There are 3 stories unfolding in this delightful read.
Saffy and Greg are the couple about town. He is the soap hunk, with a funny problem with sayings, and she has a successful career in advertising. The novel begins on Valentine's night, when Saffy feels sure Greg is about to propose. Disaster strikes at the restaurant.
Conor and Jess are comfortable with each other, having lived together for 7 years and having twins, Lizzie and Luke. Jess is quite happy with the ways things are....or is she?
Saffy has a strained relationship with her mother and the reason for this is deep-rooted and is revealed in the novel. Circumstances are about to change this relationship.
The Postcards from the Heart actually came from a source that I had not guessed. I would like to have seen more of this part of the story earlier in the novel, but it was a very moving part of the novel.
Ella Griffin has written a comman tale of relationships but given it more of a rollercoaster ride. Her comic timing at some of the most poignant moments was fabulous. I would just be feeling emotional and a laugh would come along.
4 out of 5 for me!
