Jeannie always wanted to fall in love, and now she’s finally got the whirlwind romance she dreamed of. Dan’s gorgeous, he’s a successful young vet, and he flew her to New York and proposed on Brooklyn Bridge. Jeannie has to remind herself this is actually her life. It seems too perfect, too magical, to be real. Yet it is.
But now she’s on her way to the wedding she can’t shake off the tight sensation crushing her chest. Is it just nerves . . . or is this all happening a bit too fast?
Jeannie has one last chance to shout, ‘Stop!’ But just as she grabs it, a twist of fate throws everything she knows into the air like confetti. What Jeannie learns about Dan, about her own heart, and about the power of love itself, will change her world for ever . . .
Unexpected Lessons in Love filled me with so many different emotions. Tears were spilled, smiles were given, and love felt. As much as Jeannie irritated me at the beginning of the novel, by the end her journey warmed my heart and I felt myself routing for her. The story itself is so character driven, full of friendship, heartbreak and love. In all honestly I knew what would happen in the end, however I definitely didn’t expect there to be such a twist! The part I loved most about this book though (not that there was much I disliked) was all the dogs. This aspect simply made the story for me. Love love love!
I highly recommend this novel if you’re a lover of contemporary fiction, or just want a bit light in the dark. I’m very much looking forward to reading more from Lucy Dillon as always!
