Love is in the air…?

Luca is used to being the ‘single one’ at weddings – it happens, when all your other friends are engaged, married or taken. But when she bumps into Tom, her friend from university who broke her heart into a million pieces, she finds herself wondering what could have been.

It’s ten years later, surely she should be over that Tom by now? So why is he looking even more gorgeous than ever – and why doesn’t he seem to be able to keep his eyes off her either?

And as the champagne flows and old secrets resurface, Luca realises that perhaps the time to take a chance on love and life is…now?

So does fate really exist when it comes to your love life?  That is the question that I am left pondering after reading The Time of Our Lives, where you learn about a series of events, which if they hadn't occurred in the order they did may have led to a vastly different outcome. 

Luca is dreading going to wedding of one of her old uni flatmates, as she is the only one from their group that is still single. So  imagine her surprise when there is an ex boyfriend at the wedding too,  the man she almost got together with one New Years Eve, 10 years ago, and a seemingly too good to be true man all vying for her attention. 

Add in being roped in as a last minute extra bridesmaid, and you still haven't scratched the surface of what happens at this wedding. 

In addition to the wedding, we are treated to flashbacks of the year or so that the group all lived together,  not always in chronological order, but in a way designed to drip feed their pasts, and understand fully just how they have arrived at the situations they are now in. 

Expect lies and secrets to be uncovered,  definitely some romance, plenty of comedy, and just a massively gripping story, as everything is untangled. 

This is a cleverly crafted tale that is incredibly enjoyable, and it will certainly entertain you. 

Thank you to Netgalley and HQ Digital for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily,
