic kind. Walters has managed to incorporate how friends and family can be the most important thing around you when you’re in a time of need.
It was an easy book to read and get in to. It evoked lots of emotions and also something I think most people fear- losing a loved one. ‘The Second Love of My Life’ shows how you can move on and how it is possible to move on when you have nowhere else to go. It really is a heart-warming read that is sure to make you feel good when you finish reading it.
I unfortunately found it quite predictable and at times just a little too uneventful. I don’t think this is down to Victoria Walters as I do think that the whole chick-lit genre is quite predictable as a whole. That being said, it doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy them! However, I do think that Walters writing style needs a little work. I don’t feel that it flowed as well as it could have. I also felt that the end of every chapter ended with a sentence that could have ended the book – it was quite frustrating.
My Rating? ♥♥♥
