The third and final instalment of the saga of long-distance lovers, Lisa and AJ. If you’ve been following their story then you’ll definitely want to know how it continues on from where it left off.
Lasairiona doesn’t disappoint. This contains all of her trademark warmth that we’ve come to expect, the best being the journey that we get into Lisa Millar’s head! I love the inner voice that we constantly hear, and Lisa has a continual conversation going on with herself throughout. It’s just fabulous, and I’m positive that most of us can relate to it as who doesn’t have that little voice in the back of their mind that jabbers away to them all the time?! (Own up now!)
But this isn’t only Lisa and AJ’s story, it’s also the story of their extended family and friends who we’ve come to know and love. They’re as much a part of the whole picture as Lisa and AJ themselves, and they’re certainly more than just bit players in the lives of our main protagonists. They play such major roles and I came to care about them too. Jer, Chelsea, Ana, Clare, Aoife, Siobhan and even Dog!
I adored the phone dialogues between everyone – this type of communication is so much a part of our lives, and how much more so between a bunch of long-distance friends who have become like family to each other. I could really relate to this in a big way.
There are parts of this book that had me thinking that I literally couldn’t carry on with it, as it was just painfully heartbreaking, but I ploughed on through it! The characters are so down to earth, you can imagine them being real people who are a part of your everyday life.
This is a gorgeous 4-star, highly recommended read – and of course, I’d recommend that you read all three books in the right order.
Lasairiona McMaster grew up dreaming of an exciting life abroad, and, after graduating from Queens University, Belfast, that is exactly what she did – with her then-boyfriend, now husband of almost ten years. Having recently repatriated to Northern Ireland after a decade abroad spanned over two countries (seven and a half years in America and eighteen months in India), she now finds herself ‘home’, with itchy feet and dreams of her next expatriation. With a penchant for both travelling, and writing, she started a blog during her first relocation to Houston, Texas and, since repatriating to Northern Ireland, has decided to do as everyone has been telling her to do for years, and finally pen a book (or two) and get published while she tries to adjust to the people and place she left ten years ago, where nothing looks the same as it did when she left.
