Can stepping out of your comfort zone lead you to ultimate happiness?
Trudy Watts has everything she's ever dreamed of: a job that she loves, a successful boyfriend and an ultra-modern apartment in one of the most fashionable parts of London. With a long-awaited promotion due to come her way and her wedding just around the corner, Trudy's life is just perfect...
That is until catastrophe strikes and her life is turned upside down. She's transferred to Turriff, a remote Scottish town to manage a small, struggling bank branch.
Her arrival is traumatic and she wishes she was anywhere but here... Until she sees him – Ethan, the charming pub landlord, who seems to enjoy nothing more than to tease her. And it's right there, in that pub, that her life will suddenly change...
The story is pretty quick to get going and I loved that Trudy almost straight away found herself out of her comfort zone. I have to say at times that I struggled to engage with Trudy however as the book progresses her personality begins to come out. Her reaction to having no internet for two days is priceless. Although I'm sure I would be a little upset going without my blog for a few days! Then again not having access to social media would mean I probably could read more books.
When Trudy and Ethan first met I knew that it would be entertaining seeing them clash. I loved the sparring between them and it was lots of fun to see these two get to know each other. Their chemistry slowly simmering under the surface kept me interested in the story. The question is will anything happen between them?
I liked the people in the town of Turriff and I almost wish I could have gotten to know them better. There was the potential to bring to life some interesting characters that I'm sure would have made the book that little bit more engaging.
If you just need to forget about your day then this book could be just right for you with a story that is easy going and light hearted.
The Difference Between You & Me would be great to spend a few hours with and forget your troubles!
