As Luck Would Have It – Zoe May


Natalie Jackson might keep up appearances on In

stagram, but in reality her fiancé has just jilted her after the birth of their baby and she’s moved back in with her mum. Life isn’t exactly going to plan!

So when she enters the village raffle for the holiday of a lifetime, she thinks she has no chance of winning. But her name is pulled out – and, as luck would have it, so is a ticket bought by her childhood nemesis: Will Brimble.

Surely a romantic holiday for two is the worst idea ever…right?


I absolutely loved this story. The very beginning was a little slow, when the story was building but it very quickly picked up the pace and boy I was hooked.

I loved following Natalie and Will, especially the very amusing start to their trip.

Having been to Marrakech, the descriptions were so apt and vibrant, I felt like I was right back there. Which was exceptionally welcomed right now after cancelling my upcoming holiday at the end of August.

The language throughout was believable and there was a great mix of formats and styles. It flowed really well and I found it very hard to put down.

Ultimately a very heartwarming story, another excellent book.
