Book Review of It Was Always You by Georgie Capron

cover114597-medium.pngIt Was Always You by Georgie Capron was published on August 1st, 2017 by Aria, an imprint of Head of Zeus Publishing. Synopsis: Libby has been drifting through life for too long and, now in her early 30’s, it’s time to grow up. She decides to have one last summer of fun before buckling down, so she heads off to beautiful Positano in Italy. There, despite all her good intentions, she can’t help but fall a little in love with the very handsome, but rather naughty, Luca and, as the summer draws to a close, Libby has some big decisions to make. Should she head back home and face up to her responsibilities? Is Luca really the right man to start a family with, or has the perfect man been right in front of her eyes all this time?

And, when it comes to affairs of the heart, is it really better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?

My thoughts: IT WAS ALWAYS YOU is the perfect summer read. Capron writes so vividly that it is easy to get swept away to another place and time. I find this book hard to review without giving away too many spoilers. The main character, Libby, is easy to relate to. She is a thirty something year old that has never had a relationship that has worked out, is moving from one job to another and never able or ready to settle down. There really is not much drama just one major decision that will change her life forever. I felt like I was talking to a friend who is retelling me a story. Overall, I found this to be a light summer beach read but did not find it to be a book I would read again. ** I received an advanced readers copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. **
