Tell me the story of how you two met…
Laura has built a career out of interviewing people about their epic real life love stories.
When she picks up the wrong suitcase at the airport, Laura wonders if this could be the start of something that’s written in the stars.
From piano sheet-music to a battered copy of her favourite book, Laura finds in the bag evidence of everything she could hope for in a partner.
If Laura’s job has taught her anything it’s that when it comes to love, you can’t let opportunity pass you by. Now Laura is determined to track down the owner of the suitcase, and her own happy ending.
But what if fate has other ideas?

Just Haven’t Met You Yet is an uplifting, fun book that had me laughing out loud and cringing in equal measure.
Firstly I absolutely loved the beautiful descriptions of Jersey which have made me want to visit the island. They were really vivid and really helped me picture the island in my mind. I loved all the different areas and delights the island had to offer, especially how the two sides of the island were so different from each other. There seemed to be a wonderful community there too which was great to experience alongside the characters. I often found myself wishing that I was there with them as part of their group.
Laura was an interesting main character who I enjoyed following throughout the book. I wasn’t completely sure I liked her to begin with as I found some of her romantic ideals a bit exasperating but she grew on me as the story continued. She’s a very realistic character and I found her slightly clumsy nature quite endearing. The author includes her inner thoughts into the story which often had me laughing out loud as I read and made me warm to her even more.
The story was very entertaining and I soon found myself drawn into the story. There were many different threads running through the book, including some I weren’t expecting which I found very enjoyable. I soon found myself unable to put the book down as I was really invested in Laura’s story and I has to keep reading to find out what happens. I did guess fairly early on what was going to happen but I enjoyed going along for the journey with her and watching everything unravel.
I highly recommend this book to everyone wanting a romantic, escapist read and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
Huge thanks to Rachel from Arrow publishing for inviting me onto the blog tour and for my copy of this book.
