Ness is a fact checker working for a London based magazine She lives in a horrible flat, hates her commute, dislikes her boss and dreams of something different while being stuck in the mundane day to day of her life She has a smile thing major crush going on with an attractive stranger she sees semi regularly on the tube and one day he drops his phone which she picks up and tries to return to him but doesn t get a chance before he s lost in a crowd This sets the scene fo I ve read and loved all of Jaimie Admans books, and while it seems impossible to choose a favourite, The Little Vintage Carousel by the Sea might just be it.
I love how relatable Ms Admans characters always are I really felt for Ness and her desire for something She settled for a ho hum relationship and after breaking free from that, she then settled for a ho hum job The job was something to pay the bills and maybe even a stepping stone to something better, plus it meant getting to work with her best friend, so it wasn t so bad I think a lot of us tell ourselves that it s not so bad even when we re miserable and desperate for change.
Enter Nathan adorable, awkward, slightly insecure Nathan and everything in Ness s life changes Nathan was just as relatable as Ness he d been hurt, he didn t want to put his trust in someone else, didn t want to fall in love again or ever be
Nathan is a stranger to Ness but they have been sharing coy looks at one another on the train for a while, with neither summoning up courage to speak to the other The story follows that Ness is sent to seaside town Pearlholme by her boss to find Nathan and return his phone to him after he drops it on the train What he doesn t know is that she has been tasked with writing a series of articles about their encounter and how she is trying to track down the handsome, mysterious train man Nathan seems so happy go lucky that at times I could not figure out how I felt he would feel once he found out Ness had written the articles after he d fallen for her and vice versa However we also learn that he is so shy and keeps to hims Having read previous books by this author, I was very much looking forward to reading this one, her latest release Also I absolutely adore love the cover Well this was a truly delightful and enjoyable read I loved it from start to finish, there were moments that just melted my heart and then there were moments that totally made me giggle I really liked the character of Ness as I felt like I could totally relate to her, and our personalities are so very similar, not to mention that we share the exact same name lol So because of that I felt as if I had a pretty close connection with Ness throughout the whole of the story.
As for the story itself, I loved the concept ot it and on the whole it was very well written, however I What a lovely feel good book A mysterious stranger on a train A spark of attraction Finally brought together in an idyllic location Throw I an emotional backstory, an intriguing mystery and a cast of hilarious characters I loved everything about this book and really hope there might be a sequel I do love this author s style of writing Cover is gorgeous too Thank you to author and to TBC for the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
