I received a copy of this book from the publisher.
A serendipitous journey for four strangers, passengers on a flight to St Lucia, is an emotional and engaging read Bernadette, an A&E Nurse in Glasgow, is determined to live life fully after spending thirty years in an abusive marriage. Hayley’s marriage is toxic; she knows but isn’t sure how to escape her controlling husband. Tadgh is looking forward to his destination wedding, but the text message he saw is a cause for concern, and Dev, a lover of romcoms who is sure he’s met the one, is following her to St Lucia.
I love the believable characters. The setting on a holiday flight to St Lucia is the equivalent of a locked room in the mystery genre. Their worlds converge, and for the four strangers, it creates an ethos of safety and sharing. The friendships that develop are meaningful and uplifting. There’s camaraderie, humour, romance, and a little serendipity in this lovely story that is heartbreaking and heartwarming. The ending is satisfying.
