How to Save a Life
REVIEW BY JULIE WILLIAMS
Thank you so much to my lovely friend Julie Williams for stepping in to review this book for the Blog Tour. I am a bit behind with reading this authors book, but I loved his first one and so will try and catch up as soon as I can! Please find below Julie's review as part of the Blog Tour.
I am a fan of novels by this author and eagerly await a new release and this is the 5th book to be published and did not disappoint.
The story begins with the main character Luke having a near death encounter whilst sheltering from the rain. He is suddenly pushed out of the way from falling scaffolding and debris by complete stranger Iris who is also weathering out the storm, but is not so lucky and loses her life.
Luke a divorcee owns a small barber shop in Manchester and tends to keep to himself; my thoughts were that he came across as a rather quiet yet angry introvert person which could possibly be explained by the breakup of his marriage. Social butterfly Luke is certainly not and the only family in the UK is his cousin Meg who he has always been close to apart from a slight rift recently that neither of them would mend as both being a little stubborn.
After the accident Meg is Luke’s constant friend and they soon resume their strong bond.
It is interesting to read how almost losing his life nudges Luke into changing his perspective as he struggles to transform from a pessimistic half empty guy into the complete opposite. The obstacles he encounters along the way only make him stronger and a much more positive person.
A delightful story of friendships, hope and transformation, which I found both enjoyable and satisfying.
My thanks to Net Galley for the ARC and to Julie for allowing me to guest review on her blog.
