Today I am so excited to be reviewing One Book Away by Debbie Ioanna. Thank you to Zoe-Lee from https://zooloosbookdiary.co.uk/zooloos-blog-tours for organising this tour and to Debbie Ioanna for a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
She’s just a girl, standing in front of a bookcase, looking for her happily every after…
Charlotte’s love of romantic literature and ‘happily ever after’ is a far cry from reality. Putting her own ambitions to one side and settling with her university sweetheart, it has not been a decade of bliss. Changes need to be made, and quick.
At a book signing for her favourite author, she meets the handsome and chivalrous Ross. He immediately charms her and wants to see her again. Could this be the romantic, happy ending she was looking for?
Debbie brings us her latest romantic comedy where dating and new romances warm our hearts… and give us a little bit of dating fear.
I always adore Debbie’s books regardless of which genre she is ‘dabbling in’ but I especially love her romance novels as they are just so real and her characters are always relatable.
One Book Away is a one sitting read and a shortish novella meaning it’s perfect for an hour of escapism on a wintery afternoon.
I loved the character of Charlotte and I believe most women could identify with her. She’s a huge fan of romantic fiction but in reality she’s unhappy with her life, herself and her romantic interest until she meets Ross. She represents the reality for a lot of women out there.
I haven’t been single since I was 21 and the thought of ever having to negotiate the dating scene these days terrifies me (really hope I never need to). It’s just so confusing and not always real. Debbie really brings this to life in One Book Away and I love how things that are often portrayed as romantic or what women really want etc. are explored as things that are more likely to make us uncomfortable, nervous etc. There were several parts that made me chuckle and I couldn’t put it down.
This is a great book for a cosy quick read. It’s so light and humorous you can pick it up when it suits of devour in one sitting like I did. Highly recommend for a lovely hour when you have some peace and quiet.
