Katherine herself is a person who was Always confident in what she was doing and now she has to reinvent herself all over again there are some cracks showing. She is very hung up on the astrological writings of her idol Mark. Personally I think TOO hung up.
I found her break downs hilarious! Just because Katherine and I are so different! I was seeing her clearly in my mind being chaotic and on edge. Underneath it all she is a very sweet person who needs to learn to be more dependent on herself. Finally finding the love of her life was the perfect ending for me!
James is such a sweetheart. Being through a very difficult times like losing his father, a businessdeal going sour and a divource he is trying to get back on his feet. The job to help Mark out with his astrology couldn't have been more perfect for him. He grew up with astrology and learned everything he needs to know from the very best. When he receives an email from Katherine he is furious and also afraid of losing his job! During multiple conversations they are getting to know each other better. It turns out they are more compatible than they thought.
This was my very first read of Linn B. Halton and I loved it!! She did such a good thing taking the time to really create the characters.
During the story she leaves little 'questions' which make you want to read more! I found it hard to put this one down.
I like the astrological aspect and the writer did a very good job to be as accurate as possible.
The saying is don't Judge a book by it's cover but a good cover certainly helps. When I see a cover that makes me curious or that I just find gorgeous...I just have to see what it's about. This cover is amazing!!! Love how it shows the softness you have created within your story.
I am looking forward to be reading more books from this author!
Immediately upon starting this book my mind was filled with questions – Why was it day one of the rest of Katherine’s life? How did she fall over? Why was the cat called No.4? and so on. Obviously I had to find out the answers so I kept on turning those pages and found the explanations I required.
The astrology side of the book was fascinating for me, as was Katherine’s addiction to reading her horoscopes – I couldn’t imagine making any decisions based on my horoscope let alone an important one! One particular sentence summed up her feelings nicely:
“It’s not that I can’t make a decision; it’s more that I’m scared of making the wrong decision.”
The writing style was comfortable and there were many fun, laugh out loud moments, a few of my favourites being an awkward dinner party, some heated emails and a journey into writing that led to unexpected and, at times, unwanted attention!
James was wonderful, his thoughtfulness and romantic nervousness endeared him to me and the things he did for Jake, his elderly neighbour, were truly lovely to read about.
And now I move on to No.4, Katherine’s cat, and I have to say that for me he was the star of the book! The relationship between him and Katherine was brilliant and something I could totally relate to because I’m just the same with my pets :)
A lot of major things happened all at once towards the end so that when I put the book down it took a minute for my brain to catch up! A sad event made my heart sink, followed by an unexpected announcement that made it lift again and finally a big question which didn’t quite happen because this was when the story ended (my heart didn’t know what to do at this point).
So after drawing my own conclusions, all in all this was an enjoyable and entertaining read.
