Review: Saving The Day by Katie Fforde

 She has only one chance to turn her life around...

Allie is bored with her job and starting to wonder whether she even likes her boyfriend, Ryan.

The high point in her day is passing a café on her walk home from work. It is the sort of place where she'd really like to work.

Then one day she sees as advert on the door: assistant wanted. But before she can land her dream job, Allie knows she must achieve two things:

1. Learn to cook
2. End her relationship with Ryan, especially as through the window of the café, she spies a waiter who looks much more like her type of man.

And when she learns that the café is in danger of closing, Allie knows she must do her very best to save the day ...

Review: Oh it was so lovely to be back in a Katie Fforde book, it really has been too long since I awarded myself that treat. When this quick reads title came out I knew it was the perfect excuse to be back in this author's world again and boy was it a good time. 

This book is just the antithesis of heartwarming. It has all the ingredients of a great quick romance read: food, self discovery and a nasty boyfriend you need to get rid of. I loved the message of this book that you can do anything you set your mind to and that if you put in the effort you can make changes to your life at any time. 

The main character in this book is just 20. I can't remember the last time I read a romance involving a younger protagonist that wasn't YA. I feel like this allowed me to really root for her throughout the book and also allow her come mistakes that I wouldn't necessarily allow an older heroin in a romance novel. It was great seeing someone so early on in their life be so driven and so determined to make a change. 

This was such a treat of a book. I do have a vlog of me reading this and reacting to it as I read it so if you want to read along with me-do check that out!
