My thoughts…

This book is a journey of emotions as we unravel Leila and Jake’s story through their alternate narrations. It’s unique, modern and poignant and firmly delivers the message that we should make the most of the time that we have.

I have a charm bracelet – one with a patchy history – and it was even more special discovering Leila’s charms and the reasons that they were chosen as I imagined the history behind some aspects of my own bracelet.

This book burns slowly – and I love that. The build up to the ending (and what a beautiful ending) is slow and dramatic and the tension is strong. This is absolutely beautiful and I love everything about the characters, the writing style and the story.

About the book…

Leila’s charm bracelet tells a story of love, a story of loss, a story of hope.

This is the story of her… and the story of Jake.

When Leila Jones loses her precious charm bracelet and a stranger finds it, she has to tell the story of how she got the charms to prove she’s the owner. Each and every one is a precious memory of her life with Jake.

So Leila starts at the beginning, recounting the charms and experiences that have led her to the present. A present she never could have expected when she met Jake nearly twenty years ago…
