Format: Paperback
The plot is fairly common: boy and girl meet in a school rock concert and fall in love, and somehow, don't stay in touch. Then by chance, meet again 17 years later in a remote town in Yorkshire, immediately recognize each other, find that they feel the same intensity of love as before. The book dips in and out of the school years (17 years ago) to the present. So far so good. But after this the plot thickens and becomes of a mud-like consistency... there are a series of searching for each other travelling up and down between London and Yorkshire, and an out-of-character fling the hero has with a catty co-worker, the ensuing jealousy and accusations of "you lied to me!", the heroine's sleep-walking incidents and related amateur psychology, her bad relationship with her divorced parents, and her relationship with a wise old lady who shaped her youth. Of course all ends well and the hero and heroine get together in the end as expected. Excruciatingly drawn out to 430-odd pages. Perhaps could have been written in 250 pages or so, cutting out all the irrelevant details?

This book being in the genre of "light and easy" chick lit, is trying to do too much outside of its scope. The author tries to impart tangential and inconsequential knowledge on music and appreciation of music through the hero, and of jewellery making and rare gem stones through the heroine. The history of a rare gem stone called tanzanite is repeated in multiple places in the book. The heroine is even named Petra (Greek for "stone") Flint (stone again!). The style is not the easy flowing style I have come to expect of this kind of book - the sentences and analogies too contrived for my liking.

Format: Paperback
Petra Flint is a jeweler living in a shabby flat in London. She is quite happily creating her beautiful wearable works of art and semi-happy with her emotionally stunted boyfriend, Rob. They are polar opposites in most respects but Petra seems determined to find the knight in shining armor behind Rob's distant demeanor and seemingly nonchalant attitude towards their relationship. One bone of contention between them: Petra's sleepwalking habits which cause her to do a number of highly embarrassing and sometimes dangerous things such as locking herself out of buildings in the buff, urinating on the floor or heading head first onto the corner of a fireplace when she trips over furniture. She has no idea why she sleepwalks and no one, from doctors to her divorced and distant parents, can help her figure out why.

North of London on the moors of Yorkshire finds Arlo Savidge, teacher at Roseberry Hall, a school for boys. He has been hiding away behind the school's great gates and trying desperately to forget something terrible from his past. For the past five years, since he was last in a relationship with his fiance Helen and since the tragedy that he refuses to speak of occured, he has sworn off women to keep the feelings of love far away. If the feelings of love and passion are kept hidden, the grieving and guilt cannot find him. His body refuses to let him off the hook fully, however, and he finds himself an insomniac. While he makes friends with his coworkers at the school he never truly lets anyone into his heart and feels quite satisfied just being a teacher of music, his great passion.

These two people, living very different lives, are connected delicately by a shared history going back seventeen years to when they were both in school.

Format: Paperback
Pillow Talk is a tender romance. It tells about two adults who were in love once and who found their love again. They are not perfect and they don't consider themselves be perfect either. This novel is set in London. There is a jewelry designer called Petra Flint living. She hears a song on the radio written by Arlo Savidge. As it happens Arlo hears a song that reminds him of her. They were in love 17 years ago when they were teenagers. They meet again and there is still the spark in between them. They start seeing each others but they don't tell all of their secrets to each other because of their fear of being rejected.

The author Freya North describes admirably the contemporary London and lifestyles as well as the emotions flying between these two adults.
I would recommend this book to all romance hungry readers. The book does not have a fast pace and therefore, if you are looking for a quick action then this is not the right book for you.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Meg @ A Bookish Affair on August 27, 2011
Format: Paperback
I always love a good story, especially when there seems to be a little twist of fate. North spins a good story about two people destined to find each other again after many years apart. Petra has sleepwalked almost all of her life. She can't figure out why she does it. It's been detrimental to her and to her relationships. Then she runs into Arlo, her high school sweetheart. Is the timing better for them?

There were a few things that weren't necessarily bad about the book but still had me doing a bit of a double take. For instance (and I'll try not to give away too much), I was way confused about the thing that is keeping Petra sleepwalking. It seemed to come out of nowhere and was just really weird and almost out of place.

One thing that I really liked about the book was North's writing. She has a very quick wit and the ability to make me laugh (or rather chortle) out loud. The book is definitely quirky and not your run of the mill romance, which I definitely appreciated. I kind of found myself wondering what happened to Petra and Arlo once the book ended. I think that if you find yourself wondering about the characters after the book ends, it means the characters were pretty awesome.

Bottom line: Want quirky romance? Here's your book!
