Cecelia Ahern is one of the biggest names in so-called ‘chick lit’. When she was just 21, she wrote the epic tear jerker PS I Love You, and since then her bestsellers have kept on coming.
Bo and Solomon are a trendy, hipster couple who happen upon the mysterious Laura while they are working on a documentary in a remote part of Ireland.
She’s lived in almost complete isolation for most of her life, and has the amazing ability to mimic sounds. As they decide to make Laura the subject of their next documentary, she takes over their lives and changes them irrevocably.
Solomon and Laura’s instant attraction to each other is a bit over-the-top, but the plot is so intriguing that you can’t help but be hooked from the first chapter. This is in many ways a typical love story, but in other ways, entirely the opposite.
The concept is clever, the characters are vivid and relatable, and with so many twists and secrets waiting to be revealed, you’ll race through to the end.
