We were on a break by Lindsey Kelk
Is it a break? Or is it a blip? 'You've just had a holiday,' I pointed out, trying not to yawn. 'Wasn't that enough of a break?' 'I don't mean that kind of break.' There's nothing worse than the last day of holiday. Oh wait, there is. When what should have been a proposal turns into a break, Liv and Adam find themselves on opposite sides of the life they had mapped out. Friends and family all think they're crazy; Liv throws herself into work - animals are so much simpler than humans - and Adam tries to get himself out of the hole he's dug. But as the short break becomes a chasm, can they find a way back to each other? Most importantly, do they want to?
I really enjoyed this book. I don't read huge amounts of adult books but I do like adult contemporary like this and am increasingly seeking them out.
I liked this because the story was sweet and funny and I really like how real the main characters were in it. I could really relate to Liv and everything she was going through as she muddled through trying to sort of a whole host of misunderstandings which lead to a rough patch in her relationship with Adam. The story is very British set in a little village and I loved that about it. I also loved that Liv was part of a couple where she was the more successful one.
This is my first encounter with a Lindsey Kelk novel and certainly won't be my last.
