‘The love story you need in your suitcase this summer!’ Red
What if you almost missed the love of your life?
Nadia gets the 7.30 train every morning without fail. Well, except if she oversleeps or wakes up at her friend Emma’s after too much wine.
Daniel really does get the 7.30 train every morning, which is easy because he hasn’t been able to sleep properly since his dad died.
One morning, Nadia’s eye catches sight of a post in the daily paper:
To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress. I’m the guy who’s always standing near the doors… Drink sometime?
So begins a not-quite-romance of near-misses, true love, and the power of the written word.
Includes a bonus Q&A between Laura Jane Williams and Carrie Hope Fletcher
A wonderfully funny will-they-won’t-they romance told with real emotional honesty, perfect
for those who loved Sally Thorne’s 99% Mine and Helena Hunting’s Meet Cute.

Loved it from start to end !
This book kind of reminds me of the movie Serendipity but is still totally original! This book is filled with near misses and missed connections. You wonder if the two love birds will ever meet! It’s told from a dual perspective and a fun and funny read. Many women can probably relate to how Nadia feels, sharing her insecurities and doubts along the journey. I like the epilogue at the end which is in keeping with the theme of the book. The reader does a good job differentiating different characters and emphasizes the right words to make the story come alive. Highly recommended!!
