The Letter – Kitty’s Story
Thirty-four-year-old Kitty Bennett is trapped in a loveless marriage to criminal barrister, Dan, who’s gradually isolated her from her family and friends. Until the day she (literally) bumps into her first love, the handsome and easy-going Ollie Cartwright – someone she’s done her best to avoid for as long as she can remember. Looking into Ollie’s eyes awakens feelings for him she thought she’d buried deep years ago, and he clearly feels the spark, too. As she walks away, Kitty can’t help but wonder what might have been…
Dan senses that his marriage is on shaky ground and knows he needs to win his wife round. He turns on the charm, skilfully using their two children, Lucas and Lily, as bargaining tools. But Kitty’s older brother, Jimby, and her childhood best-friends, Molly and Violet, have decided enough is enough. For years they’ve had to watch from afar as Kitty’s been browbeaten into an unrecognisable version of herself. They vow to make her see Dan for what he really is, but their attempts are no match for his finely-honed courtroom skills and, against her better judgement, Kitty agrees to give her husband one last chance. But, all-too-soon, a series of heart-breaking events and a shocking secret throw her life into turmoil…
Will she stand by Dan, or will Kitty be brave enough to take the leap and follow her heart to Ollie?
Life is anything but peaceful in the chocolate-box pretty village of Lytell Stangdale, where life unravels, and hearts are broken. Full of heart-warming moments, this book with have you crying tears of joy, laughter and sadness.
4 Second Chance Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟
This was such a lovely story a lighthearted look at some pretty heavy subject matter… before we get to the book I want to assert my own opinion… as someone who was in a toxic marriage for many years and dealt with a lot of The same issues that Kitty did…. not sure if getting into another romantic relationship straight away is the best idea? Sometimes you need to take a little time for yourself and your children, because they were in that toxic relationship as well… but this is fiction and we all love a happy ending and Ollie was pretty darn hard to resist!
Kitty loved her! I found her so real and relatable a girl I’d love to swap stories with! Trapped in a bad marriage to Dan who finally wakes up and decides he wants to fight for his wife…. but even his attempt to save the marriage was filled with manipulative actions ugh… thank goodness Kitty had a wonderful brother and some pretty spectacular friends in Molly and Violet…
I thought Kitty’s story was told amazingly well! The only problem I had with this book was so many secondary stories going on… from what I gather this is The first book in a small town romance series… so I am sure the author was trying to set up future books, however in doing so I think it created some unnecessary parts in this book…. having said that I’m really looking forward to future books in the series… I am a small town romance fan!
Absolutely recommend to fans of small town second chance love stories!💕
