When Hattie Green pops to the shop one afternoon, she never expects her life to flash before her eyes between the tins of baked beans and a special offer on sliced white. One minute she’s loading her trolley and thinking about what to give her son for dinner, and the next she’s speaking to a gorgeous man in a glowing white suit about what her life could have been…
If you had the chance to go back and relive it all, what would you do differently? Go on that date, take that promotion… eat that second biscuit? Hattie is about to discover where she went wrong, but will her mystery second chance reveal some STONKING secrets in her past that probably should have stayed hidden?
A gorgeous romantic comedy from the bestselling author of What Holly’s Husband Did. Perfect for fans of Tracy Bloom, Marian Keyes and Dawn French.
I knew from the blurb this book was going to be a little bit different. I mean, come on, it’s not like it’s everyday you get to go to heaven before you actually die! That’s what happens to Hattie though and along with the wonderful Josh, she is sent on a journey to review her life. I really loved the idea behind the story and it worked so well.
Whilst this is mainly a romantic and humorous read, there are also some very tender and moving parts. It certainly hasn’t all been fun and games when it comes to Hattie’s love life and it made her more endearing to me. At times I wanted to be next to her to give her a hug or a squeeze to let her know I was there for her. It will certainly make the reader go through an array of emotions.
The Man You Meet In Heaven is a fabulously emotive and fun filled read. It whisked me away from the real world whilst I was totally absorbed in Hattie’s. I actually got quite tearful as I neared the end as I wasn’t ready to part ways from Hattie and Josh. The author certainly knows how to draw her readers into her books and leave them happily devouring page after page. Great book!
