Oh I loved this gentle romcom book, it had me smiling many times the way through.
Minnie has always hated New Years Eve, somehow she feels its jinxed maybe because she was a minute too late to be first the baby born in the nineties in a local competition and then her mother’s favourite name Quinn was given to that very baby. She instead became Minnie Cooper and has always been told by her Mum that things wouldn’t have happened to a Quinn Cooper.
What happens when she meets the Quinn who ‘stole’ her name?
This was such a feel good novel for me and I loved seeing Minnie’s growth throughout the story. Even though we could tell Minnie’s Mum loved her, I could totally understand why Minnie didn’t have much self confidence. Thank goodness for her best friend Lelia.
Interspersed at the start of some chapters the book has some sliding door moments when Minnie and Quinn actually met on the dreaded New Years Eve without them knowing over the past number of years. It did take one of two of these moments, to get into that groove.
This had all the hallmarks of a romcom I love, supportive friends, quirky characters, funny moments, some snarkiness and the realisation that someone means more than you than you thought.
Read in two sittings.
Thankyou to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy to read.
