A Quarter to Twelve (Time #1)A Quarter to Twelve by Josephine Traynor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Quarter to Twelve by Josephine Traynor is my first encounter with the writer and I really enjoyed it! It is the first book of the series and as we meet also the characters who are the leads in the next book, I cannot wait for the second book.
I assume every one of us has at some point in time thought about joining an online dating service AND most likely actually followed through with it … I luckily did not have the ‘fun’ that Ava experienced with her trial (no unsavory pictures) or maybe it is the Australian thing . I am sure though that all of us have a friend or a friend of a friend with a horror story about online dating so we can for sure relate to what Ava went through.
What I loved about Ava and Patrick, our two leads, that they are completely ‘normal’ – no six packs or size 0 blondes having everything going for them. No, they are like you and me, with their imperfections and baggage and triggers and doubts and at the same time, both of them still hope for someone who puts them first, stands next to them and supports them through thick and thin!
I had such a fun reading this book. I was rooting for both Ava and Patrick! I was screaming at Ava’s mother in my head and I was frustrated with all the twists and challenges they had when trying to meet. I laughed and I cried and above all, I hoped for them to be there for each other and stick it out and prove that there is someone out there for each of us and we simply need to take a chance!
As I said, I will be reading the second book – Chris and Charlotte’s book as well!
