You’re the one that I want – by Giovanna Fletcher

25 04 2015

This is Giovanna Fletcher’s second book after Billy and Me which I read last year. That one I described as enjoyable but a little sickly in places; this one was another easy read, but any sickliness was more bearable this time!

The book opens on Maddy walking down the aisle to marry Robert, but with doubts as their mutual best friend was the best man, Ben, and she still had confusion as to her feelings towards him. Flash back seventeen years and we come across the first time Maddy meets them both, and follow them on their lives up to that point. We have two narrators in this book, just Maddy and Ben, with occasional paragraphs thrown in from the grooms speech at the wedding.

Definitely like a warm hug in a book, easy reading, and you do feel like you get to know these people as you grow up with them. Chick lit, most definitely!
