After ditching her fiance at the altar at the age of nineteen, Natalie Love finds herself fifteen years later still single, but with a hot yoga instructor boyfriend, great friends, and a perfect career as the manager of a successful London theatre. But when her ex-fiance shows up to open a new theatre across the street and the famous heartthrob American actor, Ryan Harrison, takes notice of her, Natalie can’t help but start questioning what could have been and what might be. It’s a story of a woman who, in almost losing everything that matters to her, finds contentment in being herself. A wonderful message.
Will someone please get this book in the hands of a Hollywood director?! Or better yet, to Broadway! Miss Wrong and Mr Right is pure romantic comedic genius with a touch of real life drama. A perfect balance!
The main character, Natalie, faces a series of comedic train wrecks that we can all relate to. I don’t often laugh while reading books, but I have to admit that I embarrassed myself laughing out loud in public and then cracking up to the point of tears while reading last night. The characters feel so real that I couldn’t help but be emotionally invested in the story. I found myself gasping at times followed by laughter realising the ridiculousness that life brings us at times.
Bryndza creates a cast that you will recognise from your own life and you’ll love them for all of their little imperfections. From Natalie with her frizzy hair and clutzy mishaps, to Sharon and her loud and crazy family; from Nicky and her over the top personality, to Gran Anouska and her born-before-her-time worldly advice, you will love this book from the opening act to the final curtain call. A definite standing ovation!
A perfect summer beach read, winter in front of the fireplace read, spring at the park read, and autumn under the oak tree read!
A special thank you to Robert Bryndza and NetGalley for offering me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion!
