How To Fall In Love Again (Kitty’s Story) By Amanda Prowse – #BookReview #RituReviews @MrsAmandaProwse

Another Monday, another review!

If you remember, a while back, I reviewed two amazing books by best-selling author, Amanda Prowse: Anna and Theo. They were part of a One Love Two Stories set, where you read the same story from two perspectives.

I’m still fangirling!

Read my reviews here:

Anna

Theo

Well, just as I was getting over the fantastic story, she only went and published a third book that links with them!

This one is entitled How To Fall In Love Again (Kitty’s Story) and is about a secondary character from the previous two books, whose life is entwined with both Theo and Anna.

First, the official blurb:

Amanda Prowse, queen of heartbreak fiction, asks if you can ever find love in your twilight years, after living a lie?
Kitty Montrose is packing up her house, and the memories that go with it. Under this roof, she’s seen her children grow up, her grandchildren arrive, and her marriage come and go.
Kitty knows better than most that the twists and turns of life can bring joy, despair, and everything in between. But when she was a little girl, she had hoped for more. She dreamed of finding her true soulmate. Someone to laugh with, cry with, and share her twilight years.
Then Kitty meets Theo, an old flame. The timing was never right for their lives to intertwine. Can Theo and Kitty find a way to fall in love again? Or is it too late for them both?

My take:

Kitty is a young girl, brought up in a perfect family. Her parents dote on her, the housekeeper like an extra mother figure. Her cousins are the brothers she never had.
The dark shadow of depression threatens to cloud the happiness of their family, so Kitty seeks solace through her passion for swimming, escaping to the pool whenever she can.
Being sent to boarding school to be spared the visions of her haunted mother and long-suffering father, she meets several characters who will shape her life to come.
Angus and Theo.
First love and friendship.
It’s easy to confuse the two.
Pregnancy, marriage, another pregnancy, revelations, the loss of loved ones, the finding of new special folk, and a story that comes full circle in the end.
A beautiful tale filled with hope that shines through the difficulties Kitty faces.

My Review:

After surfacing from the book hangover of both Anna and Theo, I was thrilled to find out there was a third book, that linked to their story; that of Kitty.
Amanda Prowse has a way of telling the story from different perspectives, which makes you see a situation in totally separate lights. I was hooked from start to finish, and it was exciting to read parts of the entwined story which you remembered so clearly from the previous books, yet, they were written in a way that added another dimension to the knowledge you already had.
I rooted for Anna through her story, I wanted to champion Theo through his ups and downs, and I cried for Kitty, and cheered for her happy ending!
I shan’t give anything away (no one wants spoilers!) but suffice to say, Kitty’s story kept me gripped!
Even though I have been busy nursing my unwell father, this book was unputdownable! (don’t worry, no fathers were neglected during the reading of this book!)
How To Fall In Love Again (Kitty’s Story) can be enjoyed as a stand-alone, but personally, I recommend reading all three – it just adds to the experience!!

 My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

About Amanda:

Amanda has always obsessively crafted short stories and scribbled notes for potential books, but it wasn’t until she was forty that she began writing full time. The result was Poppy Day, the story of an army wife, whose incredible love for her husband gives her the courage to rescue him from hostages in Afghanistan. This was followed by the number 1 bestseller What Have I Done? Amanda now has ten novels and four novellas published.
All of Amanda’s books in the No Greater Love series share common themes in that they are contemporary love stories, the main characters are women, just like you and I, who find themselves in extraordinary situations for love.
Her new series is the No Greater Courage series, tales of women facing the trials that life throws at them and having to dig deep to find the will and strength to succeed. This series includes the A Mother’s Story and Perfect Daughter, which continue to receive brilliant reader and press reviews.
Amanda’s ambition has always been to create stories that keep people from turning the bedside lamp off at night, great characters that ensure you take every step with them and tales that fill your head so you can’t possibly read another book until the memory fades…
Currently, Amanda lives in the West Country with her husband and their 18 & 19-year-old boys Josh and Ben.

    This sounds like the kind of book that I would enjoy. I love stories that really unpack characters – their motivations, why they do the things that they do. Looking at a story from different perspectives is also a good way good to keep things balanced. Thanks for sharing this book with us.

    The three books sound worthy of a read. I’m glad you had something to distract you for a little while when dealing with your pops being unwell!
