Review – Fix You – Carrie Elks

Summary:

You’ve found the one, but what if life has other plans?

London, 31st December 1999
At a party to toast the new millennium, Hanna meets Richard. He is a gorgeous, wealthy New Yorker. She is a self-assured, beautiful Londoner with no interest in clean-cut American men. They are from different worlds and have nothing in common… except for their instant – and mutual – attraction to one another.
As the clocks chime midnight it is a new year and the beginning of a wonderful romance.

New York, 12th May 2012
Hanna, the girl who broke Richard’s heart, walks into his Wall Street office – and back into his life – to reveal an explosive secret.

He was sure they were meant to be together forever, but she broke his heart so completely the last time, can he find a way to let her mend the pieces?

Warm, witty and a perfect piece of modern romance, Fix You is a love story to melt your heart.

Review:

I’ve been waiting for this book to re-release so I could read it. So, when I did finally get to it, I managed it in one sitting. I was completely sucked into the world of Hanna and Richard.

Elks has masterfully woven a story that spans many years without it feeling rushed or that it drags at all. This takes real skill, and she makes it seem easy. Usually, when books cover many years, they can often lose momentum, but not once does this happen with Fix You.

I have to admit, more than once, I wanted to hit both Hanna and Richard. So many missed opportunities and silly, petty disagreements, but on the whole they were very likeable. They made mistakes, yet neither of them was perfect. The mistakes, and lessons learned from them, are realistic, and are things I could imagine myself or my friends doing.

I am slowly becoming rather a big fan of Elks’ work, and wait with trepidation to further releases from her.
