Amazon Review
I loved The Love of Her Life, 7 July 2008
By Nancy (London, UK) - See all my reviews

This review is from: The Love of Her Life (Paperback)
I had this on pre-order from Amazon as I'd loved GOING HOME and HOPELESS ROMANTIC, but this is definitely Harriet Evans's best novel yet. It's as witty and warm as her debut, as romantic as her second, but somehow this is more accomplished and grown-up. I even cried.

Kate is living in New York & running from her past. Something made her flee her former life in London three years ago, and The Love of Her Life takes you back to find out why. The flashbacks to 'This Life' era London are brilliantly done - they start as light nostalgia for those post-university entry level job days & before long you're utterly gripped as you race to the end to find out what went so horribly wrong.

Despite Evans's trademark humour, it's a heartwrenching read at times, so thank goodness for the happy (but not implausible) ending. I'm putting her next novel on pre-order right now.
