Book Review: A Part of Me – Anouska Knight

I love books.  Particularly chick lit.  

I’ve just finished A Part of Me by Anouska Knight.


After years of trying, Amy Alwood and James Coffrey have finally been accepted into the adoption process.  At long last they are going to get their ‘happy ever after’.  Then – out of nowhere – a dark secret is revealed, which changes everything.

Amy throws herself into her work to distract herself.  Her new client, Rohan Bywater, is certainly keeping her on her toes.  He’s frustrating, lives on the edge…and she can’t stop thinking about him.  He’s very clear on one thing though: kids are not part of his future.

Amy is torn – does she follow her heart and let the thing she wants most slip away, or carry on with a lie and live with the consequences?

What I thought…

I loved this book right from the word go.  I was totally gripped within about 5 pages, so much so that I finished it in one sitting.  Anouska Knight is so eloquent and descriptive that you almost feel like you are in the story, living it alongside Amy and the others.  The characters are all warm and likeable – with the exception of the token bad guy of course.  I won’t name names or ruin the story, you’ll have to read it to find out for yourself!  This is the first Anouska Knight book I have read and I’ve since discovered that she has written another 2 – they have just been added to my ‘To Read’ list.  Look out for them over the coming weeks.

If you are a fan of authors such as Paige Toon, Sophie Kinsella , Lindsey Kelk et al then I can guarantee that you will absolutely adore this book.  It’s a must read for all chick lit lovers like myself and its perfect for reading in the sunshine.  So go on grab a copy & lose yourself in the world of Amy Alwood.  

Let me know what you thought in the comments below.

Next on my list

This week I’m reading ‘Billy & Me’ by Giovanna Fletcher.  I’d love to hear others thoughts on these books and also if anyone has any recommendations.  I’m always looking for the next story to get lost in.
