Hello, Stranger by Rachel Marks

From their very first date, Jamie and Lucy know they’ve met THE ONE.

They’re as different as night and day. Jamie’s a home bird, while Lucy’s happiest on holiday. He has a place for everything – she can never find her keys.

Yet, somehow, they make each other happier than they ever thought possible.

So why does their story start with them saying ‘goodbye’?

And does this really have to be the end . . . ?

Relatable, romantic and heartbreakingly real, HELLO, STRANGER proves that the best love stories often have the most unexpected endings.

My thoughts:

Thank you to Michael Joseph Books for a digital review copy of Hello, Stranger by Rachel Marks to read and review. I’ve enjoyed reading Rachel’s previous books (you can read my last review here https://mentoringmumof2bookreviews.home.blog/2021/05/10/until-next-weekend-rachel-marks/ ) and I loved the synopsis of this book. i’m sharing a mini non spoiler review today.

This is another fabulous and emotional read from Rachel. I found myself desperately wanting to wave a magic wand for Jamie and Lucy, who fall in love but had a major sticking point to their relationship.

We heard the story from both Jamie and Lucy’s viewpoints, and both were heartbreaking in places. One event happens to make them question whether they can stay together and be happy. I flew through this book, spending time with Jamie and Lucy, wanting both of them to be happy. I had damp eyes at the end of the book. A thought provoking read I’m keen to recommend.
