Jane is on a mission of self-discovery. Having lost the love of her life in a horrific motorcycle accident on their wedding day, she’s been a shell of the woman she once was. Learning to live without Blake is going to take more than just waking up each morning. So, she leaves for England to return to the place it all ended, in the hopes of figuring out how to negotiate life on her own. What she doesn’t expect, is to meet Harry Tindal, and for the hunky Brit to present her with a surprising proposition.
Harry never intended to approach the red-haired beauty when she stepped into the pub, but the music drew his feet her way and before he knew it, he’d struck up a conversation with the fascinating woman, only to discover they were on similar missions. Trying to escape his painful past, Harry decides to step out of his comfort zone and invite Jane to join him for a fortnight of no regrets.“No sex. No histories. No awkward conversations. Just two people living life to the max for two weeks. Then we say adios, thanks for a good time, and go our separate ways.”
Jane can’t resist, and the couple embark on a journey of faith, that soon turns into something neither of them expected. As hearts unfurl, truths rise to the surface and the couple must decide if they’re able to risk love once more and hand their hearts to someone new.
A story about death and dealing with the journey of life after a heartbreak. It is also about finding and cherishing love that have stumbled upon them along the way.
Harry and Jane are definitely meant to be. Even if it is a coincidence, the odds of it happening is just too much to bear with!
I love how spontaneous Harry is and how he would just drop everything to be with the woman he loves. And Jane, her fiancé’s death has definitely taken a toll on her to live again. But I am happy and proud that she decided to embrace life instead of mopping around and being depressed all the time. Alas, life is all about second chances and grabbing opportunities that you might never know when it might appear again in your life.
I really enjoyed their impromptu trip across Europe and crossing off one by one, the adventures in Jane’s bucket list. It was just them – in the moment – without a care in the world even their expenditures that they’re just showering away.
I love this story, even though it is more depressing to read than the rest of the Songbird Novels, I still adore it!
