Book Review - The Bucket List To Mend A Broken Heart by Anna Bell

THE BOOK

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Publisher: Zaffre
Publication Date: 10 March 2016

"Abi's barely left her bed since Joseph, the love of her life, dumped her, saying they were incompatible. 

When Joseph leaves a box of her possessions on her doorstep, she finds a bucket list of ten things she never knew he wanted to do. 

Will completing the action-packed list - no easy challenge for the naturally timid Abi - be the way to win back her man? Or might Abi just have a surprise in store...?"

MY REVIEW

It didn't take long to find myself absorbed in the storyline and giggling away at Abi's actions. The author had a humorous writing style which pulled me along easily and pleasantly.

The thread of romance running throughout was a little predictable but enjoyable all the same - it doesn't always matter if I know where a storyline is headed as long as I enjoy the journey!

Watching Abi grow in confidence was one of my favourite parts of this book, I love characters who push themselves and try to conquer their fears.

Being based in Portsmouth, which isn't too far from where we live, the storyline held a feeling of familiarity for me, particularly the Spinnaker Tower scenes. We have visited the tower a couple of times so I know exactly how tall it is - what Abi was planning on doing took some serious guts!

The ending left me with a big grin on my face, it was just what I had hoped for.

The Bucket List To Mend A Broken Heart was a lighthearted, refreshing read that was a pleasure to pick up.
