My rating: 5 stars
A heartwarming and heartbreaking story about love and life in one of Europe's most romantic cities, Prague.
Welcome to a city where wishes are everywhere.
For Megan, a winter escape to Prague with her friend Ollie is a chance to find some inspiration for her upcoming photography exhibition. But she's determined to keep their friendship from becoming anything more. Because if Megan lets Ollie find out about her past, she risks losing everything - and she won't let that happen again...
For Hope, the trip is a surprise treat from Charlie, her new partner. But she's struggling to enjoy the beauty of the city when she nows how angry her daughter is back home. And that it's all her fault...
For Sophie, the city has always been a magical place. This time she can't stop counting down the moments until her boyfriend Robin joins her. But in historic Prague you can never escape the past...
Three different women.
Three intertwining love stories.
This book is amazing. I am seriously considering visiting Prague because of this. I fell in love with the story, the characters and Prague.
We follow three main characters; Megan, Hope and Sophie, who happen to be visiting Prague for different reasons, but at the same time. The POV's are in rotation, and we never have the same POV for two chapters at the time.
The descriptions and imagery in this book was amazing. It really felt like I was there, in Prague, with the characters. I could visualize everything, and I felt calm reading this book. And it definitely made me excited for Christmas, though that is not the main point of the story.
I am not going to spoil anything, but this story is so intriguing. There was something that made me relate to all of the characters in different ways, and it was easy to understand their actions.
I don't really have much more to say about this book, because I don't want to spoil anything. It is definitely a book I would recommend picking up, it is an amazing read, and the author is incredibly talented.
