I am delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for The Trouble With Words by Suzie Tullett. Today I'm sharing my review of this gorgeous story but first of all let's take a look at the description for the book...
Annabel is desperate to have a baby - there’s just one problem. She’s single, and after losing her husband in a hit and run accident she’s just not ready for a relationship.
Dan is on the hunt for the perfect woman - but when his mother drops a bombshell, he starts to feel the pressure.
When Dan and Annabel’s worlds collide, both think that maybe they’ve found the solution to their problems...but things start to get messy.
Can both Dan and Annabel get what they want?
Both will soon find out that the trouble with words is finding the right thing to say.
It was so easy to be pulled into Annabel's story and her heart wrenching past. From picking up this book I didn't actually look up until Chapter 5 when I suddenly realised I was thirsty. So off I went to make a cuppa, I then sat back down and didn't move until I had finished it. Suzie Tullett has created some wonderful characters that defintely tugged at my heart strings. Even though some of the events in this story were sad there were also some funny moments that helped to balance the mood brilliantly.
Annabel longs for a baby but in her position this is never going to be easy so meeting Dan seems ideal. They were a perfect pair with a wonderful chemistry but life isn't easy and can they get their happy ending? I love that the story is told from the perspective of both Annabel and Dan. I always think that you get a better feel for the characters this way along with a more rounded story. Dan is well kind of perfect with such a sweet and caring personality. It is so endearing how he tries to make his mum happy and the relationship they share made me smile on more than one occasion. I loved some of the things she came out with definitely a great addition to the story.
The Trouble With Words made me pretty emotional but also left me with a wonderful sense of hope that was just perfect. This story brings so much to the reader engaging characters, an emotional pull and a lovely heart warming feeling.
Emotional but with a warmth that seemed to leap from the pages.
With thanks to Sarah & Bombshell Books for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
Suzie lives in a tiny hamlet in the middle of the French countryside, along with her husband and two Greek rescue dogs.
