A Year of New Adventures - by Maddie Please

My own copy
Original Cover




















The blurb:

It’s time for Billie Summers to have an adventure … but it might not be exactly what she expected 
Billie Summers has always been quite content in her little cottage in the Cotswolds, sure half the house hasn’t been renovated, but what’s the point when it’s only her! Working part-time at her uncle’s bookshop and planning 3-4 writer retreats with her best friend allows her to pay the bills. What more could anyone want?
That is until Oliver Forest, the bad boy of the book world, turns up to one of her retreats and points out that Billie hasn’t done anything very adventurous. Couple that with her best friend falling head over heels and beginning to drift away from their Friday night wine and dinner plans, Billie is starting to wonder if it isn’t time she take control of her life.
So she starts a list: get fitted (properly) for a bra, fix up rest of house, find a ‘career’ and well, get a tattoo … Her life might just get the makeover it needs, too bad irritating and far-too-attractive for his own good, Oliver keeps showing up …
Because sometimes you need an adventure!

My Opinion:

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

I really don’t know how to start this review. At several times during reading I was tempted to just put it down, because I just didn’t find a connection to the story and the characters.

I found it really hard to get into the story. The mixture of characters was weird and confusing and parts of the storyline didn’t make any sense. I felt like certain things were not well thought out and the ending was bizarre.

The story has some cute aspects and I liked following Billie around. Unfortunately, that’s it. I really wanted to like this more, but I didn’t.
