How to fall in love
What can I say, enjoyed every moment of this book. Loved this authors style of writing very much. Every book of hers gives me a new experience and brings a smile to my face. I would highly recommend every one to read this book.
I absolutely love Cecelia's books but this has to be my favourite so real and honest. To write about love and depression in one book takes such a talented person, which leaves you wondering is it a true story? Such a wonderful story I couldn't put the book down. Loved it!!
What a beautiful, intense, intimate, intriguing novel. I only glanced at the first couple of pages and was immediately drawn. I finished it within 8 hours!
