Product description

The brand new release from the Sunday Times bestselling author that bought you Fairytale of New York and It Started With A Kiss. What happens when your happy ever after is suddenly and painfully taken away from you? Elsie Maynard has a whole new life she never expected to have. From inadvertently founding a choir like no other with former 80s rock star Woody Jensen, to daring to date again, Elsie steps out into an unknown future - a future that could include gorgeous designer Olly Hogarth, a man who seems intent on winning her heart. Overcoming problems, challenges and the occasional frustration - namely overconfident Torin Stewart who seems to be everywhere - Elsie believes she is making the most of her life. But then a heartfelt request brings her to Paris - and the last item on a very important List. Can Elsie take the final step and lay her past to rest? Join Elsie as she battles to start again, with the help of a disastrous, newly-formed singing group and her father and sister armed with dating hopefuls.

Customer reviews

By Kate Verrier 14 Dec 2012 5

Having read and enjoyed all of this authors previous books it was a bit of a no-brainer that I would buy this one. As with all Miranda's books the cover was gorgeous and I was looking forward to jumping into her latest creation.

Wow! I've always loved this authors writing style so I was pretty confident that I would enjoy the book, but I was surprised that I felt so connected to the storyline when I haven't been through it myself. Tears didn't just fall - they poured as this wonderful story took me to places I had never thought of. I didn't only feel sadness though, there was laughter, shock and happiness all rolled up in one fabulous book!

I was laughing out loud by page two - what a great start! I was keen to find out exactly what had happened eighteen months previously to stop Elsie dating, I was just as keen to find out the meaning of 'The List' and the lovely little notes. Once I understood what they were all about I filled up with tears every time a new one came up.

Elsie was a wonderfully warm character who I liked straight away, I loved the closeness of her family and I quickly felt like I was a part of it too. A spontaneous singing moment that had me smiling from ear to ear was an important turning point for Elsie and I couldn't wait to see where it would take her.

I can't write this review without mentioning Woody, he was such a fantastic character (one of my favourites in fact). I would say to watch out for him when you read it but the truth is you won't be able to miss him because he is so vibrant! I found him very easy to visualise and regularly laughed out loud at the things he said:

"We'll be like undercover agents for the forces of music: choir ninjas, if you will."

I was completely torn between the two main male characters, I kind of fell in love with them both and couldn't decide who would be best for Elsie.

The choir was another great part of this book and I thoroughly enjoyed following their progress, one of my favourite choir moments came during a performance - an 84-year-old member finished the show with some awesome air-guitar moves!

Paris was lovely and also the cause of most of my tears, there was a particularly heartbreaking moment that had me sobbing - it was written beautifully and I was so caught up in Elsie's life that I just couldn't stop crying.

At the end of the story I got to read the actual 'List' and I thought this was a lovely way to end the book as it made me smile before I closed it.

This was a captivating tale that really touched my heart in a completely unexpected way.
