Natalie Love has worked hard to have it all. She runs a successful London theatre that’s about to host one of Hollywood’s leading stars, Ryan Harrison. She’s pretty sure she’s found her man in yoga boyfriend Benjamin, despite his annoying habit of saying Namaste! every time he speaks. And her eccentric, glamorous Hungarian Gran is always on hand to offer sage advice and steaming bowls of goulash.
Life in the bright lights of London has always been Natalie’s escape from her chaotic country family in rural Devon and Jamie, the childhood sweetheart she left at the altar fifteen years ago. Until he turns up at her theatre door…
Jamie is in town producing a West End show and with rivalry suddenly clouding old feelings, this isn’t quite the reunion Natalie was expecting.
Will Benjamin prove to be Natalie’s perfect match? With Ryan turning her head, Natalie is more confused than ever. And what about Jamie – could he be her second chance at first love?
Now anyone who follows my blog will know I mostly read crime or psychological thrillers, once in a blue moon I turn to the dark side and read something that’s completely out my comfort zone. Now I could tell you a whopping big fib here and say I felt like reading a Romantic comedy but that’s wasn’t the case! The only reason I choose to read Miss Wrong And Mr Right is because it’s written by the very talented and one of my very favourite authors Robert Bryndza, if you follow my blog you will know I’m a huge fan of his crime series and have been known to be rather enthusiastic with my reviews, I wasn’t convinced this would be a book I would enjoy as there was no serial killer or bad ass Detectives in sight so with trepidation and a crime book at the ready just in case I hated it (Apologies Robert Bryndza if you just happen to come across this review for doubting you) I began to read Miss Wrong And Mr Right……..
The first thing I should state is this novel should come with a safety warning “do not read whilst drinking coffee and holding your kindle” I literally laughed so much I choked on my coffee and covered my kindle in the stuff! The story opens up with Natalie Love jolting her boyfriend Jamie at the alter, and deciding life has much more to offer moves to London. Fast forward 15 years and Natalie is now a very successful theatre manager, has a yoga-loving boyfriend and life is great or is it? When Natalie’s ex Jamie shows up to open a burlesque venue with his new girlfriend Tuppence Halfpenny, life is never going to be the same for Natalie.
Robert Bryndza has created an array of characters that are larger than life, I especially loved Natalie’s gran and with the Hungarian accent thrown in there are some very funny moments involving her. I loved Natalie with her frizzy hair and far from perfect figure, in fact all the characters were very likeable. The author certainly has away of describing and making his characters come to life, and some of the dialogue between the characters certainly made me laugh out loud.
This is certainly one of the better RomComs I’ve read, yes it maybe a bit predictable and corny at times, but I have to say I really enjoyed it. If you are looking for a novel to lift your mood and forget your woes look no further, Miss Wrong And Mr Right is the perfect read to do just that, it’s light hearted and entertaining and not a serial killer in sight!
