Amelia Henley’s debut novel was published in 2020 and was a five star read for me – completely beautiful from start to finish! Amelia writes contemporary fiction with fantastic style and the excellent structure and talent that we have come to see in her psychological thrillers published under her real name, Louise Jensen, are firmly present in her new genre.
The Art of Loving You is no exception – beautiful prose, interesting and compelling characters and carefully constructed storylines and twists are present throughout the book. Being heavily invested in the contemporary fiction genre however and having read extensively – quite a few of the twists and storylines revealed were things that have already been well covered before in existing fiction books/movies and therefore didn’t feel as revealing or unique. For someone new to the genre however, this book has elements of surprise that will be brilliant.
