A great read about opposites. When a black cat crosses her path, Alexa runs into a series of bad luck, including bumping straight into Kent at a hospital. Kent is bitter with the world after tradegy, but Alexa seems to be a ray of sunshine. Will he let her in or push her away in fear?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Alexa standing up for herself but kind underneath or Kent harsh exterior but kind and sweet or Abby’s positive outlook on life being too short to be miserable. A great cast of supporting characters like Vince as a good friend or Dali as bubbly and loud.
I loved the use of visual detail throughout the novel like with the cafe shop full of life and people. Or the colourful nature of Alexa and her kitchen with bright red and soft whites combining together. Or the vivid colours of the headscarves and pillows in bright bold colours against a dark world as a sense of comfort and happiness to Abby and beautifully written. And loved the sweet look on cancer as something with its ups and downs. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
