When I searched amongst the books on offer on Netgalley website I came upon this stunning cover and eagerly click away to see the book blurb, and I was utterly smitten with Pieces of My Life. What an inspiring debut novel by Rachel Dann!
Kirsty is happy. Really, she is. After five years with her boyfriend, Harry, she’s ready to take things to the next step and turn that spare room into a little nursery. And she thought Harry was too.
Only, it turns out that Harry’s ‘big news’ is actually not that he wants to try for a baby, but that he wants to travel to South America – with Kirsty! She’ll just have to trust that after their trip of a lifetime, Harry will be ready to settle down for good.
Arriving in hot, steamy Ecuador it soon becomes clear that Harry is hiding something. Something that he’s been hiding for years. And as Kirsty’s dreams are at risk of shattering, she begins to pick up the pieces of the life that she’s put off for so long…
There is a lot happening between the pages of Pieces of My Life. The story is based around Kirsty, who is so ready to start the next chapter of her life with her long -term boyfriend, Harry. When Harry drops an unexpected bookshelf one night, but Kirsty seems to recover pretty quickly and gets on with planning their rather spontaneous adventure.
Kirsty is a very inspiring, smart and outgoing character that makes you love her from the first page. I got quite excited for Kirsty and could wait to find out what will she and Harry get up to when they land in Ecuador.
Little did I know I will be immersing myself in one huge eye-opening adventure that will take me right in the heart of Ecuadorian life.
While Kirsty is thoroughly enjoying herself making new friends, volunteering for a worthy cause that had my me truly appreciated my freedom and lifestyle Harry is getting more mysterious by the day. Kirsty and Harry's relationship is growing distant as they are both getting used to the vibrant South American culture. I like the way Kirsty was gradually starting to focus on her life and her priorities for the first time since she met Harry.
The setting of this book is truly magnificent, mesmerising and very inspiring. I loved getting to know all the supporting characters in this amazing story.
Rachel Dann created the excellent and deeply inspiring cast of characters that I will remember for a long time, especially Naomi who tugged at my heartstrings as I wished her happy ending.
Pieces of My Life is a fanatic debut novel that has ticked all my boxes of an emotional, romantic and mysterious read.
Escape to the luscious American landscape this summer with a story that will make you jump on your computer and search for your next holidays.
A huge thank you to HQ for approving my request to review this book in exchange for a fair review!
