Gemma Roman writes very well. The sense of place shines though and Cornwall becomes as much a characters as the Alice, Mia and Kai.
This is Alice's story. She's always been happy to stay in her Cornish home town, happy to miss out on university to stay with her boyfriend Kai. She's assistant manager at a local bar and that keeps her busy; she's pretty happy with life. Kai is a freelance photographer and often has assignments that take him to other cities for a while. Whilst Alice loves Kai, she's happy for him to travel and enjoys spending time on her own. Kai, on the other hand, would like more from their relationship and has asked Alice to marry him more than once.
Whilst Kai is off on a job in Manchester, Alice's life turns into something of a whirlwind. She is swept off her feet by a newcomer; this is an unexpected and surprising affair that has long-term implications for Alice and Kai.
The author then takes the story a few years into the future where we meet both Alice and Kai; older, wiser and in very different situations. That attraction is still there and it's time to face up to this.
The author has created a cast of believable, if not always likeable characters who feel realistic and true. She has examined the complexities of relationships very well, and whilst this is only a short book, it has real emotional depth.
A quick read that I finished in one evening, but a very satisfying one. I look forward to reading more from this series.
