Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Trouble With Words!
This was such an adorable, fun read! It's told from both Annabel and Dan's perspective and it flips back and forth each chapter. The premise was cute, Annabel is a widow who wants to have a baby and is looking for a sperm donor and Dan is happily single but his mother really wants him to settle down. It's not as predictable as I had assumed it may be based on the blurb, the author had quite a few tricks up her sleeve that kept me engaged.
I really liked Annabel and couldn't help but feel for her. Being widowed so young must be devastating and she still managed to have a positive outlook on life. Dan was a pretty clueless guy but he did have his charms, though there were times I wanted to smack some sense into him! My favorite character was actually a secondary one and that was Dan's mom. She was hilarious and brought so much life to the story. She's a little troublemaker and was such a vivacious addition to a sweet story.
This was a really fast paced read, a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Despite it's somewhat heavy subject matter it was lighthearted though it did have it's emotional moments. Tullett has a very descriptive, vivid writing style and discusses the characters feelings and emotional outlook quite a bit. It was really heartfelt and touching, a truly fun read.
Overall rating: 4/5
Thanks to the publisher for my review copy.
