Review: Three Men and a Maybe (Short Story) by Katey Lovell

It’s the age-old saying. You wait all day for a bus, and then three come along at once. But proposals? That’s just ridiculous. And yet, on New Year’s Eve, as the countdown finishes and the whole pub erupts in celebrations, Cerys finds herself staring at her ex-fiancé, Ricky. Who just so happens to be kneeling on the floor, ring in hand, asking her to marry him. Again.
And if that weren’t enough, hot barman Angelo, and longtime friend Huw also decide to pop the question. At the exact same time.
Three men, two real contenders, but just one choice. What on earth will she do?

Review: This was such a fun Christmas read. If you're looking for something to read during this busy time of year, you have it right here. Because this short story is under 60 pages, you can read it in one delicious sitting. But what it lacks in pages, it certainly doesn't lack in content. This little beauty has all the features of a full-length novel and will definitely leave you wanting to know what happens next!

This book sees Cerys on New Year's eve and, as you can see from the blurb, she is the recipient of not one but 3 proposals that night. We get to learn a lot about each of these three men and Cerys herself as well as her best friends. We learn as much about her in 59 pages as you would do in a full length novel and I loved spending this time with her. 

The structure of the story is that we flashback to when Cerys met each of these potential suitors and we get a little insight into what went down with all of the men. I really liked that, although the story is set at literally 5 minutes to midnight, we actually get to see this story unfold over the course of 13 years or so, so not quite the short story it seems to be at first. 

I loved the structure, I loved the characters and I absolutely need to know what happens next to this fab main character. Katey Lovell, please continue this story!
