Happy Wednesday booklovers! I hope everyone is having a lovely week and not melting as there is a heatwave in the UK at present ☀️ .
Today I’m excited to share my thoughts on The Love Square by Laura Jane Williams!
She’s single. But it can still be complicated…
Penny Bridge has always been unlucky in love.
So she can’t believe it when she meets a remarkable new man.
Followed by another.
And then another…
And all of them want to date her.
Penny has to choose between three. But are any of them The One?
I was excited to read The Love Square because I was looking forward to reading something fun and funny, and whilst it was both of these (in abundance!), Williams hits the reader hard with a number of serious themes, including life after breast cancer, fertility, and the question of women starting a family without the pre-requisite of a relationship. It also has almost as many heartbreaking moments as it does belly laughs: This is not mindless chic lit (which of course there is nothing wrong with, but this isn’t it).
HOWEVER, I did for the most part find poor Penny’s predicament to be pant-wettingly funny and it was exciting finding out what (or who 🤣 ) was waiting round the corner at each new stage of her path! Warm, tender, and such a fun, feel good read; I really enjoyed this book and was sad to leave Penny and her friends behind.
The Love Square had me snorting and wheezing with laughter like a chain smoking Walrus – it was just brilliant and I loved it.
Thanks to both Avon Books and Sabah Khan for my copy of the book – The Love Square is out now and you can buy it here
Until next time! Have a wonderful day!
