warm character who you just feel the need to wrap her up in bubble wrap and look after her When we first meet Joe he is definitely a ladies man but as the book progresses I found that each time Joe is around I was getting a little hot under the collar as were most of the characters in the book It has been ten years since they last had contact but now Rebecca s circumstances change and she finds herself running back to her childhood home while she recovers, the last thing she expected was for Joe to still be in the same village They are forced to confront their past which caused them to lose contact but will they be able to move on and start a new chapter I am sure any of you who read Monday to Friday Man had a tear in your eye by the end of that book, well I think you will have a tear at the beginning, middle and end of Ten Years On I have not had a real weepy book since Me Before You but the old lump in the throat definitely occurs in this book but although it is an emotional read, I didn t find it really low and depressing I was gripped from the start of this book and I think it is because it is such a touching and easy read which flowed at a great pace all the way through meaning I couldn t put it down hence the reason I finished it in one sitting The story alternates at times back when Rebecca and Joe first knew each other and then back again to 10 years later when they re meet I loved this as it gave the charactersdepth and gave usinsight into the relationship between the two characters We don t find out until a little further on as to why Rebecca and Joe lost contact but I did have an inkling as to why this could have been but this didn t ruin the storyline or the enjoyment of the book.It was quite clear that a little research had been done for this book as there were some very interesting references and tips when it came to wine tasting so I am assuming that the author had quite an interesting time doing research for this book This is a definite for all of your to be read piles a little weepy and a lot of hope this one will be pulling at your heart strings I will definitely be readingwork in the future by Alice Peterson Sad, heart wrenching and optimistic.I had previously read Alice s Monday to Friday Man and really enjoyed it and I had been wanting to read this one for a while I raced through this book Although the subject matter is different, it tugged at the heartstrings in the same way that Jojo Moyes Me Before You did I felt the relationships between Olly and Rebecca, Rebecca and Joe and Joe and Olly were very well dealt with indeed But always there was an undertone of why did they fall out Why didn Sad, heart wrenching and optimistic.I had previously read Alice s Monday to Friday Man and really enjoyed it and I had been

relationships between Olly and Rebecca, Rebecca and Joe and Joe and Olly were very well dealt with indeed But always there was an undertone of why did they fall out Why didn t they see each other forthan 10 years The author did well to keep this from us untilthan half way through the book, and it keeps us reading Rebecca confides in her friend her difficulty in seeing Joe after all this time, but is persuaded to apply for a job in his wine bar As they get closer, the past is finally addressed Lots of misunderstandings are righted and they both realise that over the years their perceptions have been wrong Rebecca hears Olly talk to her, giving her advice and chatting to her from far away I also liked the little old lady who went on the wine course and the valuable advice she could give to Rebeccca, even about love Can the three main characters learn to forgive and move on This novel is an easy read, which pulls you in and doesn t let go until the last page I will be downloading Alice s other books soon Very impressed with this it didn t feel like just regular chicklit but had some life lessons to teach us and dealt very well with the topic of grief This was okay, but I did have a bunch of thoughts that really stopped me from enjoying this book 1 This book was slow It took a while for the actual climax to arise, but there didn t seem to be a peak of this book It was just very bland There wasn t too much going on after view spoiler Olly s death hide spoiler Basically, every part after that was Rebecca trying to fix her life and find happiness again 2 Because of the anti climactic story, I found the book to be very predictabl This was okay, but I did have a bunch of thoughts that really stopped me from enjoying this book 1 This book was slow It took a while for

from the book before I even read it Rebecca and Olly have a stable relationship, something goes wrong which was view spoiler the death of Olly hide spoiler she goes off the rails, and Rebecca moves back to the country in hopes of recovery 3 I found this book a bit boring because it was so easy to understand what was going to happen next, therefore it never left me on the edge.But, the good parts of this book is that the characters seem quite evolved and seem to have their act together and are well developed.This was a good fluff read that had some nice aspects such as the word building and character development, but the overall plot elements were not enjoyable Happy Reading Madelyn Normal I love the love opportunity missed then rekindled plot I had been looking forward to reading this book after I bought it based on the synopsis But, it had a lot less rekindling in the story In fact, there was less of Joe in the book than one might think So, Rebecca is married to Olly, whom she met in university They used to be best friends with Joe, but they lost touch with Joe ten years prior Rebecca and Olly live in London, and then Olly is killed in a motorcycle accident Short Normal I love the love opportunity missed then rekindled plot I had been looking forward to reading this book after I bought it based on the synopsis But, it had a lot less rekindling in the story In fact, there was less of Joe in the book than one might think So, Rebecca is married to Olly, whom she met in university They used to be best friends with Joe, but they lost touch with Joe ten years prior Rebecca and Olly live in London, and then Olly is killed in a motorcycle accident Shortly thereafter, Rebecca finds out she s pregnant with Olly s child and goes back to her hometown to live with her parents for the time being While there, she finds out that Joe has opened a wine tasting bar in town, and is very skeptical about seeing Joe again after so many years and to tell him that Olly is dead You soon find out that the trio grew apart from each other because Rebecca and Joe had a one night slip up during university and slept together, with Olly never being told or finding out Most of this book isabout dealing with deep seated family issues and loneliness, rather than a romance There s really very little romance, actually Here are my complaints I could not get invested in the book for the first third of it It took me days to get through the first 130 pages It was slow, felt tedious I didn t feel any emotions toward the characters Here her husband died a tragic motorcycle death, and her sadness fell short It felt fake, and the author didn t write it well She hadn t developed the Olly character enough in the beginning of the book for me to be sad about it either If she had fleshed out their relationshipat the beginning then maybe I would have had a pang of sadness myself even though Peterson didn t write the sadness well enough herself I enjoyed the flashbacks, and I finally got that much needed background about the characters, and began to like Olly better, but it still didn t highlight well enough why Rebecca was in love with him It took much later in the book before I felt anything for the Olly character Again, it neededfleshing out of their relationship Most of it was stiff and stale In fact, it highlightedRebecca and Joe s relationship, even though that was a one night thing I just thought it was crazy that I feltfor the best friend one night stand guy in the book than the guy that she married and loved for ten years It made me feel bad for Olly Then Olly talking to her through half of the book Not just a presenceno, actually talking to her and having conversations with her after he s dead It just felt strange to have that throw in of paranormal I got used to it, but I felt it was mostly unnecessary Peterson could have written most of that stuff in the book some other way without having her dead husband to talk to her in her mind Finally the book caught my interest mainly when they started getting into the deep seated family issues and some of the flashbacks , and I was able to finish the last two thirds of the book in a day All in all though, I thought Peterson was terrible at writing the relationships It took a lot for me to be interested in the characters relationships, and many times I had a hard time seeing why any of them were in love with each other And oh my goodness, I wanted to wring the Pippa character s neck Ridiculous and oh so childish I think the best character in the book was the blind eighty some odd year old Janet She was about the only character worth listening to What a beautiful, beautiful story This book was brilliant, an incredibly soppy love story, based around the life of Rebecca After losing her husband Olly in a motorbike crash, her life comes tumbling down around her Unsure of where to go or what to do, she decides that it s best to go back to her family home, with her mother and father Once there, Rebecca finds out that she is pregnant with Olly s baby, and as well as that, after speaking to an old, homeless man out in the street, she is What a beautiful, beautiful story This book was

beautiful story about love, loss and friendship It shows the reader that life can indeed go on, and time just keeps on ticking Is it okay to forgive and forget A very sweet, unimpressively written

Does Twitter sell books Yes, but not in any direct way I read the sample chapter and it looked interesting, so I downloaded it.This book isabout bereavement and grief than romance Becca s husband Olly dies suddenly, leaving her alone and pregnant with their first child Becca must learn to cope with her loss while adjusting to the fact that she s going to be a mother For me, the most poignant and true line in the book is when Glitz says it doesn t get easier, you just get better at dealing with it I paraphrase, but that s the gist of it.The ten years on bit is about Becca s friendship with Joe, who was also Olly s best friend when they were all at university together You get to see Joe as he was when he was in his twenties and then when he is in his thirties He is the romantic hero in the book and is very likeable.The dialogue is lively, the characters are well drawn The embedded flashbacks are a little distracting as it took me a few seconds to twig when we d got back into the present It s not light and fluffy chick lit It s about love and loss and families and friends I really enjoyed reading this book &READ PDF ↺ Ten Years On ☞ Rebecca is happily married to Olly and

root of Rebecca s issues with Joe, but when the reveal did arrive it was an exciting scene Possibly Joe could have been a bitdeveloped there s perhaps not a great deal to his character than reformed
