A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger by Lucy Robinson eBook Review

* I was given a free ecopy of this book for my honest review*

Charley Lambert has put considerable effort into achieving a perfect life. She has The Job. The Wardrobe. And The Flat. Her womanizing, junk food-loving housemate Sam lowers the tone a bit but that aside, things are peachy. Then she breaks her leg in three places, watches her unrequited love propose to someone else and - worst of all - is forced to hand over her job to her nasty deputy while she recovers. Workaholic Charley fears that she will soon go mad. Desperate for something to do, she discovers her talent for helping the lovelorn online. And then William arrives in her inbox. Within hours of his first email, her world starts to change. Helpless, she watches herself fall in love with this man and begins to realize that she's not who she thought she was. But will she be brave enough to turn her back on her old life - all for a total stranger?

About this Lucy Robinson

Prior to writing Lucy earned her crust in theatre production and then factual television, working on documentaries for all of the UK’s major broadcasters. Her writing career began when she started a dating blog for Marie Claire about her fairly pathetic attempts at Internet dating.

Lucy was brought up in Gloucestershire surrounded by various stupid animals. She studied at Birmingham University and lived in London for many years before disappearing off to South America to write her first two novels. 

She now lives in Bristol with her partner, The Man. She likes dogs and cheese and horses and seals and cake and baths and she blogs daily about funny things that have made her smile today.


I don't often read chick-lit these days. I used to read a lot of it but these days I just really haven't found anything that interest me but when I was asked to review A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger and I had read the synopsis of the book I decided to give this one a chance because it sounded interesting.

I am so happy I gave this one a chance because I just couldn't put it down. Like most chic-lit books this is predictable but I didn't mind because it is very well written and there were some laugh out loud funny parts and it kept me reading until the very end.

If you are into this kind of books then I suggest you read this one. 

I give this 5 out of 5
