About Our Stop

What if you almost missed the love of your life?

Nadia gets the 07.30 train every morning without fail. Well, except if she oversleeps or wakes up at her friend Emma’s after too much wine.

Daniel really does get the 07.30 train every morning, which is easy because he hasn’t been able to sleep properly since his Dad died.

One morning, Nadia’s eye catches sight of a post in the daily paper:

To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress. I’m the guy who’s always standing near the doors… Drink sometime?

So begins a not-quite-romance of near-misses, true love, and the power of the written word.

My review of Our Stop

I absolutely loved Our Stop from the very beginning. What a gorgeous, quirky and heartwarming story. Its a sliding doors for our modem generation and I greedily devoured every page. 

This is such a feel good book with so many missed encounters. It's funny, it's heartfelt and it just makes you feel good about life.

I liked Nadia from the moment I met her with her cup of coffee and haphazard way of dealing with the world. She's a woman who lives life to the fullest, and who cares about people. She just wants to settle down and be happy and to not repeat what happened in a past relationship.

We then have Daniel, a man who is kind, caring and the ultimate gentleman. I warmed to him instantly. I also felt that his storyline, in which he was still grieving for his father, was poignant and well written.

Ultimately, this is a love story that is very much based on words and the art  of letter writing. This was a joy to read in the age of texting and Tumblr. It's a story about second, third and fourth chances and that there is someone out there for everyone. A pure delight.

With thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the Advanced Reader Copy.

Our Stop is published by Avon on 13 June.
