I’m thrilled to be sharing my review for The Pieces of You and Me by Rachel Burton today. With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite to join the tour and to the author and publisher for my copy of the book via Netgalley. First of all though let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
They say time can heal all wounds…
When Jess and Rupert parted ways, it was the end of a great love story that might have been. Now ten years later, the very different paths they have taken in life will bring them back together for a chance meeting.
But with so much left unsaid about the break up neither ever recovered from and with each keeping their own devastating secrets, will they finally be able to make the fractured pieces of their love for one another whole again?
I have loved Rachel Burton’s previous books so I couldn’t wait to pick up her latest release! In The Pieces of You and Me we meet Jess and Rupert who bump into each other after 10 years apart and what follows is not only about their chance meeting. It is also a wonderfully nostalgic and beautiful story that I found so engaging. Now I’m going to be as vague as I can regarding the plot because all the little reveals and past memories are so worth discovering for yourself. What I will say is that it was extremely easy to be pulled into Jess and Rupert’s life especially as I was so curious about what happened all those years ago.
Rachel Burton has created a story with warmth and love but also with a realistic down to earth feel. This story shows how people can be flawed, make mistakes but also maybe get that second chance too! I loved how the reader is shown Jess and Rupert’s relationship both in the past and also their present. All being revealed in a wonderful way so that the reader is given bits of information carefully at a time to digest. I think this really helped me to become even more attached to these characters. I loved the diary entries ( I have a soft spot for them in any story) they helped to build the emotional connection to the characters especially showing Jess’s hopes and fears. The minor characters all brought something to the story too whether it was drama, love or friendship with it all coming together to create something very special!
The Pieces of You and Me is a beautiful love story showing that life isn’t necessarily perfect but that’s okay! Honest, heartfelt and uplifting!
