Today I am sharing my review for When You Were Mine by Lisa Swift, this is my first book from this author and I absolutely loved it.
This book is brimming with fantastic characters that I loved getting to know. Ibby. Maggie and Other Max have been friends since their student days and as the story progresses you get an insight into events that happened during that time that they no longer talk about.
I love the family dynamic between Maggie, Ibby & Amelia, Amelia is a typical teenager mood changes and all from one breath to the next and is thrown a total curve ball when the famous Jordan Nash comes to stay.
I really enjoyed this book and loved reading about how Maggie, Ibby & Jordan’s lives were once intertwined and over the course of this story how they developed both new relationships and re-established old ones.
I read this book over a couple of days and found that once I had hit 50% I flew through the pages as the characters seemed to be jumping out of the book at me and I just had to keep reading to see what would happen next.
If you looking for a lovely light hearted read, I would highly recommend this book.
Life is a love song when you find the right notes
Maggie and Ibby make up a happy – if unconventional – family. After meeting at university, they now live in the village of Applecroft on the beautiful West Country coast.
Okay, so Ibby’s gay and prone to disastrous dates, while couples’ counsellor Maggie spends her days helping people with their relationship problems despite having no sex life of her own. Nevertheless, they’re devoted to bringing up teenage daughter Amelia – the result of a drunken one-night stand when they were students – in a stable and loving family.
Until a face from the past – in the form of hard-partying rock star Jordan Nash – disrupts their quiet lives. As Jordan struggles with his personal demons and old secrets are revealed, can Maggie and Ibby stay strong? Or will bringing back the past threaten all that they’ve built in the present?
