Other People's Business by H. J. Moat @HjMoat #Review

Some cupid kills with arrows, some with traps...

Bee and Ben haven't always hated each other, but they certainly hate each other now. They hate each other so much that it threatens to derail the wedding of their best friends, Imogen and Will.

But then something unthinkable happens and turns everything on its head. Within the wedding party, some hearts swell and others are broken, but will anyone work out that relationships are rarely quite what they seem?

This modern retelling of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing explores the idea of whether we're ever really in control of our own romantic destiny and if true love really can conquer all.

There is drama galore with this set of characters which makes it such an entertaining story of love, lies, secrets and pretty much everything in between. Bee and Ben are such complex characters who were so much fun to get to know. They both have flaws which again makes them perfect for each other, but will they get their happy ever after?

I was completely drawn into the story with it's witty and also quirky characters and I loved the alternating chapters told from both Bee and Ben's perspective it made it so easy to become attached to the characters. As the reader you got to know their inner thoughts and some of them were pretty funny. If I had to pick a favourite character it would have to be Ben I loved how vain he was and I couldn't help but smile hearing what he thought about certain situations. 

With meddling from everyone causing confusion and hurt I was left wondering if things could be put right in the end. There is some good villains of the story who I couldn't help but hate. I loved the romance that runs through this story from Bee to Ben and also Imogen and Will. 

Other People's Business really held a special charm for me with a brilliant story full of romance, wit and drama!

Five stars!

With thanks to H. J. Moat for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
