You and Me, Always by Jill Mansell
The day has come for Lily to open her mother's final letter and that day is her 25th birthday. Her mother has left a letter for every birthday since she passed away when Lily was only eight years old. From the letter she discovers more information about her mother's first and only true love. Lily along with the support of her friends Coral, Patsy and Dan wonders if she should look for him. A chance meeting with famous film star Eddie also disrupts her peaceful life.
The characters in this book had depth, were well written and they all had interesting pasts. Lily has quite a sad back story which definitely pulled at my heart strings, I was definitely hoping she got her happy ending. I got quite attached to Patsy's character, I especially liked the scene when she was first introduced. Declan and Coral were also great supporting characters, they were both instantly likeable.
The story moved at a good pace and I didn't lose interest in the characters or get bored with the plot. At the start of the book I hadn't quite decided how I thought the story would play out. I liked that for the first few chapters I couldn't make my mind up. It was refreshing to go with the flow of the book rather than know instantly how everything would pan out.
You and Me, Always is a lovely romance but also enjoyable because of the friendships that were included. The fact that the characters were all different ages makes this book perfect for any age group. I would definitely recommend this book especially if you like stories where the focus isn't always on the main characters.
So if you pick up a copy of You and Me, Always grab a cuppa, relax & enjoy!
4 stars from me!
