Millie and Joe both grew up on the Moors in Northumbria (northern England region) but dreamed of moving to London and being successful. While Millie pursued London despite the setbacks that seemed to make it as difficult as possible, Joe was supported by his family every step of the way.
As a writer, Millie’s security in London is only as good as her last piece of work. And recently that’s been questionable. Joe on the other hand works in a more solid industry where contracts often run longer than initially intended but working for a company that contracts him out means he could be sent somewhere other than London at the end of any project.
Millie, literally, walks into Joe and has such a sweet meet-cute she has to include meeting him in her next weekly column. She just needs to make it funnier.
As it turns out, readers of her column love the meet cute and want more of Joe which means Millie’s now on a mission to find Joe again even though she has no idea what train he was getting when she bumped into him, if he regularly gets the train on a Thursday or Friday (if at all) and if there’s any chance of seeing him again.
I smashed through this on holidays (while recovering from being horribly ill, who needs that on a holiday?) enjoying almost every minute of it. The little bit’s I didn’t enjoy so much are the bit’s you’re not meant to, because they add drama. So, it was totally fine!
Not only were both characters highly cute and sweet, but they also had depth in their flaws as they tried to find a way to work together. Since I’m not usually a fan of sweet romances, that depth and complexity added the little spicy-ness I needed to truly enjoy a romance set on the train lines of England.
I think the only thing that confused me a little as I was reading it was how the train systems worked. Sometimes if they didn’t get their train it meant they’d be without a ticket for a later train, but other times it was fine if they just waited for a later one?
That little detail probably wouldn’t be so obvious if I didn’t pretty much read the entire book in one sitting, but I did so I noticed it. If those tiny little things don’t bother you as you read your latest romance fix, then you’ll be totally fine to enjoy a sweet but complex romance.
