“As Luck Would Have It” Review

Hello Friends!

I hope you guys are having a good start of August. Today I bring youthe first review of the month.

As Luck Would Have It“, written by Zoe May, is a Romantic Comedy novel, published 4th July 2019, by HQ Digital, HarperCollins.

I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Zoe May for the eCopy of this book and for allowing me to join in the fun and being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.


As Luck Would Have It Cover

Natalie Jackson might keep up appearances on Instagram, but in reality her fiancé has just jilted her after the birth of their baby and she’s moved back in with her mum. Life isn’t exactly going to plan!

So when she enters the village raffle for the holiday of a lifetime, she thinks she has no chance of winning. But her name is pulled out – and, as luck would have it, so is a ticket bought by her childhood nemesis: Will Brimble.

Surely a romantic holiday for two is the worst idea ever…right?

Author Bio

As Luck Would Have It Photo

Zoe May is an author of romantic comedies. Zoe has dreamt of being a novelist since she was a teenager. She worked in journalism and copywriting in London before writing her debut novel, Perfect Match. Having experienced the London dating scene first hand, Zoe could not resist writing a novel about dating, since it seems to supply endless amounts of weird and wonderful material!

Perfect Match was one of Apple’s top-selling books of 2018. It was also shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s Joan Hessayon Award, with judges describing it as ‘a laugh out loud look at love and self-discovery – fresh and very funny’.

As well as writing, Zoe enjoys walking her dog, painting and, of course, reading! She adores animals and if she’s not taking a photo of a vegan meal, she’s probably tweeting about the dairy industry. She is half Greek and half Irish and can make a mean baklava. Zoe has a thing for horror films, India, swimming, hip hop and Radiohead. She has an encyclopaedic knowledge of handbags having spent several years working in fashion copywriting and could probably win Mastermind if this was her specialist subject!

My Review

This isn’t the first book I have read of Zoe May, and I enjoyed it.

I love stories that sweet and fun, that have a good amount of romance and humor, because those are the books that are perfect for a sunny day. A good escape from the daily life we are having.

As we follow Natalie through this adventure, we are taken on a journey. Especially with all the hilarious moments and that takes Natalie and Will on the trip. I loved it!

I also loved the interactions. The fact that Natalie and Will already knew one another, gave the story a deeper understanding and the relationship was real. Which is fantastic because I love when there is a background story and have to learn about it as we read page after page.

Overall, it was funny and sweet, a good book for a summer day, and if you enjoy rom-coms this may be a good book for you.
