Is hunting down every man you’ve kissed the answer to finding Mr Right?
When Evie is invited to the wedding of the guy she’d fancied throughout her teens, it’s the final straw. What’s wring with her and why can’t she keep a man?
In between consoling herself with ice cream and chocolate, and sobbing her heart out to her cousin Charmaine, Evie has a brainwave – and it all centres around her ‘little black book’ (well, more floral pattened notebook really) – which contains the details of every man she’s ever kissed or dated.
Perhaps the cure for her disastrous love life has been nestled within its pages all along…
Does Evie’s little black book really hold the answers, or will she learn that exe’s are exe’s for a reason?
What a sweet and warm story! Hannah Pearl is a new to me author, yet as soon as I read the back blurb I was fascinated by the original storyline and I can say I wasn’t disappointed. Evie’s Little Black Book is a fresh and new romance that will have you laughing out loud at Evie’s escapade’s as well as having your heart string’s pulled as she tries to find her path to love.
The story opens to Evie wailing away as she receives a wedding invitation from her ex, a man she thought she was hopelessly in love with even though he had never wanted to take their relationship any further then occasional sex. She thinks there must be something wrong with her as all her relationship’s have been more or less the same, why can’t she just find the one? So she digs out her little black book – well her childish floral patterned diary where she has stored every bit of information from every boy and man she has ever dated, kissed and everything between. Evie’s plan is that if she goes through it she will be able to figure out why her life is how it is.
So with the help of her cousin Charmaine – who can I say is hilarious, and the brain’s behind the whole slightly bonkers plan – she set’s out to track them all down one by one to see if she can find the answer.
There is a lot of up’s and down’s along the way that will make you laugh and cry, in some ways her plan fails brings her more trouble and strife then it should as she goes on this adventure in to her past and she soon finds out that probably the best place for them, in her past. But on the other hand, if she hadn’t chosen to go on this quest of enlightenment then she wouldn’t have found the amazing man she did and let me tell you, he is worth all the heartache.
Ms Pearl has written a fabulously witty and romantic story that is fun and engaging to read, this is a wonderful story all about a young woman who has become a little lost in life and Ms Pearl has captured Evie’s anguish over her life with spot on clarity. The story is well paced that keeps you reading, and the character’s are charming and well defined that makes you instantly like them and want to know more about them. I really like this, it is a wonderful introduction for me into this author’s work and from this alone I know that I will be reading more by Hannah Pearl.
Full of emotion and fun!
