Welcome to my stop on the “Instructions for Falling In Love Again” by Lucy Mitchell Blog Tour. This is an amazing debut romantic comedy that I had the privilege of reading, and hopefully now you will read it too.
About the Book
What would you do if your late husband left you a list of instructions on how to fall in love with someone else?
Pippa Browning is faced with this exact dilemma, three years after the death of her husband, Dan.
Buried at the bottom of a drawer are a collection of notebooks full of Dan’s advice on how to live without him.
Pippa’s notebook is red and contains his instructions on how to fall in love again.
But Dan doesn’t just want Pippa to fall in love with anyone – Dan’s crazy suggestion is that Pippa should date his handsome friend, Mikey Stenton, a known thrill-seeking ladies’ man.
Reluctant to follow Dan’s advice, Pippa enters the world of dating. She embarks on a humorous journey of self-discovery, with the help of her children and two best friends.
It isn’t long before Pippa is finding it hard to ignore Dan’s instructions and Mikey Stenton.
Is Mikey really the man that everyone thinks him to be? Or was Dan right, and Mikey’s simply been misunderstood?
A heart-warming romantic comedy about motherhood, friendship and finding love, the second time around.
I’ve been reading rom-coms for a long time now, to be honest they are one of my guilty pleasures. So when the opportunity arose to jump on to this blog tour and read this new debut, there was no way I was going to pass it up. Boy, am I glad I did.
Let me just make this easy, I loved this debut novel. It is truly one of the best rom-coms I have ever read, and I mean that wholeheartedly. This isn’t your typical angsty relationship type, he said – she said book. Lucy Mitchell wrote a realisitc story that the reader could actually see and imagine happening in real life. The characters are original, they are relatable, and they could very easily be you or me. I wouldn’t be shocked to see this one made into a screenplay. Not kidding.
We’ve all read books with dual POV, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but with this novel, the dual POV is what makes it work so well. Bouncing between Pippa and Mikey’s lives and thoughts really gives you the connection you need to fall in love with these characters and truly feel their heartfelt emotions. The supporting cast in this book, the friends and family members, all have authentic personalities, and compliment the story well.
Instructions For Falling In Love Again is probably now my all time favorite debut rom-com novel. Lucy Mitchell knocked this one out of the park and wrote an original, new and fresh heartwarming comedy with one heck of a twist. I devoured this book in one sitting, and I expect any other reader will do the same. Ms. Mitchell gets a solid 4 1/2 stars from me, and it is well deserved. I am looking forward to reading whatever she comes up with next, and I hope when this one goes to film I get a chance to see it in premier!!
