 Cute. But that is pretty much about it. It is a very interesting concept that 2 of the heroines are on different age spectrum and yet they are connected in the story. 

However Miss O'Leary writing does not connect with me as much as I like.

Que libro del bieeeeen, este es el segundo libro que leo de la autora y estoy enamora de su pluma. En este libro tenemos a Leena la cual amé y a su abuela Eileen la cual amé todavía más.

Tenemos una historia bastante bonita y conmovedora. Y no es para menos porque la autora a través de sus palabras hace que reflexiones sobre la vida.

Me hubiese gustado que los personajes secundarios se desarrollaran más. Pero a parte de esto, fue una lectura muy ligera y bonita.

An emotional and absolutely heartwarming read truly making you ponder the real meanings of life and what is important. Plenty of drama that had me on the edge of my seat every time. Beth O'Leary did it again!!

I love Eileen so much. She's the type of person who wouldn't let old age get her down. I think I would've enjoyed the book more if it was just about Eileen and her whacky escapades in London while trying to find romance. As for her granddaughter Leena, her POV definitely felt more like a subplot instead of a main storyline, even though her POVs dealt with the very serious topic of familial grief. Her character just felt a little too one-dimensional to me and she didn't have the charms that Eileen had. Leena's romantic relationships also didn't have me grinning or kicking my feet.

But hey, if you're in the mood for a wholesome, feel-good book with a very likeable grandmother, you can probably pass the time with this book.
