This is a Love Story: But not every story is the same

Jessica Thompson

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A quirky, modern love story reminiscent of indie films like 500 Days of Summer.

This is a love story. Boy meets girl and girl falls for boy - that much is true.

But when Sienna meets Nick it's not the way it happens in love stories. It's because of a squirrel on water skis...

She sees Nick's dangerous brown eyes and thinks, Don't. Fall. Into. Them.

Who will be there to catch Siena when she falls? She is so fragile. She has so many secrets, and he is not that serious.

Funny and sad, this is the story of two people destined never to come together in the great love affair they crave more than anything else.

Praise for This is a Love Story: But not every story is the same

  • Thompson's first novel is a triumph... What I really enjoyed was the way Thompson conveys the whole world of young, single London, the clothes, the music, the furnishings and the central, abiding love of the great city itself, full of excitement and potential. Infectious. - Daily Mail

  • 'Reminiscent of One Day, this moving, quirky love story is sob-inducingly romantic.' 4* - Closer

  • It is very One Day-esque. Endearing dual narrative and a lovely flow... highly recommended. - the Bookseller

  • WOW! What an adorable and emotional story and an incredibly debut novel from Jessica Thompson who is surely an author to look out for... Jessica writes from the heart, and the characters were perfectly formed. So hard to believe that this delightfully compelling book that had me spellbound from the very start, wasn't penned by an author who'd been writing for years. I'm sure that given the reading enjoyment that this book gave me, Jessica Thompson will be a well-established author that we'll be seeing for many years to come. - Kim the bookworm blog

  • This is simply one of the best books I have read in a long time. It is a true little gem. Jessica Thompson manages to describe the characters so well they feel so real, [it] pulled at my heart strings. - Book reviews by Rea (blog)

  • I loved everything about this book. This is a stunning debut, one which will really pull at your heart-strings, and leave you wanting more. Brilliant.' - Chicklitchloe (blog)

  • If you likes One Day this will be right up your street. A really sweet and heart-wrenching read. - U magazine (Ireland)

  • Jessica Thompson has a sparkling, energetic writing style that make THIS IS A LOVE STORY bubble with humour and hum with love from start to finish. - longandshortreviews.blogspot
