“Maybe he wasn’t here because of the lights – maybe they were here because of him …”
It’s been over eighteen months since Molly Gilchrist has had a man (as her best friend, Caro, is so fond of reminding her) so when she as good as stumbles upon one on the moors one bitterly cold morning, it seems like the Universe is having a laugh at her expense.
But Phinn Baxter (that’s Doctor Phinneas Baxter) is no common drunkard, as Molly is soon to discover; with a PhD in astrophysics and a tortured past that is a match for Molly’s own disastrous love life.
Finding mysterious men on the moors isn’t the weirdest thing Molly has to contend with, however. There’s also those strange lights she keeps seeing in the sky. The ones she’s only started seeing since meeting Phinn …
I won a copy of this book on a give away that Choc Lit were running. The reason why I entered the give away was because I was drawn by the cover, it really is lovely and was even nicer when I had the book in my hands.
The story as the blurb says is mainly focused on Molly Gilchrist and Phinn Baxter. Both characters are running away from their past but after an eventful meeting, that is one you would not forget in a hurry, their lives seem suddenly very drawn to one another.
Overall this is a very pleasant read, Molly and Phinn are very unique individuals that readers can easily relate to and have empathy for. I loved Stan the horse as also Caro, Molly’s friend and Link, Phinn’s best friend. The horse and the two friends seemed to bring a sense of fun to the story.
The background story to the mysterious stars was really nice to read and added a bit of mystery to the book.
How I Wonder What You Are is an enjoyable read and I think any fans of chick lit books will like it.
I have awarded this book 3/5 stars.
How I Wonder What You Are is available to purchase from Amazon.
