Review: Unexpected Lessons in Love by Lucy Dillon

What happens when 'I do' turns into 'I don't know'?
Jeannie always wanted to fall in love, and now she’s finally got the whirlwind romance she dreamed of. Dan’s gorgeous, he’s a successful young vet, and he flew her to New York and proposed on Brooklyn Bridge. Jeannie has to remind herself this is actually her life. It seems too perfect, too magical, to be real. Yet it is.
But now she’s on her way to the wedding she can’t shake off the tight sensation crushing her chest. Is it just nerves . . . or is this all happening a bit toofast?
Jeannie has one last chance to shout, ‘Stop!’ But just as she grabs it, a twist of fate throws everything she knows into the air like confetti. What Jeannie learns about Dan, about her own heart, and about the power of love itself, will change her world for ever . . .

Review: I absolutely loved this book and was hooked from the first page. I loved getting to know Jeannie and her life. I loved seeing her grow and develop over the course of this novel and it was just an absolute delight at every turn. If you like very character driven books and you like books with lovely dogs in then Lucy Dillon is the author for you. 

I just absolutely loved how this book unfurled itself with the turns of every page, or the start of every chapter. I ended up listening to the audiobook of this one and it was incredibly well done. I think if I had had a physical copy I might have been tempted to flick forwards to find out more information about the mysterious Dan. 

Jeannie was such a lovely character to spend this book with. She is a genuine person who is a lot like you and me. She wants to see the good in people and she wants to make the right call. I am so pleased with the friends that she made during this novel, they are the right people to be in her life. I also really liked the relationship she had with her father in this book, it is great to see a positive relationship between a father and a daughter, they're not all broken. 

The subject matter of this novel is also awesome, showing people that relationships aren't always easy but sometimes nothing dramatic needs to happen in order for them to either become stronger or end. I really loved the message that this book puts out there, especially as someone who has had to cancel a wedding. The dogs in this book are of course awesome as well, I loved their involvement in the whole plot. I did shed a couple of tears where the dogs and their setting was concerned so be prepared for that.

This book was definitely up lifting and has such a well rounded plot with characters you're going to love getting to know. I enjoyed every moment of it and I am sure you will too!
