Meme: Between the Cracks : The Greatest Love Story of All Time

Hello and welcome to a brand new feature on Star Crossed Reviews. When I saw on Twitter that Shaz was starting this new meme I knew I had to join in.

I have over 500 books on my TBR pile on GR and I’m sure there are more. I have over 100 books on Netgalley plus over 350 books purchased from Amazon, plus another 37 ARC’s/books given to me by authors or publishers. On top of that I have 2 bookshelves full of paper books. Quite clearly I have a problem. I get offered a book or I see it’s on sale and I just can’t say no. I go to the supermarket and I have to walk down the book aisle, even if I don’t buy anything.

I recently bought a new kindle (the voyage,  I love it!) and I had to send all my books to my new kindle while I was doing this I noticed many many books that I had forgotten about.

So what book am I talking about this week?

The Greatest Love Story of All Time by Lucy Robinson.

This book has been on my TBR pile for a long time and I recently watched a Hangout with Lucy Robinson and Lindsey Kelk where they talked about their books which got me very excited about this book. I bought this book a few years ago and unfortunately I just haven’t got around to reading it. I am going to make it my mission to read this book before the end of the year.

It’s Fran’s thirtieth birthday and things are good . . .

She’s bluffed her way into a Very Posh Job and her outlandishly handsome and talented boyfriend Michael is escorting her to the Ritz with a bulge the shape of a ring box in his pocket.

But something has gone wrong. Very wrong. By the end of the evening Fran is howling in bed with a bottle of cheap brandy and one of Michael’s old socks.

In her quest to figure out why her life has suddenly gone down the pan, Fran comes up with a failsafe plan: live like a badger, stalk a stranger called Nellie and cancel her beloved Gin Thursdays in favour of drinking gin every night. But then Fran’s friends force a very different plan on her and it’s nowhere near as fun. How could eight dates possibly make her feel better?

But eventually she agrees. And so begins the greatest love story of all time . . .

About Lucy Robinson

The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me – out July 31st 2014 – will be Lucy Robinson’s third book and follows on from the tremendous success of The Greatest Love Story of All Time and A Passionate Love Affair with a Total Stranger.

Prior to writing Lucy earned her crust in theatre production and then factual television, working on documentaries for all of the UK’s major broadcasters. Her writing career began when she started a dating blog for Marie Claire about her fairly pathetic attempts at Internet dating.

Lucy was brought up in Gloucestershire surrounded by various stupid animals. She studied at Birmingham University and lived in London for many years before disappearing off to South America to write her first two novels.

She now lives in Bristol with her partner, The Man. She likes dogs and cheese and horses and seals and cake and baths and she blogs daily about funny things that have made her smile today.

  1. I’m so glad I’m not the only one Emma!

    I am very good on Netgalley though (I’ve only got 13 on my shelf).

    I’ve read Lucy’s debut and really enjoyed it.

    Hope you do get to read The Greatest Love Story of All Time.

    Thanks for taking part.
