  9. Originally posted on albainbookland 2016 09Before picking this book, I had heart great things about it so I guess my expectations were really high, maybe too high After reading it, I can t tell you that I didn t enjoy this story, because I did But I can t tell either that I loved it I did see great potential in it and Rose was a really interesting character to read about but her story didn t blow me away as I was expecting.Rose lost her husband two years ago and is still struggling to get her li [...]

  11. Can you ever love just one person I actually believe that you can and Victoria Walters fabulously told novel is both genuinely brilliant and honestly real Rose has had a tragic emotional drama and this affects Rose s artistic strength as well as her emotional one.As ever in truly romantic style she meets Robert and here we see the sun through the rain for her.Victoria writes a gorgeous summery and heart rending tale and I loved it Hugely recommended.


  12. The prologue set a warm and cosy scene and although I knew what was coming I liked the calm feeling it started me off with Thankfully the initial sadness I had expected wasn t as overwhelming as I thought it would be The author had a very gentle writing style which seemed to make everything easier to take in.The characters were all likeable and in no time at all I felt like I knew them all personally Robert, however, held a touch of mystery I got the feeling there was something not being said, s [...]


  13. Not a great novel from my point of view Its about a woman called Rose who loses the love of her life Lucas in an accident She know that she must go on but she s not sure she knows how It is a typical fairy story with fairly tangible characters and a somewhat emotionally charged story line but it didn t really gel with me It was very predictable and lacked substance with no curve balls to keep the interest going I did get a bit bored and confess to having skim read a lot of the book looking for s [...]


  14.

  15. Such an amazing book It does turn you into a bit if an emotional wreck but once you start you won t be able to stop reading I feel you really feel the characters emotions in this and that s what I enjoy when reading Defiantly recommend

  17. Very predictable, and I had to force myself to finish it What I really didn t like is that the Author takes a lot of pages repeating herself on the same idea.



  18. After reading a prequel to The Second Love of My Life , The Summer I Met You , that I enjoyed, I was very desperate to read about Rose and Lucas They were mentioned in the novella, and even though they were not the main characters there, I warmed to them immediately and wanted to know about them They just teamed so well together However, it came to my knowledge that in The Second Love of My Life Rose is going to find, well yes, a second love of her life, and I must admit, it troubled me very m [...]

  20. I knew from the second I started reading this book that I was going to love it, and I was proved to be absolutely right This is such a beautiful novel about love, grief and second chances.I loved Rose from the start of this novel, she just felt like a real person to me I could feel her pain, her sadness and her desire to honour Lucas, but also her will to live life I think a lot of people will identify quite strongly with her She has been through a lot in her life and even if you haven t been th [...]



  21. 5 Stars I won t lie this story was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me, but for all that it was so worth reading, because while going on Rose s journey through and beyond her grief, it was such a refreshing and uplifting book as well.I lost myself and, without him, I have no idea how to get me back.Rose Walker lost her husband Lucas two years ago, in a wholly preventable accident, the love of her life taken from her in the blink of an eye The intervening two years have passed in a blur of [...]


  22. A stunning debut novel which is beautifully written, which had me both laughing and in tears This book is absolutely beautiful, I was excited to read this after reading the short story prequel, The Summer We Met which was a fabulous introduction to the main characters but is from Emma s perspective how she met John.The Second Love Of My Life is written from Rose s perspective, set in the town fictional town of Talting, 2 years after the tragic death of Lucas The prologue opens the book, 2 years [...]

Originally posted on Dreaming With Open EyesI don t know why but I had been putting off reading this book for months, and I am of course now kicking myself, as it is an amazing book I adored Walter s prequel The Summer I Met You and I knew The Second Love of My Life is going to be as brilliant as this Let me tell you about the story first In The Second Love of My Life we meet Rose Walker Rose had the perfect life She lived in a Cornish town near the coast called Talting, with her childhood sweet [...]


  26. Victoria Walters debut novel has been on my radar for ages More so since I read the prequel novella The Summer I Met You, although I will confess reading The Summer I Met You first was a mistake, because I absolutely loved Lucas, so going into The Second Love of my Life knowing Lucas had died was hard Because it felt like we barely got to know him, and boom, he was gone It kind of made it harder for Robert to make an impact, because Rose and Lucas were childhood sweethearts, they were meant to b [...]
