Simsala`s Abracadabra

Reader of m/m fiction and romance, coffee addict, worst reviewer ever,

After The Fall - Sarah Goodwin Suspending disbelief (both MCs suffering retrograde amnesia after an accident) I very much enjoyed this laid back romance with likeable characters even though it came - as Natalie said - in muted colors.
Well done portray of the British working class, the hopelessness of continuing unemployment and trying to build a new life from scratch after severe memory loss.
I would have rated it 5 stars if not for the major plothole in the second part of the book the total lack of police investigation for a person gone missing after the accident even when the wallet with ID + picture was in the car wreck.

The bleakness of the story - effectively intensified with the ever present rain and coldness - didn`t make it a light and easy read but the heartwarming message that love isn`t only for the lucky and the strong made it a very satisfying read.
