Evie’s Year of Taking Chances by Christie Barlow 💕 a book review 📚

May 1, 2017

One of the reasons I love to read is because it is an escapism. A way to learn about the lives of others without having to leave the comfort of your own home. Lately I have been extremely lucky to come across books inwhich I not only love the characters but can also connect to the the storyline in someway or another. These are the stories that stick with you for a long time to come.

The Book –

It’s Evie’s birthday and the start of a year she’ll never forget. An emotional story of love, friendship and grabbing life by the horns. 

Evie’s job has always been her safe haven. As a librarian in the little town of Becton she loses herself in books – after all it’s far easier to read about other people’s problems than set about solving her own. 

Then, one birthday, everything is turned upside down. A mysterious parcel containing a beautiful book with a poignant inscription arrives for Evie. It’s the beginning of a new chapter for Evie and she’s inspired to try and find her real mother. 
Evie’s search leads her to meet handsome author Noah Jones. Charming and intelligent, Noah seems the perfect catch but what Evie doesn’t realise is that he is hiding something – a key to Evie’s past. 
As Evie gets closer to Noah and discovering her mother, she must take a giant leap of faith. Can she embrace the new and make this her year of taking chances? And if she does, will she get her heart broken? 

Verdict –

Another lovely book by one of my favourite authors. 

Christie has a lovely, warm and fuzzy way of writing which makes you feel lovely inside. I loved the characters and the setting. Evie is a librarian, she meets authors and that’s how she meets Noah. Noah Jones is not only charming and intelligent but also holds a secret.

I can’t give too much more away but it is a story you will want to read and find out what happens next.

It is a romantic comedy which will touch you all emotionally. Im sure you will be able to relate to it in some way or another.
