But a chance meeting with handsome entrepreneur and father of one, Daniel Taylor, weaves her into a dating gamete’s not sure she’s ready for. Audrey’s life is thrown into further turmoil when she discovers on her return to London that Nick has been involved in a serious accident that’s left him in intensive care. Distraught, yet determined to look to the future, Audrey must make her decision – follow her heart or listen to well-meaning advice from family and friends? Because sometimes, no matter what, it’s the people that we love can hurt us the most.
No Way Back is the second novel by Kelly Florentia, and follows Audrey Fox as she has to deal with two men in her life plus the problems of friends and family. This is a brilliant book, I couldn’t put it down one I started it, I was hooked from the first page. This plot is fast paced with quite a few twists and turns in the lives of Audrey and her friends and family. There are laughs along the way but Kelly also touches on more difficult topics of post natal depression, infertility, and cancer. Kelly writes with such an ease, the plot flows seamlessly which makes this book a joy to read.
What makes this book so readable is the normality of the characters and the situations. Audrey is the kind of person you want to be friends with; she is in her forties, as her mother likes to remind her frequently, single again, and even though she has her own problems she also has time for her friends when that are in need. I loved the fact that she wasn’t this attractive, slim perfect woman as in so many books; Audrey’s hair frizzes, she has put on weight so some of her clothes don’t fit and frequently seems to look frazzled. She is a girl after my own heart with her love of designer shoes, and a new love interest who buys the for her. There is a brilliant cast of supporting characters; George her brother and Vicky his tired and harrased wife, Tina a flirt, Louise her closest friend and her nineteen year old daughter Jess; all of whom had their own problems, and were very down to earth. By the end of the book these people felt like my friends.
No Way Back is a book I loved, it has romance, humour, secrets, lies and designer shoes. It is a brilliant read, with engaging characters and a plot line that will grip you from the first word to the last. After finishing the book I was straight on Messenger to Kelly asking about the sequel which will be published in May 2018. She sent me a teaser and it sounds brilliant, but she wouldn’t tell me anything even though I tried to press her; it is very frustrating. I think Kelly Florentia is an author to look out for in the future.
