It Should Have Been Me By Phillipa Ashley

I bought this book the same time as Nell Dixon’s new Little Black Dress book and thought it sounded good. I sat down to flick through it, intending to read Nell’s book first.  However, I couldn’t put it down and ended up reading it in two days. Here is the synopsis:

When Carrie’s fiancé Huw suddenly calls off their wedding, and she finds out he’s marrying another woman, she’s devastated. Desperate to get away, Carrie jumps at her best friend Rowena’s suggestion of a road trip in her VW camper van. But when Rowena has to pull out and Matt Landor, an old friend of Huw’s, ends up filling the breach, she’s not so sure. Will fate take the pair on an altogether different journey?

I have to say, I couldn’t find anything wrong with this book. The characters were great, the plot hung together perfectly and it had a great ending.  The hero and heroine had great chemistry and the sub-characters were funny and real and interesting. It was perfect.

I’m not really one of those people who is good at writing reams of stuff in a review (unless it was a poor book). So all I’d say is go out and get a copy of this book NOW! You won’t regret it. It was a pleasure to read. Thank you Phillipa Ashley.
