A Lover of Books

‘Fix You’ by Carrie Elks

Fix You

‘Fix You’ was published by Corvus on 25th December of last year as an eBook.  A dazzling contemporary romance, I was very kindly given a copy of this novel in return for a review.

This story takes place over twelve years and is mostly set in London and New York.  It is 31st December 1999 and Hanna is helping her mum out at a New Year’s Eve party.  It is there that she meets the gorgeous Richard and the attraction between them is instant.

The clocks chime midnight signalling a brand new year and the beginning of a beautiful romance.  For Hanna it is also the start of a lovely relationship with Richard’s family, something which she comes to cherish over the following years.

Hanna and Richard seem perfect together, but life intervenes and Hanna ends up breaking Richard’s heart.  Forward to 2012 and Hanna finds herself standing in Richard’s Wall Street office.  She has something to tell him that will change his life forever.  Will they be able to sort out their issues and get back together?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘Fix You’.  A beautiful, enchanting and poignant story there was so much more to it than I thought there would be.

‘Fix You’ isn’t purely just a love story.  It is also about broken marriages, friendship, illness and death including the events of that tragic day, 9/11.  Carrie Elks has done a great job of writing this book.  My only complaint is that I felt the story jumped through the years a bit too quickly.

I give this book 4 out of 5.
