Their love story started with goodbye…

‘We’ll meet again at St Pancras station, a year from today. If we’re meant to be together, we’ll both be there. If we’re not, it was never meant to be . . .’

Phoebe and Sam meet by chance at St Pancras station. Heading in opposite directions, both seeking their own adventures, meeting the love of their lives wasn’t part of the plan. So they make a promise: to meet again in the same place in twelve months’ time if they still want to be together.

But is life ever as simple as that?

This is a story of what-ifs and maybes – and how one decision can change your life forever…

Review 2017

Phoebe Jones is off on the trip of a lifetime, a year out travelling. Her friends don’t think she will go through with it, heck, even Phoebe doesn’t think she can go through with it, that’s why she arrived stupidly early at St Pancras station to await her train to Paris, so nothing can make her change her mind.

She didn’t expect there to be a delay with her train, well all trains heading from her station actually, a four-hour delay. This is not good, four hours gives Phoebe time to think and thinking is bad when you’re not sure you can go through with your plans.

That is until she meets Sam. Sam is a musician on his way to Scotland. His train is delayed too and after a few joking moments between the pair, they settle in a cafe awaiting the trains to start running again. What they didn’t expect was for fate to intervene and for them to fall for one another in just a few hours.

With plans already made, the pair decide that they both should continue on their journey’s but if they believe the spark is real then they are to meet again in a one year back at the station. With twelve months to get through and plenty of travelling, will the two meet again or was this just a fleeting moment never to happen again?

The Day We Meet Again is a beautiful book told in the first person and dual narrative via alternative chapters, clearly labelled. I’m a believer in love comes when you least expect it, or when you are not looking for it and neither Phoebe or Sam were looking for love that fateful morning. They both were setting out on journey’s of a life-time, Phoebe travelling and visiting places in her favourite book, Sam to discover more about his father who left when he was just a child.

The book was engaging and had me glued to the pages. Both of the main characters were likeable and interesting and their stories heartfelt, although I enjoyed Phoebe’s chapters slightly more as I loved reading about the places she visited. Neither had a straightforward twelve months, there were plenty of hiccups within them and I was keeping everything crossed that they would meet up again as they seemed perfect together.

I was so engrossed in the story that I read it in just one sitting as I didn’t want to put the book down, this certainly doesn’t happen often to me. The Day We Meet Again is simply an amazing read and if you are a fan of romance novels then this is one to add to your list.
