Twice In A Lifetime Cover

Amelia might have met The One. But is she twenty years too late?

After her husband left her out of the blue, the only relationship 45-year-old Amelia Simpson has enjoyed recently is with Nutella and Pinot Grigio. While her 8-year-old twin boys, Jasper and Rupert, keep her busy, Amelia dreams of a life more than washing muddy rugby kits and weekly chats with best friends Sian and Jamie.

Amelia needs some magic back in her life – but magic seems in short supply in her small Welsh village. So when she finds the phone number that was given to her twenty years ago by a handsome stranger in New York, Amelia wonders whether he might be The One That Got Away.

But when Sian takes matters into her own hands, launching a worldwide hunt to find the handsome stranger Amelia met outside Tiffany’s two decades ago, Amelia finds herself on a flight to the Big Apple to reconnect with her ‘Perfect Pierre’.

But as the two explore the sights of NYC, has Amelia reconnected with The One? Or will she discover that the sparkle she was missing is actually closer to home?

A funny, relatable romcom about second chances that fans of Kathryn Freeman and Sophie Ranald will love.

My Review

The idea of finding love no matter the age, and no matter the experience we have had in our life – either marriage, children,… – we do deserve to be happy. To find the happiness even if it take us on an adventure around the world. That’s something that actually made me excited about the book.

In this story we follow Amelia, after the end of her marriage, going on a journey to find a man she met one time many years ago. Will she find him? Will the sparks and interest still be there? Will she truly fall in love with him or will life give her an even crazier and different path?

I don’t want to tell you about the plot since I want you guys to have fun with the story and discovering what will happen in the adventure and in this new chapter of Amelia’s life.

I did love that we had a mother, because that always makes me wonder about my mom and I end up connecting with the character in a “family” way. Plus, I loved that she had a support system and I loved Amelia’s interactions with her kids and her friends, as well as everyone around her. I had fun with the book because of those connections between the characters and the backgrounds they had and their motivations and goals.

Overall, I enjoyed it. It was this romcom kind of story. And although I usually don’t like all movies in that genre, when it comes to books I quite like them. They are always full of fun moments. In this book it also had many relatable scenes and thoughts, and let’s not forget it was just a perfect story to dream, relax and just what I needed.
