Just the Two of Us – by Georgie Capron

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Lucy is the wrong side of thirty and tormented daily by the idyllic family pictures cluttering up her Facebook newsfeed. All of her friends seem to be getting married and having babies, and yet here she is, resolutely single, and no prospect of creating the perfect family she's always dreamt of.

How she longs for it to be her turn.

But finding love is complicated, and as time passes she wonders if there might just be another way to make her dreams come true. Is she brave enough to go it alone, or is the fantasy of 'baby makes three' just too precious to give up on?

Funny, warm, and a story for our time, Just the Two of Us will make you laugh and cry, and remind you never to give up on love.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Lucy is single, but longs to be in a relationship, to get married and to have kids. All the friends around her are starting a family and she is kind of stuck. We get to accompany Lucy on her way to find love. Of course we get to meet her friends and her family as well, which gave the story a fresh touch.

Lucy is a very relatable and down to earth character. The book is full of funny and fresh scenes, described in a really vivid way.

I had quite a hard time getting into this story and I never really did. The storyline, even though it had a logic flow, progressed way to fast for me. From meeting a guy, to dating, to being in a serious relationship etc. Everything went so quickly and I feel some things were only touched briefly, which is a pity. The details and the depth was clearly missing for me.

I really wanted to love this story more, because I like the idea behind it and some scenes were so refreshing, funny and cute.
