Happy almost long weekend!

Excited to share with you today my review of this super fun book! 🚍

Things Are Looking Up

What if what you really need is right there in front of you, if you just take a moment to look up?

Milly has been waiting for this moment forever and finally it’s just an hour away – an interview with Vogue magazine and the opportunity to get her Louboutin-clad foot in the door.  There’s just one problem – totally engrossed in her mobile phone, Milly doesn’t see the bus that is fast approaching – until it’s too late…

When Milly next opens her eyes, the consequences of her accident become clear. Everything she has worked for and dreamed of suddenly feels out of reach. But there is one bright spot on her horizon – the reappearance of her ex Jed, in all of his six-foot-four, broad-shouldered glory, with the most piercing ice blue eyes Milly ever saw.

Once used to working in a whirlwind, Milly now has the chance to reconsider how to live. Will she rush back to the treadmill, get her head down and back to business, or is there a whole other life waiting for her, if she’ll just look up to see it? 

‘Read yourself happy’ with Maxine Morrey’s latest uplifting, page-turning, heart-warming romance, guaranteed to brighten up your day.

My Thoughts

This book was SO FUN! Sometimes it takes getting hit by a bus to make you take a minute to look up and appreciate things around you. In the case of this book it was a literal bus that Milly got hit by that landed her in the hospital in a coma with multiple injuries. Lucky for Milly and us she made a full recovery. She also came to realize that she had been so consumed with her career that she had pushed everything else out of her life. Her family, her friends, the love of her life. Fortunately Millies unfortunate encounter with a bus let her to start looking up from her phone and making some real connections. Milly was a great likable character who just seem to have been caught up in the rat race of a competitive fashion business. Her brother Harry and sister-in-law Ava were a great support system and I loved how there for Milly they were. And then there’s Jed, Milly‘s ex who had been the first to be called about the accident because his name was still on her emergency contact card. Jed was perhaps a little good to be true, kind, caring, smart, handsome, wealthy, and extremely supportive. I was like OK Milly if you won’t have him I will! 🙋🏻‍♀️ There was some definite Romance peppered into the story but I’d say it was more of the story of Milly rediscovering and reinventing herself.
