Kaydee and Duncan started out as penpals when they were only kids. Oh those days, when we waited with bated breathe for the mail; way before the email was so ubiquitous. It was a nice walk down memory lane for me.
Fastforward the story to when Kaydee and Duncan are adults - just about to graduate from college and both have their own routes to take but somehow Kaydee manages to go to UK to see Duncan for the first time after all their exchanges over the years. The awkward first meeting to realising they have fallen in love with each other. But that's where the problems arise - they both need to be adults and have their own lives on different sides of the an ocean. How will they overcome this giant body of water?
As I read the story, some parts felt a bit awkward like there was a possibility of something else happening. Just that it never happened. This is the kind of story you take with you on a holiday to read by the pool (or in the plane, I did that) or just a nice weekend reading. While I felt that sometimes the characters seemed a little flat - it all worked out nicely in the end.
The story starts in a whirlwind; Kaydee is flying to Oxford to meet her penpal, Duncan. We are informed- very abruptly- of how the two bwcame pen pals, how long they've known each other and the catalyst for their meeting.
It's quite a bit to take in all at once but you do get used to the breakneck pacing.
It's wonderful to have a book that doesn't jump straight ro romance, and lets us see the characters realistically. We are treated to individual lives and goals through a mix of (somewhat jumpy) flashbacks and pesent-time explainations.
By the time you are halfway through the book wondering why-he-doesn't-just-kiss-her-already it happens. From that point on, the story owns you. You aren't trying to keep up with pacing (which I came to appreciate) or follow the sometimes unclear scene. You will be hanging on the edge of your seat, at three am, smiling when the two make a trip ro Sherwood Forest, and your heart will plummet when they must separate. Kaydee was only visiting, remember?!
You'll be watching them- both of them- waiting for them to be together again.
This is a debut novel, no question about that, but it's aleeady an adventure tht I love and adore
A last minute graduation gift lands her on a plane to London to meet him face to face, and she doesn't know what to expect. Is she crazy for flying to another country to meet a stranger? Or are they really strangers since they've written each other for 10 years?
Time and Chance is a fantastic debut novel from a brand spankin’ new author, and I loved every word! The characters were well-developed, you felt their relationship building, it wasn’t insta-love, not overly dramatic. It was the perfect sweet romance, and I found myself rooting for Kaydee and Duncan. A talented new author is in town, and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
