Elliot Andrews’ romance debut is the first book I’ve read that talks about the pandemic and its existence! I love that. I know that we all want to forget about the pandemic and how it’s affected our lives, but Elliot weaves it into his story seamlessly and it makes sense given the journey that our hero goes through to get to the end of the book.
This book was so wonderful! Open Lanes is Mary Morano’s debut novel and it was such a good time! And it featured one of my favourite tropes of all time – road trips – so that only made this book that much more exciting and lovely to me.
This is a brilliant debut novel, featuring relatable and interesting characters, set against the backdrop of a small town in Alaska and all the magic that comes from the American state.
It’s not just your average second chance romance, it’s not simple or cute, it’s all kinds of chaos, painful and strangely beautiful.
