Izzy's Cold Feet - Sarah Louise Smith
Source: Author request
Izzy is engaged to Greg, who is everything a girl could want.
The trouble is – all she can think about is the men she loved before she met him: sexy Ewan, the first love of her life; dependable Jason, who loved her more than she deserved; and irresistible Dexter, who broke her heart...
Then there's the fact that her sister has been missing since Izzy was twelve. After such a traumatic childhood, all Izzy wants is a normal, happy, settled life, but love is never simple.
In the week leading up to her wedding day, Izzy is forced to ask herself who she loves the most. And, given the choice, who would she want to spend her life with?
Izzy's Cold Feet follows Izzy and her thoughts on a daily build up on the week of her wedding. Having cold feet about marrying fiancé Greg. Bumping into two of her ex boyfriends and receiving a text from another is a reminder of what could have been with them all and the relationships she had with them. This throws her in to complete turmoil and has her analysing everything. To marry Greg or not.
See the thing that gripped me when reading Sarah Louise Smiths debut novel Amy & Zach was the authenticity of the story, how frightfully real the emotions where. A few pages into Izzy's cold feet and we are met with exactly that once again. Raw emotion that grips you around the throat like a strangle. Uniquely surrounded by a buzz of anticipation. An author whose pen writes in liquid gold never ink.
I love, love, loved this book. It is a warm, love story with a back take of complete and utter dismay. From the minute you pick this up you are thrown into a whirlwind of devastation, a hurricane of love and drama. It's fabulous. It has a great mixture of characters who range from Prince Charming (Jason) to the devil himself (Dexter). You will connect straight away with Izzy and her friends as they are down to earth and normal, everyday girls. The plot is thick, fast and gripping and it truly is a brilliant read.
Sarah Louise Smith is climbing up my favourite author ladder step-by-step with each novel she pens. I am so excited to see what she brings out for us next.
A book you will not want to miss out on.
