HEATHER GREEN is a fun loving, happy go lucky, twenty-six year old who has remained upright and beaming despite a few wobbles in life. She wears her heart on her sleeve and pins on her thoughts for good measure.
We meet Heather as she moves out of her family home to share with four guys, much to the dismay of her long suffering (by his own admission!) boyfriend Graham. We follow her housemates and watch their sometimes funny, sometimes-fraught relationships as they go about their daily lives.
Join Heather as she navigates the simple things in life, her inability to remember the code for the house alarm, odd driving habits, general musings on chick flicks, casualties in cooking, as well as her attempts to talk down the “mad farmer with the gun.” Experience comedy and drama as we get to know her family and housemates, and, as an unexpected event finally takes her down, learn what happens when the last people you expected to turn to are actually the ones you need the most.
I adored Heather in this book. She is so lovely and I know if she was a real person we would get on really well. I have to admit I was quite envious that she was gong to be sharing a house with four guys. I mean come on, honestly, who wouldn’t want to?
All the men are very different in personalities and I really enjoyed getting to know them better. Any of them had to be better than Graham, of who the further into the book I got, the more I started to dislike him. I was desperate for Heather to wake up and realise she deserved way better.
It was really quite endearing in parts to see this group of people bonding. It isn’t just Heather and the guys, there are quite a few other characters that spend quite a bit of time in the house also. Even though there is quite a vast amount of characters, it was still easy to keep up with who was seeing who and what relation they were to everyone else in the house.
Rob was definitely one of my favourite characters by the end. He just grew on me the more and more I read about him. At times I wanted to give him a good shake but you know his heart’s in the right place really.
It Started With A Snub was a great mix of friendship and romance. The story line itself had enough going on that kept me enthralled and I couldn’t wait to see how everything was going to end. It really did have a bit of everything and sends your emotions haywire. Really enjoyed it and very much look forward to reading more by the author.
