If I Never Met You, by Mhairi McFarlane

hopeful medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


After nearly 20 years of being a couple, Dan breaks up with Laurie quite unexpectedly.  After some uncomfortable revelations, the heartbroken Laurie tries to figure out what went wrong. What is worse, Laurie and Dan work at the same law firm which runs like a rumor mill.  When she and Jamie Carter - notorious womanizer - get stuck in an elevator together, and unlikely team and plan is formed that benefits them both.

It started off very slow but once it got going is was predictable but in the best kind of way. Love the realism of the dialogue.  There were a few things that seemed not needed in the story or seemed like filler, but it didn’t distract too much!

I liked it!!
