This was a humorous, romantic read that I didn't want to end. Can't wait for the next book by this author.
I was recently introduced to Jessica Redland’s writing in her novella Raving About Rhys and absolutely loved it! Upon finishing, I immediately added her to my list of go-to authors. I hope you find yourself doing the same after reading Searching for Steven!
Searching for Steven was a fun and compelling read. In hopes of never ending up alone, Sarah goes through a series of relationships. She’s on the hunt to find and marry her true love and she’s already a few years behind schedule in her big Life Plan. Her search for a soulmate takes a life-altering turn when she comes across something she thought she lost ages ago. She doesn’t trust herself to make a decision without the use of post it notes and her two best friends Clare and Elise. After the help of her post-its and a few glasses of wine and conversation, Sarah finds herself on the hunt for love and searching for Steven.
Sarah’s search brings up the main theme of the novel; what true love means and how to know when you’ve found it. It introduces the idea that just because two people are compatible on paper, doesn’t mean that they’d make a good couple and be happy in a relationship. You have to have a spark and be attracted to that person, because without the attraction, they’re just another friend or brotherly type of guy in your life. When searching for true love, one must look inside themselves to know if it’s right or if it’s wrong.
You can’t force a relationship to happen just because you’re scared you’ll end up alone. That’s no way to live; you have to allow it to happen naturally. You have to be honest with yourself if you’re in it because you’re afraid of ending up alone, or if you’re in it because you can’t imagine your life without this other person. You need to be in a relationship with someone that makes you the best version of you and loves you for who you are, not who they want you to be. How do you know when someone is The One? When you can’t imagine your life without them and that even if you can’t be with them, then you’d rather not be in a relationship at all.
This book was filled with lessons of life, love and happiness, but also instances of tragedy and moving on after tough times. Another theme that presented itself in this story was the idea that things aren’t always as they seem and sometimes they’re exactly what we didn’t know we were looking for. There were a few major twists and turns that truly surprised me and the ending wasn’t at all what I was expecting, it was so much more. Thank you for penning a truly fabulous and compelling novel Jessica!
I knew honesty was the foundation of a good relationship, but these were only little white lies, weren’t they?
‘I know you won’t want to hear this, but you need to get over this ridiculous obsession with getting married; it’s not the answer to life, the universe and everything you know.’
‘This is you we’re talking about. The girl with the Life Plan. The girl who uses post-it notes to make the key decisions in her life.’
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
Sarah’s sweet and beloved aunt Kay has given Sarah her flower shop. She wants to travel around the world and Sarah is a gifted florist. All of a sudden Sarah is living her dream. She has a nice, new home, a great business and amazing friends. The only thing that’s missing is Steven. The internet is the place where she’ll be able to find him. Sarah meets with several Stevens, but none of them make her feel the way she feels when she’s with Nick. Only Nick isn’t Steven and to make things more complicated her ex-boyfriend shows up to win her back, what is she supposed to do and will she find her happily ever after?
I liked this book so much. It’s a wonderful, heartwarming story. It’s perfect for anyone who believes in love or who wants to become a believer. Sarah is such a great heroine, she’s lovely, but she’s also scared and tends to run away when things get too awkward. That puts her in dire situations every now and then. She has quite a few lessons to learn before she’s ready for real love. Searching for Steven is a book that will put a smile on your face and happiness in your heart. It’s a definite must-read, because of the original story, the sympathetic characters, the beautiful setting and most of all the magical feeling of true love. I liked the creative aspect and the quest to find the one. This is a lovely feel-good book and one of the best romantic stories I’ve read in quite a while. It’s a light, cheerful quality read that I enjoyed very much.
Sarah is offered her aunt’s flower shop, and is heading toward a new life – and, as expected she is excited. But new places, new opportunities and one old piece of information. An old reading from years ago resurfaces, and Sarah realizes that every single prediction on the list has come true. But one. She’s going to meet the man of her dreams… and his name is Steven.
From few to no Stevens, soon they are coming out of the woodwork…or cleaning the windows. With the need to find her Steven, two best friends who hate each other on the best days, and plenty of friends, new experiences and more than a few laughs.
A perfect sweet treat with a cup of tea, Redland’s writing makes readers smile: everyone has a friend like Sarah (or should) and wants to find the joy in a new moment.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
