This is not a love story. This is impossible.

‘Sometimes love doesn’t come in the form you think it will.’

Nick: Failed writer. Failed husband. Dog owner.

Bee: Serial dater. Dress maker. Pringles enthusiast.

When fate brings them together over a misdirected email, the connection is instant. They feel like they’ve known each other all their lives.

It should have been the perfect love story. Instead it was impossible.

Thanks to HarperCollins for the advanced copy of this title in return for an honest review.

This is a genius book, with so much love and pain and honesty.

I love the formatting of this book, mainly using email messages to tell a lot of the story – it gives it a deeper, more human element to the read.

I thought this was going to be a straightforward rom-com, but it is so much more than that. It’s like a sci-fi-rom-com, if that’s a genre. It really gets under your skin and makes you question everything you think you know.

It is so well written it had me googling terms used to check if they were real or not; it’s so convincing and eerily so, you don’t know what or who to believe.

I quite like the idea of parallel worlds and there being another ‘me’ out there. But if that other me is married to the actor Chris Evans, and I’m not, I will be annoyed.

There are some touchy subjects and moral issues that are touched upon, but perfectly so. They’re not taken lightly but not made to bring the mood down.

The epilogue is just so heart-warming and cosy and above all, hopeful. This is the book I long to write. It is beautiful in every meaning of the word.
