I am super excited to share my review with you on publication day for If Only by Angela Marsons…….Which is out today
“I want Michael Hunter to fall so deeply in love with me that he can’t bear to be more than fifty feet away,” Cher declares to her best friends over cheesecake and wine. But what if she’s searching for happiness in the wrong place?
As Cher types up letters about overflowing rubbish bins in a job she hates, she dreams of Michael Hunter. He’s gorgeous, smart, funny and he’s about to become her new boss. But he barely looks at Cher except to ask for a coffee refill. How can she get him to notice she’s the perfect girl for him?
While Cher ignores the warning from workmate Dan that Michael is bad news, her friends have their own problems to fix. Sarah is longing to start a new life with a man who won’t commit, and bride-to-be Deb should be looking forward to her wedding, but her future mother-in-law is turning it into a nightmare from hell… If only her fiancé could see it that way.
So, when one summer evening, over several glasses of wine, Cher, Sarah and Deb stumble across an old book and decide to cast a wishing spell, they don’t think for one minute that it will come true. It’s just three best friends having a laugh and throwing some herbs around the garden. Or is it?
Totally unputdownable, absolutely full of laugh-out-loud ‘I’ve so done that’ moments, and plenty of emotional twists and turns that will keep you refilling your wine and racing through to the end. The perfect romantic comedy for fans of Shari Low and Sophie Kinsella.
I am a massive fan of the Kim Stone series by Angela Marsons. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out about this beauty If Only! I couldn’t wait to get stuck in.
So there I am lapping up the sun on my first holiday first in two years. Grabbing me right from the start I listened to it in just two days. Taking full advantage of my time I found myself strolling up and down the beach. Listening to If Only which was music to my ears.
Telling the story of three friends. Who find an old book joking about they cast a spell……what could go wrong. Just three best friends having a laugh. Then things start to happen, is it linked to the spell or not?! read it and find out for yourself you wont be disappointed.
This story is about friendship, dreams and living. It is a perfect, fun, light hearted entertaining read. Which will make you laugh out loud. For me it was the perfect holiday read.
It is full of likeable and relatable characters. Not forgetting the narrator who did a wonderful job telling this story. Bringing the characters and the whole story to life. I felt a bit of Practical Magic going on. So anyone that loves that movie will sure as hell love this book.
Massive thank you to Kim Nash for bringing this book to my attention and if inviting me on the tour.
