This is a love story - Jessica Thompson.

Genre;Chick Lit
Release date; Feb 2nd 2012
This is a love story.

Boy meets girl and girl falls for boy - that much is true.

But when Sienna meets Nick it's not the way it happens in love stories. It's because of a squirrel on water skis...

She sees Nick's dangerous brown eyes and thinks,





Who will be there to catch Siena when she falls? She is so fragile. She has so many secrets, and he is not that serious.

Funny and sad, this is the story of two people destined never to come together in the great love affair they crave more than anything else

This is ultimately a love story, not in the full on "omg i am in love" love story but one of true friendship, real life and proper relationships.  It was written well, and i felt a real bond between the characters, not just a fleeting meeting and falling in love. I felt whilst it was long and at time i found myself impatient i felt it was true and that was lovely.  So Sienna and Nick meet over a water skiing squirrel, and over time, they learn so much about each other, throw in a homeless guy (who i adored, i even shed a tear) and Sienna's Dad, a bunch of unsuitable partners and this is the result. A slow paced beautifully written story.
