Can Rose allow herself the chance to love again?

My thoughts
I picked up this book on a whim and I've very glad that I did I definitely think Victoria Walters could be a new auto buy author for me. Read in one sitting and very much enjoyed. Felt similar to a Lucy Dillon novel whose books I also really enjoyed.

For me this book was a real emotional rollercoaster. It made me smile and brought me close to tears on several ocassions. I won't go into too much detail as I wouldn't want to spoil any of the details for anyone but I will say that it really captured both the raw grief felt by the main character as well as the those feelings associated with falling in love with someone new.

I very much enjoyed this book and will definitely be looking out for what the author writes next.
