Hello and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Maybe One Day by Debbie Johnson. Thanks so much to Alainna Hadjigeorgiou for the invite and to the publishers for my ARC via NetGalley. Before I share my review here’s what the book is all about:
“What if you had the chance to find a lost love?
Jess still thinks about the man who disappeared from her life seventeen years ago, and the tragedy that tore them apart. So when she discovers a hidden box of letters in her mother’s attic, Jess realises that the truth about why he walked away has been kept from her all this time.
Jess sets out to follow the faded postmarks across the country, determined that her journey will bring her closer to him. As each clue falls into place, Jess discovers new things about herself – and the man who once broke her heart. Maybe she can find him. Maybe their love story isn’t over.
Maybe one day, they will be together again.”
Available from: Hive – Waterstones – Amazon – Audible UK –
Wow what a lovely story, beautifully written by new-to-me author, Debbie Johnson.
I loved this book even though at times it was very a sad read. I loved how the story was told, with glimpses into Jess’ past, running parallel to the present storyline.
Jess was a lovely character who I empathised with right from the first page all the way through the book. Michael her cousin was great fun, bringing light relief when they all needed it. Belinda was the friend Jess really needed to track down Joe and I’m so glad she stayed to help Jess along the way.
I don’t want to say anything else about the plot, as I’m sure I’ll say too much and ruin this lovely book. I didn’t cry but I did well up a few times, which I’m doing right now whilst writing this review.
I highly recommend this if you enjoy a contemporary tearjerker that’ll also make you smile.
About The Author
Debbie Johnson is a best-selling author who lives and works in Liverpool, where she divides her time between writing, caring for a small tribe of children and animals, and not doing the housework.
She worked as a journalist for many years, until she decided it would be more fun to make up her own stories than to tell other people’s.
After trying her hand at pretty much every genre of writing other than Westerns and spy dramas, she now specialises in creating uplifting women’s fiction that seems to make people laugh and make people cry, often at the same time.
Her books focus on the things that really matter to most of us – love, family, community and getting by with a little help from our friends. They include The A-Z of Everything and the hugely successful Comfort Food Cafe series.
Debbie has now sold more than 1,000,000 copies of her books, and is published in the USA, France, Germany, Sweden, Holland, Turkey, Italy and Ukraine. Two of her books – The A-Z of Everything and Never Kiss A Man in a Christmas Sweater – have been optioned for film/TV.
