A Million Love Songs by Carole Matthews



Ruby Brown is ready for a change. She’s single for the first time in years and she’s going to dive into this brave new world with a smile on her face and a spring in her step. The last thing she’s looking for is a serious relationship.

Mason represents everything Ruby wants right now: he’s charming, smooth and perfect for some no-strings-attached fun. Joe on the other hand is kind and attractive, but comes with the sort of baggage Ruby wants to avoid: an annoyingly attractive ex-wife and two teenage children.

Ruby thinks she knows what she wants, but is it what she needs to be truly happy? It’s about to get emotional in Million Love Songs.

My Review 

Another fabulous book by Carole Matthews ! Perfect for reading anytime, anywhere. This book will leave you feeling content and warm inside – oh and with a book hangover when you have finished it.

I liked how the story was told by Ruby, the main character. Ruby has had her heartbroken and initially seems like she’s happy to stay single but then along comes the lovely, dependable Joe and something awakens in Ruby. I got really excited thinking the story was going to be based around Ruby and Joe but oh no then sleaze-ball Mason gets Ruby’s insides buzzing too ! I really disliked Mason from the off and was definitely cheering for Joe. I saw Mason as Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) in Bridget Jones, especially how he called Ruby by her surname ‘Brown’. This story had a real feeling of Bridget Jones’s Diary. 

I highly recommend this book and hope it’s not the last of Ruby and co. I’d love to read another book featuring these characters and the setting of Milton Keynes.
