Henry and Zoe have more in common than they realise. For a start, they both have pasts they’d rather leave behind.
After jilting his childhood sweetheart on the eve of their wedding in the small town where they both grew up, Henry runs away to London, planning to reinvent himself and start afresh.
Zoe has her own healing to do and so she plans to leave London, travel the world, and figure out just what it is she wants out of life. She doesn’t know where she’s going, but she is determined to go there alone.
If Henry and Zoe had met one year ago, perhaps things could have worked out differently. But that’s not the way it works; they meet seven months after their worlds have been turned upside down. And four months before Zoe is due to climb on a plane…
Having read and loved The Two of Us by this author I couldn’t wait to read more.
Henry is quite a complex character. He is a dentist as well as a hair dresser. I don’t think there is anything he isn’t good at apart from relationships. Breaking off his wedding with Alice has done himself no favours in the small community where he is from. Even his mum and dad are struggling to come to terms with what he has done, never mind the bride to be!
Zoe is quite different to Henry. She is quite settled with her life, or she thinks she is, that is until an accident sends her world into turmoil. I really liked Zoe, she is someone that readers can relate to and very likeable. My heart went out to her for what she was going through and I was actually pleased when both characters meet.
This author really knows how to create characters that capture the readers interest. You get so involved with Henry and Zoe’s lives that you forget the world outside. This really is a gentle read that totally draws you in.
The Trouble with Henry and Zoe really is a wonderful read. In parts it is quite emotional and there is a part that was quite unexpected which threw me. I won’t say anymore than that in fear of spoiling it for anyone else but it’s a book I would certainly recommend to family and friends and to anyone else who enjoys this genre of book.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
